Re: “Young, Asian American, and Christian

Evangelicals were really popular in the 1950's with Asians at Berkeley (my parents generation). I always thought it was because the Civil Rights Era hadn't happened yet so there was no vocabulary developed for Asians to fit in. That's why they all became engineers or science majors. But obviously the Civil Rights Era missed something because these folks need Christianity as a framework for having a social life. The problem might be the highschools just aren't preparing them adequately, with all the emphasis on grades and testing. More emphasis should be placed on critical thinking, community service, humanities at the highschool level. Hopefully with time there will be more people of color in the public schools that will make education more relevant. Personally when I was in highschool I was a science nerd bercause I didn't relate to this white people's history and white people's literature being passed off as "classics" but that was 25 years ago.

Re: “¡Ask a Mexican!

Hi, This is a comment about last week's letter where the guy wanted to know why Mexican's put their feet on the wall. This is my theory: because all Mexicans have beer bellies and then wear stcked heels, putting the feet on the wall tilts the pelvis inward and relieves pressure on the lower back. Dancing like that surely makes their backs hurt, at least get tired.
