Hello, brother! I have a white Dad and Chinese Mom, and I was born in the US in 1965!! My folks met double-dating other people, just like Harry Met Sally. 🤣

Lmao, I’d love to know what you define as “REAL American”

Edit: Awh, stay mad ☹️

Probably someone descended from a native group rather than a colonising group based on the context clues...

Yawns, that made no sense. Try again buddy. 😐


billboswaggns t1_ixs85ym wrote

Couldn't be a more clear statement. You asked how they define real American I said prob diff than you. You're a troll or a walnut, and an emoji user. Yuck

Ew you’re weird. Congrats on being an old geezer who has 0 social media literacy ? Lmao. Your comment added literally nothing to the discussion, but thanks buddy.

>Yawns, that made no sense. Try again buddy. 😐

Lol as if this comment added something valuable to the conversation. Your having pointless arguments on the internet with a stranger you will never hear from again that will go NOWHERE. Maybe their is some symbolism there. Yes, yes I did.


EatAtCozi t1_ixseewk wrote

Are you okay? Was the 1 minute you spent typing up this obvious and pointless text worth it? No one cares bud. You’re weird for that. Continue scrolling and minding your business cus the convo is already over. No one wants to read your incoherent rambling.


billboswaggns t1_ixsg5wu wrote

An old geezer? Not by a long shot, this just isn't the emoji platform. I feel bad for you if you're really young and already so angry. However, your troll game is weak af not entertaining, so I'm out


EatAtCozi t1_ixsgmyd wrote

Imagine trying to police people’s use of emojis on an online platform, really weird. Also didn’t ask, sorry you feel that way. You’ll live. Adieu* freak.

Hey man, I just had to drop a couple classes last semester bc I got the flu for a week, was in condensed courses and was planning a wedding. The stress almost killed me, once I got thru the big events the pressure got better and I felt better about school again. I'm sorry you're having a hard time, I hope you get your school stuff sorted and have great success in all your endeavors. Im a returning transfer student myself after a long break to get off drugs and raise an oops baby mostly alone. I hope you don't let the stress of the upcoming holidays compound with this school issues. Be blessed friend.

Someone whose family line is indigenous to America. The Yupik people are native to Alaska, so OP’s lineage is entirely made up of people born in America unlike most Americans whose ancestors are from other countries.


Bladelink t1_ixri3av wrote

Really! I was sitting here expecting her to be someone from the East because of the post-war timing, and because I'm ignorant and bad at identifying people. That's fascinating though.


MasterDragon13 OP t1_ixrikl0 wrote

Yeah, when I was in the Navy (west coast) I actually had Asian people argue with me about my ethnicity.


Bladelink t1_ixrj3l7 wrote

It's weird to me that people do that. My reaction is more like "oh sorry for presuming, I'm just some moron," lol.


MasterDragon13 OP t1_ixrjp8a wrote

Asking and learning is one thing, and I'm happy to talk about stuff. I grew up in racist areas, so they didn't want to talk, just bully. In that part of Asia/SE too, they thought I was ashamed of my Asian heritage! LoLz. I'm a half breed, obviously, so, you know how that song goes. I can laugh about it now


RunninOnMT t1_ixs8uco wrote

Hahah I’ve definitely had this happen to me. People think I’m Latino (mixed Chinese/white)

My aunt told me about a customer at her job who just up and started speaking Spanish to her thinking she could understand. My aunt's Filipina and just talked to her in english.


wackyDELYyeah t1_ixug8mk wrote

My dad is the person who will go up to people and start speaking Spanish to them. One time he went up to one guy who was just like “Um, I’m Hawaiian.”


ABKB t1_ixso5d7 wrote

You do a 23andme? I will bet you will be surprised.


RunninOnMT t1_ixs96bg wrote

Me too! I was born in 1982. I was in college the first time I saw a mixed Asian/white person who was a middle aged adult with my own eyes. It was such a shocking realization that I’d never encountered that racial makeup in anyone older than me (other than my sister who was a few years older than me.)


Xmeromotu t1_ixsa8rd wrote

People never have any idea about me. They mostly just think I’m probably white … but I look 20 years younger than I should. 🤣 But I’ve had people think I was “Hispanic” (not sure how they defined the term, but basically south of the border), “Choctaw,” which was I assume a catch-all for all Native Americans, “Eskimo,” and all kinds of other wrong guesses. People want to find a label even where there isn’t really a good one available.

I live in the South, and when I was about 40, a friend’s mother told me that everyone used to point to me and my brother to prove that the school or country club or other institution was “integrated.” She said people were pretty shameless about it! Of course, Henry Cho has made a nice career of a similar life story, so that’s not necessarily a bad thing. 👍

Ok delete this now and repost saying you are actually the dad in the middle, but you have some rare genetic disorder that makes you look like a baby. The guy on the left is your son.

Um, thank you. I was until about 6 years ago, lol. They consider me, dependable. 12 in the Navy and raising 4 kids on my own. I think they were a lil proud. 🤗

MasterDragon13 OP t1_ixs2ae2 wrote

I did use to laugh a lot. I was also rather precocious. At about 4 I was bound and determined to play in my other g.Aunts house, and she play with me. I discovered the coal bin. We came out of there randomly covered in coal dust. I would have gotten in trouble, but Biffie was having none of that.

I don't know if you're referring to my father or myself, but I'm sure either of us would like to be that young again, lol

ploptones t1_ixt979k wrote

Wow- why did you have to say that? It was extremely rude, and something you would never say in person to someone’s face. Please grow a heart. Or at the very least- learn some manners. And of course they are disabilities. Educate yourself about this type of pain, and what it is like to walk a day in their shoes. Anyone who is still working (or not) who has these disabilities goes through pain 24 hours a day. Talk to some of those people you work with and ask them what they think the future holds for them.


[deleted] t1_ixt9qko wrote

Jesus you sound like every cliche. I won’t ask them because I honestly don’t give a shit. But op isn’t actually disabled like can’t walk he just has some mental issues that you could easily hold a job with and not rely on tax payers.


MasterDragon13 OP t1_ixt43w9 wrote

According to SSA and the military, PTSD qualifies as such, and I get paid accordingly.


MasterDragon13 OP t1_ixt44je wrote

The law defines disability as the inability to engage in any substantial gainful activity (SGA) by reason of any medically determinable physical or mental impairment(s) which can be expected to result in death or which has lasted or can be expected to last for a continuous period of not less than 12 months.


MasterDragon13 OP t1_ixt4695 wrote

Some examples of common disabilities you may find are: vision Impairment. deaf or hard of hearing. mental health conditions. intellectual disability. acquired brain injury. autism spectrum disorder. physical disability.
