  1. Tourism from the mainland has boomed as the nation's economy has grown and rules forcing visitors to join tour groups have been eased. Some 40.8 million mainland visitors came last year.

By political convention and general usage, HK is not mainland China.

Hong Kong is a territory of mainland China.
Beijing should send in a team of assassins and take out the foreign troublemakers.
Show no mercy to these China haters.

I think the thread's title is somewhat misleading.

They don't "hate" Mainlanders - they dislike th ...

I disagree, the title is not misleading. The idea of communist manners is the one misleading. There is no such thing as communist manners. Does it mean all those countries under communist rulers before are just like the mainlanders? I don't think so.

Yes, mainlanders are hated not just because of their attitudes but envy of their successes. Mainlanders are so daring that they will venture into any business ideas, in any country, that local business people won't dare or even thought about doing. Many are very successful that local people often associate their rapid success with illegal activities. Overseas Chinese who have gone to China in the 90's and before that will never have imagined the rapid development of China. These overseas Chinese college degree holders will assume that they are better than those mainlanders who just entered/finished primary or secondary education. They will never accept they are inferior to the mainlanders and will make wild assumptions re the mainlanders.

Arrogance and discrimination plays a large part in Hongkongers becoming uncompetitive vs the mainlanders. It has been known for decades that Honkongers discriminate other nationalities, except whites and Japanese. Same goes for the Japanese who thinks they are the best and next are the whites. The rest for them are rubbish.

China is not perfect but to date, it lifted 600 million of its people out of poverty. But what is your government doing for its people? Using the China/Chinese scapegoat for the suffering of its people and shifting the blame to China? Using freedom of speech, human rights, environmental protection and democracy to feed your brain? How about help in feeding your daily essential needs?

I think it's a beggar thy neighbor attitude that exists in HK. For a city that was colonized by the British, Hong Kong Chinese are caught in the middle between the West and China. Politically, the HK Chinese are neither "Chinese" nor British and so the best they could do to assuage their marginal identity is to engage in infantile behaviour such as their obsession with mindless entertainment, their ideology of crass commercialism and their worship of landlords and celebrities who are the de facto royalty of Hong Kong. Given their inferior status in the Western World as colonial subjects of the British Empire, the Hong Kong Chinese can only feel superior by manifest racism against mainland visitors, indonesian maids, white expats, etc.
