If you want me to like you, stay true to yourself. If you're Caucasian, don't try to act like an African-American. If you're Asian, don't try to act Caucasian. Just be whoever you are. I want to see the confidence you have in yourself. That's it. Then I'll like you.
But again, what is being "Asian?" I don't know how to be "Asian." If I was raised in a white community all my life and I have no sense how to be Asian, even if I look it, what do you think that makes me? For the generation of Asian people raised in this country, I think this a problem that all of us have.
People look at me and expect me to act a certain way... because of the way I look... because of the way I was brought up... because of the way I dress. But, hell, just because there's a certain way I look, doesn't mean I have to act a certain way. No, that doesn't make sense at all.
What do you mean "Asian pride?" I don't have to exclude white people from my social circle. I don't even want to. To me, I can still be "Asian" and get along with everyone.
