WHAT YOU SAY

[This page is closed to new input. --Ed.]
It seems Indians are more accepting of blacks as partners than other Asians. Didn't they intermix freely in South Africa and the Carribean?

"Please tell me, my Indian friends? Would I be welcomed? If I want to know and go out with an Indian girl, how would you guys take it?"

It really has nothing to do with any of us personally. If you really care for someone then you should not worry so much what everyone else thinks. Personally, I have no problem with interracial. If an Indian wants to date otherwise then it is his/her preference to do. I do not date other than indian, but I feel there is not a problem for someone else's preference.
it is your own choice    Wednesday, December 25, 2002 at 07:58:15 (PST)    [209.214.169.125]
in response to it happens, or whoever that person is
-i have seen a hmong girl do indian dances at a lot of our cultural shows, now i know that there are people who talk, but because she has such talent most people are accepting and dumbfounded. I think when it comes down to it, regardless of race, if you have talent your going to find acceptance.

it happens,

I play the darbuka (Arabic drum). Arab people who have seen me play, like it and wish I play more. I eat at Lebanese restaurants and the Arab people do not give me nasty stares.

If I try to play tabla and eat at Indian tandoori places, would I get the same treatment as I did with Arab hospitality towards Chinese and East Asians?

Please tell me, my Indian friends? Would I feel welcomed? If I want to know and go out with an Indian girl, how would you guys take it?

just asking...

Hello,
I do not visit this site too often. Every once in a blue moon. As an indian woman I was very insulted and angry to see this statement. I have never before wanted to be a white person. You obviously know nothing about us and do not have the right to make assumptions like that. From what I have gathered in reading your previous statements, you need to check yourself. I think you have some sort of conflicting racial issues with wanting to be an arab person.

hey,

"i think the japanese are the asian version of the germans."

I'm neither a fan of the japanese. But comparing someone with germans is really derogatory. japanese are polite and never loud. germans attack everyone wihtout a reason. Even if you rip their tongues out germans remain one of the loudest people.

japanese have copied german stuff, but be glad that japanese won't ever understand what they recite or copy. So I don't understand why some people hate japanese. They're just people who imitate robots.
no offense    Sunday, December 15, 2002 at 23:36:22 (PST)    [62.227.110.106]
coreans, japaneses, chinsese think they are superior to everyone else especially japanese. i know asian culture well. i think the japnaese are the asian version of the germans.

I would also like to add that in my last comment, no insults were intended for the Chinese with intelligence and Brains. My comment was directed soley towards the ignorant chinese man calling himself "It Happens"
Batchu Praveen    Friday, December 13, 2002 at 11:17:45 (PST)    [199.35.35.148]
ahaha, it happens i think its beyond fair to say you got straight up told. You made a stupid comment (it's too false to be called a STATEment)You said indians wanted to be white, and what happened? Two indians quickly and very accurately proved your comment to be idiotic! We both said we never ever wanted to be white, and for once i am whole heartedly agreeing with Batchu because he is right when he says that maybe it is you who wants to be something that you are not (arab persian etc.) i get rather angry when someone mistakes my race, i am indian, i am proud.(period)

"I also hope indian people would someday get over the Aryan fantasy concepts and know that they are and never will be accpeted by those blonde Nordics who laugh at the idea of being cousins to indians" written ignorantly and crudely by It Happens

I never once have wished to be Caucasian ever in my life. It sounds like your fantasy is just that.
"Who laugh at the idea of being cousins to indians"
And that is supposed to be a tragedy? I do not care who laughs at or accepts me. I do not care to be accepted by White and I do not care to be a White man. I never have. I am pleased with my culture, my skin and who I am as human being. Perhaps you should take another look in the mirror and see that you are the one who is unhappy with your Chineseness. You would probably jump at the chance to be White for a day, instead of Chinese. So sad for you. I do not hate you or other Chinese, because I feel sorry for you.

I also hope Chinese people like "It Happens" would someday get over the Aryan fantasy concepts and know that they are and never will be accepted by those blonde Nordics/Persians and Arabs who laugh at the idea of being cousins to the Chinese." I changed the words around because they apply to you. Everyone can clearly see how sickly disturb individual you are. You point the finger as it points directly back to your face again as always. Everyone can see you and you humiliate yourself deeper each way. Everytime you comment you shame yourself deeper and deeper. Have you not learned anything yet?
Wake up It Happens, you are not White, Arab or Persian. Okay? You are Chinese Asian and that is what you will always be. No matter how hard you may try to change that in ways, it will NOT happen. Wake up my poor friend. You are embarrassing yourself and your Chinese parents.

it happens and east AM
it happens you REALLY need to stop with that "indians wanna be white" shiet, cause that by no means is true, i have NO desire NONE!!! to be white, never ever have, never ever known one indian who wanted to be (I, being an indian have been around TONS more than you, so don't go telling me you know some).We have so much to be proud of there is no reason to claim the european culture, it pales in comparison to the indian culture, and that's nothing but the fact, at least in my opinion. I LOVE my culture and my race, wouldn't trade it for the world, and Batchu here is another example of that. Maybe you need to stop projecting stereotypes of your own race onto the indians, cause you're fooling only yourself. east AM...get over yourself!! East asians, are by no means the KING of the asians, please don't look to yourself as something better than the middle easterners. Your last statement was very stupid, period. Grow the hell up.
NdNgurl    Wednesday, December 11, 2002 at 18:32:53 (PST)    [66.229.24.184]
Your kind is not even talked about among Coreans.

Let's break some of the myths that have been thrown around here. Okay as a second generation Asian American with various mixed Asian blood I can already tell you that that's hardly true at all. In fact, many of my fellow Asian brothers live together in harmony. The only people that have problems with other Asian nationalities are people like you.

Discussion comes up only when another illegal Chinese boats tries to enter South Corea

Yes alotta Chinese people try to escape elsewhere in the world? You find that funny when their government has oppressed them to that point? Especially since you claim Korean heritage, you should know how bad Kim Jong is ruining things up in N. Korea. Many Koreans also jump on boats as well. It's not a funny issue.

or when we stroll through Chinatown and shake ours heads in disbelief how dirty it is or how shady Chinese business men are.

China-town is filthy, but so is Koreatown, Little Manila, Little Saigon. Pretty much all Asian ethnic enclaves have their fair share of filth so your point is irrelevant.
