Them guys from Asia dress like ******s. That's just gross to me. I don't ever hang around them, despite I'm Asian descent too.

I know two branches of an Asian family tree. The immigrants are all "fresh off the boat," so to speak, and they've largely kept their native mannerisms, but the first-generation American-born are all very well assimilated. In fact, they're so assimilated that they all have strong Southern accents. Three of the four have gotten married in the last year and a half, and they're all making good money and living happy lives. I feel useless by comparison, actually. *lol*

Much like Jewish kids from more elite NYC suburbs like Greenwich or Scarsdale (or Manhattan itself) tend to have zero NYC/Northeast accent (and different attire/manner) vs Jewish kids from less well-educated, though affluent, LI/NJ suburbs or outer boroughs of NYC
I whole-heartedly agree with this.
I usually feel like that particular Asian that fits in more with the "white kids from a broken home" than whatever anyone thinks a stereotypical Asian is in line with.
I grew up in a (used to be) rural desert area, never saw my dad, have a white stepdad I so-so get along with, never put much effort as I should have into education, and now I drive a truck and still feel at home in places like AZ, UT, or NV.
However, I've run across a few other Malays like myself, along with other nationalities, and I don't see my case being the same as theirs all too often.

Whichever race are, we are all alike. Well, in some points there, this thread has pointed it clearly out. However, being an Asian FOB or American-born, they share this distinctive personality that makes them stand out from the crowd. I am not very keen with races, as long as you deal with me well, we are good.
