How are black people viewed in China? [Copy link] 中文

I have met a lot of Chinese who tell me they don't like black people. When I asked why, the answers were always the same: because black people are dirty and because they are dangerous. The only black man who escaped this judgement was Barack Obama, who in the majority of cases is seen as a nice person.

So my question is: why this racism against black people? Are answers like the ones I received very common in China? What are the feelings of Chinese on black people?

Sad

I'll give you a good example that somes it up.

My ex Chinese girlfriend and I were on holiday. We ate in a Cinese resteraunt were there were no other Chinese people in the town, or anywhere near a days drive. The Chinese running the resteraunt WERE COLD.

They showed, AND HAD, No interest in the fact another one of there people was there with them in this far away place.

I am Australian. I said, if we were far away, and I ran into other Australians, there would be an instant comraderie. A Chinese person doesnt care so much about othersm, as they do their immediate interests.

The Black Man, serves little use to Chinese peoples advancement. Moreover, given they are a minority in the west, and very rare in Asia........a very primitive mindset is used. The unfamiliarity of freely mixing with others is made apparent.

When you hear references to Blacks looking like apes, that is also a cultural insensitivity...not an inherent dislike. You watch Chinese officials bow at Obamas feet when he visits China and they roll out the red carpet.

What you thought was an Ape, now becomes your superior when he is your guest. Change your mindset, and warm up.

As we all know, if we want to get full respects from others , the first thing we should do is respecting other people .So, we should not look down upon black people even though some o them are dirty or lazy.
