You might find this Codeswitch podcast interesting.

http://www.npr.org/sections/codeswitch/2016/07/27/487375314/a-letter-from-young-asian-americans-to-their-families-about-black-lives-matter

And there is one particular part of it that seems to tie in here, at least with regard to Asian-Americans and Asian immigrants to America. Here's a snippet from the transcript:


It's the system in this country, the system in America which puts black people at the bottom and has since the beginning, forcing other people of color, like Asians, to separate themselves in order to get ahead. It's something, she says, that's been happening since the 1850s, when Chinese immigrants were coming to the U.S. as laborers.

KIM: So right from the very beginning, the Chinese elites in San Francisco, the leaders of the Chinese community there, were saying to U.S. government, we are foreigners, not slaves. We are not black. Do not treat us or imagine us as blacks.


So that suggests to some extent that while both the stereotype lists you provide are stereotypes and certainly not reflective of entire truths, there's also something sometimes going on with folks deliberately trying to establish themselves as being different from a group that's being oppressed, in order to not suffer by association basically.

I suggest listening to the whole podcast episode, or at least just reading the whole transcript. That snippet is absolutely not the whole of the discussion and other perspectives are also shared.

But most of these stereotypes are just racist bullshit white people made up.

Dumb as hell. I know black folk who even stereotype amongst themselves, so don't bring up this "oh, white people are the cause of most black stereotypes" bullshit.

I didn't. I'm just saying the two lists in the OP are racist bullshit made up by white people, so it doesn't mean anything. At most it means racist white people have made up that black and Asian people are opposites, but racist white people have also made up that Asian pussy is horizontal and that does not actually mean anything either.

I am quite certain that non-white people are making up other racist bullshit, which also doesn't mean anything. They don't get a free pass to make shit up just because they're not white.

But I didn't think I needed to say that, because I forgot how many FUCKING RETARDED PEOPLE are on these forums.

I remember hearing this podcast on the radio a while ago and it got me thinking about racism. Its actually really interesting how Asians try to stand out. Like their whole work ethic is to be admired. I remember hearing (possibly from this very podcast (too lazy to click link)) that on an IQ test a white person could get a 100 and an Asian could get an 80 but Asians work so hard that they stand on equal footing with that 100 IQ person.

But I'm a "rich white boy" anyway so i'll ride that train to my benefit as long as I can.
