Asians on the Rise in Austin

http://www.statesman.com/news/local/asian-population-surges-in-austin-1460337.html?viewAsSinglePage=true

I find the responses to the article more interesting than the article itself. To an extent, I agree that there is more of a natural acceptance of Asians in comparison to other minority races and that the writer could have dodged the racial implications more gracefully, but readers have to be aware that there was no intent to draw any conclusions about the good vs. bad to an Asian influx. The information is presented optimistically and to raise doubts and point fingers in other directions would not only have detracted from the article, but would have been irresponsible and beyond the journalistic scope of the piece.
