I'm saying even if there are Asians who hate Asian Americans, there are Americans here who hate foreigners as well, wether they be Asian, European, Mexican, or anything else. Basically, a lot of people hate a lot of things, Asians don't deserve special attention for it.

America is not a valid example because we're a mix of cultures here, and real "Americans" would be Native Americans. American isn't an ethnicity.

Do Asians — in Asia — hate Asian Americans?


As an Eurasian who has lived in both Asia and the West I've seen this "hatred" first hand - but you have to be careful here. There are two sides to this coin. I think a lot of it is generated by real fear, and if you put yourself in the their shoes for a moment you might understand what I'm getting at. Basically to them, you look like them (more or less) but your behaviour, speech and appearance is totally something "foreign" and to some it will come as a shock and this in turn may lead to fear.

You are not what they are "programmed" by their culture to expect - you are something else and a lot of people from a strait-jacketed culture (many Asian cultures) will have a hard time dealing with this.

The otherside of this coin is that you will find Asians who (once they get over the initial shock) will be fascinated by what you have to offer - this is especially true, in my experience, of persons from the opposite gender. So, it does have its advantages also ... ;)

"American" is a universal term for "people of the USA", people living here, disregarding their ethnicity somebody living in the USA is generally referred to as an American. So I can't refer to a major belief of people living in a country because they are not one ethnicity? It's a complete valid example, in my eyes.

It's their choice to hate or to love. For me I couldn't give a damn.

I don't think so. Actually people here in the Philippines love them. I don't know why though.

Well Asians hate everybody, including themselves, so yeah... but seriously, I don't think Asians hate Asian Americans specifically. Some Chinese hating the new US ambassador to China... well NO SHIT, I bet if he were white, they'd still have disparaging things to say about him, same if he were black, hispanic or whatever.

As for the cold shoulder you received when you were in Japan, I wouldn't say they're like that because they hate you. It's actually fairly natural, on one hand you're not immediately recognized as a foreigner, so they have a hard time treating you as such, and on the other hand you're not a native, so they can't treat you as such either. It's not because they dislike you or think you're some sellout to their country, it's simply that they don't know how to interact with you, so they are more hesitant to interact with you.

As for the disdain, it probably is your language skills, anywhere you go to, people aren't going to warm up to you easily unless you can speak their language at least with some degree of fluency. Even in the US, if you can't speak English very well, people are gonna look down on you. Hell, I've heard English from other parts of the country that I have trouble understanding sometimes. Also consider this: even within Japan there are Japanese people who have different cultural norms. For example, people living in Hokkaido are different from people who in Osaka, who are different than those who live in Tokyo, who are different that those who live in Okinawa.

Don't get too self conscious about being "Asian American," if some people don't like it, whatever, screw them.

My people of my ethnicity (Filipino) tend to hate each other. There tends to be little solidarity among them, since there are so many cultural differences. Just go to the next town and bam it's like a different country.

Thais are a catty bunch. They like to avoid conflict, yet gossip incessantly behind each other's backs. It's one of the few things about the Thai half of my cultural roots that I disdain immensely.

-Along with their outdated caste system: Even though my mother married a "farong" and is considered wealthy for it, she is also treated by my half-sister's family's matriarch (the First Wife of her father) as sub-class, because she was once a lowly "Second" wife. Heh, no wonder my mother got out of that arrangement before she met my dad and had me.

Well if you need to know , it's yes. Not all of them do but i've encountered a lot back in asia in Japan , china and korea that are just disgusted with them . There are even asians who hate on other asian countries like the filipinos and how they're pacific islanders not asian type of stuff but I'm not going to lie but I myself have a few problems with them and don't like them as well and try to stay away from certain ones. Asian americans do tend to have a bit of an american sass and attitude even stereotype to get attenion and that's why we asians in asia feel uncomfortable around you. I'm not someone who hates asian americans or other asian countries because I mean I'm Chinese filipino korean blood and I love my fellow asians but a lot are rude and impolite. I grew up with a family which doesn't like asian americans and filipinos at all and always yells at me or even hits me if I even talk to them as well as speak english or any filipino language. We all have our differences but we are all the same and we come from the same ancestors. Yes , we do and it is how it is.

I may be adapted to the American culture, but that doesn't mean that I have abandoned my people.
