I am wondering why and how people are racist against Asians, esp the Chinese.



Ms Wang (the complainant) is only an opportunist who jumped on the moving bandwagon to denounce those who don't pay her as well as others get paid. It is very trendy to use the word "racist" under such circumstances.

But she has no strong point. In the movie business actors and actresses get paid not for their skin colour or their family names. They get paid for their notoriety and to some extent, talents.

To better understand this you need to take a peek at sports. Think of the football clubs that poach football players from one another and ruin the finances of everyone in the process. Whether your club is Manchester United or Guangzhou Evergrande, your club pays top yen for top guns, usually foreign.

And I don't think the movie people are a bunch of starvers. Each of them gets paid too well irrespective of their ethnicity.

If Ms Wang does not get paid top yen it very unlikely is because of her race. During the current Trump Dynasty there will be many more such frivolous complaints because it is oh so faddish to make them while you can and get an audience.

To understand why some actors or actresses get paid less than others, turn your attention to the football clubs of the world. Huge amounts of money are paid for transfer sums to buy the services of top talents. These transfer sums will one day bust football as we know it but at the moment they make a lot of players extremely rich. The beneficiaries are less and less often Whites. Talent comes from Brazil, Africa and elsewhere. China is a big financier of such transactions too because it hardly has any local talent. Why should actors and actresses not be paid according to market rules?

These actors and actresses get paid too well anyway (as are professional athletes).

Movie workers get paid much like football players are paid. Football players command top yen if they are members of successful clubs. THey get poached and multi- million yen amounts change hands making everyone rich (and in the long run bankrupting football clubs). Chinese clubs pay top yen too to get foreign football talents. Are they racist for doing this?
