"Now when they had gone throughout Phrygia and the region of Galatia, and were forbidden of the Holy Ghost to preach the word in Asia,"-Acts 16:6
As a 2nd generation Filipino-American, I've interacted with Asian & Asian-Americans alike since I've grown up in St. Paul. I had 2 nearyby neighbors from Vietnam whom I got along playing baseball, nintendo, and all sorts of games as "little kids". We didn't really talk much about our ethnic-cultural backgrounds as we had similar taste for food, karate/kung-fu, and walking together to Battle Creek Elementary School in east St. Paul.
Then I went through a cultural collision in Battle Creek Middle School, where I didnt' want to associate with Asians at all (testimony). I remember using the term "gook", even though I was called one.
I started searching my roots by getting involved with the Asian Club at Harding Senior High School when I was asked by a close friend (who happened to be Vietnamese). Then at UMM I got involved with the Asian Student Association, where I began to search more of my Filipino identity for many reasons (was asked "Where are you from?", "you speak good English", "what is the Philippines like").
