14 Questions Asian Americans Are Tired Of Hearing

Some people just don't understand that not all Asians are exactly the same.

13. People asking, "Do you eat dogs?"

No, we do not eat dogs. Some Asian people eat them, but I do not, and not every freaking Asian in the world does too. This one of the worst things to ask an Asian. I mean, what kind of messed up stereotype is this?

12. "Do you play a lot of video games?"

Some don't like to admit it, but others are super proud. This is one Asian skill we're all going to be awesome at. Like Super Smash Bros. I've never met another Asian who can't slay at this game.

11. "All Asians are geniuses."

I don't doubt the capabilities of my brain, but us Asians study just as hard as you guys do to get our grades. Some of us are Bsians, some of us are Csians, but we're always proud of being Asian. A for awesome, right?

10. "Wow! You went to that school? Do you know (list of a ton of Asian names)?"

NO, WE DO NOT KNOW EVERY ASIAN IN THE SCHOOL OR CITY, AND WE ARE NOT RELATED TO THEM. Okay, maybe we'll know a couple, but seriously, there's a reason we secretly enjoy being called "white-washed".

8. "Are you sure you're 21?"

Apparently Asians have the secret to the fountain of youth. We don't look old until maybe our 50s? You ALWAYS get carded, and even if it is your actual age 21 ID, the people never believe you.

6. "You're Asian, you know what Asian video I'm talking about."

Sure, I've seen a good amount of Jackie Chan movies, but no, I do not know whatever Asian kung fu mood you are referencing too. So please stop before I "HIIIYA!" you're ass.

2. "Wait you're Asian, how come you're not good at math?"

ONCE AGAIN, NOT ALL OF US ARE NATURALLY SMART GENIUSES, WE STUDY UNTIL OUR BRAINS FEEL LIKE EXPLODING JUST LIKE THE REST OF YOU.
