I'm Asian, But I'm Not...

BuzzFeed keeps bringing that Asian American content. In this PSA-like video, I'm Asian, But I'm Not, a bunch of Asian Americans -- by now, if you've seen enough of these videos, you'll recognize a lot of these usual suspects from the BuzzFeed video team -- talk about some of the ways they do or do not defy the usual Asian stereotypes.

Truth. The fact of the matter is, there is no one way to be Asian American. I hope a lot of young Asian American folks see this video and get inspired. It's a simple message, but sometimes it's just helpful to hear.

(And I'm with Ashley -- I really love rice too. Not a damn thing wrong with that.)
