1-27-05 As much as I rant about stuff on this site, rarely have I actually been genuinely angry when writing these articles. Usually I’m in a cynical, sarcastic mood, and I use dark humor to talk about Asian issues. Today is not one of those days. You may or may not have heard about the [...]

They Steal Our Culture

I’ve ranted quite a bit about why Asians are screwed, so on and so forth. So it might seem at first glance surprising, shocking, or even impossible that there might be white guys that actually want to emulate Asians. These white-guys-who-want-to-be- Asian (hereafter referred to as ‘Fried Eggs’ – white on the outside, yellow on [...]

Hi, I’m the Dave mentioned in the FAQ and the author of the Dave Behavioral Paradigms. Some of you are probably wondering why I’m associated with this site, with my distinctively non-Asian-sounding name. The short story is that I’m half white (mostly German and something else I forgot, give me a break they’re all the [...]

So I’ve been pretty hard on girls, both white and Asian (and by extension girls of all races) in the last couple of pages. But if you look really deep, really REALLY deep, the issue goes further than that. The fault doesn’t lie totally with the girls or the white guys who go for them [...]

One of the major factors contributing to Asian Male bitterness is no doubt the parents. Now don’t get me wrong. Asian Parents are generally loving, caring, and doting; nevertheless, there are two very important factors that Asian Parents have on their kids, especially their sons, that instill bitterness.

Alert reader Jin Kim submitted the results of a brief sociological experiment he conducted. The premise was simple: he would find a random Asian girl (via thefacebook.com), IM her, show her this website, and find out what she thought about it as well as some of her background. An excerpt of the IM conversation follows, [...]

Contributed by Tiberius Lowang Hi, I am Tiberius Lowang of Beavercreek, a hardcore immigrant from the Empire, eh, People’s Republic of China. I’m not trying to be cool by using a pseudonym; I prefer this because more people recognize my alias than my real name. Of course, I lack the first-hand experience of girlfriend dumping [...]

The “Model Minority”

June 9, 2008

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20080609/ap_on_re_us/asian_americans_education;_ylt=Ano8GOLeiPeM10aTOifviZis0NUE Here’s an interesting article on the “model minority” phenomenon for Asian kids. I’ve written pretty extensively about the “Asian Parent Syndrome” push to succeed Asian-American kids often get from their families, but I haven’t written as much about outside pressures, or assumptions that “they’re Asian, they don’t need help like other minorities”. Well worth [...]

Yellow Fever

February 18, 2008

Just a quick post to link to an interesting and thought provoking article I ran across: http://www.villagevoice.com/news/0646,chang,74988,2.html The article over a year old, but it’s highly relevant. It’s about the Yellow Fever phenomenon, only from the perspective of the Asian female. It addresses many of the points I’ve ranted/blogged about before – the objectification, the [...]
