Has the North Korean bomb threat increased racism and prejudice towards Asians in America?

I'm deeply concerned about this. I am Asian (Chinese) and quite frankly, I don't think it's fair if there is more prejudice towards Asians because of North Korea.

Not every Asian in America supports the North Koreans. I, for one, VERY VERY STRONGLY disagree with what the North Koreans are doing. I haven't seen any prejudice so far, and hopefully there won't be any prejudice or discrimination towards us.

I seriously doubt that [italic]any[/italic] Asian in America supports the North Koreans. The NK government (as distinct from the NK populace) is nuts & most people realize that, including Asians everywhere.

I don't know a single person who views this situation as blameworthy among all Asians, and especially not Asian Americans. The Koreans in the US are either overwhelmingly from SK or else refugees and escapees from NK (I'm guessing more of the former). I don't think anyone (intelligent) suspects there are NK sleeper cells among us.

Having said that, I'm sure some idiot redneck is going to be in the news for harassing an Asian business or somesuch, but these are isolated incidents.

Unlikely. But if it did, it would make about as much sense - none - as Islamic terrorism increasing hatred of and prejudice against Muslims.

Everyone knows Americans are stupid enough to jump to this conclusion, the same way they killed Sikhs after 9/11.

But how do they reconcile the erratic, desperate behaviour of a Korean boy dictator with his hilarious pony riding in the Gangnam Style video they saw on YouTube?

It doesn't take much to increase racism and prejudice in America.

You sound like you're just aching tone a victim, OP.

I hope you didn't just prove that fact about Americans being stupid by essentially stating that the problem with the idiots who murdered Sikhs was merely that the targets were Sikh.

Do I really have to tell you murdering innocent people based on race/religion/sex. pref/etc., is wrong or did you already know there is no justification even if the target of murder was the "right" religion?

The only people who take this threat seriously are stupid idiots who already are racist.

It has nothing to do with North Korea, op.

OP, are you afraid that you won't be able to blend in and be a de-facto white anymore?

I'm *quite* sure OP is Asian.

Oh, and OP, I remember when you tried this a few weeks ago.

Get a life.

IIRC, this happened once.

Obvious troll.

Whatever happened to the asshole who shot the Sikh in so-called retaliation for 9/11?

He must have felt pretty fucking stupid when he realized he threw away his own freedom in a pointless gesture that didn't even possess the crazed meaning he had thought it did.

Angry people look for outlets for that anger.

Americans are broke, unemployed and angry.
