I was at first puzzled that at many talks one or two non-Chinese would come up after my presentations to tell me not only that they enjoyed my talks but that they really "related' or identified with my experiences. It turned out that they were not identifying with ethnic Chinese issues, but to the experience of cultural isolation. For example, one African American woman clarified by noting that her family was the sole African American family in her small New England town. Other people found yet other topics that I raised that they felt a connection with. We all share many more concerns than race/ethnicity.
