Your opinion is one-sided!

At first,lying is common all over the world,you can not say that is the character of Chinese.In my opinion,most people who like to lie just be cheated by themselves.
On the other hand,we must take it into account why so many people like to lie.At the most time,their purpose to lying is simple,they only want to protect themselves from the harm.

many 1/2 bred chinese

why are chinese smart? because there are many 1/2 among them.

china is a multi-nationality country. The history of china witnesses a process of communication and co-existance of different nationalities. ppl with different ethnical backgrounds have the freedom to get married.thus, there have never been any  root for racism in China, and the yardstick to judge a person is not his nationality but his virtue

gracelee, amanda and others this subject is being discussed

On Living in China, sub category Culture, Canadaguy has explained the situation more clearly.

Some people see what is culturally accepted as lies. I am trying to understand it myself. In the other discussion, we are not referring to it as lies. I think it may help you understand this subject better is you read it.

I don't like using the word "lies" and as it comes out, it is done for a number of reasons. Check it out.

We have to ignore those who get all excited about this and invite them to calm down a little so they can start to understand the other cultures. It's a complicated subject.

not so complicated spiritrace

Live here for a while and you'll understand. We don't really care WHY, it's just damned annoying.
BTW that high / low context culture thread is one of the best I've ever seen.
