Would be curious if there are any stereotypes, general attitudes towards say Chinese, Japanese, Koreans, Vietnamese, Thai, Cambodians, Indians, Pakistanis, Iranians, Arabs, Burmese, Malaysians, Singaporeans, Taiwanese, Filipinos, Indonesians.etc in your country, good or bad. Which countries do they tend to have an affinity more towards?

In my country Chinese youths are seen as book smart nerds and Filipino youths are seen as Asian versions of Eminem who wish they were Black.

The model minority label does not apply to Filipino youths in America. Plus Filipino youths in America feel more racial kinship with Tongans and Samoans than they do with the Chinese.

Aren't a lot of the wealthy Filipinos part Chinese?

But they don't preform as well in school, probably because their parents don't push them as much as East Asian parents

Han Chinese phenotypes vastly outnumber Malay/Austronesian phenotypes in Silicon Valley tech companies. Filipinos in America are not stereotyped as tech savvy like the Chinese are.

Most Filipino youths in America use the N word a lot. And a lot of them sag their pants.
