    Where are all the homeless asian people in the US???

    I've visited a number of large cities in the US and I've never seen homeless asian bums standing on street corners panhandling. There are no asian hippies either for that matter...

    What gives?

    Mebe homeless people are so covered in layers of clothing, and a layer of dirt, that you can't tell unless you really pay attention to them. My limited experience would suggest that the average tax paying citizen avoids looking/studying too closely.

    Asians have a work ethic. Caucasians have the lazy gene and it gets the better of some of us.

    i dont remember seeing any asian bums in the US, but i´ve seen a few here, mostly in chinatown.
    but the ones i´ve seen are chinese, not japanese. i´d guess 2nd gen chinese people.

    on the other hand, the japanese descendants, nissei and nikkei are way overrepresented in the political class....

    I guess it depends on where you live but here in SoCal all the bums I see are either black or white.

    This is true. They are the hardest working folk I have seen. They also have large, tight family groups that take good care of their own. They will shell out $$ to take care of the group before buying an Xbox or a SUV.

    looks like we need some affirmative action to keep it on even keel.
    ya know, swap out some sharp engineering students.

    does it seem to anyone else that on the societal continuum that asians are at worst gang-banger wanna-be's who heavily mod their 4-cyl cars? they have some serious work to do if they want to get down here w/ the true dregs of american society.

    RM beat me to it. I was also going to say that perhaps you don't see any Asian bums is possibly because of their tight familial groups and work ethic. I have had many asian friends of over the years and I have always noticed how close they are and that the younger folks really do seem to have respect for their elders. Very refreshing.

    Maybe for the same reason you don't see many stray cats around Teriyaki joints

    And you guys wonder why their Chicken Lunch Special is so cheap....
