…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 donâ€™t look like you other white people. Maybe thatâ€™s why I hate dealing with immigrant Asians because they always ask the same questions: â€œAre you Chinese? Youâ€™re not? Because you look Chinese!â€ I never know what to say. Is there a blood test that I can take to find out? The other question is always: â€œAre you married to a white man?â€ (Yes.) I donâ€™t know why the questions are always the same. Is there some kind of Asian Adoptee survey going on that I donâ€™t know about? Because if there is? Iâ€™VE ALREADY TAKEN IT.
