Condescending | The arrogance of this White man who gave an unwanted eulogy at a Chinese family's passing of their mother because he thought he had some superior right to lecture grieving Chinese relatives. Before he begins to lecture the unfounded connection between incense and lung cancer in the Asian culture, he should realize that American tobacco companies targeted Asian countries mercilessly and how the coal industry plagued black lungs among American workers. This is a White Savior moment gone horribly wrong. I implore you, if you are ever in a situation like this where some White man begins to lecture you because he feels he's superior than you thus giving him a self-imposed right, shut him down!
