And in my defense, I apologized for coming off as a "rabid wolf" and asshole to you immediately before the whole page exploded with commentary. In any case, no, I do not think "collective characteristics" are a form of racism. If that were the case, then I'd imagine everyone I knew would be considered a racist.

Neilsen may have statistics which agree with you, but coming from a densely populated Asian community, I can tell you otherwise. The response I gave was adequately posed--I wasn't attacking you (merely being cynical and sarcastic) and I never called you a racist. I was being honest. Once again, I'm not interested in picking a fight with you nor am I interested in elaborating the reasons why I didn't agree with what you said.

Anyway, stop reading in between the lines because truthfully, I have nothing more to say than the words spelled out in text.<br> + <br> + As for trivializing my cultural identity, that whole explosion of commentary was one way in which my cultural identity gets trivialized. People who don't know anything about the Asian American community making their remarks on something personal to me. When you take something so inherently personal and place it in an arena where it gets questioned and talked about by people who think they know what their talking about (and that doesn't go for just you, but for everyone), that is a form of trivialization.
