I always thought it was that snake oil was discounted because it was made by "stupid foreigners". After all at the time it first came around asians were not held in very high esteem and so anything they made was seen negatively.
Yes, the horses are pretty, the Germans... well that's up to personal opinions.
The Asians where you were may have been dismissed.
The Asians where I was were not.
The early years were very difficult.
The early years of the American West were tough on most people.
The Asians had a special status. Is it ok to write about it, now?
Black Men were perceived as a threat to White Men.
That was very dangerous to the Black Men.
Black Men have been killed and worse for being Beautiful.
Asian Men on the other hand had the status of Women.
That was very fucking handy.
Some of the pop rumors or Lies about Asian Men helped to perpetuate the prejudice.
Like women, Asian Men were given some weird supernatural qualities by those that did not know anything.
Some of the skills must have seemed supernatural.
I am sorry the Black Men could not fly under the Radar Screen, like Asian Men did.
Not all, but many Asian Men came to the US with Math and Science skills that looked like Magic to ignorant Whites.
Asian Men were not large and threatening. Asian Men did Woman's work.
Some of that shit is still going on. It is funny. shh. Don't tell.

I think this will be a fun year.
Yes. It will be a fun year.
Are you Nursing or Medical?
There is a little difference.
That stuff is fun. Sort of.
It is also a lot of responsibility.
Are you Dutch?
Are you Friesian?
Oh! A Friesian on a Friesian.
That might be good!
Are the Dutch Frisians pretty?
