Well, this video starring Jenny Yang and Eugene Yang was posted on YouTube by Buzzfeed Yellow back in the first week of June, but I still think of the video from time-to-time.
I just took a look, and the video has had over *4 million* views! A lot of the stuff that “white people say,” I can relate to. Thought I’d post for posterity’s sake.
I remember when I started my first job out of college in Connecticut, within the first week I started, when I said I was born-and-raised in Massachusetts, an older colleague of mine asked, “No, where are you really from?” Though as I had blogged before, when I was getting my passport renewed a few years ago in San Francisco, I was asked if I was at there to get my citizenship. WTF?
I really like when the Asian American guy says to the white woman, “You know, I’m really into white girls.” If I were an Asian American woman, I can’t even imagine being on the receiving end of a line from a white guy who would openly say, “You know, I’m really into Asian women.”
Glad to see this video has gone viral and is so popular!
