Q: why are westerners constantly trying to " blackball" Africans in China on the internet?

All this talk about discrimination and racism in China against black Africans. Yes there exists some ignorance on the Chinese perspective...but all this slander and backstabbing and cold stone hearted discrimination comes from the westerner( the white guys off course) but worse from the black westerners who prefer to align themselves with their "masters".....[In my experience]

 

Please tell me "sincerely" that we are all on the same boat

Could you provide some examples?

If you want people to understand, please help us here, you are being very general - most people would probably agree that generalisations are very unhelpful, especially if you are looking for support of some sort..

after I quit, my school will replace me with two Pakistanis, who they'll pass off as an Ozzie and and American. Dark skin, imperfect speech, but I still hope they'll get a fair chance. I'm aware of the ordeal dark skinned people face here, due to prejudices and preferences.

I haven't seen much criticism of black people from the (predominantly male white?) forum users, except the occasional comment that most Africans can't be considered native English speakers. For the rest, we're all brothers "lost in translation".

This is where I go to comiserate with others who have stress from dealing with China. Diverse backgrounds contribute diverser opinions, so I'm usually happy to hear the meaningful opinion of a black guy, a woman, or even a local Chinese.

Last time I saw the news, the most powerful man in the world was not white.

 

Yeah, white privilalige is a fact. An ugly racist fact. It's a money thing. It's a right wing thing.

 

But to the vast majority of people in the free world, skin colour does not count as worth a single flying fuck when they cast their ballot.

 

Nor does gender, or sexual orientation.

 

And for the record, no back stabbing goes on here. Heated arguments at times. They are fun.

 

This site is a non racist, no face, jovial at times... place for everyone of any nationality, no matter their  gender, colour, race, political view or sexual orientation.

 

We come here to answer questions. People need help at times. And we fill the space between questions with a bit of banter.

 

Ask a serious question dude...... trust me... you will get a serious answer.

You sound frustrated. Have a drink and try to focus on overcoming the hurdles instead of burying yourself in them.

 

This world has no sympathy for a whiner.

This post reeks with a racist stink. Discrimination from white people? Black people willingly submitting themselves to their masters? I highly doubt either of the narratives. Its too hard to make sense of any of this garbage.

What i read on echinacities is terrifying to say the least and what i have experienced in real life in China ...is not so bad...Chinese people can be the most beautiful and good natured people, at the end of the day i think it all boils down to a person's character and their quality of work, not necessarily skin color or nationality.

 

I rest my case

I am not a westerner but I must tell you if the system was in westerners' hands there won't be situation like what you are feeling right now. The problem is in the very ideology of 'white means pure and black means disease' in Chinese society. There are number of doctors from India and Pakistan in the US and Europe, why? Because the system there provides chances to people from all ethenic backgounds which is why West has got the talent in almost every field. My teacher (from Pakistan ) has been teaching English in the UK for years despite he is South Asian just because he has the ability to deliver.

Weeks ago I was walking back home and a black guy was walking ahead of me and a kid probably 4, 5 pointed at him saying "hei ren" and the grandma steering him giggled like as ifit something to be proud of. When I passed by , I tried to avoid them saying something but I heard "weigu ren" and a giggle. It summarizes my personal experience.

You're a wumao. If not, then the reason you can't get a teaching job is very simple. Your English is too Chinglish.

 

Seriously man. Time to move on. Dispose of that chip.

I'm "white" . Couple of weeks ago in Beijing felt the power of discrimination.

Went for lunch to one lovely place.. it was packed with Africans, and there were some "free" tables with handbags on them.. no one even tried to take them away. So.. I just left the place. Didn't have  that feeling before, even in Brooklyn.

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
