Oooh, point to Hanna!
The look on Eve's face is reminiscent of a boy who flaunts his Jewish heritage only to realize he never had a Bar Mitzvah.
Good point, Adama!
But I think I'd have to side with Eve on this one.
I agree with Hanna and Adama. Not saying that the arcade was a good or bad idea, but that people who act so proud of their heritage and flaunt it, when they really have no idea what they are talking are annoying. Sorry Eve.
On an unrelated note, I like the new hat.
hah, oh white kids.
Fun fact: most kids who hang out in arcades are either asian or black, I’m pretty much the only white guy who frequents my local place.
These comics get more brilliant each and every time I re-read them! It's crazy, I actually feel like I understand them better as I get older–I just discovered them a year ago, I think. Keep writing! I can't wait for the next update!
I don't necessarily agree with the Hanna party on this one.
To know about a culture in order to want to preserve it is mediocre in my opinion.
Yes, to walk without bases is mediocre, but it's worse to be afraid to step forward.
I don't need to learn about Tibet in order to disagree of its situation.
Eduardo, the point is Eve is of Asian descent (presumably Chinese), her complaints are unjustified because she seems to know as much about her OWN culture as the white kids she is disparaging.
If you can count to 10 in Chinese you can count to 99!
Is Eve 2nd generation or 3rd?
She's 2nd generation I think because when her Dad appeared in an earlier strip his English wasn't fluent.
On this issue I'm with Eve, she should have an opportunity to explore her heritage at some point. If she doesn't it's not that she will have a cultural vacuum but she will have the homogeneity of anglo-american culture.
well i know chinese:
Its not for people of one culture to judge/quantify the cultural authenticity of someone from a different culture to their own.
To do that is to impose a foreign idea of what a "real" Chinese person looks like (in this circumstance) and ignore the diversity between people that exists within a culture. Ethnic populations are not homogenous and Hanna, in this case is displaying ignorance of the reality of living as a Chinese American (eg. some Chinese Americans don't speak Chinese). Just because Ning doesn't speak Chinese doesn't mean her opinion on the arcade is hypocritical or invalid – in fact they are two different points of discussion altogether.
