A Letter To White People Who's Cars Break Down

Friday, June 27, 2008

Dear White People:

If your car or pickup truck breaks down in the middle of the night and you happen to be in my neighborhood, if I stop and get out of my car, it's not to jack you. It's simply to help you.

Now I know you see movies about getting jacked by people of color, but let's get real here and just be honest and say that white people jack as many cars as non-white people, and just like white people who get out of their car to stop and help, so can Asian Americans like me.

I don't want your brokedown pickup truck.

I just want to help get it out of my neighborhood.
