    ...an Asian-American could be a gangster.  We just have this notion that Asian and Asian-American gangsters ply their trade within Asian communities in the US, rather than in the country at large.  So I don't think it's so much a behavioral stereotype of the Harold-and-Kumar sort, but a more subtle stereotype that Asian-Americans aren't fully assimilated on the criminal side of things.

    Of course, you could be the breakthrough figure precisely because you're biracial, kind of like Barack Obama!
