South Korea and China currently have a much better relations than China-Taiwan or Korea-Japan and China-Japan. The presidents of both China and S Korea have met recently. Many people in Korea are learning Chinese and many Chinese are learning Korean language. The relationship between China and South Korea have North Korea and Japan as important factors.

I don't think Northern Chinese are well familiar with SE Asians, SE Asia has less influence on other countries than China, Japan and Korea.

East Asians have nasty things to say about each other,yes I agree,but the one that started the whole racist comment was that 北洋艦隊(what kind of username is this?).He said the whole group of people in SE Asia were brown monkeys,so Tdiva felt disturbed and posted something bad about China to REMIND THE GUY what he said was totally uncalled for and tasteless.

Japanese also eat noodles with a lot of noise. Chinese eat noodles with less noise.
Japanese are also loud in some situations.

Chinese may find SEA people gross while eating their meal with their bare hands. I am into this and I enjoy eating my food with my bare hands. I believe, Chinese believes that hands are dirty and must not be used for picking up food.

But me personally, what I find gross about Chinese is their table manners in general. Sorry for the term, but it is comparable to "pig" because of that noise coming out when they eat with their mouth wide open and how they just spit the bones on the table. Not a racist here, infact I love mainland chinese people, they are one of the nicest among other chinese nationalities I've met. But I just can't stand the way they eat, it loses my appetite sorry

As the capital of the Great Mongol Empire, Great Ming and Great Qing. Beijing people have long been known to look down on people from other regions of Asia. I am not suprise with such comments.

He said it in present tense. He specifically used the precise words "As a mainland chinese who grow up in Beijing" to introduce whose view it is, not just his grandfather's view. It is also his own choice to use the offensive words "inferior creature" , which he really didn't have to if he was a little educated.

In his grandparents era, Japanese, Koreans and Taiwanese(both had people in the Japanese Army) are the most hated in China. Whites were mildly hated(Western countries had privileges and many small concessions in China, but become allies of China after Pearl Harbor attack). SE Asians are generally not known to the Chinese in that era except the fact SEA was unfortunately colonised by the Westerners.

This is a sensitive topic.
Vietnam has made headlines in newspapers and tv news all over China this year.
In ordinary days, most Chinese are not aware of Vietnam, because Vietnam is not an important country in the world and back in the Southeast Asia region. Vietnamese culture is mostly not well known in China, Vietnam is not South Korea which is very popular country in China. Singapore has a higher GDP and is more known to the Chinese than Vietnam despite it is very small in area.

That comment about his grandfather viewing SE Asians as 'little dark monkeys' and him saying people where he is from view the SE Asian man as an 'inferior creature' is totally inapproriate and offensive. The OP did not ask for the Chinese view of SE Asia anyway.

Back to topic. I am a Vietnamese living in Norway so I may not speak for all Vietnamese, but I believe our gaze has historically been set towards China (more recently South Korea and to a lesser degree Japan) more than SE Asia. Vietnam was more influenced by Confucianism and Mahayana buddhism than the other SE Asian countries (except for Singapore) We know countries like Thailand and the Philippines are richer but dont consider their culture as superior, as we believe the current economic condition of our country is due to wars and Communist mismanagement.

I havent met that many SE Asians, but I particularly find the Philippinos very friendly

I am a Filipino. As a human being, I want to believe that every race is equal. None is superior among the others. We must understand that we have something in common and something unique to offer to one another. ASEAN nations, I believe are good countries with good people. We are diverse, but we can move as one.

I don't want to judge a race. I can judge a person's individuality though depending on how he/she behaves, including the way he/she treats another.

I suppose most Vietnamese culture is basically Chinese anyway too so there's little of interest for Chinese.
