    I guess it’s better than nothing, but I just don’t agree with it. Break dancing is part of ghetto culture and that was what all the ghetto Khmer Americans were doing. For the most part, it doesn’t benefit Khmer people. While Khmer kids are break dancing and some practicing kpop dances, other races are focusing on doing things educationally that prepare them to be competitive in the work world. Now fast forward 10-20 years later, and most of the break dancers are loser adults who raise children that are reliant on government assistance. The kids who focused on school get the good jobs and make the most money.

    I don’t understand why so many of our people lean towards useless things?

      Break dancing can be part of physical education curriculum. They’re staying active and having fun by doing so. I see nothing but positive in this.

      Break dancing itself is not bad, but it’s what ghetto people do. If you’re going to hang with a bunch of break dancers, they are most likely ghetto people who are not good influences. And while Khmer kids are break dancing…what you think all the Eastern Asians and South Asians are doing? Those kids are studying and preparing for jobs in demand and for success.

      I know some breakers who are extremely successful, but for most of us, we’re limited by our time and ability. You want to waste it practicing windmills or try to be competitive in the world and succeed?

      Like I said, it can be part of a physical education curriculum. Just because you don’t find it useful, doesn’t mean that it isn’t useful to other people.

      What do you do to keep active? Don’t tell me you don’t do anything…maybe you need to go join an aerobic dancing or belly dancing class 😛 They offered it at my college as part of or physical ed requirement lol.

      I’m not arguing against physical activities. I’m arguing against the type of physical activity and the crowd that it attracts. Aerobics and belly dancing is more physical and really requires little brain power…and you’re doing it around other college students. That’s a positive thing! Break dancing requires so much physical and mental effort and most of the people who do it are ghetto. That’s why more successful people don’t do it. Somethings like football require much more effort, but it’s supported by schools and communities. You can go pro, become a teacher, or whatever…get a degree. You almost get nothing from break dancing. What are these deportees teaching young Khmer kids that will make them competitive in the world? Nothing! They’re teaching these kids the things they learned before they got arrested.

      It’s better for kids to learn something that in 10-20 years, they can use or add to their success.

      Your argument is weak. So they shouldn’t do break dancing because YOU think it is ghetto. Break dancing IS a form of dancing. The same thing with aerobics and belly dancing, it once derived somewhere. Regardless, it is a form of physical activity. If they are benefiting from it, then great!

      So explain to me how are Khmer kids going to compete against other kids then? One group put so much energy and time into break dancing and hanging with ghetto people. The other group spend time on academic and learning from successful people.

      Explain to me how Khmer kids can compete economically?

      To me, I think you’re either in denial that our people are at a disadvantage economically, or that you’re ignoring the economical aspect and too focused on the physical activity part.

      There’s this park that are full of ghetto guys in the community. Some mothers are against their daughters hanging there..while others like you think it’s a good idea for their daughters to go there because it’s good physical activity.
