When I first saw that she was Japanese, I admit I kind of groaned. I thought: great, token Japanese character. But now I realize she doesn't sound, act, or hardly even look it, and THAT is something that's a little strange to me. I was expecting her to mumble to herself in Japanese, or prefer writing in it, or maybe at least read and translate a letter from her parents, or SOMETHING. Part of me is thinking: Well, Jack and Raf are white, and you don't see them acting overly so, so why should Miko? But then I wonder what the point of making her Japanese is, if she's going to look/act/sound white, anyway? I figured something would be referenced once or twice (I thought maybe she would offer little tidbits about Japan, even though she seems to find it boring and prefers America), but it IS only the first season, so I guess there's still time. Does that sound really racist, or something? I didn't intend it to. I'm not good at explaining myself. If anyone knows what I mean and agrees, and can explain it in a less offensive/stupid sounding way, have at it.
