* TheWhitestBlackGuy: Tom (a Chinese American from Brooklyn) moves in with some relatives from San Francisco's Chinatown. He's distressed to realize how little of the culture he understands--he doesn't even recognize which language his relatives are speaking (it's Hokkien). He is, unfortunately, too Chinese to fit in back in Brooklyn, yet too white to fit in here in Chinatown. "I'm such a [[OutsideInsideSlur twinkie]]!" Fortunately, his relatives are happy to teach him how to fit in.

''Double Happiness'' is a comic book (later published on the Web) by JasonShiga.

Upon coming to San Francisco, Tom meets up with his cousin, Jackson, who offers to let Tom stay at his place in Chinatown. Tom's initial excitement turns to frustration when he realizes that he doesn't fit in with his Chinese-American relatives any better than he did with the whites back in Boston. In response, Parker and his friends take it upon themselves to teach Tom the language and the finer points of Chinatown culture.

Life is looking pretty good... and then everything comes crashing down, ''hard''. Tom ends up with a crowbar in his hand and a choice to make.
