Everyone deserves to be labeled how they like. They don’t have to fit into a box. They may call themselves “American”. They don’t have to be eligible to fit into your stereotyped check boxes. American is a place where people go to fit in. They deserve equality, just like the so called “white man” that is compared to for these stereotypes.
Equality is earned by being human. It isn’t by having a certain skin tone. It isn’t by originating someplace in the white- region or America. It is earned in America, as we all deserve these rights to Equality. If you want to be known as American be known as american. You don’t have to be “asian-american”. You are whoever you want to be.
People come to American to be free. Maybe physically they are, but mentally, they are behind bars. Those bars are the lines between what they are seen as, and their mental state can represent who they want to be. They are American. Not “Asian-American”. They choose to be American, so that’s what they are. Equality is everything in America, and denying someone the same equality that you have is not true support.
