You need to check with the government to see whether your pious belief mirrors government policies ...

Yes, I have read these. Can you read Chinese?

I beg to differ, Sir/Maam! Whilst partially true that folks of low economic status suffers most racism alongside those with poor English, I will ignore this risible acculturation you seem to fixate on! I have it on good authority from my top notch Asians friends (girls) that they have been approached in bars with 'how much'! Right there is a idiotic example of a racist mind.....can't even tell a hooker from office worker out to have a wee dram after work.

Ophrah Winfrey was followed about in a designer shop in Paris and finally a top notch casino instructed door staff to dress down as they were intimidating Chinese high rollers who presumably dressed like peasants even though they were dropping £millions nightly! The fact they were told to dress down is an insult to the insecure and probably peasant high rollers!

A racists will be a racist no matter what as the fact that you look different is enough to single you out! Why are we even talking about this as China, Japan and Korea harbours some of the worst racists ever
No, I live above Sunset Plaza, it's a little house I rent and it's a little rundown but has a beautiful view, what about you?

Racism exists mainly among the upper classes. as anyone can see in the occupy wall street protests a ...

....the "upper classes" and also the lower uneducated classes as well who need someone to blame for their poor lot in life.....immigrants are convenient I guess. I do feel sorry for them, that's for sure!

I think acculturation reduces the likelihood of experiencing racism, though it is just an impression. Sure, if you go to a bad suburb and walk around at night, acculturation won't protect you. And at a bar, you meet drunk people...what a surprise!)

I think if you are amongst educated, middle class and cosmopolitan people you will be less likely to experience racism than if amongst poor, uneducated and untravelled people

Similarly, if you speak the same accent and behave similarly, you are more likely to be accepted as "the same". This is certainly the case in my experience. In fact, before I came to this website several years ago, I rarely gave it a second thought.

when I say acculturation - to an extent I mean the adoption of the local custom and lingo

however, this is just a partial substitute for being born in a place.

In Oz, the number of first or second generation migrants is just huge. This is a defining aspect of the culture of the last three to four generations.

inn fact, regarding acculturation, most recent places I have worked in have people from all over the world (but especially Asia) and there is certainly no favouritism based on skin colour.

at least, this is my experience in Oz. And I think most of the elements of racism are experienced by anyone who is "different" in some way to this poor, uneducated and untravelled group. Even where both have the same skin colour.
