Always good for a few replies though at least, it goads people.

Its hard to know who is really racist and those who are just deliberatlely winding people up.

I think in a way it is somewhat representative of a mindset that is likely prevalent there. We get unfiltered truth on the internet. Who lies where there are no consequences for said actions  ...



Perhaps - but forums that allow people to spew hatred without any consequence will also attract people who are particularly angry at the world. But as Seneca points out most of it here is focused on the evil 'Anglo'

The Chinese government - the Chinese people's ultimate source of wisdom, insights and truths! - has changed its stance on virtually every thing uncounted times over the past 60 years or so; you mus ...


China and Africa have been cooperating since the 1950's - this is common knowledge.  African nations have always been the only true friends of CHina when the west wanted to turn every nation against CHina.  This CHina-Africa friendship is has been around since Zhang He sailed to Africa in the 14th century.  Only now the west is taking notice because it is harder to take advantage of Black people now.  

FYI, The Black Panther movement was inspired by Mao.  I have never met a Chinese person who hated blacks, unless they lived in America/the west where racism is ingrained into society.

Hello,

I found this forum through google after a conversation with a British Chinese man who revealed to me his hatred of black people.  Some of the things he said were horrible, for example, he ...

You do know that your statement alone is racism?

Welcome back, Wettie. Why are you always absent for whole semesters, only to reappear and looking totally green?

Zheng He did not visit Africa in the 14th century, my good girl. Read up  ...


And you would know because you are white - therefore knowledgeable of all things asian and black?  

Zheng He (1371-1433 AD), an eunuch in Ming dynasty, built a total of 1622 ships and made at least 7 major excursions between 1405 AD and 1430 AD, reaching Somalia and probably Europe (France, Holland and Portugal).   In each trip, he led a troop of 27,800 people on more than 300 ships. In each trip, 62 major ships of this fleet were employed, each about 475 ft long and 193 ft wide, holding 1000 people per ship, dwarfing Columbus’ Santa Maria (75 ft x 25 ft) more than 6-fold.  

The countries and territories covered and recorded in the official Ming history includes Java, Sumatra, Vietnam, Siam, Cambodia, Philippines, Ceylon, Bangladesh, India, Yemen, Arabia, Somalia, Mogadishu.  As a clear demonstration of his travel to Africa, among the souvenirs he brought back to China were the giraffes and lions, indigenous animals of Africa.  

The official history also mentioned “Franca” (which was the territory to describe today’s France and Portugal) and Holland. The Hollanders were described as tall people with red hair and beard, long nose, and deep eye sockets. If he did meet with the Europeans in their native countries, then the only way would be to navigate around the Cape of Good Hope before the Suez Canal was a throughway.  

Menzies indicates that he has found sunken ships of Zheng He’s fleet in the Carribeans, but he refuses to disclose the location until he publishes his book.  

Unfortunately, Zheng He’s magnificent accomplishment was later targeted by other courtiers as wasteful.  Most of his records were destroyed and building of ships with more than 3 masts were considered crimes punishable by death. So, a large part of his excursion has no reports.  

In Africa near Kenya today, there are tribes that are clearly Asian-looking. They also consider themselves as the descendants of  Zheng He’s crew.

Menzies book is fiction.....nothing else. Zheng He never reached Europe or America.
