Today I won't talk about Huawei... Actually I want to talk about what I have learned from the perspective of an American born Chinese (and Japanese).
It's strangely amazing to walk the streets here and no one looks at me like I'm some sort of novelty. I'm basically treated and looked at like I'm nobody! Which is AMAZING! That might sound strange, happy to be treated like one of the masses, but honestly I enjoy it. Back in the states, I walk around and people will look at me and sometimes they will stare at me in stores or something like I'm going to rob them... Well here in China, I'm treated as though I have an as equal likeliness of robbing anyone!!
Anyone reading this might be kind of weirded out, and even though you get stares in China, you still won't understand it. Here you may get stared at as a novelty or out of curiosity in the willingness to get to know you. That's not the case in the states. This is not meant to be a remark about race or heritage, but just something I've noted. No one stares at me when I hang out in a group of people with the same race as I. When I visited the Nankai cafeteria with two students, I walked in and NO ONE looked up! Having them ignore me was strangely a form of acceptance to me.
