An American in China

Chinese Political Correctness

Posted by w_thames_the_d on March 10, 2011

I just received a perky note from one of the helpers at a university I attended. BTW in China they have dorky names like helper and class monitor for the morons who love to boss around the other students. But anyway this guy sends an email about an upcoming trip. He says we will go to the great wall and have traditional Chinese food- like thats a surprise, we are in China. But then he says we will eat at the house of a Chinese “Peasant”! NO shit…. how would you like to be the ‘peasant’ serving us? The Chinese have no idea of how disparaging of a word this is and everyone from the head red on down seems to use it….
