To Be a Minority and to Be a Geek

To Be a Minority and to Be a Geek is to understand at a young age that people who look like you are rarely ever the hero. To Be a Minority and to Be a Geek is to cringe as your culture is misrepresented in a half hearted attempt to showcase diversity as the voice actors, artists, and writers don’t know your culture.
