Not so much now? When does this happen even a little bit in the US?

China is a developing nation. They are many years behind the United States in development. This includes human rights development.

You have never heard of racial segregation in the United States?

I've lived in Korea and now Japan. I've also been to China and familiar with some of this.

While there are all kinds of GOOD Mongolians and the like. Many of them are prostitutes. IF it means anything, over here in Japan, its just as easy to see Chinese become prostitutes. You also see the same with other Asian women. WHY? Because there is NO OTHER OPPORTUNITIES for them. I should say there are factories and entertainment visas in Japan/Korea, but they often bait and switch the girl from 'entertainment' into prostitution. Asian countries can be fairly brutal in that regard.

Blacks. Again, there is NO LEGAL opportunities for them. They are mostly almost always from AFRICA. Some come on business visas, and do have legit businesses. But many others become pimps for Russian women, etc.

While the element is there, and there is another element where 'Mongolians' and 'Africans' are there LEGIT...they govt who has created almost NO opportunity for them whatsoever, would rather just NOT have them going into businesses and allowing any illegal activity to take place.

Also, for those who know Beijing (or anywhere in Asia), you'll find that prostitution is VERY NORMAL. But from what I know of my friends in Beijing, they are trying to give off this very squeaky-clean perfect image of their city, that would never ever in a million years have such things as people who take drugs or visit a prostitute.

Wink Could they possibly?

Hard to believe, although I read the article. Recently I saw a news program on a number of things authorities were coaching the public not to ask their Olympic guests, such as how much money they made, their occupation, or age. It appears the Chinese are very concerned that they display the best possible 'face' for these Olympics.

If this report is accurate they will either have to backpedal swiftly, or end up with egg all over their face. Perhaps they do not fully appreciate some Western sensibilities, but these Games perhaps the chance to learn fast.

I can just imagine the international news stories and outcry when the first few black Olympic guests cry foul if mistreated.

1st Where is mongolia and second looks like the chinese are a bit racist considering they have a bad crime rate themselves but they cant tell who does it so they shiuft it to mongolians and blacks. What you see in the olympics is the complete opposite of real Bejiing it smells like pee and the air is crap and there is people smoking everywhere trains pubs you name it.

Are you serious? Do people not learn basic world geography in school anymore?

Find China on a globe and look north. It is between China and Russia.
