This article was about the experiences of Asian American in America, and how they thought about those experiences. The reason for why the author wanted to write this article was he saw another article, which wrote by an Asian American editor of New York Time. That article called “Woman yells at editor, ‘Go back to China’; has this happened to you?”. ( I am strongly recommend you to read this article, Michael Luo said something that most Asian American wants to say.)
For the main part of the article “Readers share stories of racism toward the Asian-American community: ‘People see my race first’”, it raised a topic and ask if any Asian American has the same experience that Michael Luo had. So after the main part of this article, we could see many responses from different Asian American, most of them were sharing their experiences.
Please try to look at those responses if you could, that will give you many ideas.
