Right, right, I'm racist because I point out the possibility that there is racism in China. Don't you accuse all whites of being racist? Doesn't that make you racist? Oh, right, canchin is perfect... sorry. |
How is saying "Cantonese" insulting? Fine--Guangdonghua.
Southeast Asians--Vietnamese, Thais, Laotians, Cambodians... traditional Chinese culture valued pale skin over darker skin, and some of that continues to this day (all this soap to make skin "mei bai"--pretty and white). And it's reflected by judgment of these darker-skinned Asians as being slightly less than the Chinese. Never mind the blacks (and what have Africans ever done to China?)--many Chinese parents don't want their daughters to date black men.
As for examples of racism built into Guangdonghua, I can't recall them specifically, since I don't speak it, but we were given several examples in a class on Chinese language, culture, and society.
Canchin, someday you will be forced to come to term with the fact that there is racism all around the world. No one country is worse or better than the other. And someday you will realize that calling someone else "racist" doesn't help you make your point.
