Hahaha. Such deep-seated inferiority, resentment and self-pity.

 

To any Chinese boys who sympathise with the article above (I am hesitant to say "men", because men face their problems like men):

 

You assume Chinese people are so polite and good-natured, without having any basis (or desire) for comparison. If the above article adequately expresses how you feel about foreign people in China - your attitude isn't polite or welcoming at all.

 

Chinese tourists are quickly gaining a reputation as rude and uncivilised, not because the world is unfair, but because spitting, shouting, fighting and going to the toilet in public are not acceptable in other countries.

 

China is quickly losing popularity as a nation because of its dishonesty and belligerence in international politics, military aggression, and growing xenophobia and blame-the-west mentality (see the above article, again).

 

What actual problems do foreigners in China cause you? Or is it that insecure boys will always lash out at someone different rather than take responsibility for their own shortcomings?

Reading the article and I was thinking... I read a lot of news from Chinese major internet news portals like QQ, Wangyi, etc... what always surprises me is that the comment parts are always surprisingly rather balanced and clear minded, and show little restraint in criticizing officials trying to sell them BS. 

Which leads me to wonder where are hiding those folks.
To answer your question, the producer of this video is http://yidu.im/ 壹读, seems like some kind of Beijing "news" tabloid focused at writing random stuff about random hot topics. Don't take it too seriously, their other videos are exactly the same kind of idiotic imaging of diverse subjects without any serious research.

I am offended that the video does not embrace the common stereotype that laowei are always donkey-rigged.

The article itself is quite fair : yup, Wang from Anhui moving to Shanghai to get a piece of the cake have it way harder than Joe from US moving to Shanghai. Gaokao, hukou and all sort of bullshits. Some people coming to China for working get scammed and work in conditions that would unacceptable in many other places... Same bitter soup for the average Chinese. People will be more shy with a foreigner than with a Chinese.

The comment section, however... I see "us and them" mentality, angry nationalism, inferiority complex. Meh.

if you want pride and respect, make something that is yours to be proud of that  you did not copy, lie, cheat, or steal to get it. that would be a good start. otherwise the nationalism and xenophobia is as useless as static on a radio station, does any one hear the tree falling in the empty forest.

Don't even waste your time reading it. I had a reading of the first paragraph, then realized it's worthless. I just have may other things better to do then reading this things. I lose patience. There's this so "urgent appeal" at the bottom of the website saying :"Chinese women, please don't sleep with foreigners!"  The headline it's followed by  a long text, I didn't even looked at it. Seriously, would a normal, mentally healthy person write such thing? Why would I poison myself with this?

It's like those Mac vs PC ads. 

 

Or "Genesis does what Nintendon't"

 

In other words: it's easy to make a one-sided video.

It's interesting to see how difficult things are being made for the immigrants from within China. By their own government and the warped laws of their country, that is. Foreigners have nothing to do with it. But we can always be blamed.

We get preferential treatment? I wish I knew that before I had to do the "blood in, blood out" thing.

This video is such a propaganda... I'm not sure if it is made to attract foreigners or just the opposite. Still I did not experience any preferentail treatment while living in China. I don't know what's the purpose of this video - the only thing it achieved is irritating and offending every laowei in the country.

Too bad...

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
