In 2016, NYT reporter Michael Luo—who was born and raised in the U.S.—was told by a stranger to “Go back to China!” His 7 year old daughter was there when it happened and later asked him, "Why did she say, ‘Go back to China?’ We’re not from China.” Since then countless Asian Americans have recognized the problem of “perpetual foreign syndrome” often disguised in the form of the classic question, “No, where are you from, really?"

What's less often talked about is whether it's possible to ask that question in a way that's NOT insensitive, offensive, or quite frankly, racist. I believe there is. In this special episode, Eugene and I discuss this and several other challenging questions related to our divergent Asian American identities. As always, thanks for listening!
