It’s nice, you know.
Being a – what do they call it again?
I mean, yeah, I’m not white, but
to be completely honest,
I’m about as close to white as you can get.
All the stereotypes about Asians wind up being so positive –
being black makes you a suspect,
being brown makes you a terrorist,
being Asian means you’re good at math
being Asian means you play the violin
(or the piano)
(or maybe both) being Asian means you are the best
and if you’re not, then you work until you are.
But then –
what kind of Asian does that make me? I suck at math
I quit piano in 8th grade; I never even picked up a violin
and I’m definitely not the best at anything.
My dad’s white,
and I could tell you the 50 states & their capitals
before I could name 5 Chinese provinces.
So, yeah, maybe I’m a model minority
But, I guess I’m the minority in a minority
