In case some of y’all are still confused about the concept of

ABC, I’ll just lay it out for you guys
abc就是在美国出生的中国人,我们都是美国公民,但是我们看上去和你们一样,但是我们并不是国籍意义上的中国人,所以下次不要再问Are you Chinese?
As ABCs, we face a lot of racial discrimination from some of the other groups of people in the U.S. However, I’ve recently realized that we face the same thing even in China! I have some abc friends here in Shanghai who were looking for an English-teaching job but got rejected because of their looks. “You look too Chinese, the parents won’t trust you.” And next thing they saw was some Ukrainian dudes walking into the office and got the jobs. ABSOLUTELY RIDICULOUS.
那么有些人可能会问了,abc的文化认同是什么?Well, that depends. 用我举例的话,我非常认同中华文化,我父母从小就和我说中文(上海话),我基本上每年也会回中国一次或两次,我直到小学二年级之前都在美国,之后我在中国读到初二便重新回去了,在英国上了一年高中后我就回到了美国直到现在大学也还在美国上学,目前在中国是因为病毒的缘故。我也很喜欢中文歌,说中文的各种方言。 有些人可能就不是如此,他比较喜欢白人的文化,有个derogatory的名词叫white-washed asians,也就是你们俗称的香蕉人,这类人他们可能如果你叫他Chinese他会更生气。
希望大家以后搞清楚这些事情不要问一些奇奇怪怪的问题了谢谢

    ABC最终都需要面对这个令人痛苦的身份认同终极问题,自己究竟是Chinese还是American? 但无论走向哪一方,最终都还是难以被认同。因为和美国人或是中国人都有隔阂,只有ABC这个群体才能互相理解。

    我正相反,在美国好几年了经常有人问我你是不是亚洲其他国家的人,他们说我不像中国人😂

    @Kordae Chow 我也希望,但不看好。Andrew Yang很聪明,但越是聪明越当不了总统。因为选Trump大多数就是red neck。美国社会严重撕裂,用身份标签愚民,割裂族群。亚裔忙着讨论常春藤入学身份细分。底层黑人忙着毫无结果地愤怒。底层白人没有渠道发声。我觉得川建国会连任,你说呢?

    @Kordae Chow pop off kingggg periodddd🙌🏼 racism in America has gotten worse, thanks to trump, people are using their white privilege the wrong way. it’s unbelievable that we’re on the 21st century and this is still happening. they forget that we are the same, we have a heart, eyes, nose, etc., and they forget we eat and go to the bathroom equally, so why abusivo your white power? 😌
