Once, a long time ago. I walked into a bar on Martin Luther King, Jr. drive in Milwaukee. I was the only white person in the place. The bartender came over to me and said in a low voice "Are you sure you want to be here?". I had one drink and left. Racism goes both ways. Personally, I have nothing but good feelings for black people. None have ever done me wrong. We're all human. Color shouldn't matter. For some reason, it does.

Wow, I just threw another stereotype into the mix.


Maybe...I don't know. Seemed that the people groups where I grew up tended to really get picky when it came to identify.

People assumed I was "smart" just by looking at me. Oh yeah, this guy kept asking if I ate rice and dumplings or something. It makes me laugh

Not really.

The whole concept of race is absurd. Because we are all animals. Scaly, furry, naked, brown, green, winged, bipedal, ... it doesn't matter. We are all, to a certain degree, related. If you really want to blame someone, do it for their actions.

I support my stereotype in many ways. I think racial stereotypes often hold a grain of truth. Although it doesn't make sense to rely much on them, it's probably good to recognize when it is and is not important to point it out.

I don't care when people tell me I must be smart and that I must be good in math. It's funnier than it is offensive since I'm the worst mathematician you'll likely ever meet (I'm more of a language guy) and I don't think I'm very intelligent.

Karate and ping pong? I did both. Yes, stereotype, but I enjoy them so I don't care. There's nothing for me to deny when it comes to these stereotype.

It's only when they start asking me if I speak English that I start to get slightly annoyed. Objectively speaking, I now have better mastery of the language than most people, even many native speakers. I'm trilingual and currently working on a fourth language. I worked hard to maintain my fluency and to catch up to my peers since everyone else my age here has had a 6 year head start on me.



There are other stereotypes, most of which don't really apply to me since I lived in the states more than in Taiwan, but they are there.

Well the typical Asian stereotype. They think I'm smart and can do everything just coz I'm Asian. Well I can (lol kidding). And sometimes someone would talk to me in Spanish I'm like... O____O???? They said I look like Latina Asian but I don't think so
