We Armenians are a smart race and have contributed to the world; we have many great doctors, actors, sport players (soccer and boxing being prominent), musicians (composers, instrumentalists, conductors, singers), writers, engineers, and I think most of all, inventors.

And also, of course, you cannot have the definition of an Armenian without mention of our rich culture; with the delicious food, deeply culturally rooted music, unique language and alphabet, and even the dancing.

We aren't all intelligent, passionate, powerful, obnoxious, loud, ugly, or anything else simply because we are Armenian. We're human beings like you or me, there's good and bad ones just like in every ethnicity. So before you bash on Armenians, please learn something about our past and about our culture.

I actually did mention the food.(:

Also those people who won't listen to you are just ignorant low lives who like to stereotype other countries for no reason.
Ignorance is bliss.

This is my second post on the Glendale forum pages here and I just read about all the misconceptions You all have about any race. The main concept to realize here is the following. ALL RACES have bad apples and or attitude and etc. etc. The reason you see this more centralizing on Armenians in Glendale, Hollywood and Pasadena is because we are the majority.
Now I do agree with everyone about the driving being out of control but that’s a testament of the Police not being able to control it not the drivers or the Armenian community leaders ( Do we have gang shootings here or constant robberies ? NO, why because the Police are occupied with that aspect of safety).
I have been a resident of Glendale since 1984 (and Hollywood before that since 1977) Have experienced how racist Glendale was, is and always will be (when I first moved here there was "Swastika's" for God sakes on the light poles down Brand avenue and I might still find some up in Montrose, but we lived through it and now have proven to all how hard working and good Armenian-Americans we are (just as most of you who are Non Armenians on here have done).
Let me stop explaining why we are better and point out why Armenians are BAD. There was a reason why I moved to Glendale (south end now finally live in between the "White People" on the north end because I also want to separate myself from the bad apples of my community since I consider myself a White-Armenian-American now) back in 1984 and that was to establish my business here vs. Hollywood because I saw the fall of the Soviet Union in the Reagan days and understood how Soviet-Armenians will be migrating here making it very bad for the rest of us,(you need to understand the difference between Armenians from different backgrounds just as any other race that has scattered all over the world, and the only comparison here would be Jews since no other race is as scattered, maybe Spanish people come in a close third), since most of the Armenians from the Soviet block have grown up in an atmosphere where you take advantage of the system the government has put in place since they only hand you maybe a small percentage of what you need to survive and expect you to figure out how to manage for yourself to get the rest by using the system to provide it to you so you become dependent on the SYSTEM… unfortunately the initial wave figured the system out here (since they were the bad apples that got thrown out of the “Homeland”, per say) and started to teach and set up for the new ones coming over before they actually showed up here. As for their new generation they are out of control and dependent on the government to provide for them, A Government that has no way of cheking upon itself how to put an end to fraud, SO if they are taking advantage of the system, so be it, and I don’t think they have to explain themselves to me or you, but if we have a problem with them then let’s get our government to do something about it, oops …. But I see our government adopting the mentality of “Big brother will provide” so life as you and me know it in the “American System” has started to deteriorate.. and seems like we are taking out on the Armenians...so if you are dis-satisfied you should move to the Valley..

LOL the valley. That's where I'm at right now, and it's even shittier here than it is in LA. There's more racism towards Armenians here percentage-wise than in LA (mostly skaters and gangbanging Mexicans). I moved here in 2001 from Glendale and Fresno is rapidly growing in population. 10 years ago, it was a town. Now, it's a city with the population of over a half mil, and it'll keep growing, which actually doesn't benefit the city because there's more jobless people here than there ever was before. I've been to LA countless times since moving to Fresno, mostly Van Nuys.

The Armenian Diaspora, to me, might be the main cause of our downfall as a people. We're not united as a whole, just separated. We have Armenians in Australia, Argentina, Brazil, Costa Rica, Lebanon, Russia, Indonesia, France, the UK, Italy, Greece, Bulgaria, Serbia, Sweden, etc. It's a fucking mess.

I hear you there, but I really don’t think we would know how to live together, I asked an Armenian politician the other day including the Armenian ambassador... "What's next after the US recognizes the Genocide" and no one had a plan.... if we were good planners we would let more of these boards shut down vs. having to write in them...you don't see a lot of people complaining about the Jewish race that’s because they are silent and plan more than do ( except when the S*** hits the fan like Madoff")... So first let’s try to be planners instead of workers then we can see what to do to stop this negative view of the Armenian Race.... I am really ashamed of it but not for the lack of trying to make it right...

Dear God, you're pathetic. A "race" is like the white or black race, not "omg i hate the hispanic race"...other than that, I can only agree with you on the coffee. Please find something productive to do in your life. Thanks.

First of all we are ALL the Human Race. Armenians are NOT a race we are an ethnic group. A group of people that pre-dates Christ but was the first nation to accept Christianity in 301 AD. We were the first Christian Crusaders so new young countries like America could have the freedom and democracy as set forth by the early Byzantiums, Clicians, etc., As far as not contributing anything to America. Consider the inventions of the 1 arm faucet, MRI (Dr. Imadian). Tennis great Andre Agassi, Cher, Garry Kasparov, Andrea Martin, Michael Vartan, Charles Aznavour, et al The inventions list is long but the medical contributions is fantastic. As a whole the Armenians have much less issues with the law than any other ethnic group. When there are gangs or a killing it embarasses us. But it does happen as it happened in Irish, Mexican, Asian, Jewish, Italian, Russian, etc., gangs. But don't judge the whole ethnic group because of a few idiots.

We are not a "race" dear we are an Ethnic group and one of the oldest documented people on earth. I think you have issues buddy, sounds like a lot of anger for nothing. Armenians are very decent human people, who gave much for the relief in Darfur and Haiti, because it is the right thing to help others who suffer. I am sorry you have so much hate in your heart.

You didn't get your point across if the only correct statement you said was us having horrible coffee. I sincerely agree to that, but everything else you said is just useless jargon.
You're an oral surgeon? Yeah...and I'm an NBA player. I play for the NY Knicks...lol

i dont care if you believe me or not, but in my 3 offices in burbank, studio city and pasadena, i always make sure to over charge my armenian patients, and i do lower quality work so they have to come back sooner and spend more money. payback for all the scams they pull. and btw im not white, my family came here as immigrants to, the only difference is that they actually worked hard to acheive everything and give me a better life. obviously not all armenians are crooked, but there are so many who are, that i cant trust you people any more

We don't eat kebab, the Iranians do...plus, without us, Glendale would still be a damn farm. We turned it into a city, don't be jealous simply because YOU LAZY PEOPLE don't work and live off welfare.
