What kind of Asian are you?

Have you guys seen this video? It’s hilarious and it hits home when it comes to people asking, “Where are you from?”

I’ll typically say “here” because I’ve never left this country a single minute of my life. They’ll respond to that by saying, “No, where are your parents from?”

“They’re Chinese.”

“You see what I mean. So you’re from China.”

“I am not from China. I’m from here,” I retort.

“No, I’m from here. I’m Black (sorry that was the last conversation I had about this topic). I’m American and you’re not.”

… True life experience with a homeless man on the train about two years ago. Now when I do tell people my heritage is Chinese, they still don’t believe me. What do you want me to say?! :P Anyway, here is the video that had me cracking up. Enjoy!
