Racist Chinese Even Hate Their Own

Posted by w_thames_the_d on March 1, 2014

Chinese from China are probably the most intolerant race of humans on the planet. If it weren’t for hatred, they would probably have little emotion to show , aside from envy and worthlessness. If you think ai am joking, ask any foreigner how many times some ignorant Chinese hurls inults in Mandarin, either directly or indirectly their way. Even more telling, ask any black skinned person how they have been treated here.

The following describes ‘tolerance’ China style.


A Chinese state media outlet used a racist slur to criticise departing US ambassador Gary Locke in an insulting commentary which even blamed him for Beijing’s notorious pollution.

The 64-year-old became the first ethnic Chinese in the post when he was appointed in 2011, going on to gain quasi-celebrity status for his modest style and for drawing attention to China’s unhealthy skies.

But Locke, who left his role on Saturday, received a highly undiplomatic sendoff from the China News Service in a sneering editorial which referred to him as a “banana”, and a “guide dog” for helping a blind activist.

“He is a banana with yellow skin and a white heart”, Friday’s article opened by saying, calling Locke’s ethnicity a ploy by the US to win Chinese hearts and minds while seeking to kick up trouble in the region.

“But the ‘yellow skin’ of bananas will eventually rot, not only revealing the ‘white core’ inside but also turning into a putrid ‘black core’,” the commentary went on.

Locke was viewed as a trailblazer in highlighting the PM 2.5 particulate matter carried in the thick blankets of smog pervading China’s capital.

He presided over the introduction of PM 2.5 monitors at the US embassy and consulates around China, drawing widespread attention to the stubborn problem of pollution.

But the official agency wrote that “once Locke arrived, so did the Beijing smog”.

It also scorned Locke’s image as an unpretentious official known for carrying his own luggage and using a regular car in contrast to his Chinese counterparts.

Citing unnamed foreign media outlets, the commentary accused him of luxuriating in a $100 million official residence and travelling in a fancy bullet-proof vehicle.
