AUSTIN, TX—Local resident Ted Cho has two separate groups of friends, one of which only has Asians in it, the 25-year-old software developer’s non-Asian friends reported Tuesday. “He has the group of friends I’m in—mostly people he knows from work or college—but then he has this whole other set of just Asian friends we’ve never hung out with for some reason,” said coworker Bruce Hollis, 26, noting that Cho is frequently seen in Facebook photos having dinner or drinks with four or five Asian people their age whom Hollis never sees in person. “Sometimes when we invite him out he already has plans with his Asian friends, and we’ll suggest he bring them along. He’ll say, ‘Yeah, maybe we can meet up later,’ but somehow it never happens.” Hollis added that the one time he bumped into Cho with his Asian friends they were all speaking English, so he really doesn’t see what the big deal is.
