Hot pot discrimination in Taipei

First they came for the youbikers, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a youbiker.

Then they came for the hot pot eaters, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a hot pot eater.

I still have a dream, a dream deeply rooted in the Taiwanese tradition – one day this island nation will rise up and live up to its hot pot eating creed, “We hold these truths to be self evident: that foreigners (and SEA part time workers) are created equal and should have access to pots that are hot.” I have a dream

Not enough proof. Gotta head down to NIA and get your officially stamped entry/exit log.

All jokes aside.

In Taiwan they don’t let us eat. In America we kick their asses and tell them to leave the country even though they were born there…this is mild but I know…for a fact…Asians are in a lot more danger in western counties now than we are here in taiwan.
