Nobody likes such remarks. We are constantly called derogatory things here like anglos, white trash and so on.
You learn to grow a thick skin and fight the bastards back. If we sit by and allow such things, we are equally as guilty of allow the perpetuation of such racism but beware because to them, we are the racists, not them!

The difference is that westerners learn Chinese culture for knowledge and they have no intention to become like Chinese. It's the other way round for Chinese learning English.

"101%" lol.

"soon the Chinese are going to find out that opening the door to wide for western foreigners they will pay a price."

The best of China has been seen when it has been open and not closed. When it has been closed in the past it has stagnated or caused atrocities like Mao's reign to run unchecked. Being open to the world allows one to learn from others and contribute to the learning of others. Much of China's success in the past 30 years has come directly as a result of opening up and alllowing foreigners in to invest and spread technology and learning. If you want to go back to the stagnation or the starvation and terror of being closed then too bad because I think most of China doesn't.

The importance on learning another language is as important as learning geography or history etc. It opens your world view and allows you to think and appreciate things differently.
