mmm, I do not believe that.

According to my own experience, I met a foreigner from USA before, and till now we are still friend ,corresponding to each other. He told me that most foreign news papers and TV stations are the true instigators. Different people have different opinions, many of our news agencies do not cover or report the true stories as we hope, They for their evil purposes , propagandize their make-ups. I do not believe their stories. But I can not get the first-handed information myself. So I'd like to say we are all the victims of these pieces of news
Most Foreigners arenot the beneficiaries of our uprisings.
Be rational please.

Are you truly suggesting that there is a place for prejudice and hatred in the world?

Also, what makes you think I am an 'anglo'?

Thank you though, your reply to my post is an excellent illustration of the meaning of xenophobia.

Define, foreigner.
To Chinese there seems to be this mindset of 'us' and 'them' only.
Chinese and non Chinese.
And if you are Chinese it's O.K. to be racist and xenophobic, if you're not Chinese it's not O.K.
Is that how it is gdrabbit?
