I doubt this story about Ky is true. Perhaps you could provide some evidence?
I also tend to believe most Vietnamese refugees would find your statement
offensive and distorting. They are now part of the Asian American
community in the U.S., and like other Asian Americans have been subjected
to pretty awful stereotypes.
I recall that when Vietnamese refugees first arrived in the U.S. in 1975
some anti-war demonstrators protested and urged them to go back. After
the boat people started fleeing Vietnam in large numbers in the late
1970s, some accused the refugees of being prostitutes, war criminals at
worst, or middle class people at best looking for better economic
Why were they subject to such misleading accusations? Perhaps
because their flight reflected badly on the post-75 regime in Vietnam.
