Black & Asian

“One night I was walking to the parking lot on Sheets Street from Hicks library fairly late at night. As I was walking across the street a man inside the fraternity phi delta theta yelled, “fuck you chink go back to your country.”
I was born in this country. This is my home. How can I not be welcome in the place where I grew up? I’m sick and tired of going to bars and being treated like being Asian is only my identity. Don’t greet me in Chinese or Japanese. It doesn’t make you funny, cool, or interesting. If you’re interested in getting to know someone who is Asian, you can talk to them like a person rather than a character.”
