And it is black people who are the rudest to him. And they will be crying "racist" at the first opportunity someone says something about them.
It is not that he is not respected that is the saddest here. It is the fact that he is not seen as an American by almost all of them.
This it probably #2 reason to self-internationalize rather than trying to make America one's home. The country is obviously not civilized yet. It has all the signs of being the land of ignoramuses.
When it is Serbian guys playing, I don't think there is anything even remotely like it.
A brain is a terrible thing to wash!
What do you mean by self internationalization? Personally, I'm loyal to certain ideals that America had at its founding, but I don't think really exist anymore. So I'd be loyal to those ideals I have in whatever culture I can find them.
With sites like facebook you are talking about the worst people out there but yeah I hear you. Asian men are disrespected in a lot of ways, there's no doubt about that. Whites get the same treatment from blacks (White men can't Jump, small dick, wimpy, etc.) and the media but I think Asian men have it worst as far as negative stereotyping. Most of these people are young and it kind of surprises me given how PC things usually are.
Some other minorities hate Asians for the same reason they hate intelligent white people, even white people hate intelligent white people.
If you're going to stay here you should find a group you can trust who have some awareness. Maybe you should go oversees if you are more comfortable there, this just happens to be my place of birth and where my heritage is. I don't go to Asia for the same reasons you want to leave here, I could end up being the fall guy for all this.
I'm not concerned too much about the hordes, I have more than enough tools to deal with them. More of the military response that accompanies a loss of order. Internment does concern me as well, look at Katrina and Sandy, they have lots of FEMA camps now. That's where they'll put people in the cities who can't feed themselves, bad place to be even if it's "for your own good".
I wouldn't fight for the government either, I'll fight for me and mine and that's it.
I am referring to a PT lifestyle.
Self-internationalization or self-multinationalization goes something like this:
Passport and citizenship - in a country that does not tax money earned outside the country or control actions.
Legal residence - in a tax haven.
Business base - where you earn your money, ideally somewhere with low corporate tax rates.
Asset haven - where you keep your money, ideally somewhere with low taxation of savings interest and capital gains.
Playgrounds - where you spend your money, ideally somewhere with low consumption tax and VAT.

Well, the thing though is that it was twitter and these are just everyday kids in high school or people in college.... I went to a college full of people like this for a semester and just got my ass out of there, also because of my breathing issues that I have to get surgery for.
As much as I really f***ing hate America sometimes, most of the people around here (Pacific Northwest, Western Washington State) have been ok to me. I've gotten racial taunts and stuff even from some of the most liberal people here, but it seems that at least some of these people do view me as American. But the problem is that there are too few of them. I'd be willing to fight for Western Washington/Cascadia becasue of the good people I've met here.. there are just so damn few. Also, lots of incursions from the deep south, bringing KKK skinheads to Washington, especially around the Tacoma area.
You say that I should find a group with some awareness, but what I have found after interacting with a large number of people over the years is that liberals and conservatives alike dislike Asians. Sure, there are some otakus/anime lovers, but those people are also outcasts themselves. The only people who hang around Asians are the 1/10,000 people who are open minded, or they are other Asian American males.... Even Asian American females would backstab us in a heartbeat. I would not trust my life to a group of Asian American females either. The only ones I can trust are the whites like ladisdlav who actually GET IT that being Asian American, I can't really go back to Asia because of language issues and also the fact that my beliefs are already pretty much "American," or Asian American males.
But the problem is that whites who get what it is like to be Asian American are rare as f**k and I wouldn't put it past the extremely conservative types to go ahead and shoot those whites as well because many whites view the more open-minded whites who want peace/harmony as traitors. And many Asian American guys are just wimps and don't have many resources. Even worse, most of the liberals who would be willing to shield an Asian American are anti-guns, so they would be defenseless.
God I hope Western Washington decides to secede and comes under the protection of the Canadians.
That's why, like you said, I should think about leaving, and I think I'm going to be applying to University of British Columbia or Simon Fraser University. Being on the Canadian side, should shit hit the fan, would give me some more time to prepare/run for it.
And I think I'm going to learn how to hunt, get registered, buy a gun, practice at the gun range.... just hope that there aren't KKK types there who will shoot me or don't want to let me use the gunrange/gun training courses. That, in addition to brushing up on my martial arts and muay thai and Kyokushin, and also practicing shooting my bow and arrows.
And then maybe look at survival forums for how to survive in the Canadian wilderness.
I just hope that should things not work out, they give me the option to still serve the miiltary like the 442nd Japanese Americans did and not end up being sent to internment. But with the sentiment of wanting to kill and exterminate Asians, I doubt they will be internment camps, but instead nazi style concentration camps/death camps. So getting out of here is still the better option.
