Fear and hate only bring sadness.

I am Chinese and get profiled as Native American, followed in stores, refused for rentals. Kids have asked me if I wear a coolie hat or when I’m going home (to China). I’ve lived in my small Wyoming town for 30 years and my kids (Eurasian) were born here. I try to educate, especially kids who just haven’t met a Chinese person. But it hurts and gets tiring. I am proud of my heritage, family, language, education. I just try to make a difference with whoever I touch.
