African Migrants Rioted In China Today After a Man Died In Police Custody

Adam Taylor, Business Insider, June 19, 2012


According to Chinese sources cited in Western media, more than 100 migrants in the city of Guangzhou held a protest that stopped traffic today. The protests reportedly began after an African migrant died in police custody on Monday following a disagreement over the sale of an electric bicycle.

Images posted on Weibo paint a chaotic scene. This photo, posted by @ndgz, shows the scale of the protest:

Another photo, posted by @onccnews seems to show migrants fighting with police officers:


The incident in Guangzhou seems evidence of that growing [anti-foreigner] sentiment—Tea Leaf Nation writes that the reaction on Weibo has been “overwhelmingly” in favor of the police.

Guangzhou is China’s third largest city with over 12 million inhabitants and 200,000 African immigrants—another report released today found that the city ranked poorly in a recent Chinese City Life Quality Report.

  • The brutal Chinese can’t control Africans?  Then I suppose nobody can.  Good luck with that Africa project, Beijing.

    • Rocky Bass,

      Tiananmen Square didn’t start with tanks either. These brothers don’t know whom they are messing with. Should be fun to watch, sounds like the country has sided with the police too. Being black in China might not be a good thing real soon.

      •  200k Bellcurviuses out of a population of 12 million figures to 1.7%.  Most of us should be so lucky.  Yet, even at a measly 1.7%, they make trouble.

        A theory which I’ve heard about Bellcurvius is that they’re more dangerous in numbers than in raw percentages.  A school with 500 students that is half white and half black won’t be as bad as a school with 5,000 students that is 80% white and 20% black, because 1,000 blacks at the large school is more than 250 blacks at the small school.

       If this had happened in Russia then I would have TOTALLY given up hope of anyone controlling them.

    I resided in China for 2 years.  One could walk out at night without fear.  Yes, there was crime, and some reported stolen mobile phones or a bicycle, and I was warned of pick-pockets near the train station.  But generally, it was crime free.
    Instead of importing illegal immigrants in the US, perhaps we should import some Chinese police.  Perhaps some judges too.  They have the death penalty in China and use it.  A new, popular TV show has the anchor interviewing criminals about to be executed.  Women too.
    China has its problems, but violent crime is not a big one.  

  • I can’t wait for the ‘civil rights’ marches.

    In Birmingham, they only used hoses, dogs on leashes, and tear gas with no deaths if I recall correctly (white people showing great restraint). If such marches occur, they should make Tiananmen Square look like a Sunday social.

  • Puggg

    It’s the same all over the world. Blacks riot over some police action against a black that somehow goes awry.

  • Where ever blacks go, America, England, France,  Sweden, Haiti or Africa, blacks bring chaos, anarchy  and mayhem. And the civilization is destroyed.

    • Rocky Bass,

       They do this wherever they are allowed to do this. The whites beat back the forest, and it’s animals everywhere civilization now is. For some twisted reason we have chosen to have blacks around as decorations, this decision could change in a minute. Blacks are not capable of destroying a civilization, not unless whites are complacent in it. Could baboons wreck NewYork? (maybe bad analogy)

    • Black behavior is universal.

    • libertarian1234

      The least intelligent, least successful people on the planet today are blacks.

      That they would emigrate to a brutal communist dictatorship reveals how much they need someone to take care of them, because they can’t take care of themselves.

      I wonder how long it will be before they start demanding to be represented in the Chinese government, and given AA in order to qualify for college,  then demand AA grading and certification when they get there.

      Too, I’m wondering if they’ve leveled the charge of racism and hate against the population or the government.

  • China is colonizing Africa to get their minerals, big mistake. If I was China I would say  you can keep your minerals I just don’t want the  TNB  hassle.

  • Rocky Bass,

    Wait and see how this is dealt with, as I assure you it will be DEALT WITH. 🙂

  • mikejones91

    Negative pathology’s aside, you really have to envy their group think mentality. Probably the fist time anyone has said this but WE could learn a thing (not 2) from these Africans on coming together as ONE. 

  • mikejones91

    So this whole “black rioting/looting” business doesn’t just happen In America/Europe? I understand why it happens here. They have grievances, understandably so. But China…

    •  It happens here because we tolerate it. If black rioting and looting always resulted in dozens of blacks being shot dead by the police, it would come to a screeching halt.

  • ncpride

    It will surprise me to no end if the Chinese tolerate this for long without using deadly force to subdue them. They have before.

  • Athling

    I can tell you from first-hand knowledge — the Chinese do not have any affection for Africans. Frankly I am shocked that the government has allowed 200k of the Nubians into their country. Many years ago I heard about Africans being rounded up and promptly deported. Their crime? Making sexual advances at female Chinese college students.

    The government has made a grave error (like every other nation has) by allowing Africans into their homeland. Perhaps they were allowed in for possible organ harvest or some similar usage?

    • mikejones91

      The Chinese (like the Russians) have NOT been “indoctrinated” like The West. There is NO reason NOT to tolerate their antics. Therefore, they will be dealt with! 

