#thisis2016 / by An Huynh

This video is everything. It's those little comments that might sound harmless or funny that hurt. And they hurt deep. For me getting questions like "Where are you actually from?" is common. I've come to expect it and answer lightheartedly. It's when someone cat calls me with "China!" or when a professor asks me if I'm an international student only after seeing my name does it remind me that these stereotypes are out there and manifestations of them happen to us daily.
