Definitely too asian

This article resonated with me. I held similar attitudes with this girl when I was at UBC. I understand a lot of the stuff she's saying. Entirely worth a read.

MacLean's Too Asian Apology entirely misses the point. Here is an excerpt.

But what the Maclean's article did was tell people who are labeled "Too Asian" that despite their hard work, and their desire to fit in at Canadian schools and in Canadian society, they have never been accepted. Instead, they have been slotted into the usual racial stereotypes. The article tells them they have been grudgingly tolerated at best, and openly resented at worst.
