Yes, Chopstick guy. I'LL BE BACK!
You should find it painful a long time ago, not now when people start talking about it.
What is even more painful is when foreigners start to take videos of ...
I hope you are not tearing as you sound like you are. I am a pretty tough person and if you are on the brink of tears, you'd better stay away from me. I don't like cry babies and I won't be easy on them.
Do you know Bruce Lee? Yes, I am referring to the legendary Chinese kungfu actor in the 70s.
To be honest, I am not a fan of Bruce Lee. But recently I bought a collection of his old movie DVDs and I enjoy them very much. I became interested in Chinese martial arts movies after I watched the movie "IP MAN" starring actor Donnie Yen. I also watched the sequel IP MAN 2 (starring Donnie Yen and Samo Hung). I think ALL CHINESE should watch IP MAN and IP MAN 2 --- excellent movies showing real Chinese kungfu and humanity, as compared to Hollywood violent and wasted junk !
In one of the movies he acted, Bruce Lee (a Chinese) was outside a park where only the foreigners (white men and japanese) were allowed in. When he tried to enter, they stopped him and pointed to a signboard outside the park which says "No Dogs and Chinese Allowed".
Angered, he fought those foreigners and kicked their ass off.
The setting may be a movie but it reflects the real life situation in those days but not too long ago. The park is in China and yet Chinese are not allowed to enter.
Imagine yourself a Chinese (a farmer) and you are prohibited from entering the park (Shanghai Expo) because of your colour or who you are -- Chinese, or a farmer with little or no opportunity of education.
How would you feel? What will you do?
What I find your account at the Expo admirable and very encouraging is that CHINA has not forgotten this segment of her people who also make up the majority of her populatoin -- the hardworking farmers and labourers who may dress shabbily and their behaviour appear "uncouthed" in foreign eyes.
IN CHINA, IN THEIR OWN COUNTRY, THEY ARE GIVEN THE SAME TREATMENT AND THE SAME WELCOME TO THE ELEGANT SHANGHAI EXPO LIKE ALL THE REST, FOREIGNERS OR NO FOREIGNERS.
In fact, the discrimination or absence of discrimination as in Shanghai Expo is something I had not given thought when I argued in another thread complaining Chinese's push and shove (Wanderer123).
If Shanghai Expo had been something different ------- no criticisms but only praise ------- I would be VERY VERY DISAPPOINTED.
Because of what you share with us here, Taikor, I feel encouraged to visit Shanghai Expo even though I have not made any prior plans for it. How many days do you need to see the entire Expo, do you know?
As for you, Taikor, as a person and a Chinese from Malaysia, you are a TOTAL DISAPPOINTMENT and a SHAME to all Chinese (just like that yellow- white man wannabe, Wanderer123) because
you are not a Chinese farmer
you have not experienced a hard life
you have not experienced loss and not having enough
All you know is to feel shame because the foreigners are clicking their cameras away and laughing (or angry).
Instead of confronting those idiots and giving them a piece of your mind (if you have any), you only know how to turn to the Chinese and say CHANGE CHANGE CHANGE !!!
If I were you at the Expo, Taikor, I will ask those people to fck -off. Did you?
