The riots of LA were about Chinese? umm... I'm speechless (and that doesn't happen too often) Last time I checked, the riots were about Rodney King and Reginald Denny and black/white race issues, not about Chinese, and if you were discussing the Asian shopkeepers that were defending their shops during the riots, they were Korean. Perhaps you're talking about the riots in Indonesia? BTW, ernest, thanks for speaking for 290 million Americans by saying you would rather not see Chinese around... obviously, for the most part that isn't the sentiment that's felt here. I'm still quite amused by the statement considering the fact that you're not from the US. If you were, and you'd made a statement like "me and all of my friends would rather not be around Chinese" it would be rather racist, and you still wouldn't be speaking for the entire country, but at least it would make a valid point that SOME Americans didn't want to be around Chinese. Being both from the US and Chinese, I don't get that feeling at all, of course there are always some people who don't like people of races that aren't their own, but these people are present in all races and countries. From everything I've heard, racism is a larger problem in France and other places in Europe than it is in the US, certainly their countries are more heavily Caucasian than ours.
