Are you chin or Burmese?

We live in an area where there has been a lot of Chin refugees over the last few years. I don't know really anything about their culture and feel embarrassed that I don't. Anyone know anything about the culture? I'd love to educate myself.

Maybe she wanted to get responses from actual people, not a search engine.

Lol it's rude to expect anyone to go over every aspect of their culture online, when the information already exists, and she could ask a real life person the right way.

How about you have a conversation with one of your new neighbors instead. Nothing to be embarrassed about. There are a lot of different cultures around the world and nobody is expected to know everything. People love to talk about themselves and make new friends. Go and meet them.

Yes but I'm sure they have it worse being in a foreign place. Small steps, say hello.

It's rude when you go about it the wrong way. Get some therapy to overcome your anxiety and stop using it as an excuse.
