It's time for another installment of "I Have To Deal With Something Racial Every Day"!!!
While visiting my sister at Yale, I went to an "arts and crafts" study break hosted by one of the residential colleges on campus. There was a nice Asian-American girl who was leading a session on origami and teaching people how to fold paper cranes.
I used to be quite proficient at origami, if I may say so myself, and I would take delight in all these delightful paper projects. However, it has been many years since I last folded a paper crane.
Since it had been so long since I last "origami'd," I was having quite a bit of difficulty folding my paper crane at this study break. I asked for some assistance from the girl leading the session, and when she came by, she told me, "Oh, I just assumed you would be really good at Origami and wouldn't need help because you're Asian."
