    . 1. I can drive (I think lol) 2. I'm only proficient in Math, not freaking genius. 3. I'm tan, not super white. 4. I have double lids, & I don't wear glasses. 5. I can fluently speak ''Engrish.'' 6. I can't play piano. 7. I believe I do have curves. 8. Chinky eyes, but not tiny...

    Getting used to have 'Ching-Chong' on my face

    LOL. However, seriously, I'm not mad. It's not because they're racist, it's because they know you too well. :D Besides, I'm thankful to be called 'Ching-Chong' cause they notice that I'm Asian. Some people don't believe because sometimes, to American and Australian for example...

    I Don'T Feel Like I'M Asian

    I'm a 17 year old boy and I am of Korean descent. But truthfully, I've never felt asian my whole life so far and thats why I'm writing this. I have a lot to say about myself: outcast, leper, loser, etc. But my whole life, the one label I really hate is ASIAN. I can't say its not...

    The divide between different types of Asians.

    ..I am Asian-Australian, born in Australia and for a number of reasons and experiences, growing up I was very dismissive and embarassed of my culture (which I now regret) to the extent that while I am able to understand people and generally get by if I had to, I'm too embarrassed...

    My mother always told me

    that it was possible to stretch my body to be tall and dainty-looking. Are all Asian moms like this? Btw, I'm only 5'2 and my body stature is muscular and sort of thick. :/

    South Korea Has Seoul (∩ ▂ ∩)

    Asians represent! We have that SWAG (something we asians got) that no one else has. Not only are we stereotypically intelligent but what better jokes and stories about our culture and family no one else can understand. Here is to us

    For a long time, I was ashamed of my culture.

    I hated being Asian. I felt as if I was cursed with stereotypes that would follow me around from the day I was born til' my departure from this earth. I am constantly compared to other Asians and I was just longing so much to look like a Caucasian. My parents grew up in America...