Like this guy:
Not "go back". Why go " back?" Are you from there originally? Just "go" without the "back". Most of your issues in Asia would be of legal nature- you are not a citizen although you may try and apply for a Nikkei visa in Japan- they give visas to people like you, etc. Please check that out.
Languages can be learned and traditions can be studied by buying a simple Culture Shock series book on Amazon.com
Beliefs etc. can be diversified and enriched by adding more and more new customs and traditions to them as you travel and live in all these countries.
Based on all your descriptions of your environment one can conclude the following
1) ( At least as far as the society's attitude to Asian males is concerned) the US society is ignorant, bigoted provincial and just stuck in the dark ages. It is not good. You should not try and adjust to it.
2) You should not try to built your identity based on how the US society defines and identifies you. Also, you should not become a Malcolm X. If you really wanted to, you can do it from overseas. Becoming a martyr fighting against a dumbed down society is not a good path.
3) You need to go through the process of self-multinalization. Meaning- you keep the US passport and get a US degree, you have a portable profession and you physically spend your time in kind, friendly countries with intelligent people who appreciate you and whose women adore you. I can think of say, Brazil, Panama or Mexico on the outset, and even the Philippines and Thailand ( does not fulfill on all counts), as well. This is the same path that I went through and it works very well.
Trust me, you will not be able to change the American ( or any other country's) ingrained prejudices- so better add other countries to America. Also, people like yourself are often engaged in professions that bridge civilizations- say, translators, international businessmen, international teachers, etc.
Let me give you this example:
I was in the Philippines recently and the US passport allowed me a very easy entry and temporary visas which could be extended indefinitely. Then I got a job online teaching Russians and doing Russian translations and interpretations. So, I lived as an American there with Russian rubles coming in through Paypal while enjoying the weather, the food ( well....) and the company of the beautiful women of the Philippines. I was also able to accumulate money by working in Saudi and Oman ( I was hired into those countries because of Middle Eastern experience and because I speak conversational Arabic pretty well ) as an American and then spending time in Japan- where I spoke Japanese to them, the Philippines again and other countries- enjoying Buenos Aires in Spanish, things like that.
So, you quilt your world milking every country for what it can give you and not milking it for what it cannot give you. You cannot get milk from a goat, you see. No matter how much you jack him off. And that is what many people's mistake is.
So, you learn not to buck the system, but to use it and get around things that are unpleasant and use your disadvantages in such as way as to make them your advantages. That is an art and you need to figure out how to do that.
Also, while the ignorant redneck Americans do not see you as American and give you an identity crisis, foreign governments do not have that problem. You are an American as far as their visa authorities are concerned and whatever perks you can get from various international treaties, you can get them.
So, advice from a 52 year old expat to a 21 year old-
Please read a book called PT - Perpetual Traveler ( it is on Amazon) and also devote less time to martyrdom and the "fight" against the redneck. You are fighting the Anglo tribal instinct. It goes back millennia. You will not win. You may soften it a bit after 50 years of rallying but is that what you want devote your life to? Would not you rather learn Portuguese and spend time on the Copacabana beach sipping rum and then walking in the sand with a swarthy Latina maiden?
Or would you rather be posting here about your "Mein Kampf"?
If you were in Brazil, you would be as Brazilian as anyone else, with a bunch of relaxed friends and several pretty girls calling you every day. The angry speeches would be a thing of the past. You need to experience it to believe it.
Yes, but there are two caveats to all such materials
1) do not follow them legally but only follow the philosophical part of their teaching which means- if you diversify and live in many different countries you can have a perfect life.
2) they are designed for very rich people and are mostly to help them avoid paying taxes legally. So they sell all these books but laws change daily so most of their stuff is outdated very quickly. So, again, use thier philosophy 'culturally'and philosophically, not 'legally'.
Create your own formula based on the skeletal structure that they provide. Cherry pick their ideas as they apply to you and see how you can create your own version of life similar to thier system but suited uniquely to you.

Ladislav, trust me, I hear you. I am not looking to try to change America anymore. All I can and want to try to do is to strengthen Asia, unite Japan, Korea, and China into a sort of union/mutual alliance, erase the hatred between the Japanese, Chinese, and Koreans, and to strengthen these three countries' ties with Russia. What I don't want to see is WWIII. If Asia can unite and then add on Russia, then if the US has any economic collapse and goes crazy, it would end up being a second cold war as opposed to WWIII, which is good for everyone.
You are right, I am not "going back" anywhere because I was born and raised in America. But America does not really feel like my home and it never has... so you are right that I need to multinationalize, especially now that anti-Asian sentiments are increasing.
I speak Mandarin Chinese fairly fluently, but can only read and write at 3rd grade, extremely basic levels because there is just too much vocabulary I have forgotten and never bothered to pracitce much.
