it reads like it was written like a black person but i get the gist especially since there are some people who only believe a thing when it said by a non-black.

Next, I think the author is getting Asian culture and values mixed up with IMMIGRANT ones.  The author doesn't know the first thing about Asian people to be grouping them all in the same category together like this.  Mr. Chang doesn't care about Mr. Yamasaki.  Mr. Yamasaki doesn't care about Mr. Choi.  Mr. Choi doesn't care about Mr. Luza.  Mr. Luza doesn't care about Mr. Nguyen.

As someone who is immersed in two Asian cultures on a daily basis, I can say that unless you are a minority, you generally aren't going to care about others of the same ethnicity.  You are going to fail as much as anyone else because there is really not a lot at stake like there is if you pick up and move to the US.  

We don't have to perpetuate stereotypes in order to wake ourselves up.  Just research black communities that are thriving.



My favorite poster killer it. And living in Japan for 2 years show this and they don't like Koreans as much and don't care for Chinese nor Filipinos. Crazy.

if we can rally together in peace when injustice has been done to us,then we should be able to rally together in owning our own businesses in our neighborhoods..employing our own people, etc...

On a different note, OP IS over-generalizing a bit. And on another note, in the American society, the white powers that be don't deliberately have it out for Asians, but they do for the black man. With that aside, when blacks do manage to come up and establish businesses, we should definitely foster the mindset of the Asians as described in the OP.

If you want to boycott Asians then you should probably boycott the white man first.

I support black owned businesses but I'm realistic.
But seriously, I've been in a position to hire, all at all times, it may be subconsciously, I've hired msostly blacks (although it's been mostly black applying). I do make an effort to patronize black businesses. From my experience, the mindset of blacks in a mostly white area is significantly different from those in majority black cities. Blacks in white areas tend to back stab and put down other blacks trying to come up. Quick to run to massa and prove he aint like the others. The low self-esteem is overwhelming. 
True or not, the statement in OP is a REAL lesson to be taught and learned.

I disagree with the thought in the OP that Black people don't try to help one another out.
There was a study that came out (idk how accurate it is) that states that Black people give back more of their income to the community than Whites to charitable causes. And that our donations are mostly for other Black people. African americans are labeled more of a commutative society as compared to a individualist one. So, they are pushed to helping other more from my experienced. I can think of many many many examples from my personal life.


You've helped me out personally quite a few times Concrete Rose Approve
