Book Review

American Born Chinese

Read this all in one day. It was really good, but also it was a quick read. I couldn’t help but think of my book proposal while I read this and how similar (growing up in a conflicting environment between personal culture and North American culture) and yet different (my life is very gay) it is. 140 more words


Review: Boxers & Saints

The Boxer Rebellion is an instance of what the hell were you thinking you western imperialists? It was a pretty awful time all around. Basically, the western powers wanted to infiltrate China for her raw materials and did so with Christian missionaries, assuming that the Chinese religion and way of life was “heathenism.” (NEWSFLASH, THEY WERE WRONG.) They were driven by that imperialistic greed that this modern girl simply does not understand and is, in fact, fairly ashamed of. 650 more words
