@Sylvia, lol don't worry. I don't exactly know either
@Galaxian. Yeah, I've gotten insulted too, and all of my friends as well. It doesn't matter whether they're first-gen Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Indian, etc. If you're a minority, you're going to get insulted.
The thing is, at my school, we have a decent amount of Asians. (Around 11%? 14%?) So we all sort of group ourselves together into our little cliques and share our hurt. There are also a few really smart non-Asians that hang out with us, but besides them, nobody else really bothers us. Unless they want us to do their homework, to which we try to ignore them and all.
I think I'm really lucky compared to other ABC's. I've grown up in places with relatively nice-sized Asian communities. Even the church I go to is a Chinese church. (Like 99.99999% Chinese)
I mean, some of the worst things for me actually happen when I visit China with my family. I know here in the U.S. there's this whole "You're not American enough haha Chinese person," but I when I went to my mom's hometown, everyone would stare at me pityingly when they found out that I could understand English and Mandarin, but not Minnanhua. (The dialect that my mom grew up with)
And my uncle went through my pencil case and found a wooden pencil and was really confused, like "No, this can't be an American pencil. This looks like the pencils we have here." He then pulled out a mechanical pencil and was like, "Ah, yes. This is an American pencil." I think he failed to notice that both pencils had the names of the American companies printed out on the side in English.
Honestly, it is a very sensitive subject. But it's also one of the things that binds my friends and I together, because we all understand that. It's something we all have in common, even if it's slightly superficial.
