Don’t You Speak Asian?

| NJ, USA | Learning | May 10, 2017

Teacher: “Is this yours?”

(Show me pencil case with a lot of Japanese words on it.)

Me: “No, it’s not.”

Teacher: “Well, it must be someone here! It wasn’t here last class. You’re the last Asian I’ve asked.”

Me: “Why can’t a non-Asian have one?”

Teacher: “It’s silly because they can’t read it.”

Me: “Well, I can’t either. I’m Chinese. But anyone can learn a foreign language or just like the look.”

(The teacher walks away and puts the case on her desk in plain view. At the end of the class a black student picks it up.)

Teacher: “What does it say?”

Student: “No idea. Bought it on a trip to Japan.”

(The teacher was dumbfounded.)
