Asian Culture Popularity
Posted 12 February 2006 - 07:12 AM
It's hard to explain how I feel about this issue, but perhaps it's because of my school. A fair percentage of my school (around 20% I think) is Asian. We had an Asian Night in December, but hardly any non-Asians came. And maybe it's because lots of Asians in my school are the ones who cut classes and smoke or whatever, but I think the "middle" Asians (the ones who are not really the "geniuses" of the school [the valedictorian and salutatorian of my school are Asians], but rather the ones who are more... typical?) seem to get a bad rep because of that. It just seems like Asians don't get their dues sometimes. That's my view, anyway.

I started at a new high school this year, and there are about 30 Koreans, and I hang out with them quite a bit. I get made fun, asked to write stuff in Chinese, and laughed at almost everyday. The Koreans think I'm great though. o_O;; They think it's so cool that I have CD's, movies, magazines, etc. in their language. I trade music with them all the time, and I have the opportunity to go to South Korea this summer with one of my best friends. ^^
The.....mean? popular kids, who totally hate me and all the Koreans for no apparent reason, have looked up vulgar Korean words~and they say them......incorrectly and daily like they're American curse words.
I don't think people are purposely biased, or racesist. I think it's society and it's idea that everyone should so radically conform to a certain look or attitude.

Anyway, it's mostly Japan that's popular. Korea is only popular through BoA fans, because I know people who hates Korean culture but loves Japanese culture...

Did you read the rules before posting? Because that has nothing to do with Asian Fanatics and to why the asian culture is getting more popular. And I'm actually offended by that because all races have intelligence. I'm half asian,does that make me only half intelligent? No. Thats just degrading.
Interesting topic, I personally like Asian fanatics, it's cool to have people liking your race. But then again, you don't want people to like you BECAUSE of your race...
So true. Theres alot of people like that...and thats where Asian Fanatics go wrong. The people make the culture,but the culture is what matters when understanding the people.
