Asian last names are pretty common, which inevitably leads some to speculate whether all Asian people with the same last name are related.
Four Asian girls pulled a yearbook stunt to send a message to their white classmates to answer that question once and for all. The four high school students have the same Vietnamese last name, “Nguyen,” and had it to the last straw with answering the same question over and over.
Each of their yearbook quotes spelled out a word in their four letter message that read in all caps:
“WE ARE NOT RELATED.”
The photo caught the attention of users on Reddit when it was uploaded on Wednesday. Apparently, people haven’t caught on as a similar stunt was done in 2012 when eight students at San Jose’s Presentation High School wrote in their yearbook quote:
“We know what you’re thinking, and no, we’re not related!”
The girls, also Nguyens, coordinated their yearbook quotes to send a message to the rest of their high school.
