A Spanish person plays the role of a buffoonish Chinese waiter dressed in a Tang Dynasty suit and ...

That's actually a Manchu Qing Dynasty-style getup with the skullcap/pigtail and jacket.   Chinese open themselves up for mockery by promoting countless movies and TV dramas with actors in this type of buffoonish and unappealing attire.  The skullcap/pigtail souvenir item is made in China and can be found in Chinatown shops all over the world.  And it's a known fact that dog and cat meat is served in many restaurants in China.

"A Spanish person plays the role of a buffoonish Chinese waiter dressed in a Tang Dynasty suit and ...
For about 20 years, the only roles that western actors (who spoke fluent Chinese) could get on Chinese TV programmes were all based on one premise "the buffonnish white foreigner who the Chinese all make fun of"


It's a reaction to the western depiction of buffoonish or sinister Chinese caricatures which has been going on since the 1800s.

Oh well that makes it OK then ....

Guess it's OK with you when westerners mock Asians and other ethnicities but not the other way around.

from AP
  1. ........Voters in the tiny Spanish village of Castrillo Matajudios, whose name means "Camp Kill Jews," overwhelmingly decided Sunday that it's time to change the name their town has had for nearly four centuries.......The "Kill Jews" part of the name dates from 1627, more than a century after a 1492 Spanish royal edict ordering Jews to become Catholics or flee the country. Those who remained faced the Spanish inquisition, with many burned at the stake.

Racism goes back a long way in Spanish history.

You are very thin-skinned.

Chinese persons whom I know personally in Madrid got a good laugh out ...

If you enjoy and be proud to be called a dog, that's your gift of life, most Chinese people don't appreciate the insult.
After the Anglos, we regard dogs are the lowest form of animal ranking

Frankly speaking, the Chiense I saw in Madrid did not leave me with the impression that they were absolutely law-abiding. How many of them have entered Spain legally?

Well, I know at least one who has.....

A large number are preoccupied finding ways to launder money, avoid import taxes and duties, and under-pay workers (normally newer Chinese immigrants from their home villages) to be bothered watching TV shows.
