seriously, i don't understand this. everybody seems to have this stereotype that asian kids, in general, are smarter then the rest. i grew up with this stereotype attached to me and i must say that it's pretty annoying. i remember during any labs in high school, everybody would want to be partners with me because they thought i was smart. they seem to have this assumption that intelligence is part of our genes or something. they base their stereotype for asians in america on asians in asia. but even in asia, it's not in their genes! it's culture that promotes intelligence not nature. and then in college, when i'd work on projects with people they'd always make the comment "c'mon man, you're korean!" even though it's meant as a joke, look at the stereotype. then when i'd get my exam scores back everybody would make some association with my grade and my ethnicity. it's a good stereotype, but it's a bad one at the same time. with this kind of stereotype people put you on a pedestal with expectations. any other asians here feel the same way?
