Suburban white kids nicknamed me Chinaman

Aaron Yeh,
Las Vegas, NV.

White mother, Chinese father, I was raised by my mom and don’t speak Chinese. Sometimes I look in the mirror and my Asian features surprise me. It’s startling how I identify more with being ‘white’ than anything else. The “other” box on forms asking my ethnicity has always comforted me, like there’s a half-breed bureaucrat out there who understands.
