Chinaâ€™s public getting more negative about the world – Global Public Square - CNN.com Blogs
The increased "hostility" can be viewed against the backdrops of global economic recessions, typically in EU and the US where protectionism regains momentum. That certainly impacts a few export oriented sectors in China. Meanwhile, in the ongoing US presidential elections both candidates / parties vie with each other by talking tough on China to woo certain constiuencies. The "hostility" inevitably grows reciprocally when the media airs such anti-China sentiments instantly.
As for India, most Chinese AFAIK, remain indifferent like before. Hence don't see how such a decline in "positive" opinions comes about.
The rest of the world, that is a lot of countries.
Chinese public opinion? What does it matter for in China's policy formulation ?
However, I am interested in Pan-Indian survey and want to see what percentage of Indians really know what is the actual dispute India has with China.
this is due to propangda of CCP's papers i read a news in those saying that indian women look UGLY and buy gold to hide their dark skin and uglyness
Good for China to be hostile to all.
I am sure they will enjoy having the whole world hostile to it!
Perfect example of indian style discrimination against dark skin!
In China, having a dark skin doesn't mean ugly!
Dude, unlike you people have access to free media.. Just doing a google tells us the real story..
Tinted prejudice in China - CNN.com
DURING my stay in China all I ever experienced were racial taunts, blatant discrimination and general loathing from the majority" says mixed-race Canadian teacher David Szykulski,
"Han Chinese people are the most openly xenophobic people I have ever met."
Sociology Professor Yu Hai, who has studied at Fudan University for 17 years, believes a long-standing Chinese tradition of discrimination according to "status" has created an atmosphere conducive to racial prejudice
Yu believes dark-skinned foreigners are likely to face more obstacles than whites, as many Chinese see them as inferior
Racism in China
Don't know about dark skin, but Chinese do think their small eyes aren't anything to be proud of!
well, Chinese and India are working hard, making more and more money from these countries, we should like them, but Japs, the abnormal species in the world, Chinese indeed do not have to like them.
Dark skin, small eyes certainly are something Chinese feel proud of, or I could say most east Asians agree with me on that.
But Chinese affections for lighter skin has nothing to do with racism. We prefer light skin only because we think white skin is better looking, not because we think lighter skin means superiority. It is like all males prefer big boobs.
Chinese people talk about skin in their daily life, that is not some kind taboo as it is in many other countries.
I know it sounds offensive to many foreigners when they hear Chinese talking about their skin colors. But please understand, we not being racists.
In China, having dark skin is not ugly, but the ugliness lies in the discrimination that follows.
It has been already discussed in this forum!
Actually, they are very keen to have what is known as double eyelids.
They are also in the game of silicon implants for larger breasts.
I, however, think that the Chinese girls look good as it is without the surgery.
Indeed, skin colour is not about racism. It is just about aesthetics. They felt it in the same way in the USA and people called that racism.
That is so evident for all to see out here too!
The Canadian teacher David Szykulski's, who is of mixed-race, observation is not quite misplaced.
But then one has to move on because that is life!
Maybe big boobs is also about racism. But who knows, Ray may prefer someone with no boobs.
Yes, that is why I said that Chinese girls are interesting to observe.
I do believe that what God has forgotten should not be filled with cotton
I think the whole world over, people prefer lighter skinned individuals over dark skinned ones. Especially in societies where dark skinned people are the majority, lighter skinned individuals are often sought after as a "prize", hence they end up being cast as heroes in movies, get special treatment as strangers or extra points when it comes to marriage.
I think the human preference for light skin is probably an evolutionary trait to spot "clean" or "hygienic" looking partners or mates, although obviously dark skin has nothing to do with cleanliness. Just as you mentioned, the preference men have for women with bigger boobs because in evolutionary terms, men may have been programmed to look for mates with larger stores of breast milk for their offspring-its only recently been proven that breast size has nothing to do with milk production capacity.
Do Chinese people prefer lighter skin? Certainly we do. Do we believe lighter skin reflects innate superiority? No, we don't.
In fact, most east asians, or even southeast asians share the same affection for white skin color. One doesn't have to do a survey to understand that, you can even read it from random news article. Take the article below for example.
Do I need to post more? You deeply prejudiced people.
Ray needs to watch some Chinese or Japanese porn.
East Asians are obsessed with boobs! Even more so than Indians.
