Red, White, & Brue, from Shanghai to America (with Love)
I’d like to think that all these Chinese people are wearing red, white, and blue as a sartorial sign of solidarity, but I doubt that is the reason… But whatever their motivations, these people are rocking the colors of my Motherland and so on the day of her independence I can misconstrue them to represent whatever I wish to think they represent. I mean, my understanding of someone depends on my perception of that individual, and so even though their intent could be “x”, my understanding of them could be “y”. And so even though they probably didn’t wake up and say “Today I want to dress myself up like America”, I’m going to choose to believe that they did. So thanks my Chinese brethren!
