Do you feel like you experience more racism for being Asian?

From my experience, I feel like Asians are the most misunderstood and more likely to be targeted with racism or stereotypes especially in the US. For example: I encountered many situations where someone assumed I was Chinese without even keeping in mind that I am different since I am Korean. Has anyone experienced situations like that? Of course, you don't have to be Asian to share your thoughts.

Sounds like a nice place. I'm getting sick of how I see people act towards me and what I see in the media. So then I'm guessing you are Japanese?

I do, I see lots of racist Idiots in the States. Some people go and say crooked eyes or slant eyes. Its not like anyones eye is perfectly round and if they are they look like freaking OWLS, Pootato Looks Filipino to me.

Hmm. I didn't know that. I am glad that everyone has a lot to say. I felt like I was the only one who felt this way. I was starting to worry if other Asians really even cared.

Yea I remember hearing the same things. Are people trying to say we don't have a right to our own culture just because we are living the states?
