There's a breed of foreigners that would rather deal with the mainlanders coz quite a few of these mainlanders are naive and gullibile, and coz they are easily fooled and taken advantage of. Th ...


I rather have different experience with your lot, in regards of who is looking down on others.
Knew an overseas chinese whom I once didn't immeadeatly recognise being out.
How could I by only seeing his back?
Well he went angry at me for mistaking him for "just a chinese" (yes that were his words),
an insultive nature of such a mistake, that he assumed to be present,
would on the other hand require the further assumption of mainland chinese not to be on same level.
As for me, I am seeing any decent and reasonable human around me as same level,
he obviously didn't, and therefore took mistaking him with similar looking people as an insult.

You guys are just taking the actual mainland chinese as stage props for playing your egos me thinks.
don't mind a good argument with ilea, as long as she doesn't make up thinks,
but you guys seem rather pathetic to me.

If you want to come up with something valid,
bring some valid points.
but you guys are just replying with insults when you,
so often, can't come up with a good reply.

That person clearly is embarassed and/or ashamed of being Chinese. They are known in circles as posessing a colonialistic mentality. Indeed there are overseas Chinese like that and the best way they can feel assimilated or belonging to the mainstream is to be against their own 'Chinese-ness'. It's called self-hate and is a symptom quite common among every minority group. I'm glad you experienced it coz I had a similar discussion on this site with another expat who implied that this 'self-hate' doesn't exist coz he never met any. Thanks for proving me right...!

I have a friend (white expat) teaching in Ningbo. He told me that once while walking he saw another expat coming his way. As they approached each other he smiled and tried to catch the person's eye. Instead the person avoided him as best he could. Go figure! Another friend from England went as a fill-in sub-teacher in a small city. The school had another teacher, full-time, from england. He was the only foreign teacher in the school. My friend told me that this teacher refused to talk to him, ignored him, wouldn't socialise. Why d'you think, I asked my friend. He wasn't sure but he sure was surprised. They were both white and from England. Were these expats being territorial? Maybe. Was it pathetic? Yes. Should I (do I) extrapolate that all expats are like that? No.....

It's well known in Chinese circles that many Hong Kong folks see themselves as being above the mainlanders. Heck they even see themselves as being above overseas Chinese. On the mainland itself city dwellers see themselves as being above the farmers. So what's new....? It's the human condition that afflicts people EVERYWHERE...!

One can run away from it or work to educate. And that's always the tough job. And what does one do when certain foreigners go to said country for the expressed purpose of behaving the same way and try to lord over others....? Why educate them as well, of course. If their ego doesn't stand in the way....

In a hostel in Beijing I saw this expat dude enter with his Chinese 'girlfriend'. They walked to the lounge area. He walked in and she followed. He screamed at her to stay out and he went in to chat with his friends. I looked on, and am happy to report that the looks on the faces of the other young expats in the room was that of shock and disdain for this pathetic dude....

So we are pathetic if we try to educate other Chinese like this young lady....?

Evidently you think so....

Now is that pathetic...or not...?

First of all - I thought you didn't support free speech in america?  In other threads you support terrorist threats against american cartoonists and support curbing our free speech.  I think you have no ground at all to stand on when it comes to this issue.  And racist looney?  Here are the facts: He posted this on a white supremacist forum.  That should tell you enough right there.  He wasn't on that forum standing against racism, he was participating.  Not a crime in itself, but it does show his character.  The white supremacists ARE looney!  All you have to do is here what they say.  They can barely speak english since most have a literacy level of a 3rd grader.  Secondly, he has shown in life he is unstable.  Unemployed for years, not a productive member of society.  Thirdly, our intelligence agencies have been on high alert for an assassination attempt against obama since he came into office.  So far they've done a good job - he's still alive.  That's a good thing.  White supremacists can't stand the idea of having a black president.  They want to kill him and you seem fine with that - but drawing a cartoon of mohammed - that's OVER the line isn't it?  WTF?  You try to make yourself come off as a reasonable person here, but you're bias keeps showing.
  
Behold the turtle. He makes progress only when he sticks his neck out.
