As a Vietnamese citizen, I think my answer really depends on their ideologies and behaviors. But as far as I know, not many Vietnamese American care about my country anymore so I’ve never had any problem with them. Yeah and there are also few people who still keep the hate after Vietnam War - the war against America in 1975 where they or their parents supported the American to fight us. They don’t believe in the Communist Party and consider it ruined their life, so as yet they don’t like us who already followed the current government. But if they stop at hating us, that’s okay because it is very difficult to change their ideologies and erase their sorrow past (I know many of them lost their home, lost their relatives when they run away from Vietnam to go to America). But more terribly, there are also a couple of Vietnamese American they want to attempt a coup, they keep spread “false” information, insult our propaganda and I personally can’t take it. We are fine, and they are fine in America, so please stay there and don’t do anything that makes Vietnam state become troubled. Respect us and we will do the same to you. Peace life for both sides.

There are almost 100 million people in Vietnam and quite a few Vietnamese Americans, so you aren’t going to find a consensus. Heck certain people in Vietnam hate each other even more than any overseas group.

Personally I think of Vietnamese Americans as my family, complete strangers and everything in between depending on who the person is. Yes I have extended family over there, and being on different sides of the war never made us anything less than family.

So in conclusion I consider Vietnamese Americans as just another group of Vietnamese from another place. The exception is if a person can’t speak Vietnamese, then I consider them just an American and there is nothing wrong with that - I have met a lot of wonderful people from the US whatever their origin!

In the 1980–90’s, people in Vietnam (mostly southern) heavily depended on Vietnamese Americans for economic assistance and recently, more normalized to strictly family relations, long-distance friendships, business partnerships and in some instances care, trusted connection for their children’s pursuit of higher education…. Of course, legacies of Vietnam war left a political divide - characterized Vietnamese Americans from other overseas Vietnamese that soon, time and continued domestic progresses will completely heal:

What do Vietnamese citizen think about Vietnamese American ?

All Vietnamese American want to overthrow the current regime. It’s will and always be their ultimately goal. Who is going to lead the country or what to do next after bringing down the communist party , they have no idea . As long as the “commie” down, their mission is completed .

All Vietnamese American want Vietnam to respond more aggressively to China. They want Vietnam to attack the Paracel Islands (which is controlled by China since 1974) and take it back .Little did they know that when thing goes wrong, they(oversea Vietnamese) just buy the air ticket and evacuate their family out of Vietnam while the one who suffer the most is always the ordinary Vietnamese .

Vietnamese American call the Vietnamese who have different point of view with them is uneducated and brainwashed by commie propaganda .

The Vietnamese American with their big ego, their one- sided view point and wartime judgmental mentality are among the biggest obstacles to find the common voice between them and the Vietnamese living in Vietnam.

As an American that owns a business that serves many Vietnamese and Vietnamese customers I think I can add something here. I have customers that are both recent immigrants and long term residents here in the USA. I also travel to Vietnam every year for several months.

My customers that are Vietnamese love Vietnam. The recent immigrants travel back home often. They are certainly emotionally connected to Vietnam. The first generation Vietnamese Americans live western lives but most speak the language and maintain cultural ties. Here in New England we have “ Boat People” that came in the 80’s , and recent immigrants. Dorchester Mass. and adjacent communities have thriving ethnic markets, restaurants and other Vietnamese owned businesses.

The Vietnamese Americans have prospered in business and education. They dominate in nail salons and own many restaurants for Pho and Bahn Mi. The west coast has huge communities of Vietnamese that work in IT after starting as assemblers for Atari and other tech businesses.

To say they are ambivalent about America due to the war is not fair. To speak of the atrocities of war as unilateral is unreasonable too. The Viet Cong played a huge role in the rape, killing and torture of the Viet people. The French and the Japanese were not benevolent occupiers either.

Moving on

The Vietnamese people like the Cambodian people are not ruled by the past. The war is not forgotten but it is not a source or anger or resentment for most people.

The Viet people like Americans. They treat me warmly and sincerely both at my store and when I travel there. To say that the Vietnamese hate the communist government is a minority opinion. The government there does not restrict people or life to a huge degree, I am certain that insiders curry favor with officials but that is universal . Favoritism and cronyism exist in every political system.

Many Vietnamese people would like to immigrate here because there is more economic opportunity. I think they are seduced by the numbers but there is a trap with western life. Higher incomes often lead to higher levels of consumption and western lifestyles can erode family values. Gambling, alcoholism and excessive spending on status symbols often offset higher income and diminish the likelihood of the prosperity that people dream of. Obesity and diabetes are rising in Vietnamese American communities and in Vietnam’s urban centers.

In Vietnam and Southeast Asia people are happy if their children and elders are healthy. Quality of life there is much better at a much lower income level. Westernization is starting to take it’s toll in Vietnam. American fast food and beverages and sedentary lifestyles in urban centers are leading to obesity and diabetes. Overweight has increased in Vietnam 40% in 6 years there. Gaming is part of the problem but fast food chains and American beverages are hugely responsible. I cycle there and I see a much higher percentage of the use of electric bikes by children this year.

Vietnamese people respect Vietnamese American and Americans that are not consumed by ego or arrogance. If you travel there live simply and go with an open heart and an open mind and you will see the beauty of Vietnam and it’s people

In 1989 I was in Vietnam during the embargo. With a visa and press credentials, I went to the interior with a handler who translated for me and presented me to various People”s Committees (Communists) at various levels from province to commune telling them who I wanted to interview. While I was meeting with two members of the People’s Committee of the province, a young man that they knew came in very excited. His sister who had gone to America at the end of the war was working at the Chase Manhattan Bank and had gotten him a job there. The two Communists were excited for him and insisted that we all must go celebrate. It was a good evening and they were helpful to me but the handler was angry that the Communists were celebrating an educated young Vietnamese man leaving the country when that was the kind of young man that Vietnam needed.

Half of them are a different spieces. I thought as time goes by, the hatred and stuborness will subside, but maybe they won't. I think the Vietnamese American community is very divisive and maybe half of them will remain anti-communist, anti-current Vietnam, sticking to the dead regime of South Vietnam. All right. I think i can consider them to Vietnam as a Quebec to France. A different spieces, different culture, different language. We are departing further and further to two directions. The only problem is Quebecians aren't hostile to France, but the Vietnamese Americans are hostile to Vietnam. They are stuck in nowhere. They don't belong to America. They are at the bottom of that society, quiet in fame and achievement, loud in their own corner.

The other half are Vietnamese.

I am an old Vietnamese, older than the old refugees. My opinion is different than theirs. They left Vietnam running away from the “communists.” So they have been obsessed with “communists.” I have old friends from Cuba. The behave the same way.

I don’t expect and hope they would change their thinking. They will go to their grave with the same “hatred” for the communists, that no longer exist.

The people who live and govern in Vietnam at our time in 2020 are not the ones who fought the USA in 1954–1973..Yes, The old people had good cause and reasons to fight. They did a good fight. But the old refugees are stuck in their old way. They can’t see that VN is no more the same. Just a lot better.

I have a lot of Vietnamese American friends. They are all cool. However, some Vietnamese Americans I saw when traveling US didn’t have a balance right view about Vietnam. Please read more from both sides to have a comprehensive perspective of Vietnam. There are bad things and good things in Vietnam, not all that bad. Information in Vietnam is manipulated, but we know how to overcome and have a right view about real fact, and you, Vietnamese Americans should do the same. Don’t let anyone to manipulate your own view by reading more and more from variety of sources.
