My parents, or more like mom, didn't react the best to my telling them that my boyfriend is Chinese. Still doesn't.. Asks me if I 'really' like him, someone with such different cultural traditions and no religion of his own. Despite my enjoying myself very much when he invites me to join him to various family functions, she insists I'm going to feel like a foreigner if I continue frequenting these various functions. Not true at all, I couldn't be made to feel any more welcome.
She treat him politely, and I know I can't change her mind. If she refuses to let go ot her old-age traditions of marrying inter-culturally and religiously, so be it. I simply will not be able to abide by that.1

Asians have to be the only race in America that has positive stereotypes. Asian immigrants are seen as the hardest working, most driven, most decisive kinds of people. The kind of people who are actually living the promise of the American dream by coming to a new country, working their butts off (and not complaining about), and raising their children to become doctors.
And they love their rights, too. Remember the LA riots? The Koreans banded together and armed themselves to the teeth to defend their stores from looters because the police were too scared to do it. And then the police kept demanding that they disarm themselves! Luckily they didn't.
But this is all talking about 1st and 2nd generation immigrants. Once they've fully assimilated into mainstream American culture, all races are pretty much the same.5
