I am wondering why and how people are racist against Asians, esp the Chinese.

Mostly through ignorance or not having any knowledge about their culture. Most American only know about China from what they have seen on TV.
As far as Japanese, the stereotyping from WW2 still lingers even though Japan is an ally of the US.
I have more respect for both those cultures now than I do for my own. (US)
Education does wonders.

Is 'racist' such a big deal for any Asian people living and working in the west?  I don't know since I won't actually think that should be such an enormously an unevitable deal although I'm here in China.  There are two sensible things to do if you are really struggling there - one, work really hard to win equal rights as the rest of other people or leave for better places like home country.

It'll be reasonable not to call people 'racists' from other cultures or countries.  I would think one's own perceptions to values in guest country does matter too.  Discriminations could be in western countries, Asian countries, towards foreigners or among native people sometimes.  If you are not happy with other people's attitude or way of doing things, just tell them directly for corrections or leave for own good.

Just tease back, isn't it too easy?  Lacking of own confidence or enthusiasm will push people to their edges, isn't it?
