Again,if Chinese do it(and spitting sunseedflowers on the sidewalk ain't a rare thing) nobody cares.If two foreigners do it,it's suddenly a question of national pride and honour.

That's exactly what "Yang Rui" called "Foreign trash"

but bringing up sunflower seed spitting and causing a big storm over it shows Chinese people small mindedness and stupidity on a whole new level.


I don't think people were outraged because of the action of spitting on the floor - local do that all the time. But when those proles then were stating that "here is China", it's like they're saying: "China is dirty anyway, people have bad behaviour, so we just act normal - you don't have the right to care". That is so increadibly arrogant that it gives me shivers down my spine.

But of course, the fact that this small incident made it to the news also shows the dedication of the Chinese government to foster xenophobia in China - another issue that is greatly concerning me.
