Today, a kid from my school called me, saying he's going on vacation to Japan soon and that since I was born there, I could teach him the language. His exact words at the start of the call were: "Hey man, you speak Asian, right?" I have to be around this shithead 5 days a week. FML

Yeah because the generation that threw all the Japanese (maybe I should say "damn japs" to make the sarcasm more blatant) into prison after Pearl Harbor had their shit together!
Pull your head out of your colon #1.

Alright, this guy may be a shithead, but I don't think what he said was that bad. I have a Japanese friend and it sounds like something I'd say.. To me it seems like this kid actually wants to learn a bit of Japanese but doesn't want to admit it. Maybe he thinks it will be cooler if he turns it almost into a joke. It's stupid to be embarrassed about something like, that but a lot of people are. This alone doesn't make him a bad person.


@80, your comment basically sums up to "I'm not racist, I have a Japanse friend". Guess what? It's still racist.

Whether or not the guy OP knows was trying to be funny, it was ignorant. If anyone would rather come across as racist than admit they want to learn something, they really need to sort out their priorities.

Do what Russell Peters did. Say whatever the sentence is in English, but the way a stereotypical Asian person would. Any race would be fine since all types of Asians are the same to him apparently. Mimic Russell if you want to speak "Indian".

@52 : I presume you missed the segment on the DVD where he says, "There is no language called Indian. So I have no clue what the fuck you're talking about".

62: That is why I put Indian in quotes. Two of my very best friends are Indians. Tamil is one language Indians speak. Urdu another. Hindi yet another.

You basically missed my whole point and the irony is, you're Indian!

71, I think you're one of few who use the term Indian properly, people tend to call me Indian when I'm Mi'kmaq/native/Lnu (whichever you prefer) and I get a kick out of people who don't know haha

Some people our age are total retards and don't know shit about geography. If he's going to a country he has to know what's the language called and where it is! I would gladly take his place and appreciate EVERY minute of it! He need no get EDUCATED!

Teach him something like "I am a terrorist, and I want to hurt a many people as possible." Tell him it is an everyday greeting to be shared with everyone he meets.
That should get him an extended vacation, and you won't have to deal with him for awhile.

and I'm pretty sure I didn't say op agreed to teach him. odds are if he asked once he'll ask twice. if OP simply suggests an alternative said shithead would be easily avoidable henceforth.

#81 I've heard that Rosetta Stone is actually quite good but in order for you to learn a foreign language you have to work on it for hours every day . People buy Rosetta Stone and don't use it as often as they should.
