I hope he’ll look “American” enough.

I am full Asian and my husband is a quarter Japanese. Once our son was born I asked my husband which one of us will have the responsibility to give him “the talk” about dealing with racism. My husband replied that it had to be me, because even though he was proud of his Asian heritage, he looked “American enough” to not have to deal with racism growing up.
