A Question

Postby drblue » June 3rd, 2013, 5:13 am

It is not a troll or I do not mean to offend any people, but I am curious.

Can non white people from a western country be called a western people?
I mean Is an Asian man (or black) born and raised in USA a western man?

Yes; for example, an Asian American is very different than an Asian person living in Asia. Asian Americans act and talk like Americans, not Asians! That's why it's such a culture shock for Asian Americans when they go back to their country of origin. It happened to me--the first time I went back to South Korea. Yet, strangely enough, even though I was an outsider in many ways in that country, I felt more 'Korean' and comfortable in my own skin than when I was back home in the United States. I've never really felt comfortable being an Asian in America, ever since I was young. I other Asian Americans feel this way, too?

If a foreigner goes to the west for a short time, they are just fools.

If they stay in the west for a long time, they are westerners. To me, it's not about the residence, it's about the corruption. Foreigners get corrupted by western values within months.
