Japanese

Japanese look down on all Asian: Chinese, Korean, Indian, all other non-white.  They look up to the whites.  
Is it logical?  Why?

I look down upon people who discuss nationality and ethnicity rather than personality. I mean really... do you look down upon anyone because of his or her nationality or admire anyone because of it?

This is a true story:  I met this South Korean Woman few years back.  She was married to a white Aussie.
She admitted to me that she was S. Korean.  However, she would tell people that she was Japanese.  
Why?  She told me that she would be treated better if she was Japanese.  Go figure!  WTF!

Well, that's true, I've ever been to a japanese restaurant, but they were all talking korean. I've asked them, why they don't open a korean restaurant and they've answered that Japan was far more famous.
I would love to have a korean restaurant somewhere around here and so would many others...

Well, my girlfriend is from Hong Kong, and her main issue with the mainland Chinese is that they openly spit and cough...She finds it extremely rude and disgusting.

This is probably one of the reasons that the mainlanders may feel looked down on, but something should really be done about 'social hygiene'. Not coughing in people's faces would probably be a step in the right direction :S

The younger generation of western nations actually look up to Japan more. It's more of a pop culture thing...Anime, Manga etc. They love it (maybe a bit too much at times)

The US has it's pop groups but Japan has a culture to offer, and people like it.

No Western Nation Looks Up At Japan....Most think they are cruel people, who are not as smart as the Chinese.....
Never Let Anyone Outside The Family Know What You're Thinking.
