Running alone on Route 66, empty and desolate; crossing some wheat fields, into the setting sun - a scene from Forrest Gump, yet fact has turned into reality.

The Qianjiang Evening News reported a Chinese "Forrest Gump" arrived at the Venice Beach pier in Los Angeles on September 4 this year after he finished his 89-day cross-America-on-foot trip, the first ever by an Asian. Wang Xuan just graduated from the State University of New York this summer.

He started his journey on June 8 in New York and crossed through 13 US states, covering a distance of about 4,800km.

Did it proved that he didn't get raped in the raw by the White Supremacist who are equally as discriminatory towards the yellow man as he is towards the black?  Or, did it prove that he didn't get any eggs thrown at him along the way by the red necks of the Americas who eyes us Chinese with an air of discontentment, of disagreement, of displeasure, and, with the gesture [Darn Chin ks!] hanging like a glowing halo over their heads??? I mean BIG DEAL!!!
