Understanding China, One Blog at a Time

An American in China

“Ghetto China”

Posted by w_thames_the_d on January 23, 2011

When I first graduated from college I took a job that placed me on Telephone Rd. by Hobby Airport in Houston. Some years later I had a job in Flint (armpit of the world) Michigan. What the residents of these two places have in common with China is that uncanny ability to justify obtaining wealth no matter the method of obtaining it. For instance, as long as a Flint’ite has some bling and extra cash, they may be happy, the process by which the funds were obtained is quickly forgotten. To understand China, consider this. Almost every China-man you will meet will have a similar desire to get rich as that Houstonian. They will do whatever it takes and proudly park their long dark vehicles upon the sidewalk. Fearful of telling you how they obtained their wealth, they wash away their consciouses at the KTV’s at the hands of their newest mistresses.
