I don't think Asians hate black people. It's just that stupid stereotype of Korean convenience store owners being suspicious of black customers like in the movies. Another stereotype is that Arabs are fanatic gun wielding extremists.

Where in the world did you get that idea?

If I have to answer your question, I only harbour a strong dislike for specific people who fails to cooperate or have harmful intent.

The word "Chink" here is really racist to an Asian person. So yeah, HaroFreak's got a point. Say that word to an Asian in front of their face and you're basically fucked. :/

I like the sound of "tosser" more. "Chink" sounds so... clumsy and retarded.
And besides... tosser is more versatile :P

It IS hate, resentment too. At least it is here in AnShan and the north of China.
This is mostly because of steryotism. Examples being, black men have AIDS, they are naturally inferior (much the same way the Japanese in the past thought of the Chinese), they are here to have sex (true - if male). They lie about their country of origin - they say they are from native countries but are really from Africa (true). The last point is they come here to escape something in Africa, the past persecution.
That's the facts. Some of the people here (black and white) can teach, others can't. Some I don't like. Others I do. They are normal for me.

I would like to point out that is the idea for only some of the Chinese population, many like black people. Certinally not all. But when these people are told to say BY CHINESE that they are from native English speaking countries... you know something is wrong.

I never even heard of the word "Tosser" being used where I'm at. The people where I'm at use "chink" since it's a common racist comment about asian. I guess all the people who say the C word are retarded then. XD

I don't believe that is true. These perceptions are not fostered in Chinese culture, schools or University, such perceptions must be coming from a more Western background if they are true. The simple fact is that there are not many people of white, black or other backgrounds in China outside Shanghai, Guangzhou, Beijing etc, as such they are objects of interest when seen. The typical Chinese family reaction of 'You can't marry a non-Chinese' is the same whether that person is black, white or what-ever. It is not a particular racial background of people, it's just a mild form of Xenophobia. Totally understandable in the context of numerous Invasions from both the East (japan) and the West at multiple points in history.

Nothing is wrong, many African countries do speak English from birth. Examples include South Africa, Cameroon, Ghana, Kenya, Niger, etc. English is not a 'native' language in any real sense around the world. It is a global language.

If that is true I have no idea where or how it got brought to here - in terms of media, or other things. This is just racism. And it is common for Chinese people to be 'this'. It isn't taught in the school or the education system. But it is from the parents. And that is a fact. Where the parents get it from (if not for their own reasons) is beyond me.

The simple fact is that there are not many people of white, black or other backgrounds in China outside Shanghai, Guangzhou, Beijing etc, as such they are objects of interest when seen.

There is truth in this - but what I am seeing here is a targeting of the black people. The people who are fair skinned have a form of 'superiority' of perception. We are from 'rich' countries and therefore are rich ourselves.

It is not a particular racial background of people, it's just a mild form of Xenophobia. Totally understandable in the context of numerous Invasions from both the East (japan) and the West at multiple points in history.

I wasn't talking about marriage, but maybe we can later. I was talking about walking down the street. It is xenophobia.
But as an example of this; I was in a restuarant as I normally go on fridays to get lunch with a man called David. David is from Nigeria, and is of course - black. In this resturant a xenophonbic girl was ordering at the counter too. She turned and saw David (who was standing there for awhile) and she hurried away.
David felt uncomfortable at this and told me that we should go. On the way out there was a Chinese man and he just kept staring.

Not on this ocassion but sometimes it spills to glares and words.

I was continuosly stared at today while eating BBQ by a man, I was in a good mood so I just waved after the 3rd minute.

Nothing is wrong, many African countries do speak English from birth. Examples include South Africa, Cameroon, Ghana, Kenya, Niger, etc. English is not a 'native' language in any real sense around the world. It is a global language.

While your argument is true here. That is not the opinion of the people (parents) here in north China. And those are the ones that pay for the classes. And my opinion is most of these people who have English as a second language are not really up to standard to teach above primary school.
And after speaking to most of these people - they are here for the wrong reasons (any skin colour).

That said I just managed to get a new contract to work here for another year :D
It was hard to find something in the same city but I got it!
I am very happy about this. As I really DO like it here. Despite what you may read in the posts.

I meant what I said. Some people feel that way :(
But anyways lets move on. Talking about this doesn't do anything really productive.
Some countries in Asia such as China, Thailand, the Philippines and Vietnam have a reputation of inferior quality goods, this is one they are trying to change. Do you think the rest of the world is still believes that "Made In China" (example) is the same as a 'crappy' product that will break?

I think it depends on the product. If it's something like a small toy or keychain then people will pass by it easier than a bigger product such as a car. Unless if the item breaks, then I don't see why someone would think that; and besides, Japan is doing well in making really good cars such as Honda and Toyota. Little toys may be made with the "Made in __" label, but it's the bigger products that carry asian countries quality reputations. And anyone with a Honda will know that it truely is good quality ;)

Not at all. I am myself regardless of my origin.

I don't feel bad about being able to make more western dishes than asian dishes either, though I blame my university location of choice for that limitation.

I don't feel inferior, but I do get uncomfortable feelings from the others around me, like I am a kind of freak (worst case) or someone to be wary of. It was worst at the beginning then you get used to it. But sometimes there is a guy (or woman) and they give a different bad feeling.

I have, once. Not a common style here. I have a camera in my phone. If I see a guy/girl with it I will take a photo.

But more important things (for me);
Some terrible news on this front.

China has finally blocked NG. I can still post because I am using a proxy. I can't deposit :'( because I cannot vote either; also meaning I cannot Blam/Protect.
Oh yes, the worst thing - I cannot even see submissions anymore as the proxy's will not show the "Watch this movie"/"Play this game" as a link. only as text.
In fact the only thing I can really do is post now. Maybe the audio forum too... I have to check..

I do not know how this will affect my attendance at this club. I don't think it will really change much. But now summer is here I will miss out completely on all the gains I could have made in the portal...

Very pissed off. Please don't PM me. I won't be able to read them (because I cannot access my inbox). NGlog still works. Just www.newgrounds.com is blocked.

Not an ISP thing, all ISP's are bound by China's censorship laws.
*shakes fist angrily at the Chinese government*
I was seriously panicked. Then I started to look around for a decent proxy or proxy program.
I have one, that lets me do everything normally, but it tends to be slow. I will keep looking for a better one... Many countries are beginning to censor some material. Including Australia. It seems to be getting more popular as it gets easier to block things online.

When is it okay to censor something online? Or should ALL information be available BUT holding it illegal- (eg child porn).
