Kind of hard to foster western empathy when many Cambodians still think of dogs as haut cuisine. You guys are the hillbillies of Asia, you breed like rabbits, and as long as you cling to your uncivilized ways, nobody is going to pay much attention to you.
The difference between you folks and the Jews is the Jews find ways to provide value to the world. Most Cambodians really don't, so far.
Harsh, but that's just the way it is.
Your best bet is to assimilate into this country, and leave your heritage behind. The more successful you become here, the more Cambodia will seem pointless to you-because it essentially is. You came here to get away from Cambodia. It's time to wash that country right out of your head.
Rent Ken Burns' "The Civil War," and start learning about your country. Would you have been a yankee or a rebel?
I'm expecting an essay.
