Chinese Racism Talk Peaks as Obama’s Visit Approaches

- By Bossip Staff

CHINA

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?

    @Darth H8ter, Where can I get one of those shirts?!

    That shirt is a pro Obama slogan, showing Obama as a great leader like Mao (a most revered leader).
    it’s like you folks getting Chinese symbol tattoo and not knowing what it means.

    Too bad China’s current regime does’nt share that slogans’ sentiments. They look at Obama as being weak, and you really can’t blame them, considering a few months ago, Obama refused to extend the Dahli Lama(sp) the courtesy of an audience during his visit to the U.S. for fear of angering China. You can best believe they’re only going to use Obama to validate their unjust rule over Tibet and their other human rights atrocities. The only reason Obama is going to China, is to kiss their a$$ due to China’s threat of economic protectionism. If he Obama was smart, he’d call their bluff, considering China’s economic business model is exporting.

  • always knew

    that was s*u*r*p*a*s*s* us, that they censored…

    i don’t hate anyone’s culture, they stick together,we don’t. Then we wonder why we don’t make rogress. China is about to take over, as the worlds’ super power…They don’t see blks as equal..Go figure..Where did they ever get that from? Right.

    It’s up to you, will you pretend this is not happening WORLD WIDE or wil you deal with it, the hard issues, the discrimination, the dehumanizing of our people..Or will you keep selling out and then still keep defending everyone except your own?

    Who’s the ones really brain/white-washed??

  • always knew

    should’ve said PROGRESS…

    @Marquis de Sade

    The Chinese regime is doing what governments do, and Obama is right about Tibet, China doesn’t tell us waht to do with Puerto Rico/Guam/Cuba/etc. and we don’t tell them what to do about Tibet.

    The Chinese are concerned about Obama because they got comfortable dealing with an idiot like Bush and now they know they have to up their game to deal with a smart President.
    Obama is in the Orient basin to re-establish American dominance in that region after Bush gave it away

    you ever read the comments that self-identified blacks make about the other half of their race on THIS blog ???

    there is NO racial pride among blacks, just gender-to-gender animosity.

    can’t say that i BLAME other races, if blacks have that much hatred for THEMSELVES.
