....but the first requirement is they be NON-CHINESE expats! Why?

It's the BANANA Syndrome Colin.

You bet this banana effect is well and truly entrenched on the Mainland! That's why I keep saying it's a shame for the Chinese to discriminate against their own kind! Many overseas Chinese, and I mean those born and bred overseas, speak and write English as good as the whites, but the Mainland schools always reject them in preference for whites, because, according to some principals, the Chinese parents insist on white teachers!

You are LYING.

Your "RETURNING Chinese ENglish teachers" are not "OVERSEAS CHINESE"; they are Ch ...

"Overseas Chinese do not "return" to China - they might EMIGRATE to it. "

On this point I agree with you. Whenever we say overseas Chinese we always mean those Chinese born and bred overseas, not those from China who went overseas and then return to China; these are called sea turtles, not overseas Chinese. So bloggers should be clear about this terminology.

Congrats Colin,  you have brought up a topic that has been on the minds of many Chinese expats in China; they all face the same problem you have raised, reverse racial discrimination!  This is a national problem, not limited to Shenzhen alone!  The Mainland Chinese discriminate against their own race, they have a weird obsession for people who look foreign, with their first preference being whites, but if whites are not available, they don't mind  blacks or a browns, anyone who does not look like themselves, because they have a very low self esteem, always thinking foreign-looking foreigners are superior creatures!  Shame on them for having such racial prejudice towards their own kind.
