    I'm asian and I can tell SOME do. Esp. the older generation that migrated to this country seem to have this ridiculous view :/
    Would that be because their interactions with white people are limited?

    Maybe these Asians should accept the society they live in.

    Why expect conservative behaviour in a liberal and non-conservative society?

    Having an opinion is ridiculous? India is a conservative society, what more can be expected?

    Most definitely. Its just stereotypes they've picked up from the media.

    I guess I was quite naive, didn't think that a lot of these people look down upon my culture. Why would they chose to live here then? Doesn't bode well for assimilation.

    I see just as many Indian/Pakistani chavs as English chavs. As for shallow materialism, I would say Indians/Pakis are far worse than the English.

    I have a differing opinion, I don't like theirs, it doesnt mean I think their opinion is 'inferior'.
