Racism IS funny

I've been in China for a while now. It has been equally exciting and soul crushing.

To make money I've taken a job teaching english as a second language. The students are Chinese and about 12 years old. I truly and whole heartedly hate kids. But, the other day I was delighted. Two of my students were tormenting one other student. I didn't know what was going on, but the one weiner kid was weeping. Because I wanted to seem like I cared I asked the two "mean" kids to cut it out. Then I asked them what they were doing.

They told me they were just being funny. They were teasing the third kid because, "he looks Japanese". Yup.
