Shout out to my brothers in SanDiego!
I was thinking it's kinda interesting that Asian Americans haven't made much impact on American popular culture. Asians have, but it's imported.
Movies, shows, and music from Korea are pretty popular in America, and Anime and fashion from Japan is pretty popular as well.
Hopefully more Asian Americans can get into the arts and start shifting popular culture. I think they might. We have a lot of people now who grew up poor with immigrant parents who went into more steady, reliable careers. I think the luxury of growing up middle/upper class for this next generation might lead to more kids into the arts and sports.

Not just mom & pop places, I sometimes go to Jollibee and Max's and when the bill comes, I be likefilipino food is very slept on compared to other cultures... the food is just not popular in the general public...and the crazy thing is the food at mom and pops joints are crazy overpriced for a small serving
They deadass overcharge for all the stuff at the "American" Jollibees, Max's and any other Filipino franchise restaurants/cafes that are brought over here. Just 'cuz you're trying to match it up to the "living expenses" of how much folk pay over in the Philippines, it don't mean you gotta gut the living **** outta the people that live outside of the Philippines.Not just mom & pop places, I sometimes go to Jollibee and Max's and when the bill comes, I be like
And you're not even getting anything out of the ordinary either.
I made this thread because there are alot of Filipinos on NT, and the Asian culture thread is mostly full of Japanese, Korean and Chinese discussions.Only reason I ask is because I was curious as to why you guys created a new thread instead of just posting in the Asian culture thread. I assumed maybe you guys didn’t identify as Asian.
