Ban European style clothes in China. No more jeans, T-shirts etc.^^

What a bullsh1t thread.....somebody here has a huge inferiority complex.

I can understand the core issue of wetac0s' concern.

Many high-tech goods and famous brands come from Western countries. And especially brand good transfer a certain image or feeling through their advertisements. And the life style they represent is an Italian, French or whatever life style and image. This means, a European (or American, in case of American brands) environment is shown as desirable and as a role-model. This also applies to the people there. And I can understand that many Asians are not contented with this.

But I disagree with the reproach that Western companies intentionally want to transport a message of racial superiority. Companies want to , nothing else. It is sad that they often don't consider the effect of their advertisements. But a large-scale plan to "brainwash" Asians? No, certainly not....

For a reason "Made in China" products are still associated with cheap plastic, easily spoiled, breakable, fake and what more.

Before all that image needs to be changed by producing high quality products combined with professional advertisement.
