We must let go of our old culture. We are American now.

–Lin

Lin is a character in 80 Days, a Chinese-American who believes in leaving behind his old culture to become purely American.

Background[edit | edit source]

Character[edit | edit source]

Lin is self-assured and satisfied with his life, but also close-minded in not considering that people might want to cling to old cultural traditions.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
