This is a wonderful app. with Chinese, Korean, and Japanese people and talk about various things.
It’s just amazing how I can interact
Other people might be using this app because they might like wuxia, or they love K-pop, or might be into anime and manga.
But I’m mainly here to get raw Asian perspectives. Those things also help me better understand Asian America.
Here’s the thing: Asian Americans are intrinsically linked to Asia.
You see, we don’t call White Americans “Europeans”.
We don’t call Black Americans “Africans”.
But Asian Americans are still “Asians”.
So someone like me who wasn’t born in or even lived in Asia is still an Asian.
And I happily accept that.
And how Asian Americans are seen here is also an accumulation of how people view countries like China, Korea, and Japan.
That’s how we’re linked and that’s why I still want to share Asian American perspectives.
They may not be typical perspectives you would find from a foreigner, but I feel that makes such perspectives even more meaningful.
