Some stupid kid from Tijuana told me this today, "Asians piss me off. They're always speaking their languages and you can't understand a damn word they're saying!" Then he got mad when I told him that there are some Asians in Latin America who speak perfect Spanish and he got all upset and said, "That's bullshít. Especially because they can't even pronounce words with r's or l's." After that he goes on saying how much Japanese/Chinese/Thai food is awful.
Seriously, what's this kid's problem?
Lol most Latinos I know have some grudge against Asians. If they don't, their parents do.
Asians are probably jerks in Latinoamérica... I can see it. Ppl say that we (chinese especially) suck the life out of a location and never give back. At the same time, you have ppl in China complaining about how Chinese-Americans do so much philanthropy in America but none in China so...
Being from the Philippines I know enough Chinese people who don't give a rat's @$$ about their own country... they'd rather pay more respect to a country that they don't even fu-king live in (China).
I know a lot of ppl who come to Canada with the sole intention of getting benefits and then moving back to wherever they came from. It infuriates me. but I hate THEM, not their culture.
It's either that or they're jealous lol. Asians get rich abroad pretty quickly. But that's only because most come with some money in hand and are ready to make investments in business and such. In Brazil it's a bit different though... I'd say at the turn of the century most Japanese immigrants were in the same fiscal situation as blacks and mixed Brazilians... spending their time in sugar cane fields and stuff but by the 70s I'd say most were well-to-do while the others (blacks especially) were still poor.
I think in around 5 years you'll see anti-Chinese riots in Panamá. The country is like 15% Chinese and if all of them become richer than the local population in that quick a time... yeah, you'll see the same consequences we saw in the Solomon Islands.
