Reading Wong’s poem I gatherED she was a girl from oriental descent. Growing up she wished she was white because Society viewed the perfect girl was the white, american, and blonde. She talks about how she was separated into the stereotypical smart asian crowd and that stands out to me. The way society view women and the way the stereotype us as being a homemaker, dependant on male and below is the way I viewed society viewing Wong when she was younger. The way she was stereotyped into being the “smart asian” is typical because of most movies and tv shows categorize asianS in that way. The way she talks about she is ashamed of the kind she is in and “The imaginary pale skin” made me almost remorseful for being a part of the society that makes her feel this way.
