Hi Sean,

Thanks for taking the time to leave such a very detailed comment and taking such interest in my life.

Yes, my surname is Vietnamese. It is rather confusing for people who don't know me but my grandparents immigrated from China to Vietnam and took the Vuong last name. I was raised with Chinese traditions and can assure you, I'm no dummy when it comes to Chinese traditions. My husband, on the other hand, is Vietnamese. So I guess I can be considered "woke" to the differences between Chinese and Vietnamese cultures. You are right in that they are not homogenous in any way.

Thank you for your very well thought out opinion as a white person (based on your last name). I found the level of hypocrisy fairly amusing.
