The chinese are the most widespread of all the asians. There are Chinese in just about all the asian countries, but no other asian besides the indigenous ones. So only they can get persecuted.

But I hear the Filipino and indonesian servants in the middle east are treated like slaves.

Well Imperial Japan did lots of cruel things to everyone.

And when China was powerful, they used to bully everyone around them too. Every asian state pretty much was a tribute state, and had to obey the orders of the chinese. I think that is how originally all the overseas chinese came to dominate every industry in other countries.

The Japanese and other Asian media, and also Asian-American rights activists and groups, framed it as an example of racist Americans targeting Asians, but it really was more an instance of American castle-doctrine gun culture claiming someone who happened to be Asian. There are countless similar stories of white people suffering the same fate at the hands of a paranoid and trigger-happy gun owner, and it's nOt agood example of Asians being "bullied" in the US.
There was also the case of a white father & son who killed a Chinese American man, thinking him Japanese, in Michigan back when the whole "Japanese are stealing our jobs" sentiment started taking over the US. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Murder_of_Vincent_Chin

That sentiment is pretty much history now. There's really no widespread anti-Asian feelings in the US nowadays, even between Black & Asian people.

What a topic. Why don't you ask if Whites ever get bullied in Asia instead?

There is always a possibility for being bullied for being the minority in many places, directly or indirectly.

....and they also looted Hispanic businesses, beat Reginald Denny etc etc etc.

This happens whenever a country starts land grabbing. Think Germany and Japan 60 years ago