I have lost all my Japanese and must re-learn it basically from scratch because I stopped speaking it when I was 6.
I think I would do ok in Manchurai/Russia-China border or Eastern Russia. The problem is pollution, lack of good nutritious and readily available foods, more lawlessness, etc. in those areas... at least that is what I have heard and the general impression I have. Also, being in commie China and the polluted Chinese lands does not sound appealing at all, nor would it be good considering I already have chronic health problems that depend on air quality.
In your travels to SE Russia (if you have), have you found the air to be good? Like as good as the air in the Pacific Northwest/Washington state? What is the law like? What is crime like? Are jobs readily available?
I am currently beginning to learn Russian from a girl from Kazakhstan and a guy from Russia.
The biggest problem is climate. I have health issues that are unsuitable for warm/hot climates. I am getting surgery to try to remedy some of that and a deviated septum from both congenital and from being punched in the nose. But even with that, I am simply genetically unsuitable for hot/humid or hot/dry or warm climates, because all of my ancestors are northerners -> Manchu/Siberians/Northern Koreans, Hokkaido-Ainu Japanese, Dutch.
Hot air induces minor asthma for me, which is why I cannot even think about going to anywhere near the equator. I had to leave the top-10 US university because of the hot/humid climate. Hot/humid air induces moderate asthma for me. These things are not curable and I had to leave my university because of the unsuitable climate, so relocating to those areas would just be stupid and create more stress in my life and possibly worsen my health and make it so I cannot work or function properly.
So, really, the only places I can go to are Scandinavia, Eastern Russia/Chinese border, Northern Japan, stay in Washington state, or British Columbia Canada. There is nowhere else that has a suitable climate where I can live without having to deal with my health problems as much. And therein lies the problem.
Eastern Russia/Chinese border is somewhat lawless and the pollution in China is pretty bad from what I hear, so I cannot go there unless they really clean up the environment.
Northern Japan may be something to look at, but I imagine that it will get violent there, considering tensions with China and the US presence... unless Japan can successfully kick out America and become allied with China.
Scandinavia is not that good of a idea either considering that there are also many KKK/redneck types there, and the languages are extremely difficult and probably un-learnable at this point in my life.
Canada may still be too close to the US and may still have the same attitudes.
Staying in Washington state is not going to be good unless somehow Washington state secedes and kicks out all the rednecks/KKK types who have moved here from the deep south or Texas.
I plan to go to medical school and become a doctor.. this is another problem. Hopefully I can do this in Canada.
So you see... my health and genetics mean that I must be in cool/cold climates and where there is little or no pollution.... and most places around the world aside from Scandinavia and British Columbia/Washington state are pretty polluted. Going to hot climates is out of the question.
the people who make such comments are simply eejits. theyd single out anyone they could to hurl abuse at, its just an easier outlet for them to do it to minorities. really think hard about what racism truly is and you should realize there is no reason to be personally offended by it. the world is going as it is regardless of your existence. you can either find serenity or frustration in this life, its a simple choice. pride-fueled delusions get you absolutely nowhere. you can resist everything now and experience frustration or accept everything now and find serenity. if you keep in mind that we will all be dead and gone relatively soon, it should influence you towards the correct choice on how to live.
Lone_yakuza, Ladislav is right! It's time to leave the country! Why not go back to Asia? No more excuses. The more you stay in the country and complain, the more crazy you will get! I'm finally heading out of the country (to Russia) to teach English. There's also nothing wrong with going to any of the Asian countries like the Philippines, S. Korea, or even Japan either. All of those places will treat you better than you are treated in America! Yeah, racism exists in this part of the world as well, but at least you won't face the same kind of hatred for being an Asian man as you get in the United States.
There are really two time constraints. First is life itself and the idea that it should be lived to the fullest before death. The other is women's biological clock, which is important to someone like me who wants a family. Heck, even if men wait to have children there's a greater risk of mutations.
Where is this from? Facebook? It doesn't look like it.
Normal people wouldn't say those things just after seeing a movie. Those responses look canned.
Btw, here is the trailer of the film. It looks kind of stupid.
How would the North Koreans invade the US? There's no way that can happen. They wouldn't stand a chance.
If the US army can't defeat them, a bunch of teens can? Yeah right. That's so stupid.

"It takes far less effort to find and move to the society that has what you want than it does to try to reconstruct an existing society to match your standards." - Harry Browne, How I Found Freedom in an Unfree World
please drop this notion, for your own sake. it is a fallacy, not particularly a logical one as logic is only relative. you must see from a higher perspective to really understand. life itself is already full. there is not a single thing to gain or lose as not a single being on earth has ever created or destroyed energy. just being is enough, and all there is. existence in itself is the wonder, and you are not seperate from anything in it. it cannot be understood logically, has to be felt. all i can do is point you to the right direction and hope that you see.
