It's Never Ever Boring! Triple Jeopardy from the Korean Side
It ain't easy being bi
Bi spells one helluva bumpy ride whether
Or just plain bi-ethnic, like me
"So you're Chinese and Korean, eh?
Then when your right hand is raised into a fist to strike
Your left hand is holding it back"
Being bi- meant the "On strike! Shut it down!" adrenaline-rush of running for your life from baton-wielding cops while engulfed in long-searing tear gas just because you believed there was more to history than stories of "great white men."
It meant tutoring immigrant kids in Chinatown getting mangled in the public school system. It meant learning construction skills to rebuild the International Hotel and organizing programs for the elderly about to be evicted by "redevelopment" -- now they call it "gentrification" in San Francisco's Manilatown/Chinatown.
No, it's not easy being Bi. But it's never ever boring.
