    Guys this is my first post, since I just found this forum. I've been living in Taiwan since last april, and as an african-american it certainly was a bizarre experience. I'm originally from Detroit, MI, and had the opportunity to teach some english abroad. Long story short my being here is very common to most of you. That said, I have to say I'm shocked at the lack of diversity in Taiwan. It's almost all asians, a few whites and hardly any blacks. It's hard for me to see how this little island is going to progress if it keeps this up. I'm sure you all know the emotional outbursts that are a dime a dozen here, but with my skin color being so visible it seems to have an exaggerated effect whenever something like this happens to me. I wish the local government here has the courage and foresight to do more to include and welcome more diversity. I don't get how a country that's international allies are all islands filled with black people makes so little effort to understand/accommodate them. It's very frustrating, and sometimes I'm tired of being suffocated by all the Taiwanese people. Anyway, just my first post and brief summary of my feelings. What do you guys think?

    I think since this guy has grown up in and lived in the US, where many people touting the word 'diversity' usually mean 'more even distribution of blacks and whites' in a country with so many races, he can't understand how a country can't be like America without taking much into account (maybe not that many blacks want to go to Taiwan to work for whatever reason, I don't know). Its like going to Japan and being surprised that 99% of the population is Japanese.

    He isn't complaining about discrimination. . He is saying like I went to Germany and I am surprised there are so many Germans. ..? What logic does that make?

    Western countries are the most 'diverse' in the world then.


    This only makes sense once you realise that 'diversity' means more black people. People do not care if there are more jews or more polish people, not at all.

    I'm sure you're getting Taiwan mixed up with another country as I don't think you're choosing to be this dense on purpose.

    America was founded on diversity and immigration and yet the multicultural brigade are the first to attack it. It's nice to see someone trying to export American values elsewhere...

    I do, can't remember the last time I dated a pure English bird, love my Irish and Polish friends, the original meaning of diversity definitely needs to make a comeback.

    oh sheeet, thanks for red pill brah. Just discovered Taiwan's GDP per capita is 76% of the UK's. I guess it's not buttf*** poverty.

    But my point still stands, bar a few exceptions like Taiwan, most of the world is backward and poverty relative to the West.
