"Do you mind being stared at all the time?" my friend Jiani asked me the other day. She's Cantonese, so no one gives her a second glance. I don't actually mind. It's hard for me to imagine exactly what Chinese people must think when they see me because I've always lived in relatively heterogeneous communities. My high school was mostly white, but certainly not as white as Beijing is Asian. That's the thing about America, isn't it? Yet it's taken so little time for me to become unused to seeing other white people. "God, there are so many laowai here," I marveled yesterday at the Silk Market.'
