I just read this article on Yahoo. Normally I would consider it as a news article as JJ requests but then I had this though:
There are many Iranians on this site who claim that America is a racist society. There are many Iranians who constantly complain about how bad Iranian Americans are portrayed in the American media. There are many who just complain and complain....
Well, after reading the article below, What do you think of America? I am sure that if this show actually goes through, we will see some Iranian American weirdo's who will do crazy stuff for ratings. However, the fact that they even consider "Persians" is proof to me that we have made it here in America.

NEW YORK – The production company behind "The Jersey Shore" is looking for Persian-Americans.
495 Productions and Doron Ofir Casting have announced that they're casting a "Persian version" of the MTV hit reality show about young Italian-Americans partying at the beach.
The casting call, which Gawker.com first reported, seeks applicants who are 21 or older, "appear younger than 30 and are outrageous, outspoken and a proud Persian-American."
A spokesman for 495 Productions didn't reply to questions about whether the show had any TV network deal.
"The Jersey Shore" is in production for a second season. Numerous attempts have been undertaken to mimic it, including a Russian-American version set in Brooklyn's Brighton Beach that doesn't yet have distribution
