Asian teenager picks fight with Asian for entertainment of white friends

When I was passing by a game arcade, I was accosted by a group of kids. One of them yelled, "Are you a girl? Do you want to fight?" Was it coincidence or what, it was the only Asian kid in a gang of white kids who was trying to pick on me. The other kids were just going along with him. He was the only one pushing the whole thing.

This sort of incident isn't unique. Often, a minority kid trying to fit in with a white group of friends, would act extra hostile towards people from his own ethnic group in order to distance himself from other minorities and ingratiate himself with whites. But the irony is, their white friends may not always feel the same hostility towards minorities or like to see that kind of behavior.
