Being dark skinned is considered UGLY in Chinese culture, plain and simple. It also makes people think you are a peasant instead of a city (read wealthy or cultured) person.

Also the Chinese are experts at not giving the slightest fukk what anyone outside their immediate family or circle of connections think. They will do dumb shit in public and nary a fukk is given.

Those masks are retarded looking, and I hope people who wear them get some kind of skin rash from it absorbing polluted waters and rubbing on their faces. But it is something anyone could see coming, like the next logical step from the old Korean ladies on the golf course who are covered head to toe.

Asians want white skin and will go to great lengths to get it.
Maybe next time you get it right without contradicting yourself.

It's hard to take the moral high ground when parts of US also have their hands dirty.


And it's also slightly silly to assume that China 20 years from now would be the exact same China as it is now isn't it?

And while I'm not fan of most of China, let's remember that on average Chinese citizens are still like 8 times poorer than Americans. Holding them to American standards is quite an ask.
You think they'd just cut out the child slavery and sweat shops? They whole economy is based on those things.

Let me out it this way. A sweatshop to you = decent wages for a Chinese. Does it entail incredibly tough working hours? Yes, but at the time there were little other options. Would you rather those people didn't have jobs or worked on subsistence farming?

Btw I think your data is out of date. In the major cities, the manufacturing industry actually needs to raise wages because ppl are refusing to work for them cause of better pay in electronics and other industries

Don't forget there are 120 boys for every 100 girls in China. That will mean 10s of millions of men will grow up without any chance at women. What will happen?

I would think at some point they are going to have a revolution. They are bringing in too much western product, too much western culture, allowing travel so easily overseas, etc. You allow people out, you bring in ideas. No one wants to have their thinking, their freedom to what they want curtailed as much as it is.

Man, I shouldn't have started looking into how disgusting some Chinese people are. I'm not against a culture eating cats or dogs if it's a tradition, but the way they treat them, the way acquire them, and the way they kill them is terrible.

Glad I'm not Chinese.

fucking sick ......

I think lots of things about China are good, for example acupuncture, and their strong, if extremely unhealthy, sense of work ethic.

But the shitty outweighs the good. They have no safety codes. Entire cities are built and people go to work every day in buildings that could collapse at any moment.

Chinese pirate everything and make it cheap and bad.

Considering how hard they work you'd think atleast they'd put out quality products, but the Chinese code seems to be as long as it looks good on the outside, it doesnt matter how f*cked up and quickly done it is on the inside. Not just talking about buildings here, chinese seem to have that philosophy about everything.
keeping bears in tiny cages, with a long tube in the gald bladder, milking it daily......is also a chinese favorite
