    Hoang , I really enjoyed this article you wrote about what it’s like to grow up in an Asian family. It was very educational to me. One thing I have thinking about a lot lately is my own view of people of different color or race.

    There was only one black girl in my high school and I never gave it a thought that she was black. Considering I grew up in a very conservative, primarily white ranching community, I wonder why I never felt prejudice? Although, stupidity and ignorance really drives me nuts!

    I just recently read an article about Kelly Marie Tran, the first Asian female to have a lead role in a Star Wars movie. I was just blown away by the harassment she has had to endure and the feelings of low self-worth. I never gave it a thought that she was Asian when I saw this movie. It just never crossed my mind. But it is obviously something she has to deal with every day. I have included a link to the article for you to read.
