The food that is left is usually collected to be sent to farms to feed animals. They don't simply waste it like whites do during their regular food fights

I hope this is just a phase. After so many years of austerity and deprivation, i see this happening in overseas Chinese in Philippines & Thailand in the 1960s. The same happened in Taiwan and Hong Kong Malaysia and Singapore in 1970s. Korean would also have ostentatious banquets in their Gaesing parties in the 1980s. In Japan my father was entertained in closed door Geisha parties and luxurious ryokan bath resorts. You should see the opulence of the Russian oligarchs when they entertain in London, or in the Caribbean even today..Hope it will come to pass. I believe it is an delayed expression or self validation that hunger, humiliation, and suffering is over.
The other element is the Chinese psyche itself. Everyone wanted to be treated the best like an emperor. So the best is served to give FACE. Habits and societal norms can change. Like in Hong Kong when rubbish was all over the place in the late 70s, now it is clean.  Likewise, many have refuse to take shark fins soup even in North America.

We can change this one at a time by starting with ourselves.

What a startling comparison! Hope more people become aware of the fact that Africans are suffering from starvation when they are extravagantly wastng their food.
