Looked at objectively, the blogger is not wrong!  The Chinese have spent decades learning English, but the results are far from satisfactory!  Witness the way most of them speak and write English!  Chinglish can be seen all over China, presenting a problem to foreigners, weird and often hilarious!  Many Chinese have at least ten years of English education, from primary school to university, and some even major in English at university. And today, they start even earlier, at kindy!

Feel sorry to make you feel that way...  But Please believe that most Chinese like to treat people ...

Got to disagree!  Most Chinese ae prejudiced against their own kind; they look up to foreigners, especially those with white skin as superior, probably a legacy of colonialism, when China was poor and the whites invaded with guns and opium, raided and burnt down the Summer Palace, and carted away precious relics, and forced the emperor to give up Hong Kong, etc.  China is now the world's second largest economy, and still growing strong, it's time for the Chinese to respect their own kind, and not keep looking up to those who look foreign!

An English school recruiter actually rejected a qualified overseas Chinese, telling him right in his face, "We want a white!"  Now, go figure out, is that what you mean by treating everyone  "with equal and respect"?

I don't think that's true, even though on the surface it does look that way as far as recruiting English teachers is concerned.

Chinese people are NOT prejudiced against their own kind.  If anything, Chinese culture couldn't have survived intact for so long -- longer than any other culture -- if that's the case.

What you are seeing is limited to a very few endeavors -- English teaching being one of them.
