Nope. Mostly Scandanavian ethnically, born & raised in the US.

I remember when I was in both China and Vietnam, I wanted to know the word for 'sorry', but I never did find that out because nobody said anything if they bumped into you on the street or something like that.

Do you just not like Asian people?

For the most part here in the US, you don't see it unless you go to a Chinatown or a Chinese grocery store - I'm sure that the royal tongue-lashing that most people Mainland immigrants would have gotten the first time they did it would have given them PTSD over it in the future, or that they had the sense to look at the situation and figure out that everyone was in line in the first place. When I'm in a Chinese area, it doesn't happen to me much simply because I'm built like a tree and if it does, it's usually some old lady in her 70's who's just "whatever" about it after a whole lifetime of doing it that way. However, I did once grab a dude and give him a good shove because he elbowed my sister pretty hard when we were walking through SF's Chinatown... totally inappropriate and uncalled for, especially since we were walking off the curb and in the street.
It's not only me who had an experience with A Korean. My sister got the same thing and it was also in a club. My mother was also pushed in the grocery. Both me and my sister were stepped on and my Mother pushed and all three of us didn't get any " SORRY " . I don't understand why it was very hard for them to say SORRY ... It's just a 2 syllable simple word .

During the cultural revolution, or even earlier, the communist regime burned those books right?
However, Bettafish gave some good insight into the "peasant" mindset of the PRC. That said, the academics and the intellectuals were persecuted and killed; some of them survived.

I've heard of a PRC group traveling from Aus/NZ to the US, and their unit leader who did not speak English, went into a rampage when requested by a steward to vacate the seat next to the exit door. You and I know of course, that seat is reserved for an English-speaking and able-body passenger so he can assist other passengers during an emergency landing of the aircraft. I can't find the link. Anyway, here is another hilarious one.

A Chinese official has been suspended after he went on the rampage in an airport at being told he could not board his plane.

People can try to excuse thier behavior anyway they want, anyone who spends any time around them knows how they really are. They are not pleasent to be around to put it politely.
Living in Canada, I had be careful with the choice of language. For example, in a situation where a Canadian girl was raped and murdered in LA, even when the suspect is a hotel worker you do not vocalize that the culprit is a hispanic just like all other murderous criminals. You can come to a lot of grieves before you even realize it. Try to phrase your frustration in a more eloquent manner.
