Well now that's just racist.
There are a lot of things that white people say to Asian people without realizing just how idiotic they sound, like asking Asian friends where they're really from or telling them you're a big fan of Asian cuisine. Luckily, this video from BuzzFeed makes it pretty clear exactly why that stuff sounds—at the very least—stupid, and at worst, a little bit racist.
The lesson here is clear: when interacting with people from another ethnic background, just be cool, man.
