My surprise moment – I’m a minority

Summit, NJ

Technically on this planet I am a majority being of Chinese decent and male, but growing up in suburban white northern NJ I had no minority friends and sometimes would be painfully aware that my immigrant family was quite different from all my friends. All of whom didn’t even have a relative who was born in any other country. But often, in the day to day – I would forget that I was not white, until I would see another minority.
