    Ik zou het niet weten maar iedereen start naar iedereen op een rare manier. Misschien is het omdat ze je niet goed kennen (als in, ze hebben je nog nooit gezien) of ze vinden het vaag dat je niet echt nederlandse vrienden heb en dus niet echt met anderen omgaat. Zoiets misschien?

    Being Dutch I don't think Dutch look weird at Asians, at least that is not what my impression is walking down the streets in Netherlands. If you are realy short that can maybe attract some attention. But it doesn't have to be negative.

    Walking as Dutchmen through streets of Japan certainly attracts some attention.

    I had an Asian guy in my class in Netherlands, I did not get the impression that when we went out in the city he was seen or treated differently. As long as you speak Dutch and be open and straight forward. You need to take the effort to learn the language. Many foreigners in Netherlands tend to not learn Dutch and stick to English, but that will be a problem if you really want to be part of society.

    If you don't take the effort to learn the language you will be considered a foreigner what ever race you are.

    "What do all 24 million Dutch unifiiedly think about the 4.5 billions Asians (2 billion of whom are East Asian)"? Perhaps you should address your question to "the Dutch Council That Makes EVERYONE in the Netherlands Think The Same Way".

    I'm Dutch and I don't think there's anything wrong with Asians :P

    They're people, The Netherlands is inhabited with all kinds of people, I'm fine with it
