"Negative Westerners are the reason all of us are given a bad name in the media"

So the media is  ...

I never said that media is blameless. What I'm saying is this. You are in a foreign country by your own choice!!! NOBODY held as gun to your head and forced you to come here, you did so by your own  choice.

Respect the culture and ways of doing things, if you find it too much to handle, then just leave, instead of bringing a negative attitude to the table, or snapping and have it caught on camera and posted all over the internet.

U have been asked on numerous occasions by Chinese people if all foreigners think they can just walk around and accost any girl they see fir (Remember the 2012 debacle with the British guy and the Chinese girl in Beijing??)

The way we carry ourselves in public is mostly the way Chinese people classify ALL foreigners.

I think it is because 'the west' is synonymous with America, and America is idolized. Thus anyone perceived to be from the west are treated much better than, say a visitor from any Asian country.

You are so right. Don't you think that's a shame? When a people look down on their own kind and wo ...

Worse: why is America so revered? A country barely out of her infancy, a violent society melded by other cultures yet denying other cultures their due, aggressive and... I'd better shut up.
I agree with you wholeheartedly that any country/society should be at most equal to patriots of every country.
