This is one of the most bizarrely... well, dumb things I've ever read on CD, to be honest. Why do I feel like a jerk for saying that?

Well, in any case... the average income for a Korean-born Korean American is $62k USD/year; the average income for an American-born Korean American is $71k per year.

The average income for a white American is $55k. So, a foreign-born Korean immigrant living in the US is statistically likely to earn $7k/year more than a white American who was born and raised there.

The average Mexican-American earns $40k per year, and the average US-born African-American earns just shy of $39k/year... 23k less than a Korean immigrant.

I was able to find two instances of Korean Americans being killed by police in the US; I can name two black guys, two white guys, and two latino guys killed in the last month by American police.

I used to live in LA's Koreatown, and the number of Lexuses, BMW's, Porsches, MBZ's, etc and the presence of Korean-speaking staff at many dealers; the number of plastic surgery clinics to specifically cater to Korean clientele; the number of upscale Korean shopping centers and markets; the prevalence of home ownership versus tenancy in the area... these all would indicate that Koreans are doing A-OK in the US. I used to work for a wealthy Korean-American woman who owned hotels, restaurants, stakes in wineries, and lived in Beverly Hills.

Lots of middle-aged Koreans own their own businesses - hell, in LA and SF, a few times I walked into a Mexican restaurant and saw that the place was owned by a Korean. Lots of Korean landlords. Korean-Americans earn college degrees at a much higher than average rate, so tons of younger Korean-Americans can be found in any one of a number of business, tech, legal, and medical professions earning plenty of cash.

I am pretty sure Koreans are one of the most successful immigration society in the US. In every immigration community, you have successful people and less successful people, but it's the same pattern for all.

Most Asian communities have succeeded, this needs to be acknowledged. Koreans are part of those Asian communities. So unless you have tangible numbers, Koreans are still one of the most successful immigrants in the US.

I am pretty sure some Japanese think the same way, they just need to replace it by Japan, China/Korea and maybe keep the US for some boxes. And it doesn't need to happen before 1945 too.

Hopefully, this is not the majority.

Come to where I live. You will see many, many successful, affluent Koreans. And personally, I find the ones I know to be very likable.

Stupid post.

The minority of Americans who are predjudiced would be prejudiced against Asians in general, theyd make no distinction between Koreans, Chinese, Vietnamese etc.

So you know some Japanese like that, don't you? I don't know one.

The flowchart was made by a Canadian who married to a Korean, BTW.

The OP makes preposterous, unsupported claims about Korean-Americans (most discriminated, most hated, highest unemployment rates.) Then you follow that up with an even more absurd argument that Koreans are blaming the US for something that isn't true and which no Korean believes. This is like one idiot saying the Japanese carry the most diseases; then another idiot stating that Japan blames the US for it. Your arguments make no freaking sense on any level. Are both of you actually that stupid and delusional?

I have seen you in other threads starting arguments, trolling and spouting more ridiculous nonsense. Just wow.

Off Topic. This is the Asia forum, not Asian forum.
