Are You as Afraid of Chinese People as Much as I Am? Apparently So

Posted by Prince Gomolvilas
ON Monday, February 09, 2009

As you may know, when you type a few words into the Google search box, Google will suggest what the full search term may be, according to what other people are searching for. If you go to Google right now (as of this writing) and type in "I am extremely" (no quotes necessary), one of the top search terms is "I am extremely terrified of Chinese people."

Seriously. Look at this screenshot:

    I think everyone is taking this in a wrong way,
    just saying insults, instead of trying to give the valid point.
    I am scared of Chinese people,
    Yet my best friend is a chinese girl.
    I don't quiet know how to explain it, but I guess it's because we don't know much of the asian culture, (or most eastern culture)and when we do, we only here of things like North Korea trying to bomb us, poison scares, etc, etc. We fear that which we do not know.

    It's not really the people that scare me (not for their looks) but for their culture, I don't know much about the culture, only rumors, of terrible things (sweat shops, etc) But if you think about it, they are owned by american companies.

    So either way, the only way to overcome this strange "fear" is by learning, instead of being kept in the dark about it.

    Americans, stop being pricks and acting like they are from a goddamn different planet, it's why they friggin say we are idiots
    Asians, shut the hell up about being geniuses, you guys have the goddamn highest suicide rates, shouldn't you guys be smarter then that?


  15. Anonymous Said,

    Actually, a lot of asian people are smarter than most. They may not be geniuses but some are a lot smarter...
    Example, Most of the asians who came to where I live are the smartest in their class. I'm the top of my class and I came from Asia as well.
    Even though I say this, there are many other people from different cultures who can be smarter than us as well. I'm not saying that asians are all smart and geniuses and all that. I'm just saying that we get a pretty good education and we learn quickly; not that we are all smarter than you.
    The only reason I wrote this is because of the last comment by anonymous::::

    "Asians, shut the hell up about being geniuses, you guys have the goddamn highest suicide rates, shouldn't you guys be smarter then that?"

    You could have said that in a polite way! Example:
    "Asians are not all geniuses as I hear from most but I believe I have proof that this may not be true."

    Asians, (or chinese in particular) are just human beings. They have they same human genes (the things that make us distinctly human or anything else, for that matter) as any other human walking down the street.
    Also, to the poster above me. There is no proof of penis size having anything to do with race what-so-ever, and your comment shows your ignorance. But you don't have to take my word for it, here's a link that clearly states that race has nothing to do with penis size.
    As for people being afraid of Chinese, it's probably attributed to those individuals having a mild to strong case of Xenophobia. Xenophobia is the fear of foreigners in general, but can be used to describe anyone who has a fear of any race other than their own.
    To "Anonymous Asian 13 year old Girl", you sound arrogant. Suggesting that "all asians are just TYPICALLY more intelligent to others" is both culturally arrogant and culturally ignorant. In your post, you SEEM to be trying to come off as culturally sensitive by stating that, "there are many other people from different cultures who can be smarter than us as well." But then you turn around and counter that statement by reinforcing the idea that Asians are always more intelligent immediately after by saying, "I'm just saying that we get a pretty good education and we learn quickly..."
    Are you suggesting that other races are not capable of learning or retaining knowledge at the same rate you do? Or that other educational systems are somehow all lacking by comparison to the Asian Educational system?
    Hate to burst your racial-glory bubble, but recent studies showing national IQ statistics list China, in particular, as 12th most intelligent Country. Nothing to scoff at, certainly. But the most intelligent? Clearly not.
    But in the end of things, that's just the Countries ratings, and doesn't take account for each race living in that Country. For example, not every person in the IQ rating for Germany (which is ranked 6th) is nessecarily German, they could be French, or African, or American. So really, the IQ is coming from THEIR educational system, and not the actual race itself. And you know what THAT tells you? It tells you that EVERY RACE has an equal chance to learn, succeed, and be considered "smart". All they need are the right tools. Which boils down to this. THERE IS NO ONE RACE SMARTER THAN THE OTHER.
    As for these people with Xenophobia towards Chinese, they should be pitied, not made fun of. Clearly they are ignorant to the universal fact that we are all the same thing, HUMAN.


  23. OMG, is this comments thread for real?


  24. Anonymous Said,

    IQ test are poorly standardised and were designed to discriminate, think about the questions: recognising certain number patterns like prime numbers, square roots etc, putting letters together to make a word. All of those things you've probably learnt from your education system, so how is it fair when you take an American IQ test and ask an African/ Chinese/ Indian etc person to do it, then rate them? Forget about IQ tests and don't even bother quoting them.

    Also the term intelligence is difficult to define, being good at exams really doesn't make you are smart, no matter what your mum and dad tells you, but you are only 13 so I agree you probably got your arrogance from family pressure. Think about artist who are creative and imaginative, they might not come top at your maths class but I bet they are pretty smart too, so how do you measure that with an IQ test?

