OK, you asked me to comment on this thread, so I'll look past your mindless racism (you think 'gweilos' is a polite word?) to ask: why do YOU think they asked that? Longzhou's answer seems reasona ... But what's your opinion?
thepeop, you asked what my opinon is.
Well, my opinion is that I do follow the western media, watched their movies (even if they not in English) and documentary.
There is no doubt that the western media are not always objective in their reporting, especially when it comes to foreign news on China, N Korea and the Middle East. But I believe that when it comes to reporting news of their own, they are very much more truthful and honest. If not, they will be hit back by their local audience.
Like the TV movie, there is a point and a message that the film wanted to drive across. Of course, as a movie, it has it "dramatic effect" but I don't thinking asking "Are you American" was that dramatic effect. The way the raids were carried out, so smoothly and perfectly, and the heroine managed to hold the kingpin at gunpoint were probably dramatic but not the others. That's why I like the movie and religiously followed it to the end. The question "Are you American" was asked only at the last part.
My point really is that I see a lot more honesty in your own western media/movies than in people like you. Especially when it comes to negative things about your people and kind, you are always so defensive to the extent of even shamelessly lying.
I am shocked and very disappointed by your gweilos' behaviour. You are always fending off and deflecting the real issue by comparing with the Chinese. Maybe, you defend human trafficking .... I do not know. But it, of course, is big business in USA.
Why can't you be more honest? You're afraid the Chinese will be biased towards you?
