    IF there is ever an Achilles’ heel for Asian people, it’s gotta be Gambling. The reason being, is that Asian people have this attitude that they are smarter than the average bear. (and i’m not talking about Yogi!) Asian people may have the capibility to earn degrees and become doctors and shi+ but when it comes to gambling, our IQ drop lower than the cars their children drive.

    If you ever want to destroy an asian community, just put a casino within driving distance. I’m sure you will see family reunions there. People shouting at each other come free of charge. Just look at Long Beach, alll you hear is Cystal Park, Hawaiian Gardens, and Bicycle Club. No, these our not National parks or excercise facilities, it’s a place where people donate their hard earned money to strangers that deal cards for a living. Who says there is no unity in the community? Just built a casino, they will come.

    My apologies if might strike a cord with some of you, but reality is a bitch and truth is the pimp. So learn now, the house always win… and NEVER trust a gambler!

    it is one of the worst ADDICTION i have ever seen. yeah what u said is true. no matter where u live, if u ask an asian where a casino is at, they’ll bound to know, sad isn’t it? but do u know what i find to be strange? some children who have parents that are gamblers DO NOT actually follow in this sickening habit. they can see what it does to their parents is far more worst then any disease, so they just basically find it to be REPULSIVE.

    once a person has become addicted to gambling they have just sold their soul to the DEVIL :( nothing matters to them no more, not their friends, their relatives, not even their own family

    blunt, your research was well written. I can’t say it any better.

    If only we can put Khmer people through education and help them break from the bondage of the addiction. But it’s an issue of face and Khmer people despite knowing and even accepting that it’s a problem will never seek help. It’s a disgrace to accept that one possesses a negative quality, even if it threatens the livelihood of the family.

    Additionally, adults don’t like to be “told” or even be educated or just be shown a better way of things by younger Cambodian. However, I wonder if another race, say, a white person comes and offer “assistant” on improving or breaking the habit, will an adult Khmer accept it more easily? even if the white person is younger. I think so. Change is hard, especially the mind.

    i dont think race would have much influence. it depends on the addicted person whether or not he/she wants to get help.

    howdy blunt,

    add this to your research paper.
    tell your instructor you got the quote from miniME. :P

    gamblers are people that bad at math.
    you can also paraphrase as, “gambling is tax for people who are bad at math.”

    if you don’t believe me, go up to any gambler.
    ask a simple probability question.

    blunt,

    i forgot to mention something.
    what you said probably true.
    however, consider the history of casino in the U.S.

    do you think Las Vegas was built because of Asian comm?
    do you think Asian has billion of dollars to loose?
    Las Vegas, such as Venetian, just one hotel/casino alone make over $2 billion transactions per month!!!
    do you think Asian comm. has this type of money?

    the truth is gamblers are simply people who are bad at math. :-)
    believe it or not, rich people sometimes spend over $100 million on gambling but you know what?
    it is tax write-off as entertainment and business expense. :-)
    so, it is fun game for the rich which they will get it back at the end of the year.

    Hey it’s making all them native americans rich!!!! Maybe we should form our own cambodian tribe and open up a casino in the middle of nowhere too. Anyhow I think that people who enjoy gambling are pathetic and I feel sorry for them. And those that think that they can make a living off gambling are even more pathetic, even though I have yet to meet a person that has made money of gambling.
