I'm black: I'm smart, well educated (guess what? NOT in racial studies! Amazing, no?) and actually fun to have a conversation with, Booaguy! Shame you'll never get to know me, with the attitude you have there.|
But you know what? I really pity you, and I'm trying really hard not to look down upon you for exactly the reason you just pointed out.
The funny thing is: that people actually look down upon Chinese people (not really Japanese or Koreans, though)! In fact, the majority of the "foreign" people I met in China do exactly that, whether they are black, white, brown and even yellow.
They say that Chinese people are "dirty" "greedy", "lazy" and "cheats", that they have abandoned their culture and degraded it for the love of the dollar. I am ashamed to bring my mother to Beijing because I know she couldn't handle the dirt and mess. My cousin and friends say that the only reason they'll return to China is for the DVDs and fake bags they can give to their friends because they won't wear them themselves. Of the Western people I met in Beijing studying Chinese: 75% of them (and I am the only black girl studying Chinese as a degree in my entire university - so that gives you a clue about who's saying it) are doing it in order to take advantage of the booming economy and have absolutely no desire to interact with Chinese apart from when it is abslutely necessary. In fact, I am one of around 4 people from my (London) university who actually made friends with Chinese during our year-long stay out there. Everyone else just stuck with other Western people and maybe hung out with a couple Japanese or Koreans.
The foreign guys (black AND white) I know all say they want to go back to China because the girls are easy, and that that is the only way they'll interact with them. And to that guy who says that the black guys hump their girlfriend: dude, do you think she would have been humped if she didn't want to be???
Even the foreign girls I know all have a "thing" for Koreans or Japanese: none (again I emphasise: none THAT I KNOW) with a specific "thing" for Chinese guys AFTER being in China (some of them started off liking Chinese guys).
To add to that, not the majority, but all my black friends laugh at Chinese people, saying the only thing they're good for is to sell illegal DVDs and form triads, selling those exact same illegal drugs you're talking about!
So it is hilarious to hear of you coming here and slating us black people. Because many of us (and other Westerners) feel the same way about you.
But like I say, I'm trying very VERY hard not to despise (literal meaning: look down upon) you, Booaguy. And, praise God, I'm succeeding, because I've had enough positive Chinese and black influences in my life to know that you don't speak for everyone. And I will continue to defend Chinese and other Asian people when they are being attacked by us, as much as I am defending us black people from people like you.
I hope you find some kind of enlightenment soon, my dear.
