No, veal is not cute.

And all these people who are giving excuses about blacks and Mongolians being corrupt need to get real. The Chinese have their hands deep in all the underworld vices: prostitution, drugs, bribery, you name it, it is there. The Chinese government is very hypocritical. I also don't believe this crap about China being the new economic power. Pure bull. It is only viewed from an economic point of view. If you looked at a socio-political point of view you'll see things differently.

I like how everyone's talking about how horrible and prejudiced the Chinese are, from reading one article that's been circulated everywhere but has absolutely no credibility. Most people on this board know nothing about China. This story is total BS.

So what are you saying? Racism doesn't exist in China? By the way here is another "BS" article...

Of course not. That doesn't mean that its not a BS article that if you read another post in this thread showed that the journalist didn't have credibility.
My point is that China is that compared to the US, China isn't exactly a lot worse. Western news is incredibly biased against China. If you just read or watch western news sources it paints a very biased picture of China. That article is a horrible overgeneralization. It is like painting with broad strokes the the idea that US that US still hates all its minorities. You know, at one time an anti-immigration act was created specifically to keep Chinese out? That in China's own land the Brits put up a sign that said "No Chinese or dogs allowed"? That bans on interracial marriage in the US were not declared unconstitutional until 1967?
The point is, racism is everywhere. The Chinese are no more racist than anyone else.
The Chinese government would not take the risk of implementing such a policy like that. Their mistakes are actually in the opposite direction: "La la la la, every ethnicity in China is happy happy! Everybody gets along great!". They wouldn't make a policy of racial and ethnic segregation in one of the cities they are most proud of that has little racial strife existing. Are Chinese racist, in particular against blacks? Indeed. But every culture has its prejudices. I just don't want people getting such a narrow-minded view of China.
