I’m taking this 3-day quote challenge one step further for this quote. As I’m thinking about quotes that truly mean something to me, I’ve realized that a lot of it has to do with my current environment and feelings. I figured, why not build upon these quotes and tell y’all what they mean to me? So here we go, with quote number 2.
This quote is by Pearl S. Buck, an American missionary who spent almost forty years of her life in China. She later won the Pulitzer Prize and the Nobel Prize for Literature “for her rich and truly epic descriptions of peasant life in China and for her biographical masterpieces.”
Nothing and no one can destroy the Chinese people. They are relentless survivors. Pearl S. Buck
Why this quote, you ask? Well, just last week, Fox News aired a segment of Watters’ World, where host Jesse Watters visits NYC’s Chinatown to ask how they feel about the upcoming election. This was an opportunity for Watters & Fox News to gauge how Asian-Americans view both the Republican nominee and the party itself, but what the segment turned into was a blatantly racist, stereotypical and downright rude and ignorant episode that should never had made its way to TV. Heck, it never should have even happened. (You can watch it right here.)
