not try to provoke.. but according to my experience.. it always happen.. those people only think asian people -- more specific- indonesia people not really respected by Western people.. even if we have equal education in europe/ US.. but they still thinking they are more superior than us.. getting worse if we are immigrant and live in their country, getting worse again if we live in European countries..
they only think indo women as sex object..
oh gosh, if i can choose, how if the world history is converted ? How if we --asian people-- who occupied them? and have many colony at European countries..

Interesting n Provoking Subject.

But let me see it from other perspective.

We are equal before God. What make us different is how good we relate to other people, treat other people, and so on and so on and so on ...

So, (esp. If you believe in GOD) What other people think and say about us don't important anymore...

DQ - I was the most racist man in the world, until i did MBA with a lot of Asian students.

I was suprised to find they knew a lot more than me, they were fun, they could out drink me, out think me, out argue me, and were a lot better looking. I discovered Asian girls, and never looked back.

BUT - to western eyes a lot of Asian cultures and ideas make them look inferior by Western standards. Corruption, inability to trust, lack of commitment, inability to meet time lines, and general lethargy/lazyness, all make Westerners feel superior.

I do a fair bit of work in Asia, I llove the region, but 10 days of the month i coulsd cheerfully kick every ass in sight because I get sooo frustrated.

KUKU :

I agree this..
my ex boss sometime always said something not good about indo people, and i will say to my self : "come on, u just talk something worse about my people????"
sometime i have argues with those expat managers....

ROSCO : Corruption, inability to trust, lack of commitment, inability to meet time lines, and general lethargy/lazyness, all make Westerners feel superior.

yes.. it's old fellows, but i think us -- the young welleducated indo people get fed up with those bad manners of oldies people

I do a lot of work for a well known Indo company. I admire this company so much..... the people I work with are smart, fast, go ahead and full of life. They are an absolute credit to Indonesia. they give 100%, and i hope I give them 100% in return. Sometimes i ask the impossible, they smile, and they deliver.

It it worth understanding that the West doesnt really want Asia to get its act together, because if it does it will totally outperform them (the USA was terrified of Japan in the late 1980s). But things are changing.... your generration will do very well indeed (and you deserve to)

I had better add: -

the cultural differences are what cause the problem. Asians tend never to admit to not knowing or understanding. Last week I watched an expat trying to show a (very good) Indo programmer something VERY complex. The indo guy got up and walked away - BECAUSE he had become confused. The expat didnít understand Asian culture and went ballistic. The Indo guy could not admit that he had lost the thread, and it was his way of breaking the situation. The expat thought the Programmer didnít care.

Asians never say no, even if ĎyesĒ is impossible. This is why Westerners think they break agreements, donít meet deadlines, donít deliver.

Asians, donít admit they donít understand. This confuses and annoys Westerners.

Western culture is just as bad. I make whole lot of mistakes. I try hard to understand.

Hi I'm new here and I thought Iíll jump right in.

I'm sorry but I have to disagree on this one D_Q. We Europeans think of all women of all race and culture as sex objects. smile

I think most westerners feel superior to each other as well. For example; I hate my European colleges, because they think there so f*cking smart, but actually they are complete morons. And guess what? They hate me to. Guess Why?


Donít get me wrong. I donít want to be ignorant to the problem. But donít you think itís more of a cultural thing?


It took me more then 10 years to understand what fine, smart and lovely people Indonesians are. Believe me, some of those years where the worst of my life.
I wouldnít be surprised if it took you lesser time to determine that European people are complete bastards?

DQ,

there is an old saying "money talks, bullshit walks". Applicable worldwide, especially in Europe and US. during my college years in the US i showed them that we are in a better shape than the rest of the students....cars and big house. to my surprise, it works. they are all so nice.
And now, it's even more applicable, even to expats. my 2 cents

Be pragmatic and realistic.....money is not everything, but in most cases you will get the following:
1. Nice gal according to yr specifications
2. Car, again, according to your wish list
3. An expat office boy....willing to do anything. most of them are fakes anyway, means that they can't compete for a job in their home country. not all, but most. Have actually seen 3 expats carrying their boss' briefcase and papers which happen to be my friends. Think i will get one also....any takers?

indonesia would be a lot better off if the dutch came back. maybe we should make a petition apologizing to the dutch, and beg them to take over the government again.

They think the EU is some sort of funding body for their stupid farmers.

They think that French is the ONLY language in the world (do you know they BAN English on TV and Radio, and fine announcers for saying any Englsih words - how STUPID!)

They think they won WW1 and WW2 (they caused both)

I think it typifies France when you lean that they invented barbed wire and the ciggarette!!!

basically, if a man doesn't think of a breeding age woman as a sex object, then he's not a man. sorry ladies, that's reality.

yep, no shortage of western shitheads. (see http://www.okusi.net/cgi/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic;f=8;t=000006 for an exposition of western shitheadedness.)
