I, a Vietnamese person, see a lot of this conceited things as well as things that just aren't true at all. Everyone who's writing the hate stuff about Vietnamese people are just...wtf man. I saw a person that wrote how we just rip off from Chinese, Korean, Japanese, all that stuff. Well you know what? We barely have ANYTHING that the Japanese have, in Vietnam we learn to how to do many useful things in life at a young age that many Americans can't. Chinese? They freaking ruled over us for many years so our words derived from them. Our writing style derived from French. Korean? You're just naming another country. Most of us are hardworking. You know why? Because most of our parents come from Vietnam coming to America with nearly nothing but their clothes and a few cents of change. There's a few people who don't want to work hard because they're not caring or live in a bad environment, but most of us do. We do not say "du ma" every few seconds, but Americans always ask us how to say "eff you" in Vietnamese, so don't blame us. No we don't all do nails, or all computer engineers, or all doctors and stuff. Yes, we have contributed to modern day. One of the most recent ones is the "mind control wheelchair" for those who are completely paralyzed on their whole body. We aren't all short, or have squeeky voices, or have tiny eyes.
Stereotypes aren't real. If ALL Vietnamese (Asians in general) were small, squeeky voiced, only drive Hondas and Toyotas, eat dog, are Buddhist and have small eyes, then black people all love fried chicken, watermelon, listen to rap, basketball, giant eyes, love purple drank, driving in Cadilacs, and be over 6 feet tall. All white people would be listening to country, hunting, eating deer, and driving trucks.
