…totally cracks me up. Here is her essay On Being Asian, from which I quote:

Another issue I have is that I forget that I AM ASIAN. Seriously. I forget that I don’t look like you other white people. Maybe that’s why I hate dealing with immigrant Asians because they always ask the same questions: “Are you Chinese? You’re not? Because you look Chinese!” I never know what to say. Is there a blood test that I can take to find out? The other question is always: “Are you married to a white man?” (Yes.) I don’t know why the questions are always the same. Is there some kind of Asian Adoptee survey going on that I don’t know about? Because if there is? I’VE ALREADY TAKEN IT.
