If Asian People Said the Stuff White People Say

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Let's just call it for what it is - using racism ironically to make a point about racism.

It's amusing, but it does have a 'resentful minority' whiff about it.

Nah, let it open to be bumped for giggles.

What I liked about that video was not so much the reverse racial stereotypes but their performance. I just love how they dished out their lines.

I think the girl should have said "round eyes" instead of white, like she did later in the video lmao.

This clip is not about "racism," it's about making people realize they are saying the stupidest shit to other people.
I thought it very funny and a good use of humour to illustrate a point. A few months ago I was talking to a Khmer guy who was living in Australia, and who had cultivated a real "ocker" Australian accent. He asked me where I was from and when I said Australia. He replied really, you don't sound Australian :ROFL2:
