I haven't been here for over a month, wow what a site! all of you are are right in one form or fashion.
when I see a woman slapped, I'd love to see it one time that she hit back, custom or not. all of you do calm down, these are dramas, fiction!
one person here on this forum mentioned their culture, their upbringing . in a sense their beliefs & upbringing. Yeah it's the 21st century and all, but for someone to come to/at me and tell me I shouldn't speak English but Spanish( sorry Spanish friends) and Yes versa, that isn't easy. BTW I understand our English is harder to learn than say Korean. sorry off the subject at hand. yes, race discrimination is terrible. I suffered as well, when I was younger, I am from the midwest(USA) and coming to North Carolina in the 60's, big difference.
I went to school with blacks, Asians, Spanish.( in Seattle Washington) and when I came to NC and befriended blacks ( sorry I don't mean to offend) but others ridiculed me. and osterized me, I didn't have friends then.and i now try my best to be open to everyone.
(p/s the 6o's was racial uprising then)
you know we as a people no matter the color, creed or religion or whatever, we should find some common ground and get along with each other. yeah, we are talking about the dramas and all, I admit I do love these, to me they are sometimes a lot better than the American ones.
have you noticed they don't touch, even an honest holding a hand is taboo? and the Americanized and some of the other foreign films jump into bed at the first meeting! that what turns me off. these Asian dramas & movies, yeah drinking, faces slapped, bullying( per boys over flowers , two I can think of,& heirs)
So yes the Asians need to drop their oldfashioned cultures and get into the 21st century. BUT that's not for me to say. these people are so, what do I call it?< humble, but not doormats.
I would hate to see that culture is removed, well except not treating women so badly that is. shucks if we had more of that in our country, wonder if it would be better off, per these shootings here recently. so tragic.
I would rather watch a clean cut drama even with the faces slapped, bullying, poor girl rich guy, oh yeah less vulgar language than the ones on the other side of the world!
heres one that hasn't been mentioned. My dad was in WW2, and I had a lot of his views about Italians & Japanese. so it isn't the color of the skin, but views of who what where when how why, they did to others if that makes sense. Look our culture, not just the blacks, but our American Indians also comes into play here,
so find some common ground, huh?
Garbage in Garbage out. we can always find some bad with the good.
so all of you critical, judgmental? just pick & choose wisely,k?
the food is_fabulous!
the historical dramas are awesome, I love history, but a lot of times they drag on too.
ok nuff said, racisim is a worldwide prob. we need to start in our own back yard so to speak, and do something about it then.
