"Chop-tensils" is a reference to hipster-designed eating implements that combine the form and function of Asian chopsticks with European eating utensils (forks, knives, etc.) Sort of like how I combine being Chinese AND white into an aesthetically-pleasing, functional-yet-acceptable human vessel.
This blog is the take of an ethnically-ambiguous, Chinese/White male. I have a very distinct interest in the racial experience in America, yet I seldom see myself represented in all the blogs and articles I read online. Therefore, in a time when - more and more - people like to talk about mixed-race folks "building bridges of understanding" between races, it seems appropriate to throw my two cents in.
So here's the perspective of an American that walks the line between races - experiencing aspects of many different races without being accepted by any of them.
Read, ponder, and comment, and I hope you learn something (or teach me).
