As a young child, Lac Su made a harrowing escape from the Communists in Vietnam. With a price on his father's head, Lac, with his family, was forced to immigrate in 1979 to seedy West Los Angeles where squalid living conditions and a cultural fabric that refused to thread them in effectively squashed their American Dream. Lac's search for love and acceptance amid poverty--not to mention the psychological turmoil created by a harsh and unrelenting father--turned his young life into a comedy of errors and led him to a dangerous gang experience that threatened to tear his life apart.   Heart-wrenching, irreverent, and ultimately uplifting, I Love Yous Are for White People is memoir at its most affecting, depicting the struggles that countless individuals have faced in their quest to belong and that even more have endured in pursuit of a father's fleeting affection.… (mais)

I dont know why I torture myself reading books of abusive parents. It's just so sad and makes me so damned mad.In this book the author manages to rise above his upbringing and come through all the hell he had been through. Message here...never lose hope. ( )

It is amazing that there are refugees who manage to rise above difficulty and tragedy in a country that can be cruel and unforgiving. Lac and his family flee Communist Vietnam and end up in the U.S., in a horrible Los Angeles neighborhood rife with prostitutes, drug dealers and gang violence. While Lac's parents deal with the challenges of language, culture shock and trying to find work while raising their children, Lac and his siblings cope with teasing at school and learning the English language. As Lac grows older, he yearns to escape his family, especially his often brutal father, and finds acceptance and freedom with street gangs. Lac is never completely hard-core; the weight of his father's disapproval keeps him from going over the edge. Still, Lac goes through some hard times before finding his way out. Teens from the 'hood will burn through this book. ( )

“I Love Yous Are For White People” gives a vivid picture of the Asian-American culture in San Gabriel. A heart breaking family tale, but Lac Su rose above the neighborhood he was raised in to make a success of himself. ( )

I think I am getting a bit jaded when it comes to memoirs. This did not grab at my heart strings like it should have and I am sure it is purely because of the writing style, it was quite dry and point of fact. I hate to think that I have become desensitived to all but the most horrific of stories but I believe that it is because the author seemed to be almost a bit removed from the story and so I felt the same.