    In evolutionary terms we are a very young specie, boardly there are only 4-5 major variant genetically from when our ancestors migrated from Africa to the rest of the World, you are not talking about 10-20% you are talking of maybe 0.5% difference in certain gene expression pattern and we are currently looking into epigenetics to see if we can find things like age, sex, race linking to certain diseases.

    When you use the term Asian or "Chinese people" you are just stereotyping thinking we all eat chowmain and awesome at Kung Fu, kidding aside, on an individual level a person is just a person. As a group certain behavoural patterns are learnt from the society we live in, and lets not get into which country is behaving badly, we will be here all day.

    I am genetically Asian but have a very British up bringing so how do you categorise me? British or Chinese? Can you see the problem?

    Please don't try to make connection between race with penis size, intelligence and apperances. . . not only they are superfical, there are also very little evidence out there and none of these studies are good quality (and yes, your news paper survey is not a good source of scientific facts), just think, how are they going to design an unbias study looking into those things?

    Just a Scientist

    .... ok these last two posts need to get a life seriously wow youre so intelligent... are you asian perhaps?!?! hahahah

    anyways this whole thing is hilarious and i think maybe people are scared of chinese ppl cuz of crazy martial arts movies with flying and crazy secret ninja techniques


  26. Anonymous Said,

    i also have to say... im sorry but stereotypes arise from some sort of pattern with truth to it so although they cant be taken as FACT (theres always exceptions) they are GENERALIZATIONS so too bad small-penised guy - asians are smaller on average its just fact dont get all offended its the motion of the ocean anyway geeeezzzzz


  27. Anonymous Said,

    Dude, I am asian and I am the top at science in my class, its not because I am asian ( directly ). Asian have more family pressure, er I mean "support" when it comes to education.


  28. Anonymous Said,

    This is completely out of control!

    Saying that someone is clever because they are Chinese is a positive stereotype. I know that it is not true because of genetics, it may be from pressure in the home.

    Also, the 13 year old doesn't sound arrogant at all. She is merely stating a reaction to what was said, quite offensively, before her. Often you will find that those who are not Asian and see an Asian at the top of their class are jealous. Just a point to throw out there.

    Besides, it is rather irrational to be afraid of Chinese people. They are just people the same as everybody else.

    P.S. I am not Asian, I don't see how it makes any difference anyway.


  29. Anonymous Said,

    No one has stated why they are afraid of Chinese people. Where did IQ or anotomical parts come into play. If anyone has anything intelligent to say please give a substantial reason why you are afraid of Chinese people.....until then stop responding to this stupid thread because there's nothing really to defend. All these close-minded comments about Chinese food just proves what kind of retards are out there. If you want to post a dumb ass comment like that, then state your nationality and i'll find fault in it, so get off your fuckin high horse. They know nothing about the Chinese culture or have made any attempts at getting to know it. I don't need to concern myself about insulting others racial make up to make myself feel, to all you faggot motherfuckers who think you know what the fuck you're talking about.......FUCK YOU!!! LOL

    The fear of Chinese people actually comes from the "red scare." That was during the Cold war people were afraid that we may be invaded by Red China and what not so it is logical to assume that this fear comes from a an old prejudice against a threat that now no longer exists.

    ok i am very afraid of asian ppl. i have asian friends which is cool cuz we have kung fu battles and stuff not even a joke. I dont know y asians scare me they just do its something about their shifty attitude and overly polite demeanor. Its not all asian ppl sometimes i just have episodes of asian phobia. i really dont think im alone on this. To all asian ppl dont be offended u can just come off as shifty and u always seem to have ulterior motives. im sure its the same way that americans come off as fat ignorant assholes even though the majority of us aren't

    The reason Chinese people are so intelligent is because it is in their culture to be pressurized by parents to work harder, do things harder, and all else. It isn't because of our race!


  78. racists = cunts. Said,

    oh god. i am half chinese half white. being afraid of chinese people is like saying chinese people being afraid of any other race. we just look different and talk differently. actually i only look slightly chinese and if you only heard my voice you would think i was white, as i dont know any manderin/cantonese apart from ni hao. anyway asians can be smart and can not be, i am half asian and smart, another asian girl in my class isn't smart. it varies. and just because a lot of asian people are smart, doesn't mean you make fun of us, like the "math city bitch" picture is of a chinese man, i find that extremely offensive. i am also quite offended when people do the small eyes thing. oh god. my eyes are actually pretty big and we can see you, do you think that chinese/japanese people WANT small eyes? stop judging us because of our race you cunts, i hate all you racists, you're all bitches.

    Look, don't be racist! I am chinese/european and this is extremely insulting. This is like saying americans are scary because they gather in large angry mobs. And some asians are not as smart as you think they are. There is a guy in my grade who is asian and is a not academically smart. Also, we all don't have squinty eyes! Some of our eyes are just almond-shaped! it varies, a lot. So no more stuff on the small eyes. All you racists are asses.
