My question: Would the nurses give her a hard time because she's mixed, or Chinese? What might she think about them? I have no idea what the interaction would be. This character is third generation American.
Looked up: (google) racial tension chinese vietnamese, racism chinese vietnamese, racial epithets, medical racism chinese vietnamese, chinese vietnamese "medical staff", vietnamese nurses
(wikipedia) racial slurs, vietnamese, chinese american, hapa, american-born chinese
I found the terms "bamboo pole", "banana", "twinkie", but I don't know if these words would come from Vietnamese women or if these are more Chinese on Chinese racist terms. Or if they would defer to her because she's a doctor and not give her trouble at all.
Please don't speculate in your answer. If you don't know, say so. Thanks in advance!
