I always wondered why the Singapore team was mostly Malay when Chinese are 70% of Singaporeans. Maybe something similar to blacks in the US?

I wish China had a better team. A billion people in the country and we can't find 11 to play soccer? I think China just lost to Iraq this week. They don't even have a field to play on back home but they beat China.....

there are many black descendants of slaves in Saudi Arabia. I have classes with many Saudis and some are black, some are white and look European, some look Indian, but most are Arab-looking, of course
