ITS TRUE CHINESE HAS A BIG POPULATION BUT NOT ALL PEOPLE KNOW THAT FACT. LITTLE KIDS COME UP TO ME SAYING CHING CHONG. ITS WHAT THE TV PROTRAYS THAT PEOPLE BEGIN TO STEREO TYPE. BUT YOU COULD ALWAYS ASK THEM IF THERE CHINESE, IF THERE HMONG THEY SHOULD BE OFFENDED AND LET YOU KNOW THAT THEY ARE HMONG, BUT NOW AND DAYS PEOPLE ARE TRYING TO LOOK KOREAN CHINESE AND TAIWANESS SO THEY'LL JUST TAKE IT AS A COMPLIMENT.

I don't know whats so wrong with asking,

Everyone does it, even you fob...Hmong people these days just don't want to admit they do it. Asking it out openly solves the matter quick and fast without stirring up too much trouble. Going through unnecessary steps and assumptions will most likely make you look even more stupid than for what you're aiming for. So ask yourself or think about it, "Do I want to look more stupid or do I want my answer?"

But everyone has their way....


yes but sometime hey lie that they are not hmong what do u do then???? lol

Okay 50 cent,

Let me ask you, "What would you do then?" Certain situations can always come up, all I implemented was that to take a common sense direction and not go through hell trying to figure out a person's nationality.

There are possibilities that people will lie, however more than half the time the person would tell the truth if asked in confrontation. After all, like us Hmong people say, why lose face?
