“I’m white. You’re not and I don’t know how to deal with that.”
“and it certainly doesn’t make you appear more cultured if you’re a white heterosexual man.”
“framed in rivalry with a white women in terms of competing for idealized heterosexual femininity”
“I once was told by a white man”
“she points out that Asian-Americans constantly having to stand up against white standards of beauty.”
“What white guys think I like”
“What white girls think I like”

I actually agree with most of what you say in this article but when you go on about micro aggression then behave as though it’s only white people who stereotype asians it makes you come off as a hypocrite. Yes, white people are the majority where we both live and yes, the majority tends to have the most ignorant views about minorities but I have met black, spanish and middle eastern men who have an equally dysfunctional perspective on what “little china girls” are supposed to be.
