However, there are parts of the world where being Asian/Chinese isn’t assumed to be a disease. In Singapore, there’s even a concept called Chinese privilege. And to be completely honest, I feel it. I genuinely recognize and benefit from that privilege. But, can you imagine those in America who have privilege to have the same level of self-awareness?

I can relate to this, as a Filipino-American. I am so self-aware of my privilege in the Philippines it hurts, and it bogs my mind that the privileged in the US doesn’t even think their privilege exists.
