Man, this thread just keeps getting thicker (no pun intended).

Omissions : Some Asian immigrant groups have large families in their home countries, that 8 siblings (or more) could be considered a norm.

Omissions : Asians are ripe with racism (not to mention sexism). They look down at whites, as being just above blacks. And most consider their country to be the superior race of Asian.

Omissions : Some Asian groups regarding the Chinese, wrinkle their nose and call them a "dirty" people.

Omissions : Chinese have an enormous presence of illegal alien activity in this country, via organized crime. Or are we excluding the Chinese from being Asians? Model citizens?

Omissions : Ample proof of Asian businesses being income tax invaders. Model citizens?

Omissions : Ample proof of (some) Asian communities (or immigration groups) having a non-integrated approach to living in America, which in fact, makes them nothing more than economic parasites. They're certainly not here to be Americans.

If more Americans knew languages of Asia, they might balk about patronizing Asian restaurants where staff was talking bad about them, and in the background the music was saying, "Remember <<..their country..>> Remember who you are".

Stereotypical Asians?

I could take a "stereotypical" view of Americans too . . because the ignorant don't know how often they are indirectly supporting Communism and Organized Crime via Asian owned businesses, and even if they did know, would they stop? Justifying ignorance to themselves is an acquiesce to it. And there's a pivotal point in ignorance vs. choosing ignorance, that makes all the difference in the world.

So, bottom line is, (and correct me if I'm wrong), you seem to have a few reservations about Asian immigrants, and are generally 'holding back' from giving them your full endorsement. Is that a safe guess on my part?

Your friend is pulling your leg.
I was stationed in Korea Camp Casey few yrs back and there are heavy Asian's however it's rare now that I think of it .
A size 10/12 isn't considered heavy there .

Keep in mind as a whole Korean women are not to curvy and Korean men not exactly broad . Its a different built.

Seoul is very pretty unreal bus service and spotless. Magnificent furniture but not cheap .

I run and I am in good shape for a guy 45 yrsold. Bottom line is they eat much healthier than we do. Fish and chicken are primary meats. Beef and pork considered a treat eaten but once in a while.
Over weight asian immigrants? No I have never met one. My wife is an asian immigrant so I get to meet quite a few. They sort of search each other out.

Yes they eat way better than we do but because it's cheaper .
Fish just caught there is nothing compared to here .
They make less than we do than again maybe not but the food compared to their average income is pennies.
Not meat but fish and chicken.
Korean pears and watermelon are like 8 cents a pound compared to here and the watermelon there is unreal .

The states. They had a bunch of Mexicans working in the back, and the waiters were Korean. They did that whole "cook your food at your table" type of thing.
