Incontinent About The Asian Continent

| Learning | March 1, 2015

(In eighth grade, I take a cooking elective that involves partnering up with two or three other kids in the class. I’m Chinese, and rather obviously so, with an unambiguously Chinese last name and Asian features.)

Partner: “So, [My Name], are you Asian or Chinese?”

Me: “…I’m both. China’s in Asia.”

Partner: “Really?”

(I had to actually get out an atlas and show her that China was in Asia.)
