it seems to me that Asians are taking over the world.



i noticed it in college first. the oriental-looking people are all over the campus. when the student lounge is not filled with the weird jabbering of the Indians, you can see them draped over the chairs and surfing the web. when you have a problem printing in the computer lab, you have to ask one of the kind black-haired girls sitting at the front desk. there are signs in the staff lounge announcing that if you want a vcr brought into your classroom you have to check the list to see who is on call for that day. all five guys are Oriental. in class, every other name seems to be Ku Ying Ah So or Navnit Shing Yu. my sister had an Oriental guy in her class with such a complicated name, that the professor used to spell out the name and not bother to try prounnouncing it between the weird jewish, oriental, black, and indian names, (Yitty, Kimyangsu, Faquicia, Savreit), the american professors are so grateful for a simple Justin, or Amanda, when they call the roll.

about fifty years ago, the kids that graduated at the top of their classes had names like Michael Schwartz, Theodore Cohen, and Howard Katz. Now it's all the Aisians. they fill the hallowed walls of the universities with their soft jabbering, shooting past all the Jewish doctors, leaving the lazy Americans far behind in the dust...

...and every street corner has a cleaners or a fruit/vegatable store owned by these hardworking non-americans, who work from early morning till late at night, trying to make it in the land of the free.

yea, its true.

Plus they have every kinda business. The cleaners, Chinese restaurant, construction, doctors, math, actors, nail saloons...

But I still can't get over how English they sound. You hear someone speaking regular English, turn around and see its a Chinese person.

My apologies in advance for the upcoming critique:

I write in reference to your phraseology of "hardworking *non-americans.*" Many of these people are just as American as you (not all, but very many). The fact that they look different due to their place of origin does not alter their citizenship status. If you want to call someone "Asian" because it's more efficient than saying "an individual, possibly of Asian descent," that's one thing. But to call them "non-americans"...

Just remember, there are people who would say the same thing about Jews. The fact that your grandparents may have been immigrants does not prevent you from being a full-fledged American, regardless of your cultural affiliation.

Next time, you might try "non-white," "non-caucasian," or "minority." These terms are fairly PC... for now.
