The question every Asian-American hates – Miss Space, 1959 – ephemera #2

For dinner last night, I went to a favorite Mediterranean take-out place. As always, they had the doors open and the a/c turned up high, which is fantastic from a health perspective but challenging when you’re waiting for your food.

“The question every Asian-American hates: Where are you from?”

Particularly interesting to me because I routinely ask people where they are from. So this is something for me to think about.

For me, my answers would be: San Diego, lived in California more than 25 years, from New York, still think of myself as an expatriate NYer.

Shouldn’t Miss Space be from Space, not Dallas?
