So basically native Beijingers hate anyone who wasn't originally coming from Beijing; indigenous Shanghai people loathe anyone who couldn't speak Shanghai dialect. Hence the currently raging debate about Hukou and the education issues that come with it.

It's a bit like New Yorkers looking down upon anyone who is outside New York, or Londoners snubbing their noses at anyone who is from the countryside.....right?
