Yup, I'm half Thai, but Thai wasn't my first language so I have a foreign accent and don't understand everything sometimes, and full Thais tend to turn up their noses sometimes, but it's not something that happens often and it's not full-out descrimination when it does.

agree here, I mean as a teenager, I trying my best to learn other languages because knowing the world today, you will need them and just because we can't read them doesn't mean that we aren't proud of ourselves that we are chinese or other ethic groups

All the time. I'm black irish and chinese but its weird. I seem to notice the most racism amongst the black people in my family. On one side of my family, they say I act too white while the other side doesn't like my mom's side of the family because they are TOO black. I don't really get it and neither do I care to become involved in that nonsense.

First off, all you people here know too many languages! Congratulations!

Back to topic, yeah, I have been discriminated against. Surprise, surprise - I'm actually 100% Japanese and I look it, too; no deformities or anything, BTW. Just a pretty normal Japanese-looking girl: only 156 centimeters, long (like down to my knees) black hair, brown eyes (they're kind of light, but still normal), usual Japanese features. My worst crime is being overweight - not obese, but my mom is horrified because I have prom this year.

The thing is that in Japan, different things are wrong things - the words 'different' and 'wrong' are actually the same word! It's even more so when the threat is an interior one. I mean, they tolerate foreigners as somewhat inferior or vulgar people who don't have the rich cultural background they do, but that's okay because they look so different, who can expect them to fit it? But I look the same as them, so I'm more of a threat. I'm also one of their own, so they think it's okay to look down on me and reprimand me.

This gets me lots of looks when I walk around with my nose buried in a book - an English book. Even more so when I say something in English or talk to myself in English (I have a bad memory so I use verbal repetition to attempt to cememt it in place. I got cursed at several times for being an 'abomination', I think the word was. (At the time I wasn't particuarly fluent in Japanese yet, especially in swearing. I love how the ones who do this are the older, respectable-looking male salarymen; they knock you aside in their supreriority and don't give you a backward glance. (The younger ones are much better; the scary-looking punk rockers or emo-cum-goth ones are much nicer.
