We can find racism everywhere if we want to look hard enough.

Racism could be, for example: charging me a higher price because of my white skin. Just a thought ...
Take me down to the paradise city, where the grass is green and the girls are pretty

So far in my week here I have seen little things. People staring at us now & then, but when my son spikes his hair or wears his lip ring I attribute a lot of it to that. But even when he looks "normal" people still look... but I wouldn't call that racism. We DID GET SHOUTED AT once - some older lady, maybe 50's, walking across the street, I don't know what she said but I could tell it was extremely hateful. You would think we murdered someone from her tone of voice. Since I didn't understand her we just kept walking, and I evengiggled a little because it was just so weird and she was so freaky! Also, the beggars tend to target us more. Last night a begging guy grabbed my son's arm, then mine after. Yuck... no offense, really, I know he's a human & all, but I don't want ANYONE grabbing my arm unless he's really really cute and he's smiling while doing it.

Also, I was trying to read a bus sign, comparing it to my map, to see if we could get a bus there. Some girl just totally laughed and said something to her guy right there in front of us. I can't wait until I can speak Chinese better. I thought of a good comeback to some girls who were laughing at my son, but I thought of it later, once they were gone.

ON THE OTHER HAND - a KFC employee helped us find an empty table though there were other people also looking.... weird... twice now cabs stopped for us rather than the chinese people near us (very awkward, not cool, didn't like that) ...and there was some very introverted looking punk kid on a bus, with a crazy outfit, two different color shoelaces, lots of jewelry, spiky hair, etc.... looking very sad & lonely.... I told him in Chinese that my son liked his hair & shoes, and the kid couldn't keep his smile in no matter how hard he tried. He didn't say anything, but he held back a smile the rest of the trip. I think we made his day, or even week.
I am not rich.  :L

nON=anTI Foreign

Met a girl once ... Han Chinese

Told that was the best....  reseach showed that be 92% of the population of China.

Also make's me wonder what "Han-Gook" in Korean really means as far as origins?

Chinese racist?   Not really... just the best, No brag just fact in their mind.   Always was taught that it ain't braging if you can back it up.

I'm a true racist, I treat you like you treat me.  There is good and bad in all people's, races, countries, etc.  

I judge people on individual merits.   The world if full of "foreigners", very hard to be part of the global community and be antiforeign......
Communication is the most important source of personal power.
