Because a lot of Chinese parents only want a white face teaching their children, plus they believe only the golden five countries can speak English. Is it racist, of course it is. The schools pander to the parents expectations with no thought to educating them, after all why would a school educate anyone when they can get the money for not doing it.

Because China probably don't have a trade foot hold in the country. ....yet
There is another reason but I won't be tacky and give it more oxygen than that.

I think, you would be better off if you'd write grievance letter to Xi Jinpong ...  On this Board, we only have SAFEA's web link.

My ol' man worked in Ghana when I was a kid.  Never forgot the native-made knife he brought me back.

The accent is not so good. They pronounce "er" like "a" Kind of like Gangsta instead of gangster but its used for all words. That's fine though. the main thing is the accent is something people don't want for their kids. And well they think white people know best...which is...well...not 100% true.

Most of the Ghanain people that I worked with had a little bit of a pronounciation problem. There was one time that a Chinese teacher corrected one of the teachers in class and as a man the Ghanain teacher felt that the Chinese teacher was trying to make him lose face in front of the students. I had the terrible job of pointing out that the Chinese teacher was correct in doing so. The Ghanain teacher then shifted his anger towards me so I simply asked him "how old are you?". His reply was "I'm dirty" I was trying to simply point out to him that he was acting very childish but then decided to ask him the same question another five times. If you have a problem saying th as in thank you, then and there, then you should not be teaching English because the higher grade students do pick it up and we don't want any of the primary school students learning from your mistakes. We are there to fix the mistakes and not teach them incorrectly. The original fight was about the word ballet and how it was pronounced.

As a conservative society with plenty of introverted individuals, China struggled with opening up to other cultures, races and societies. There were strugglings with opening to the western culture, strugglings with opening to the white race. I guess what we need is a little patience with Chinese nature of character. Eventually they will start to open themselves to other cultures and races other than the western culture and white race.

A:Wow, you really found that nitpicky talking point that elevates the fossil fuel industry to the same level as the interests of humanity. Isn't it all just a "liberal" scam, if you don't look too closely at the absence of logic? "Yes, it must be. My masters are hinting that that's what I should believe!"

You've made it clear you are consciously ignoring the pollution and global warming. Since your handlers, the conservative establishment whose dismantling of the carbon credit system and environmental destruction you choose to ignore, have made it clear you should bark in this direction, you are eager to please!

Such an admirably domesticated, dependable, subservient human. I'm sure your handlers will throw you a bone while they bring home the bacon for themselves. You're so obedient, you deserve a doggie cookie! Who's a good boy? You are! Yes, you are. U-S-A! Woof woof woof! -- coineineagh
