Eddie Huang Quotes: When We Talked About A Modest Proposal I

When We Talked About "A Modest Proposal" I Felt Like I Was Running Circles Around Everybody. I Understood That Shit Better Than The Professor 'cause He Was Just A Fan. I Wasn't An Irishman, But I Knew How It Felt To Have Someone Standing Over You, Controlling Your Life And Wanting To Call It Something Else. From The People At The Christian Fellowship To First Academy To My Parents To Confucius To Thousands Of Years Of Ass-backwards Chinese Thinking, I Knew How It Felt. Everything My Parents Did To Me And Their Parents Did To Them Was Justified Under The Banner Of Tradition, Family, And Culture. And When It Wasn't Them It Was Someone Impressing Christianity Onto Me And When It Wasn't Christianity It Was Whiteness.
