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

That is a problem as well. Like I said, anyone is welcome to talk about it. I'm sure there are people here of other races who can relate.

I can see it in some of my foreign friends even though we live in Asia. They think I'm odd because I find Asian (Korean, Chinese, Japanese) guys attractive. Yet, the guys have absolutely no problem dating Chinese girls. I really hate this double standard.

yeah it sucks being a minority...and I think ppl just assuming everyone is chinese is kinda like assuming all white skinned are white and not considering their back ground...or blacks are just from africa...type of thing it sucks though I feel your pain

and I think a lot more ppl in the states are starting to get over their s about asian ppl b/c now a lot of ppl want to be asian lol b/c of anime and stuff, or are just more aware of asian culture, b/c now i've actually heard a lot more ppl ask what race a asian person was, or guessing correctly and the asian person being very happy about it...but I can only speak of pittsburgh really i guess

where i live people are not very racist. but i agree with the whole asians seem to experience more racism that any other minority groups. even though im chinese i think its wrong when people see someone who's asian they just immediately assume that they are from china.
i think theres most insults for asians then any other groups...with the exception of maybe black people. but thats a hazy area i dont want to go into

I think everyone experience some kind of racism or stereotype wherever they go. It's not just Asians, but every other race as well.

The thing is try not to get too caught up on what other people say... and I think it helps when you have a diverse group of friends. Friends from different race: Asians, Hispanics, Blacks, Whites... etc.

yeah.. i agree with kamisama said...
and even Asians don't even know how to differentiate themselves from other Asians.. for example... i'm a filipino i went to vancouver a while ago and while i was walking i saw a man carrying boxes and one of them fell and i picked it up to help the guy.. then he spoke to me in straight chineese.. and he didn't even stopped to ask if i could understand anything of what he was saying... it was like 2 minutes he was talking to me.. by that time i was staring at him and froze thinking of what he was saying and i think he asked me a question (guessing by the tone of his voice) and all i said at that time was.. "umm.. err... welcome..? i think.." then the guy smiled and said "oh.. sorry. and thank you..." then he left..

Nope, Singapore's pretty squeaky clean when it comes to racism. =) However, I'm sometimes discriminated against due to my faith... now that's the problem! But I'm coping.

No, here where I live First Nations/Natives are way hated. And I think Africans suffer a lot more racism than Asians do. The worst I've ever been discriminated against was someone making weird "Chinese" sounds at me and asking whether or not I understood him

To me a racist thing about being asian, is asians themselves. The ones that scream, asian pride, piss me off. Wow... your asian, and your rubbing it in people's faces.. .how nice. You don't even look a bit pathetic every time you scream it. People call me a disgrace to asians, but oh well, never take advice from pathetic people.

^ bad boyz for life baby, Azn_Pride
lol i kid (I only use that term when i joke around not to show off, relax)

neway.
I'm Asian and I can't distinguish between other Asians sometimes ... like when i first met a friend of mine, i thought he was Chinese for about 4 months until he told me he was cambodian... :S
i don't think anyone can tell just by looks where everyone is from.
It's the same for any other... umm.. skin colour =S how do i put it...

neway.,,,,Australia, or Melbourne at the very least is a pretty multi-cultural place , so i guess there isn't as much racism here when compared to other places.

P.S. LOGAIN IS ASIAN
bwahahaha Azn_Pride brudda!!!
