Why are we still using racist and meaningless terms like Asia/Asian and Europe/European?

The usual colorism exists. I think everyone knows this so I wouldn’t elaborate. Certain countries also stand out when it comes to racism. Korea is stereotyped as being among the most racist Asian countries. It is a popular stereotype among Asians that Koreans are rude and dislike other Asians. Of course this doesn’t mean that all Koreans are that way, but a significant number are like that compared to other Asian countries which cause that stereotype to happen. So why are Koreans that way? Being a first world, homogeneous country does contribute to that a lot, but Japan is a first world, homogeneous country too yet Japanese people are stereotyped as humble and polite. Most Asians have praises for Japan even though Japan had a really bad history with many Asian countries. It is the opposite with Korea. Many Asians do not have a good opinion of Korea after their visit despite Korea not having a bad history with their countries. I think another reason for significant racism in Korea is also due to their over competitive society which leads to people being highly judgemental of each other. In Korea, people have to get plastic surgery just to get a regular job. If people have been trained to be so judgemental about others’ appearance, it’s only natural to judge others whose looks don’t fit the mold such as those who are of different races. I’ve been to Japan and many South East Asian countries and I can say that most of the people are really pleasant and I never felt like anyone looked down on me. In Korea, many people gave me arrogant stares which I know is due to my race because I could just be making my way downtown, walking fast, and bitchy faces found. Rude behaviors are also common, like servers would be non-smiling and shouting sometimes. Bumping into people without making an effort to avoid and apologize is also a common phenomenon in Korea, but that would just be rude behavior instead of racism. However, I would say that racism by East Asians is rarely violent. T may be racist but t would not physically harm you. It’s more like some telepathy hatred going on. I guess that’s the good side of it. Shit would never really hit the fan nowadays I guess. I know some Koreans are in denial or unaware about the rampant racism by their countrymen. But stereotypes exist if something happens much more than the average level. Why is the stereotype of rude and hating other Asians strongly associated with Koreans and not Japanese, Thai, Vietnamese, etc? In the past, Japanese were stereotyped as cruel and insane (no shit, just read up on what t did). But the current Japanese are stereotyped as polite, humble, well-mannered etc. Moral of the story? The only way to beat a stereotype is to stop being the stereotype. Silencing others is not the way because the truth lingers even when people keep quiet. I’m sorry, but I hope more Koreans are aware of this and hopefully Korea will improve on this.

A less formal example would be, all Germans are murderers. A more formal example would be, all people of German descent are of German descent, so it makes no sense to call them Germans. This may look like the “theoretical” argument, but even if it is not, the implications are more serious. Here is a statement that I found in a text about how to understand “Asian men.” “A white, Jewish, Asian, or Christian man and his Asian wife are not equivalent. What makes these relationships so attractive is that their members are both physically attractive and sexually available. When a man and a woman want to marry, there is no real difference in quality between one group of men and another. In some groups, however...the members of these groups differ in something of which we're all aware: they are all white, Jew, or Christian.” (Note: This is an.
