I can’t even begin to count all the things Asians are known for. A lot of these things are stereotypes or false over-generalizations, but every now and then, we’re told something that really makes us stop and think.
Thats exactly what happened to me when someone told me they found Asian food scary. Of course, my instinctive reaction was to laugh. I grew up on Asian cuisine. How could it possibly be scary?
