I kept thinking if I should post what I thought about Sung's recent tweet, but I kind of decided to do. What I mean by "kind of" here is that I'm still not sure if I can make it sound fair to everyone. But let me try. This is what he said:
Happy Ni Hao Ma New Year everyone! Be happy, be sincere...as we yellow people say 'love you long time' Ha!
— Sung Kang (@sungkang) January 31, 2014
OK. I don't mind Asians call ourselves as "yellow people." That's not the part that got me. But when he said, "Happy Ni Hao Ma New Year" and pretended like speaking a broken English. I know I know, he doesn't meant to hurt anyone's feeling. And I am not offended. I'm not a Chinese, neither. But as a first generation in USA, I've seen quite a bit of so called "Generation Gap" between his type of people and my type of people. It does not bother me. "Bother" does not sound like a right word for me. And I know we cannot change this anyway. So, just take it or forget it. That's what I should do. But when I see that coming from Sung, I just feel a little bit sad because I'm one wall away from him. We don't have to be on the same group people to be friends or family. We all have something different. But I hope such reminder does not come from Sung all the time that makes me feel I'm not one of his group of people.
This is called over-reacting. So, don't worry about anything. As you know, I'm running out of topic, too. So, that's the biggest reason I'm writing this. We still love you like crazy, Sung!
