A Quick Letter To White People Who Know Nothing About China And U.S. Relations

Dear White People Who Know Nothing About China And U.S. Relations,

First, I'm not saying that there aren't White People who don't know anything about the politics between China and the U.S.,
because there obviously are, but as an FYI to those WP who think they do but really don't - and you're trying to show how erudite you are about the topic with someone who actually knows what they're talking about and keeps on correcting you (and just happns to be Chinese American and happens to work in a field where it's there job to know these things) but you keep on saying things like "But when I was in Thailand I heard..." - you kind of look like a dumbass. There's nothing wrong with being a dumbass because hey - just look at me - but it doesn't really help with the all too pervasive image of the White Person Who Must Know Everything Especially If It's Something About Asia.

And while I know some of you will take this the wrong way, you really shouldn't because I'm just trying to help out and do my part for the White Community.

Because I'm a giver.

All the best,


Yes it's true that I can't help listening to other people's conversations.
