things you should never say to asians in the office

This is a great segment from NPR's Tell Me More, the first of a series of conversations on things you should "never say" to co-workers about their race, faith, sexual orientation or other elements of their identities. Here, DiversityInc. co-founder Luke Visconti executive Anna Mok discuss some things you should never say to Asian American colleagues in the workplace: Magazine Series: What Never to Say.

Here's the original article from DiversityInc: 7 Things NEVER to Say to Asian-American Executives. It's got the usual offenses, like "Where are you from? No, where are you really from?" and "Oh, you speak English good!" My personal favorite is "You don't act very Asian." I guess that's supposed to be a compliment?
