What kind of Asian are you?

I'm always hoping and praying this country will one day be a place where the term "American" is universally synonymous with "multi-cultural." 

Even at a young age I understood many people in this country considered "American" the same as being white. But in my child's mind I knew that was such a narrow-minded point of view. Like most Asian Americans, I've been asked where I'm from and why my English is so good (though I was born here).

It's why I laughed so hard (almost to tears) when I watched this video. If only I had responded as brilliantly during those times people told me, "Your English is perfect!"
