Chinese Racism Talk Peaks as Obama’s Visit Approaches

- By Bossip Staff Categories: Bolitics, For Discussion, News


Racial controversy is on the rise in China because of 20-year-old Lou Jing, a mixed Chinese girl, who won a very popular talent show, Go! Oriental Angel. Next week, President Obama is visiting China, so this racial controversy couldn’t come at a more awkward time.

Lou Jing had never experienced discrimination until this past August when she defeated thousands of other young women on a popular televised show. Lou, whose father is African-American, was exposed to all types of racial slurs. Some from angry Internet posters which called her a “black chimpanzee” and some even went as far as to call for all blacks in China to be deported.

This turmoil comes a week before the President, who is mixed as well, visits the country. Some of the Chinese attitudes regarding race have been deep-rooted for a while, but has since been heightened with the election of the first Black president in America. Many Chinese appeared stunned that Americans had elected a black man and since President Obama has been in office, China has seen increasing numbers in the amount of blacks that live there. It is expected that his visit will also increase the number of blacks that visit the country.

With changes in race and equality reaching across the world, it will be interesting to see how the Chinese will transform and descend into the new age and ever-changing ties related to racism and the world.

    Chinese people need to wake up. So they get to settle any country, are more than happy to to send their cheap products around the world, but when it’s reversed, some ignorant people want to complain. Tough crap!

    Maybe this is the wake-up call they need to get their backwards mentality into the 21st century.

    Why does everything that happens anywhere in the world you folks have to call President Obama’s name – Y’ll need to find another name to over-use.
    China has been dealing with this problem for years, but remember there are more than one million Chinese living in Africa, and they are happy to go and work alongside Africans.

    In Chinese lore the first Chinese people were Black, also, they don’t really like Whites also – Is that also Obama’s fault?
