    If you really want to see racism/discrimination, you should spend some time in India. I was there for four months this year...the caste system is still very much alive.

    Racism/Classism at it's ultimate! This is a generalization, I know, India is a very large, diverse country.

    I have Indian friends who disowned their daughter for marrying a man from another village (they've lived in Canada for 30 years!) Being the same colour, class and religion was not enough. We cannot even start to scratch the surface of India's discrimination here...

    Ezequiel, I agree with you, it is not necessarily out of ignorance that ppl use the term "Chinese" so recurrently. I'm not saying it's right or wrong, just reality....Bad habits die hard.

    Had a friend here who was Korean he was always called chino at work, when he corrected them was told that we cant tell the difference you all look alike to us. So he started referring to everyone as Haitian, as you all look alike to me, situation changed very quickly.

    It's not hilarious, i have friends here in Atlanta from Peru and Mexico, we have Asian friends in common NOT Chinese, and my Peruvian and Mexican friends know they are not Chinese, but they still call them Chinese, of course, when they're not around.

    By the way, here in the U.S. the majority of people think every Hispanic is a Mexican, i have to correct a lot of people, when they call me Mexican, i politely tell them i'm Dominican, may tell me in my face, that's the same thing

    True, Koreans become indignant at being confused with Chinese. However, they would not publicly express their displeasure, unless out of humour. I worked for Koreans for almost five years. First, for KOTRA (Korean government commercial office), and later, for a Korean trading company, in Caracas. Ample enough time to know their quirks and idiosyncrasies.

    Sorry, but I still think the Korean calling all Dominicans Haitians to get his point across is funny.....
