Perhaps he's not Chinese, I'm not Chinese, so I wouldn't know,.... but
I am American, have a lot of Asian friends. Chinese and Vietnamese and Chinese Vietnamese.|
Further, I am a guest at some of their houses, and I think his (rogers) sentiment may be somewhat valid as realtes to some Asian men.
As everywhere, easily discerned from the population on this forum, there are ignorant, race obsessed, media manipulated, and essentially deranged individuals living in all corners of the globe.
I think what Roger is speaking to, is the difficulty of a small homogenous, minority group and its members to find its place in society. Immigrant families seek to maintain their heritage, the best of what they have from within, while encouraging their children to pursue matieral success. This isn't dependent upon some racial characteristics. West Indians, South Indians, North Asians, Eastern Europeans are all similar in this respect. What roger is speaking to is resentment, failure to find his place, failure to give himself the acceptance he needed as he is the only person that could do that. Why? The only person because the world is filled with racist jackass*s better ignored. Doesn't matter if they are white, brown, yellow, green, or similar as can be seen on this forum.
I wish Roger would tell the full story. Simply, the genesis point of this, obvously his, pain.
I guess we can all get blinded when the easy thing is to point to the readily available, sparkling, reason for each our own distress.
Usually, this is all we do. Rather than speak to the issue we throw all our wrath against the shiniest object of our imagination.
But is it imagination? People like choices. In an area where one can eat Ethiopean or Malaysian food, Mongolian or Argentinian I am neither surprised nor disappointed to see a Spanish lady with a Black Man, nor a white with an asian. Good food gives health and life and bad food makes you sick. So eat what you like, what makes you strong, happy, prosperous and good.
