You’re 8 years old. Your 3rd grade class orders chinese food & your father delivers it. You are so excited to see your pops in school. He’s your hero. But apparently other kids don’t think he’s so cool. They laugh at him and mimic his accent. You don’t want to be Chinese anymore.

The biggest mystery in U.S. history is how a country can go from electing a brilliant, caring, sincere African American as President, and then 4 years later replace him with a stupid, sexist, white supremacist pig. It's almost as if another country sabotaged us.
