Dumbass: Are you Japanese?
Normal Person: No...
Dumbass: Are you Korean?
Normal Person: No... where the fuck is this going?
Dumbass: Oh, you just looked Asian, so I thought I'd branch out and learn about your culture.

Normal Person: By that logic, you should be called European American because you look European.
Dumbass: No, I'm American.
Normal Person: Okay, so why the fuck do I need a label as to what KIND of American I am?
