    why do so many americans still think cambodia is in africa?

    anyways to me it seems most mericans seem to associate cambodia mostly with ’01 tomb raider temple though very few know its name.

    perhaps also..

    jolie’s adopted son maddox

    nixon bombings

    pol pot / killing fields

    tuk doh

    kroper tom

    anything else?

    Some third world country that Angelina Jolie shot a movie in.

    Most Americans aren’t that geography smart anyway, so they would strain to pick Cambodia out on the map.

    Most people know nothing about Cambodia.

    The older and more educated ones might know about the Vietnam war and Cambodia’s involvement.

    For others, it’s very limited. Like they might go to school or work with a Khmer.

    The ones who are around more Khmers I think have a more negative point of view of Khmers. I had a black friend who worked at fast food and he tell me that most of the Khmers that come in are ghetto. You’ll hear about people talk about how Khmer people drive nice cars but on welfare. You can’t blame them…Khmer people in general don’t excel in anything as a people. The only thing you see Khmer people really doing on a large scale together is having babies.

      I did a quick read and hair use to come from India and China, but I think they said it was coming from animals or people in China were being forced to sell hair. So people went to Cambodia where a lot of poor Khmer girls had nothing to do but sell their hair.

      ^US is the biggest human hair ‘exporter’ world over:

      Top Human Hair Exporters by Country

      yet even domestically, jews & afroamericans are the biggest buyers.

      notice also that the american supplier admits that with most of the hair she supplies, she has no idea where it comes from!

      wonder where US is getting all that human hair to peddle internationally for mad profits?

    What are we going to become though? We know what people think of us, from what they see on tv, news, and everyday interactions…..but what do we want to be known for? What do we want to become? And how do we get there?

      Helping people should not be about profits. However, I would understand it if you mean that helping Khmer people usually have little or no results. For example, I tried to be a role model to a Khmer kid, teach him learning tricks, guide him towards college, etc. In the end, he chose to hang with drug dealers. The average Khmer boy likes to imitate black people, thugs, gangstas, hip hop culture, etc. America is one of the most opportunistic countries on earth, but average Khmer person don’t see that. I still help Khmer people, but I never expect results. The only thing I expect generations from now is for Khmer people to be like Blacks and Latinos…keep multiplying but always at the bottom of the ladder.-Mr. Children

      ^ well said. i’ve plastered quotes elsewhere on kL showing clandestine government is behind the destabilization of countries overseas and nationalities here in America. it’s all about divide and conquer! gov even boasted in official documents that their KR operation’s experiments in persuading ‘young khmer refugee men’ to ‘genocide their own people’ were a ‘success’! those khmer refugees now here in America who sell drugs to their own youth, raped robbed or murdered their own people, are being ‘rewarded’ by the global penal colony system via being deported back to Cambodia in droves to continue the destabilization process for nwo. hello, they are the new ‘KR’ in the making. plans in writing were already shared: they plan to continue the genocide in that region and we even saw the next phase roll out just a couple days in sri lanka; buddhists are being instigated by nwo to be the next ‘face’ of terror so as to justify the american war machine spreading the war on mideast into southeast asia – including cambodia. any doubts, just look at a freaking map as to where the us is bombing and its direction.

      that is the 64 million dollar question. What do khmers in america want to be known for? the answer is observably simple:

      – fancy cars

      – having lots of kids with hoes

      ^ why? apparently that ‘kills 2 birds with just 1 stone’ by putting themselves as a group on ‘equal footing’ with what used to be rivals – the latinos – and with their biggest allies – the blacks – in America. it’s no secret latinos and black are most famous in both pop culture, and prisons! that is unfortunately what the current generation looks up to most. apparently the facade of success is obtained by financing fancy cars as a symbol of success, and siring lots of kids with hoes a validation of virility, in America.

      it’s not their fault, though. this is nwo’s plan. not just for khmer-americans. but the whole darn world!

    I don’t know how others in America view Cambodia.  For the most part, Cambodia is one of over 200 nations in the world.  Americans barely know their own backyard, they can’t be expected to know anything about Cambodia.  Americans have American-interests in mind.  Cambodia is just a far off, distant land, known for temples and cheap sex.

    I’d like to do more for my local Cambodian community, but it doesn’t make sense to cater solely to the Khmer population.  It’s just not profitable.

      It’s funny you say that because a lot of these non-profit organization make big bucks for the owners of the organization.  Don’t be deceived by the non-profit classification.  We still live in a capitalistic society and capital (money) is king.  If you don’t got the capital, you ain’t got the resources to fund whatever movement you’re trying to pull off.

      I agree with you …. charities are businesses, as well as religion, colleges, etc. We don’t want to see it that way, but it is. i’m not saying that money is not important. I’m not arguing that. However, my point is that for individuals, you should help people to help them..not because of profits. For example, this old Khmer lady needed help with something…I didn’t think “will I make money, is it more profitable to put my time and efforts elsewhere?” It wasn’t about that, I just helped her. Every paycheck, I give a portion of my money to help our poorer people. I give out money because I know money is important. I don’t benefit from that…I don’t profit from that. I do it to help people.
