New film about wealthy Chinese in NYC to be released in the US—is this the new world order? As a friend put it: “That made me think of so many things.

The country is only concerned about non-violence if it seems that [black people are] going to get violent.

Read the book! 

I loved this book so much. I think I need to re-read it.

Some will be “offended” and say this plays off a stereotype, i.e. the mistaken belief that all Asians study all the time. Others do not take the world or the Internet so seriously, and are able to laugh both at ourselves and at silly stereotypes. I hope, friends, you fall into the latter category.
