And it is true. The west in many cases has been racist towards the Chinese. But everyone who is not "White" suffers from racism. There is no generalisation here. Not all "White" ...


You make it should like whites are the only ones that are racist, here are some facts.......Blacks are racist, Whites are racist and Chinese are racist.

Power shifting towards Africa, are you kidding me?     The future African power will be in the Chinese hands.

Power is shifting to East Asia now, then some power will shift to South Asia, then South America but most of the power will stay in East Asia in the future.

This is not true, Indonesian Chinese hold just 70% of private sector economy. Certainly not all of Indonesian economy.


Do you know how much the private sector economy is part of the Indonesian GDP.

Does it matter who owns what, Chinese investment provides jobs which is what does matter?

No, I don't know, but Indonesia's 'vital' economic interest as oil exploration, power generation, postal sevice, water system, electricity etc etc are firmly controlled by the government.

The main export of Indonesia still oil and natural gas, a government controlled assets.

It doesn't matter. In fact it's a good thing.

But the statement of Indonesian Chinese controlling 70% of nation's economy served finely the anti-China elements, an excuse for the underprevilege and poors to attack and rob the Chinese during social turbulences.

But in China, there's no such racist policy like 'Two Wongs don't make a White'!
Also there's no anti-semitism, Jewish people were welcome and assimilated.

Why Racism ?

As a resident in the US for 20 years, and as a student of Anglo Saxon culture, I can offer a definite answer to your question.

The longer you stay in a multinational society, the deeper you shall understand the racism. I would never understand it had I not left China, which is a single or mono-cultured society. European culture, Anglo-Saxon culture as part of it and a dominant one, is A Racist Culture.

This fact or reality, unfortunately, has been ignored and avoided in Chinese Universities, shunned by Chinese scholars. You, or we, were taught only about the glory sides of European culture, like the Enlightenment, the Renaissance, the Industrial Revolution, etc., etc.  In short, China's Confucian culture is unable or unwilling or incapable of dealing with what is the control, the dominance, the aggressiveness --------------the dark but very essential part of European culture.  

So you, or we, or the later generations, once step out the collage world,  shall be puzzled if not shocked to see the racism in the real world, be it blatant, tongue-in-cheek, or a softer bigotry.

Racism as a theory is much needed when one nation needs to mobilize its people to conquer, colonize another land. After all, to send people far away to a very strange land, to face a very alien culture and to confront a very foreign people, you need make them believe that the foreign people are worthless or inferior than you are!  This is a very effective tool to pep up a fighting spirit to drive other people out of the land, or be a dominant class if you can not drive them out(like Hong Kong). This is a basic reason that the racism, both as a theory and a practice, started and flourished in 18th and 19th century Europe----to conquer North America, Africa, Asia and Oceania.

So, in a plain sentence, what is the racism?------- The moment he sees you next to him, or see you in the same room with him, he would be very upset and angry. He could not stand it! He would not tolerate it!  Put it in this way: 150 years ago, he would mobilize his kind to drive you out of the room if he sees you in the room. Today, he probably would leave the room, or sit as far apart from you in the room, or fake a smile or hi to you, then keep a distance.

THE reason you see more and more racism-against-Chinese news reported in the Chinese newspaper now is because more and more Chinese going out and doing business/or studying in European, North American or Oceania countries. I need point it out to you, that Hong Kong and Taiwan news media did not report it as much, even though their students and businessman had contact 20 years earlier with the West.

I also need to point it out: you shall read or hear more of this. And the Chinese people is unprepared for this type of stuff.---------actually even the Chinese government is not prepared for it. One reason is because they are at government level. At this level, they encountered with or are surrounded with the Westerners who have less or concealed racial bigotry. But at the bottom line the racial bigotry is THE culprit for non-smooth China foreign relations with European or Anglo-Saxon countries. The reason they are “UNFRIENDLY” to China, or making up never-ending “China threat”  is that they are not comfortable with the Chinese. They want to exclude you out!
