China is probably one of the most unequal countries in the world, where guanxi is extremely important.


In most societies in the world the people who advance in society have the benefit of "guanxi". Even in my own family my mother was disinherited because she married a man considered to be below her social status.

they look weird, talk weird & behaves awkwardly


Some of the foreigners certainly look "weird". However, there is weird and 'weird' and a large number of Chinese youths have very weird haircuts these days.

I am sure there are foreigners who could be regarded as talking weird as is revealed in this forum but some of the Chinese posters can be positively creepy when they get out a thesaurus and string big words together in meaningless exchanges. Does anybody ever marry them?

Not sure about the behaving "awkwardly" - that hasn't come across.

You know, people who have to live on social welfare can't afford to leave the US. You are actually meeting the more capable ones....just not the most capable.


I have met a number of very capable (Professors) Americans and Chinese Americans living in China but they were all retired or semi retired.

It is difficult to create a definition of a person based on a geographical area. Our government's policies towards other nations show us in a bad light and our media fill us with false illusions of our own self importance.
