Favorite Minority Characters?

You know how comics seem to be trying to make the cast as ethnically diverse as possible these days? I thought it'd be interesting to make a thread about your favorite minority characters from any media, for whatever reason.

There are only two rules: 1) you can only use minorities that exist in real life, so stuff like Kryptonians are right out, and 2) you can only use characters that are genuine minorities based on the setting of the story. For instance, you can't choose a Japanese character from anime or manga, because most characters in those are Japanese.

Off the top of my head:

Black: This is a difficult one. To be frank, a lot of black characters are just generic badasses. I'm going to say Storm (X-Men) and Killer Bee (Naruto.)

Midgets: Tyrion Lannister (A Song Of Ice and Fire) I also want to say Edward Elric, but I don't think he counts.

Hispanic: Jaime Reyes (Blue Beetle)

Jew: Kitty Pryde, Spike Siegel

Albino: Tombstone (The Spectacular Spider-Man)

Asian: Doctor Light (The lady one, not the Rapey McRape one), Knives Chau (Scott Pilgrim)

Gay: Hulkling (Young Avengers), Wallace Wells (Scott Pilgrim)

Lesbian: Setsuna Sakurazaki (Mahou Sensei Negima)

Elderly: Iroh (Avatar)

Handicapable: Professor X (X-Men), Toph (Avatar)

My Boom-Boom's mostly gay
I only like white characters.

Agreed. All these minority characters are obviously all just looking for a handout.

Edit: Apologies ahead of time. I'm hooked on Conservapedia, and I think it's warping my fragile, weak, liberal mind.

Conservapedia is made of epic win and lulz. I swear to the gods of the interwebz, it could only be better if it was the vast epic trollbate.

Ummm, you do realize there are more than just the pink eye variant of albino, right?


Secondly, I was being a smartass.


Thirdly, if it hasn't been retconned yet, the Frost girls have brown hair.
