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

That could be why you never experienced much racism. Whenever I visit Korea, my friends seem shocked to hear that there is so much racism here. Yea, I like getting to know people who are from different backgrounds and cultures. I think the problem with a lot Asians is their close mindedness when it's comes to that kind of thing. Yea the reality is, as long as humans exist, there will always be racism as well as other forms of suffering like war. We are just naturally sinful.

On another note, my friend was saying he's so sick of racism that he wishes that all forms of races and ethnicities should just disappear so everyone would be the same. I would give anything for racism to end but I feel like differences should be encouraged and enjoyed. Not destroyed.

I think everyone is racist.

To be honest and not to offened anyone it is really hard to tell asians apart unless you pay attention to details. (eyes and shapes of the faces and so on)

Spanish people as well. Can you tell the difference between them unless you really pay attention to details.

My bf is viet by the way. He is very open minded. And awesome.

Yea I understand that it can be hard to tell. That's exactly why I don't approach someone and assume they are whoever without making sure first. It's common courtesy. If you don't know, don't assume.

I live near SF in California, so I don't deal with much racism. My school is a little over 20% Asian. But even when I lived elsewhere (and I've lived EVERYWHERE), I never really had problems with racism, though I get stereotyped a lot. It doesn't really bother me though, cause I pretty much fit the Asian stereotype. The only thing that really annoys me is when people pass of my intelligence for the fact that I'm Asian.
I don't mind people not being able to tell us Asians apart all that much, I can't tell white people apart. And seriously, all the Asian people I know are hell of racist against everyone else, even against each other, so I really couldn't complain.

Hmm. I thought the whole Asian Pride thing died while I was in high school. It's still a problem I see. Maybe it died just in Chicago.

No I don't really experience that because people say asian instead. Hell I'm asian and I can't tell the difference between a Chinese and a Korean. I can barely tell the difference between a cambodian from my own kind.Think about this....Can you tell the difference between a Kenyan and and Ethiopian. Can you tell the difference between an Irish person and a Scottish person. As Chris Rock might say," Y'all look like crackers to me."

I can't believe it. No matter how much you tell them that, they still don't listen? Hearing about this frustrates me since there is nothing I can do about it. Props to you for sticking up for us!!!!

He is the first American comedian I have seen who just doesn't ignorantly assume things about us. I know that comedians make fun of everything and everyone but using stereotypical jokes can have negative influence on people who aren't educated enough first.
