YouTube Comedy: What Kind of Asian Are You?

When I saw the title of this YouTube video, I was wondering what it was all about? (like, Model Minority Asian? Hipster Asian?)

When I saw a white guy approaching the Asian American woman, I thought this video might be about yellow fever. But the question comes up from “Where are you from?”  (as in the micro-agressive question – “Where are you *really* from?”) a question many of us can relate to.

This smartly written and performed comedy bit has a twist and makes some very keen observations and reminds me of my blog post on “I’m from Denver” from the television sitcom Modern Family and the time when I was getting my passport renewed and was asked, “Are you here for your citizenship?” I got a real big laugh out of the video and hope you enjoy it too – for its comedic yet observant commentary.

Thanks for rating this! Now tell the world how you feel - .
