I don't blame the baller 2nd gen all that much (OK, that means I still do, but only a bit) -- I just don't really understand. I mean, a lot of these guys do school / grow up here too, be it elementary, secondary, or college / university. When they are going through all that, certainly they have to have met someone that leaves a (positive) impression on them without having any money involved, right? Especially when I was younger (say, up to some time in university), I've always come across people that impress me one way or another -- be it their wit, their quick thinking, their good manners, their skills in certain / various things, the way they interact / work with people, etc. And then I think about those experiences and see how I can borrow ideas to improve myself. Even when you are a cocky little bastard -- I certainly was one when I was a kid -- sooner or later, you are gonna get your a$$ whooped somehow in some sort of aspect (school, sports, personality, whatever), and you'd want to figure out why, wouldn't you?

Or maybe that is just my thinking.

My understanding with China's one child policy is, back in the day when it was first introduced, the rules are probably quite strict. For the kids that are born in the 90's though, the situation has pretty much shifted to a state where if your family has the money, power, and/or connections, you are going to be able to find ways to get around that 1 child limit. So I would say your remarks are certainly true for the middle class or even upper middle class, but for the ballers that we are talking about here, they wouldn't really be the only child anymore.
Correct me if I'm wrong, I think that that the Chinese government has laws in place which put strict controls on the size of a couple's family. The "one child" policy. The result is that you have many families with have only one child.

This child is the only hope, the future of this family's line of descendants. This only child is very valuable in the eyes of the kids. If the only child is a son, then his importance to the parents increases because he carries on the family's name. These rich parents treat these kids like "little princes" and "little princesses" by buying them almost anything that they want in order to make their child happy.

As a result, these kids become spoiled kids with a sense of entitlement. Their sense of worth is based on what their parents give them, not based on what they do or achieve with their own hard work, skill, or resources. These kids can become insecure also because they do not have that tight family network of siblings to support and care for them. They make friends with other rich kids, who are also spoiled, attention getting whores in order to have a sense of worth.

Your thoughts?

But thats the thing though. Even if they are getting their ass whooped in some way, they'll shrug it off and not learn anything from it because of they don't see it as a major setback. If they fail a class because too busy going out/partying, they'll just pay to go to Alexander College or Coquitlam College for easy credits. If they get their car impounded because of speeding, they'll just pay off the fine. I know this Chinese international student who got his license taken away for driving drunk and hitting a parked car back in China and he was traumatized for a little while. When he felt okay to drive (after a year moving to Van) his parents just mailed him a fake Chinese license so he can buy a car here without going through icbc. If your parents foster a culture where money can solve all problems they'll never ever learn, and they don't need to.

u guys spend 3 pages figuring out why they act like they way they do lol.

young people + power = flashy.

a young kid gets a nice car in HS, what the fuck u expect to happen. LOL.

it's as simple as that. lol.

instead of analysing it the way you guys do, look at it this way:

the bigger the money gets, the human attached to it changes in predictable ways. we could plot it on a bell curve lol.

money is the constant here, the human is the accessory to the money.

the life force of the body (economy), is oxygen (money), and it is carried by the red blood cells (humans). The blood cells change depending on how much oxygen it carries.

blood cells are hungry for oxygen baby. if a cell is deemed unfit, other cells will cannibalize it and redistribute the resources.
nipples neways...wat is with those fuck'n asians! i mean you would think they've never seen a dentist in their life. are dentists really that rare over there in ricey ricey and? looks like they're star trek ferrengi rejects! fuck'n have broken glass for teeth! goddaymn! and the smell....did a rat crawl in there and shit itself then marinate in its own shit as it decayed?ewwwwwwwwww! i swear...if one of those ferrengi asian girls gave head...when u pull the dick out it looks like it went thru a meat grinder! prolly shaved off a few slices of meat! *shudder*
Greebo i t-boned some guy and killed their baby, it was funny
silvia i have a couple asian guy friends that do very well with the ladies. but guess what, they go to the gym, they dont have long hair, they dont wear orange pants, and they dont play counterstrike. its not the ethnicity that the girls dont like, its the style and personality.
450HP Supra I am about to use your eye sockets as a shoe rack for my nuts. ...something about chinks, j-bodys, I can't quite remember as I was drunk and looking for a girl to punch in the clit. Think of it as a digital urinal, and you are the mint, except, instead of actually smelling mint, you smell like mothballs, rotten kimchee and virginity. I'm about to start drinking heavily now and you better be gone before I get back or I swear to god I will break the internet over my knee and use the pieces to beat you in the deformed skull with, cock muffler.
Iceman-19 If your gf cooks and cleans, good, tell the guy to take a fucking hike. If she doesnt, fuck, that joker can have her. Lifes too short to cook your own meals and do your own laundry, thats what women are for!

And, you're gone.

You can have an opinion, but let's not forget the Geneva convention. In other words, don't be an ignorant newbie douche.
