It benefited them, they didn't really integrate though, did it benefit the wider society?

wait, i thought koreans and other east asian 'hermit' cultures were paragons of homogeneity and especially notable adepts at not integrating or tolerating other 'tribes'.

can you get your hack science straightened out, once and for all, please?

There is a Daiso next to the one I have been to a few times. I have also bought clothes from uniqlo. All good stuff.
daiso is korean. uniqlo is japanese.
I am aware. The proportion of Japanese and Korean to Chinese is so small on the east coast that in practice all of these stores are staffed and marketed to Chinese.

korean-americans haven't integrated? how do you figure that? there are lots of highly successful, 'nativised' korean-americans (and chinese-americans and japanese-americans, too, for that matter).

there were mass migrations of japanese to brazil in the 20th century. they integrated perfectly well into brazil's coastal cities. there are lots of mixed japanese and brazilian babies (i briefly dated one).

you pontificate with your specious racial theorising but there are any number of examples of pretty successful integration. never seamless or without frictions, no, of course not; but integration and people 'getting on', being part of a community, paying their taxes, sending their kids to school alongside other races, etc, al the same.

the irony of one of the least socially integrated human beings i've ever met judging other group's acculturation and socialisation is just so fucking funny. you emigrated to a highly racially diverse, pluralist liberal democracy and you haven't 'adapted' to australia's modern culture in the slightest. you're living there as if it's fucking rhodesia. laughing my ass off.

Not in my state afaik. But from that link, H Mart and 99 Ranch. Look up the 99 Ranch storefront in Kent, WA. It looks ready to repel goblins. Literally battlements. There's also Boo Han (there was a shooting at one of these) and Uwajimaya (the Bellevue store is pretty nice). And many more. PNW is carpeted with Asian markets. I don't know if there's anywhere along the Puget Sound where one isn't within easy range.
I went to Ranch 99 Saturday. I liked it.

I understand the issues on the west coast but the ones on the east coast look like any other place.

The Koreans learned from the LA riots.
'Roof Korean' is a very sticky meme in American context. Weirdly purloined as a symbol by largely-white gun enthusiasts, and used by some to gleefully stoke discord between Asians and blacks.

Let's not forget that one of the key components of the LA riots flashpoint (apart from the absolutely savage beating of a Rodney King, though a drunk driver is no angel, by "overenthusiastic" police), was the often forgotten1 murder of a 15-year-old girl by a Korean-American store owner over the suspected shoplifting of a dollar-bottle of orange juice that investigators determined she was actually going to pay for with money in hand.

There's also something funny about how the mAsTeR rAcE doesn't have Rooftop Europeans as a mascot instead. Like, where were all y'all toe-faced knuckleheads during the LA riots?

e:
1Anecdotally, more people remember King than Harlins when this comes up. "Can't we all just get along," is an old-timey meme of dankness.

i humbly stand corrected, sir.

i’ve had so many koreans explain to me that the name ‘daiso’ comes from a clever pun on the korean word that it didn’t occur to me that the actual word might have been imported into the korean language by imperial japan. not a fact many koreans would have laboured to explain.

I just finished video chatting for over an hour with a new Chinese girl I met. Slim, 33, and very Chinese. I mean she came here to do graduate school in 2013. She seems really sweet though. I am going to try hard to not fuck this up.

someone who has been in the country for almost a decade doesn't strike me exactly as 'fresh off the boat'.

best of luck. a little bit of pacing this time?

btw you don't need to describe east asians as 'slim' like it's a notable trait, lol. that describes 95% of east asians. it would be much more noteworthy if she was curvy or overweight.

e: just realised you might have meant 'very chinese' as in 'went to grad school'. my bad.

Oh no. I meant she still has a noticable accent and I have to make sure I don't talk too fast. The Taiwanese lady keeps up just fine since she has been here forever. But the new girl is a friendless shut in who works as a web developer. She doesn't know the geography or culture too well. She seems sweet and actually enjoys watching Western media as long as she has subtitles though. The Taiwanese girl was trying to show me clips from a show in Taiwan that YouTube didn't even have English subtitles for.

Ugh I still need to complete breaking up with the Taiwanese girl. I plan to complete that irrespective of whoever is lined up next. I think the Taiwanese girl is well aware I am mentally checked out and is waiting for the shoe to drop.

What a silly situation. Lady you are 40. What are you doing dating a 32 year old? What was I doing? Why is a 40 year old lady suicidal over a decade younger guy she has known for less than 6 months? I suggested she go to therapy.

that's crazy that someone has been in the country for almost a decade and hasn't even learned the basics. not inconceivable, but still.

i mean, it's quite predictable that a woman who lives at home well into the 'spinster' danger territory might get a little wobbly in an intimate or emotional situation. i did say this before but you protested that she was chill and had her life at home with her moms and was settled in it. there was probably a lot of stuff going on beneath the surface with attachments and quickly forming dependencies.

there's only so many times i imagine a 40+ year old can take getting rejected in a newly forming relationship and having to go back home to eat dinner with mum.
