When did Khmers EVER own a donut shop?
I've never heard of it actually.
I've seen many who own jewely shops and grocery stores.
I don't know. Most of these aren't true about me or any of the Khmers I know.
Not trying to be offensive or anything.
My mom doesn't like talking about what happened in the past.
My family refuses or tells the same story which has lots of gaps and is totally vague.
