its just that you guys constantly use words like "kawaii" in every sentence, eat with chopsticks like its ur main silverware, etc

but also, it goes the other way too,
in china and other countries, ppl try to use english words, dye their hair blonde, and tries to become westernized

i guess its natural to want to be something you're not


YES THATS WHAT IM TRYING TO SAY

No it doesn't offend me at all

the fact that you are a black guy and from different race doesn't mean that you can't be interested in other cultures or languages

Hahaha, No, I would not feel offended at all if you're interested in Asian entertainment and culture
I'm not like these butthurt children around here that get mad every time they see someone who's not asian into asian stuff.

well think about it this way...u and me are both black and there are many ppl from different races that like hip-hop and(or) try to be "gangsters"...but does that bother u???

to be honest, it doens't bother me, BUT when ppl make horible jokes and try to pretend to act crazy like ppl make us seem it pisses me off. other than that i have no problem with it.

yes there are some limits of how americans are trying to be asain,

I don't really give a damn since i'm neither japanese, korean, or chinese. But what is annoying is weirdos who are way into the culture that they wish to LIVE IN JAPAN just for anime. I mean, come on now, you can just stream that stuff at the comfort of your own home. That's just over obsession...Just don't hope to bag an asian babe. muahaha

They have no right to see themselves as cooler than others because of their race, that qualifies as racism.

Well technically it wouldn't be racism, it would more like supremacy, if its in the extreme case.

Anyway, in my opinion it good to appreciate other cultures as well as you own. As long as its a healthy appreciation, I don't think anyone should make you feel bad for doing so. If we appreciate and understand other people's cultures, I think there won't be as much hate between races. But I do think that people who dislike their own country and culture is quite annoying. If you just look you find uniqueness in you own background as well.

Of course not , silly . If you`re interested in another culture and want to learn its language and such ,
how is it offending ? It`s ... more flattering than offending . Silly child . XD

I heard the universities in Japan are highly ranked in the world. Good luck with that dream. It's one thing to do great in school to make it into a local University, which is hard enough for your typical person, but to get into a university ranked a few below Harvard in another Country? just giving you a heads up. Bettter toss away your social life and pick up on those AP courses.

If people want to be (or act) asian then that's there choice. It's ok seeing people try to embrace another culture....
