[Read the first installment of "Race Wars."]
Malaysian blogger "The Constantly Dramatic One" of Dramatic Musings recently wrote a post titled "I'm racist. You're racist.... So what happens now?," which explains why she harbors prejudice against Chinese teenagers and white people. (Can you blame her?) Her blog prompted me to write a little bit about something that's been on my mind for a while:
Have you ever been out to dinner at a restaurant with a group of white people and then subsequently been out to dinner at a restaurant with a group of Asian people? If you have had experience with both, then you know what I'm about to say.
White people can't figure out the bill for shit! They take a really long time attempting to figure out how much their portion of the check is, and the money that is eventually collected will inevitably be substantially short of the total. The bill then gets passed around and around and around until one person in the group is so frustrated with the state of things that he or she will cover the remaining balance in order to preserve the sanity of the collective.
With the Asians, it's a whole different story. Asians—even the ones bad at math—will calculate what they each owe rather quickly, and there will usually be more than enough money at the end, and cash winds up getting redistributed back to everyone in the group.
It's true, bitches!
Does this happen to you too? Do you know what I'm talking about?
