Do you mean being banned because of a persons race? That type of crap?

Yes. Sorta.
Its crap because its an unsubstantiated claim that Beijing has widespread racial bans. Not because it doesn't matter. But thanks for clearly not reading the point of the rest of my posts and twisting my words. I was actually supporting you in saying that Soju obviously accepts racism, and that's bad.

Note that in Alabama ( a state in a country that repeatedly has had the Olympics, including the 1996 ATL Olympics in parts right in the state) interracial marriage was made officially legal in 2004. In this vote 41% voted AGAINST making interracial marriage legal. You want to talk racism?
CNN.com - Alabama repeals century-old ban on interracial marriages - November 8, 2000 (http://archives.cnn.com/2000/ALLPOLITICS/stories/11/07/alabama.interracial/ - broken link)
There has never been such a law in China.

A state rep. actually publicly opposed interracial marriage:
http://www.cnn.com/US/9903/12/interracial.marriage/

Jesse Helms was openly racist and some newspaper still openly give positive obituaries.
http://www.maynardije.org/columns/dickprince/080704_prince/ (broken link)

It is not limited to the South.

Nazi paraphenalia is produced in places like Ohio and shipped to Europe.
http://www.wsws.org/articles/2005/oc...ohio-o17.shtml

The US is hardly without recent racist officials and populations. Plus it has a record of ignoring international norms and invading sovereign nations (not just this administration, but many far back) so that they can support "their son of a b****".
Perhaps the US should have been banned from the Olympics?
Of course I don't really believe that. The US is my home country and despite its flaws I love it. But it shows that people in glass houses shouldn't throw stones.

What are you talking about? Who's twisting? I simply asked what you meant by "crap". I think you're responding to the wrong person

Baaaddd Soju baaadd. Nahhh, I think "preference" is more accuate than racist.We all have our preferences just like everyone else. Its just matter of degrees.
That's why we choose to live in certain neighborhoods and travel in certain circles. I'm just real.

Sorry, I took a connotation that wasn't there.
My fault!

I have several Chinese and other asian friends. They tend to have negative racial opinions of blacks if they are raised abroad. Anyone under the age of 40 in this country has been hit very very hard with the concept of racial equality, that is if you are white.

So the irony is that the racists in the US tend to be older whites and younger minorities...truly sad.

Default china bans blacks from bars

You have to admit that most americans would do the same if they could get away with it.

They are some of the worst people around and only the certain elites who dont deal with them on a daily basis would say otherwise.
