If you’ve been a loyal reader of this column, then you know that it is somewhat controversial. With that, I have a lot of haters, most of whom are unsurprisingly white men.

Here are some of my favorite comments posted on my previous columns:

There’s nothing like waking up to a blue sky and shining sun. Rolling out of bed doesn’t seem quite so hard when you know that waiting for you is the warm embrace of sunshine on your face and the sweet taste of finally-seasonally-appropriate iced coffee. You get dressed, put on a light coat and step outside to meet the beautiful day.

But wait — instead of the warm sun, you are abruptly confronted by an icy wind that stings your skin. It’s almost April. Where is the 60-degree weather? Why is it still freezing out?

I am devoting my first column after Spring Break to a friend-requested topic: Travel etiquette. Many students spent this week-long break from classes traveling — be it on University-affiliated trips like Alternative Spring Break or definitely-not-University-affiliated trips to Cancun or Miami or even just a simple trip home filled with sleep and pets.

With all the money tax-avoidance expert Stephen M. Ross donated, you would think they could furnish the space with something better than inconveniently shaped cheap plastic.

When not fawning over Reggie or tailgating before football games (both of which are overrated), most students spend their time outside of class studying for said classes. Students spend night after night in various study spaces cramming for exams, having mental breakdowns or procrastinating on Facebook.

Now that millennials are killing chain restaurants, a successful business is all about avoiding uniformity, and with that has come a wave of ethnic cuisines mutilated by whitewashed fusion food.

Perhaps we should take notes from other countries and obsess over the true football: soccer.

Lydia's ranking of dogs.

Editor's Note: This column does not reflect the views of The Michigan Daily and recieved strong objections from multiple editors, who were probably offended on behalf of their dogs. 

If there is one thing I stand by in this world, it is this: Not all dogs are cute.

U.S. Rep. John Conyers at a rally for health care in January.

U.S. Rep. John Conyers announced his plans to retire Tuesday morning, an announcement that comes amid a series of sexual harassment allegations. Conyers is the longest currently serving representative; in his more than 50 years in Congress, he been a champion of civil rights.

In his announcement, Conyers endorsed his son John Conyers III to replace him. He described his plans as a retirement rather than resignation, but suggested the effect would be immediate.

When people learn that I am half-Chinese the reaction is like watching someone figure out that math problem they had been stuck on: some mixture of a new revelation and old knowledge that they finally combined. It’s as if my race is some ambiguous thing to be discovered. I’m exotic looking, vaguely ethnic, somehow different — I’m not quite white.

With this, in the years I spent in majority white institutions I got the full spectrum of Asian jokes and stereotypes.
