For most of the 20th century, race in America was defined in terms of black or white. Asians were just not part of the conversation. But as we step into the 21st century, Asian-Americans have become one of the fastest-growing groups in America, slowly changing ideas about racial identity and America's ethnic landscape. Join Neal Conan for a conversation with Frank Wu, author of Yellow.
