Interesting how you immediately take the aggrieved posture, and stress the alleged rudeness of Westerners more and more.
I have seen you personally disparage and defame a whole segment of your own population however for the simple act of religious belief. If you want to trade anecdotals ... I think you would be in for a losing contest.
This fascistic racism that you are apparently echoing is growing more explicit in China from all that we Westerners can see. Then you bellicosely accost anyone who happens to notice.
And indictment of your evil government is somehow misidentified as attacks on upon China as a people. If the rudeness of people can be laid as a cultural characteristic, don't assume it is perpetual (except in the case of the French). We need to look to the larger governmental incitements to conflict. E.g.;
How rude was it for the PLA to invade Tibet? How rude for the PLA to invade the Spratley Islands? How rude for the PLA to invade northern India? How rude for the PLA to invade Vietnam? How rude for the PLA to kill 70 million of their own citizens?
And how rude was it for the Chinese Television delegation visiting in San Diego over 9-11-01 to start boisterously celebrating the U.S.'s disaster, and getting drunk, yelling to all and sundry in earshot..."down with America!" They were rather promptly invited to leave the country.
The PRC/PLA doesn't even want U.S. business managers to drive around on their own (even in Shanghai!)...they supply their OWN drivers... presumably to spy on them, unless they really do "need protection" [And just why would THAT be?].
Or perhaps they are practicing a curious Chinese rascism that is condescending to Westerners, that they can't find their way around?
Which is it?
I don't fault Chinese people...as a whole... for these antagonisms. But there clearly are both individual and ideological malefactors...and the CCCP has bloody red hands all over this. And you have been strangely quiet about that right from your initial emergence onto Free Republic.
Was I replying to you? No.
If you talk to any Chinese from Shanghai about how the expats treat the locals, you'll get very similar responses. I am just telling tallhappy and Gordon what I have seen. if you don't agree with it, then so be it. Every thread you post, you bring up the CCP, i am not sure why, but this has nothing to do with the CCP.
