Simple answer to your question, because they are all white, despite not being native English speak ...



Again a foul racist attack not burdened by any insight in reality. The majority of Whites are legally employed. There are many others who are not White and get hired because they are cheap substitutes. Foreign is foreign. Many of them get shafted by their Chinese slave-drivers: once hired and having done a few classes they get shoved out. THey then will find that they have done the employer's bidding: TO recruit paying fools for English lessons advertised for with the help of a foreign face.

Remember UYA? A yellow foreigner who cheated Chinese Immigration, the PSB and many students.

No, you tried, but failed to demolsh my point that because Chinese parents and students love a white face in class, recruiters give them just that,  unqualfied white tourists, including many non native English speakers, like Russians, etc.

You have told us where you derive your "information" from and thus have disqualified yourself as an informer. You base your racist beliefs on pure gossip and on your own preconceived ideas.

It is a fact that Chinese English teachers are unfit for their jobs and anyone can replace them profitably for the learners. This the Chinese parents realise but they are not educated enough to ask for a more effective teaching approach. THey think any foreigner can do the job and as a result, they settle for wehat they get. In many cases, they get well-qualified Western English teachers and in many other cases they get teachers without the quals desired. Still, being a foreign face is often more helpful than being a trained but unsuitable Chinese teacher because Chinese teachers fail what foreign teachers cannot fail: To speak the language.

Incidentally, a good many of these foreign teachers are not even Westerners. But you wouldn't recognise that and you wouldn't pick on Asian English teachers in China... ... because you are a racist.

"Unsubstantiated claims"?  You are pretending not to know the fact which is well known throughout China, there is a strong desire for whites, not only as teachers, but also as models to stand around exhibiitiont stalls to attract visitors, or to parade down the streets half naked!

I refute your claim. You have only CCTV "insights" and gossip to offer. That Whites would in theory be preferred, that is possible but that they are the only ones hired is a lie. Why wouldn't anyone believe native English speakers are Whites? Likewise, we all assume that the best native Chinese speakers are yellow-skinned.

"The majority of Whites are legally employed"?
That is in your imagination; the contrary is true, the vast majority are illegally employed because they can't qualify for the foreign expert certificate, not being holders  of  foreign degrees.  They break the law moonlighting as English teachers while on tourist visa

Again we are exposed to a barrage of Mr Peeisms and Pooisms straight out of his personal treasure trove of gossip and black humour jokes.

Does the skin of the teachers matter? I think not. The culprit is the Chinese hirer.

And here you err again: These foreign teachers get hired because they already have a  foreign expert certificate"?

Please, study the relevant sections of the laws. No one gets a foreign expert cert unless they meet stringent criteria. I possess a FEC and it was not easy to come by; in point of fact every employer wanted to keep it in their custody and most foreign teachers never see theirs.
