    I'm white. I'm male. I speak English. I'm straight. I was baptized Protestant. I'm a natural born US citizen. I love my country. Being American is a bag of mixed feelings.

    | Anonymous

    I come from a single family in China, a sloppy kid who got accepted at School attached to Tsinghua university and Beihang Middle school. It is not my choice to choose to go with my mom to America. The value of America for me at that time is just that: I can be with my mom.

    At that time, I knew nothing. Except I will not…
