Japanese = Asian Englishmen. They are the second biggest customers of Savile Row in England. That says it all.
Chinese = Asian Continentals, an amalgamation of Russians, French, and Germans. They are basically Asian Roman-Byzantines.
Koreans = The (Ulster) Irishmen of Asia. They drink, they fight, they hate each other, and everyone else. They are liable to fall apart on their own, but do great things under Anglo tutelage.
P.J. O’Rourke said much the same thing after a visit to Seoul: Koreans reminded him of his own Protestant Irish family.
Taiwanese = If the Chinese are Asian Russians, the Taiwanese are Asian Serbo-Croats. They do well economically, but have the highest murder rate in East Asia.
Filipinos = Asian Italians. Catholics who keep their heads down and do trade/service labor with good cheer. A little on the slow side.
Indochinese (Vietnamese/Laotians/Cambodians) = Asian Balkans, I suppose. But really Asian Salvadorans. Some of them work hard, others join violent gangs. Still others (if from the mountains) hunt people in the woods.
Thai = Asian Mexicans. Hard working, moderate IQ folks with spicy food.
Indians = Asian equivalents of Middle Easterners in Europe. A small subset is made up of very high IQ folks of ancient tradition, but the rest are liable to be low IQ gang-rapists.
Indonesians/Malaysians = Asian North Africans. Most are mellow, but the religious ones are scary.
Singaporeans = Asian Swiss. Clean, corruption-free, and oh-so-superior to everyone else around them. Don’t litter – or you will pay a fine.
