“Angry Asian Man.”

Not all anger is born of vanity; some of it is grounded on self-respect .

How can I be “ashamed” of U.S. history?

I never assumed I should be “proud” of it in the first place.

I would put you down.

Literary bestiary.

The lions do not to attack the porcupine wandering through their pride. How hilarious—they assume those quills are for fighting!

My finances will hold up, my pride was not so lucky.

Asian pride is mostly harmless.

It’s the Asians who are proud of not being Asians that I worry about.
