That's how I feel. That's why I neglected to comment cause honestly if the tables were turned they would be throwing us under the bus along with whites. On facebook the first person I saw to post about this was black. Then a few indians but many blacks commented on this issue. When it was an issue concerning blacks, Asians could care less.

Honestly, I was shocked that she was the first Indian American to win more than anything. That's the problem with other minorities they learn to accept their position without questioning it and put blacks down as if there is a totem pole.

Reminds me of the Black Entrepreneurs documentary CNN had. CNN had the nerve to have an Indian man talk to them. White people are clueless about race relations so I think they thought the Indian guy would inspire blacks. 

Instead, this Indian fool told a group of black people that they need a white man to be the face of their products. All the blacks looked at each other like is this man for real saying this on TV? It was astounding that an Indian man on a show about Black Entrepreneurs in Silicon Valley would tell black business people (some of them were successful prior to coming on the show) that the first thing they needed to do is get a white man. 

He was completely serious and said it as an accepted fact. After that, he was quickly, yet politely, escorted off the show, but ridiculous.

Why Are Asians So Racist?

August 19, 2013 1:31 pm

ProtestSigns

I get asked that question and various riffs on it like “why do Asians hate black people?” and “why do Asians only stick with other Asians?” all the time.  While these questions may seem rude, I take them seriously, not least because they contain seeds of truth, even if they’re ultimately based on misinformation.

Before I get into what I meant by that, let’s get real about racism. Racism is distinct from ordinary bias because it was created as the justification for and original blueprint of a society in which race and class were pretty much the same thing. Class is how wealth and therefore power is organized. So, race and power are also inextricable. And while parts of the original blueprint have changed over time, we built real structures, like our electoral college, ghettos, and suburbs, just to name a few, that continue to dictate the way we live.

So, the long history of white supremacy, manifest as it is in the institutions and design of this society, creates a situation in which white racists are no more morally more bankrupt than any other brand of racist, but they are more effective. Even if you perceive Asians to be “so” racist, we not more racist if you measure racism in terms of broad impact.

But there’s more. Asian immigrants almost never arrive here with an understanding of “Asian” as a race nor of the racial attitudes that prevail in the U.S. They have to be taught. New arrivals are inundated with racist messages as they grapple with what it means to be “American,” often without the benefit of actually knowing members of the racial groups that are being defamed, and without access to contrary sources of information in languages we speak. Imagine what it would be like to be a Vietnamese immigrant landing in Brownsville, New York’s blackest neighborhood, where 93% of residents have been stopped and frisked by police.

Newly arrived immigrants assimilate a culture in which it is business as usual for American authority figures to arbitrarily pick out black people and treat them like criminals. It’s not that hard to see why many reach the conclusion that black people are prone to criminality, a racist impression that will be reinforced by TV, conservative politicians, movies, and popular music. But we all consume these same messages. So are Asians more racist? I doubt it. Instead, I argue we are less subtle because we often don’t understand the accepted racial etiquette. And keep in mind, that etiquette tends to make racism more rather than less difficult to combat by forcing it underground.

The process of assimilation tends to twist many American national characteristics into caricature as immigrants for whom these characteristics are exotic attempt to distill and adopt them. This makes these characteristics, like racist beliefs, especially apparent.

But while Asians are certainly guilty of racism, we are also among its victims. That might be why 76% of Asian Americans polled by the National Asian American Survey support affirmative action against 14% who are opposed. Asian Americans also tend to favor humane immigration reform and Obamacare. These are all racially charged issues, especially in how they are treated by national political campaigns. Yet, Asian American opinion on these same issues seems unaffected by negative racial stereotyping.

And this thing about Asians only liking other Asians? Well, that’s sort of true, though I’m not sure “like” is the right word. Identify might be a better one. The peculiar way that Asians are treated results in a shared experience that most folks can’t relate to unless they’re Asian. So, many Asians do tend to identify very strongly with other Asians, especially those that belong to their particular ethnic heritage groups.

But, Asians aren’t more cliquish than other groups. In fact, whites are the most racially exclusive. 40% of whites, according to a recent Reuters commissioned study, don’t have friends of other races. Given the incredibly large number of whites relative to other groups, that’s a tough claim. It means that more whites don’t have friends of other races than the total number of people of color in the U.S. excluding Latinos. And this isn’t just indicative of how whites live, it’s also indicative of how whites think. If you don’t believe that, I present all six seasons of Sex and the City, ten more of Friends, and a whole pile of episodes of Girls as evidence.

Puhleeeze! All these other races look down on us because they look to get "brownie points" from white people. I had an Asian cab driver throw my change at me & say "black people never tip". First of all you were rude, second you stopped at the gas station before dropping me off, then you had the audacity to ask me "how much change you want back?" Um... ALL OF IT! I had a tip for him all right..
