Oops!! You know ... as people get older, they just tend to just spit out what they're thinking off the top of their heads at the moment!! Marion's telling it like it is. But also, he needs to stress how important it is that there be Black business owners ready to take their place. It's not just about buying a shop and opening up the door. You have to have the business skills to be able to make it successful.

“We are tired of sub-standard treatment, tired of being kept [at] arms length distance, tired of the lack of community engagement.” Hmmmmm…well….actually, I agree with him. Unfortunately, Asians believe Negroes are lazy, inept, lack the necessary intellectual skills to compete and have no family structure that is standard for other races and ethnicities. But whose fault is this? Whether you agree with it or not – perception is reality to most people. Since American Negroes openly and...

Asians have historically before even European contact rejected dark skin Asians. Combine that with intra Asian aggression and WW2 Japan, you get legit political reasons for Asians to not like each other.

In social services I've observed some different family dynamics with East Asian families. I've seen elderly people be yelled at by spouses and children for being, feeble,forgetful and needing services. I've seen Asian women totally unaware of rights, options, services they are entitled to. But I've also seen Korean women be extra feisty toward their men in hair shops. Every family and every community operates from a set of values and its fascinating to observe. There is no model minority.
