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.

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:
Lol. My wife calls those people "try hard gwailo".

Very very funny.

It's a step up for New Gen Asians, the old ones were too shy and introverted to speak out. Hard to find decent Asian actors and comedians if the culture is introverted.

Quite funny, much like the Dave Chappelle show. About as racist too. ;) Juat gotta laugh it up!

We're 'enjoying' cable TV for the first time - as a linguist I find myself subconsciously grinding my teeth and realise it's because of the 'cultured accent' the ad announcers use. Nothing like putting the wrong emPHAsis on the right sylLAble. That ad about living korREEan really craps me.

Fairly amusing

And now for a great work of humor from a much more self-confident ethnic crew.

While we're being faux racist, this is mildly amusing... The Call Centre
