OMG:

As a student of Chinese descent, I'm disappointed at how easy it is for people to criticize international students and their habits. I understand that they may be loud, spoiled and unwilling to integrate into Canadian culture, and in fact, many Chinese-Canadians feel the same way. However, seeing comments that generalize those students just seems disrespectful to me.

  1. If I say that most international students I've met have had atrocious manners and no respect for others that's not disrespectful, that's an observation.

    1. Exactly.

      OP can hate it all he/she wants, it doesn't change the truth.

    2. Agreed. Besides, the posters are generally relating anecdotal evidence; you'd think OP , being a uni student and all, would be able to unplug him/herself from the tribal mind long enough to see it for what it is.

    3. I've observed most of us have atrocious manners, regardless of race. In my experience we don't really care to show respect. It's just not important enough for us to put effort into that.

  3. We do not generalize them, it is simply a fact that they are impolite and incredibly stupid. They simply do not have the mental capacity to learn English. Whenever you speak with them, they only speak with their own in their own language while they point and laugh at you. You try teaching your dog theoretical physics and you will see what I mean. It is absolutely not their fault though, as OP mentioned, they simply cannot help it!

    1. Grade A low-effort bait, this.

  4. This racism is disgusting, disgraceful and very upsetting to the Chinese students who may come across this forum. We have different cultures in this world, they come here, they are good people, they have their ways and what helps to change some of those ways is by gently and constantly and nicely reminding them that hey we don't quite do that here and eventually they get the message. Treat them badly and they will respond badly. Simple respect.

    I have found the Chinese to be come of the kindest, nicest, smartest, hardworking, and most loyal friends you can have.

    Every race and culture has it's share of obnoxious folks including us white folks, the brown and all others. Some are quite f-ing ignorant too and it can be quite frustrating. The Chinese are the least of my worries.

  5. Tbh I really don't mind Chinese people or even Indians. They all seem to be hard-working and educated people. Muslims, on the other hand, I'd rather they stay in their countries and the farther from us the better. Let's not be racist against people who don't deserve racism, else we end up discrediting even justified racism.

    1. My roommates are saudis and they're some of the most disrespectful people I have ever met. Can't wait for this year to be over.

  6. On one hand, as a Chinese-Canadian, some of the current international students drive me nuts. On the other, my parents came here as international students. Then again, some of them are awesome group members and some of the only people who haven't let me down. Conclusion: Spoiled brats are spoiled brats, no matter what their race is. Just because most of the ones you recognize are Asian doesn't mean that a) all Asians are spoiled brats, and b) all spoiled brats are Asian. We're supposed to be one of the best schools for logic and evidence-based observation, c'mon guys.
