woe to the lady.. Colonial Marine - 19/01/2003 03:25:37 AM

The story goes on, the narrator's passionate voice (all NPR narrators sound passionate: "This is Freeeaasssh Air" ), and the young Chinese woman responds to a question about Americans. Ah, I think, Americans. I'm one of those. So this twenty-something starts talking about what a divide there is between America and China (she is laughing, giggling; cute, I imagine, with a stylish French boyfriend) and she says that Americans don't know much about China. Fair enough, I think. I nibble on some cauliflower. Watch the flow of traffic. They all think we still bind our feet, she says, they seem so innocent.

I think shes Chinese but grew up in America when her parents immigrated and probably been fed too much taco bell thing, which you people have....

I'd probably also say that Americans dont know much about Chinese but not using that example.

I guess "pride" and "emotional" pops into my mind, but these are stereotypes, just as she stereotyped americans.

Here, the girls do giggle and are sometimes annoying. Once, I was trying to take a photo of my friends when a gang of girls leaped in posing with the 'V' sign and saying together "YEAH!!!!!"
