For Asian Americans to discuss Asian American issues and topics.

From the Fung Brothers on YouTube, who are well-integrated Asian-American youths in Los Angeles, USA. What they say "Asian," they actually mean "Asian-American." Very funny videos, but these also give others an insight into the intensively cliquish youth scene in Asian-American communities.
These "Types of Asians" in the 2 videos are really just urban cliques and youth subcultures. Winston and I don't fit in any of these categories, and none of those types of women would vibe with us or be interested in us. So if you don't fit in, then prepare for a lonely existence.
However, when I went abroad, I did not find cliques (urban tribes) like these and felt far more welcome and integrated.
18 types of Asian girls
1. ABG, Asian Baby Girl (female Asian gangster)

3. Yappie Asian girl (busy schedule, good car)
4. FOB Asian girl (rich; BOBA = brought over by airplane)

15. Church-loving Asian guy (judgmental, meets girlfriends through church)
I guess I would classify myself as a mixture of number 14 and 15. Haha...
My sister is definitely a number 10 (Hipster girl)...
My brother would be a cross between a number 6 (Bad ass Asian) and number 14 (underachieving Asian)...
And Rock, are you asking this question rhetorically, or do you actually think we can be fit into one of those categories? Monkro said that it's obvious I can't be slotted into any of them. But when shown the list, many Asian Americans (even Zboy) can instantly fit themselves into one of those.
The underlying point is that you're an outcast in the AA community if you're not one of those.
OK we might come close to the "nerd" category, but those are usually the narrow-minded math, hard science, and engineering types who make their parents happy, stick to comfort zones, and stay in small social circles.
On the other hand, it's not as easy to classify people into such discrete categories in rural Southeast Asia.
