Stop using Asians as role models

CNN - Sun, 05/24/2015 - 19:16
When I was growing up, one of the things that always made me crazy was my parents' habit of constantly praising other kids in my presence: "Oh, remember Olivia Chang?

And he's only 14!" These exclamations would invariably be followed by silence and an evaluating look at me, intended to communicate my utter inability to match the performance of these other children.

A general's apology to dead soldiers

CNN - Sun, 05/24/2015 - 16:41
Memorial Day 1945 was a somber time for most Americans, and 70 years later it still carries with it a special poignancy. President Franklin D. Roosevelt had been dead just over a month, and while the war in Europe had concluded, it was too early to begin celebrating victory over the Axis powers. The fighting in the Pacific, where the battle for Okinawa had begun in April and would last through most of June, was still taking a heavy toll.
