Not proud: Treating women/girls like dirt...Fortuna tely America, France, Australia and other developed countries have been able to change that primitive mindset little by little...

Proud: Language and Cultural artifacts..

The northern part that is closer to the Chinese boarder, they eat fogs. 

Big market for dog meat in southern China. 

You don't see stray dogs in my country.  Due to poverty, they are stolen to eat or kept as backyard breeders to be sold as chicken meat.

Um that itís ok to marry our first cousin? Not so proud of that.

Good one...I find it idiotic that some Hmong are against non-blood related total strangers who happen to share the same last name hooking up but have no problems with blood-related family members hooking up i.e., "cousins"..... :idiot2:

You find it idiotic because you're ignorant and don't know anything about history or culture. Now back to your alternative facts you go.  ;D

Look who crawls back frothy at the mouth... ;D

I know you don't mind marrying your own flesh and blood but some of us do...

It's as bad as claiming no land in the Bay Area and then I posted *facts* with photos showing new homes and developments going up in the Bay Area to prove you wrong, and then you back pedaled...but you can't shake the narrow minded ignorant view so you keep foaming at the mouth and continue to repeat your cycle of ignorance.. That's how "idiotic" that YAK is...;D

I was just in this SF neighborhood not too long ago and guess what, properties are still going up but I know you can't handle facts....YEP FACTS STILL BEAT IGNORANCE!!!  O0:

Then please explain why it's ok for a Hmong to marry their first cousin just because of different last name and it's not ok to marry someone of the same last name even though they are not related.

Watch him back pedaled... ;D

YAK is as bad as BNM when it comes to back pedal...but then again they are in the same narrow minded ignorant clique...Here are their traits: ignorant, hypocritical, narrow minded, make stuff up when their ignorance are proven wrong with facts, and lack integrity and credibility.

Yup, whether it's showing up late or can't get their sh!t together on time as a host...

I had to tell a couple of hosts about respecting others' time as my reason for leaving... ;D

It's very simple, if a host cannot keep time then just say time is 'open' so guests can come and go when ever...

If it's something minor like a BBQ, picnic, etc.  You know, laidback event where timing isn't a big deal.  Sure you can show up whenever.  But damn.  If it's like a wedding and you are close to the family, show up on time.
I don't have time for folks who just wants to show up whenever.  If you can't be bothered to show up on time to a meaningful event, don't bother showing up at all.  It may not seem meaningful to you, and if it's not, don't show up.  - I especially hate those folks who show up when eating and then leaves afterwards or starts packing up food before/while people are getting food. 

@king, I agree. I don't like those hosts either. Party at noon. doesn't start till  3 hours later. There are times when I can't blame them for starting later.  Sometimes the priest/deacon/reverend or shaman is busy or running late. I guess. but sometimes they are just late.  A cousin was doing jingle bells once.  We were told to be there at noon. I was there at noon. They began jingle bells at 3pm. I left somewhere between 8-9pm and THEY STILL WEREN'T DONE DOING JINGLE BELLS! I asked my parents the next day when they were done.. They said 11:30pm.  -.- Not to be disrespectful but damn, that is a whole day. If I was the immediate family, I would expect to be busy the whole day; chopping meat, then jingle bells or prayers, then eat, then clean up.  But I wasn't the immediate family.

Oh and I got something for you to laugh at.
Over the summer, we had a huge family picnic (the extended family including all the cousins and distant relatives).  Usually we pay to reserve the picnic location.  This year the ones in charge decided to be cheap.  They said "oh, there'll be nobody there, water's too big and cold to swim." I told them it's summer, people will be there regardless.  So they attempted to voluntold me and one other cousin to get there at 7am and hold the "first come first serve" spots until everyone arrives at 10am.  I LAUGHED.  I wasn't going to wake up early to sit there while every sleeps in and shows up at noon like always. So I said no, doesn't matter wtf they say, I wasn't doing it. In the end they just said, okay we'll just get there at 10, should be no one there. (been talking for well over a month). They claimed everything was worked out and good to go.

Night before the picnic. My brother asks if I was going. I said, we'll see. I expect something to go wrong.

Day of the picnic.  It's 11am. I was getting ready to go.  And I get a call.  The 2 or so cousins in charge just got there first, and the place is full.  So they said for me to grab my dad's truck and bring our grill to the park.  HA HA HA.  I wasn't going to do that.   I called my nieces and went to pick  them up to go to Sunsplash instead and while we were at Walmart around 1pm. I see them, they were getting drinks and ice. I guess they didn't get enough or something.

- I'm not a disgruntled cousin. I don't mind helping out. But i'm not going to be voluntold to do something dumb like show up at 7am and sit there for hours on end or come to the rescue cause someone wouldn't listen.

Well let's just state the obvious...

Least proud thing is hmongs can't get along with one another and just want to fight and argue amongst themselves.


Stuff I'm proud of is...

All them dang hotties!!


And...I love our music. ..old and new..

And the language itself. ..I like it when a hmong girl speaks it.

I love our hmong clothes...

And our old hmong family values...

I went through all 15k posts and those 2 quotes I found were the only ones so I guess that would make it "everytime".  Feel free to go through all 15k posts and verify by quoting them all.  You need to quote them all to verifying prove "everytime".   Please verify that Im wrong.
