“What did the Asian parents tell their child? ‘You’re an A-sian, not a B-sian‘“

Many Asian students feel pressure from their parents to perform well academically. “You’re an A-sian, not a B-sian” (or “You’re an Asian, not a Bsian") is a saying that has been printed on many images. “I need to get my A’s. I’m an Asian not a Bsian” was posted on Twitter by Jiaklormee on April 19, 2010.

“B-sian” was entered in the Urban Dictionary on July 6, 2010. “Bsian” was entered in the Urban Dictionary on August 5, 2011.

“You got stung by a bee? Why didn’t you get stung by an A?” is another Asian parent joke.

B-sian
An Asian person who didn’t get straight A’s in school and ended up with one or more B’s. Therefore, they are demoted to a B-sian.
Asian1: Dude, I just failed that AP Calc BC test. My grade is gonna drop to a B.
Asian2: Aww, dude. Your parents are going to use your college fund for new laptops if you become a B-sian!

“You’re a piece of garbage.” Can you believe that this is what my mom said to me whenever I messed up a test or forgot to do chores? I’m sure that this happens at least once in a lifetime to almost every Asian kid I know.
