I used to work at my dad’s Chinese restaurant answering the phone and taking orders. One time a man came in to pick up his order and was shocked that I was Chinese. He out right told me I did not sound Chinese when I was on the phone with him taking his order. He told me I spoke very good English as if it was a compliment and then tried to get me to join his faith youth group.
It saddens me when people are not even aware of their behavior and the stereotypes they hold.