      • Anan7

        I think you meant there is no reason to tolerate their antics.  Double negatives can be confusing!

    •  At the Beijing Olympics (was that eight years ago, or four?), police officials went around to all tavern owners within a few-mile radius of the Olympic Stadium and village, before the games started. They told the owners, “While the Olympics are in progress, you DO NOT serve blacks or Mongolians, on pain of HEAVY fines!” Naturally the mainstream media in this country buried that story, as there was no way that the Chinese could be intimidated or shamed into walking back that edict. “Racists” must not, in the liberal mindview, be allowed to get away with standing up for their own race!

  • Maybe the Chinese should round up a few hundred of the troublemakers, herd them into a movie theater, and play the video of the final military assault on Tiananmen Square.  If that’s how they treat their own race/citizens at a non-violent sit-in, it might give the Africans something to ponder the next time they throw a temper tantrum.

    • ThomasER916

      You’re asking an African to think about the consequences of their actions. If this were possible there would be little reason for Amren to exist at all.

  • IstvanIN

    The good thing about China is that the Africans can be disappeared if the authorities decide to do so.

  • Detroit_WASP

    Reminds me of my hometown….DETROIT.

    You can take the man out of the jungle but….

  • Sloppo

    Perhaps the most interesting thing about this story is that NOBODY calls the Africans “Chinese”.  If this were the US or a European country, they would be called Americans teens, or British youths, etc.  China hasn’t sacrificed its racial identity on the altar of political correctness.  They’ve enforced a “one child policy” on their own citizens.  If they don’t expel the Africans in their country, I wouldn’t be surprised if they come up with a “no child policy” for them.  It will be interesting to see what measures they use in this situation.

  • klee55

    In the US, the official black population is about 15%, but the prison inmates are more than 50% blacks. I am not racist, I am just reading from statistics.
    I am concerned about the street security now in Guangzhou. Unless China wants to earn a few more gold medals in Olympics in boxing, track & field, and basketball, otherwise, the national academic & other achievement will be brought down by this ethnic group in the future when they assimilate in the society. I think China should curb the influx of blacks in the country.

    •  Please stop with the “I am not racist” business. If you’re here, your computer’s IP address has been detected and stored. You have expressed an anti-black attitude in a publicly-accessible forum.  In the eyes of some faceless bureaucrat, you ARE a “racist.”

      In for a penny, in for a pound. Welcome aboard!

  • Natassia

    Hahahaha! Let the Chinese taste what it’s like for us white folk!

    • mikejones91

      Black invasion is NOTHING you want to wish on to  ANY other nation. That’s just cruel.

      • Natassia

        Invasion? Ha. More like invitations. If they were invaders, the Chinese government would have removed them.

      • ThomasER916

        No, I do wish this on the Chinese. You see, the Chinese need to feel the sting of Jewish Media when they begin their segregation of blacks. The Chinese need to get a taste of Jewish propaganda and hypocrisy. After this happens, whites won’t be alone. We’ll have the Chinese turn their cameras on the Jews, exposing them, raising awareness, and giving the West an alternative media that even Amren would censor.

  • Epiminondas

    I don’t imagine the Chinese, with no colonial history or associated guilt trip, will tolerate too much of this.  Should be fun to watch this develop.

  • Here’s a little advice for the African “migrants”: Watch your step — very carefully. You’re not dealing with White-guilt ridden American authorities here. The Chinese police won’t hesitate to come down on you, very brutally, if you give them much provocation. Oh, and, by the way: East Asians don’t like you blacks, anyway. And nobody’s telling them that they should feel guilty for NOT liking you. That’s OUR ethnic hang-up — not theirs.

  • ” The protests reportedly began after an African migrant died in police custody on Monday following a disagreement over the sale of an electric bicycle.”

    They did succeed in one respect. They now have their first ‘civil rights’ martyr. That’s the first step to perpetual victimhood.

  • Sherman_McCoy

    100 “migrants.”  100 bullets.  Problem solved.

  • KenelmDigby

    Blacks do not seem to realise the elementary fact that once you voluntarily decide (which they certainly have done) to place yourself at the hospitality of strangers, strangers who are very, very different from you, who are thousands of miles from home, and who outnumber you thousands fold, then you are putting yourself in a very, very vulnerable position, and the best policy must be, surely, to keep your head down and say nothing. The obvious point is if the natives turn nasty, then the blacks have had it, well and truly had it.
     They would also be wise to realise that the Chinese are not soft-headed, soft- hearted sentimentalists (like modern Whites are), but tough, decisive and bold. Also be warned, that the Chinese when roused to anger is unremitting, wrathful and furious, someone not to be messed with at all.
      As for the Chinese, they are making a very, very big mistake indeed by allowing the nucleus of a settled African population (which is rapidly expanded), to establish itself on Chinese soil in the first place.

    • Michael C. Scott

      “As for the Chinese, they are making a very, very big mistake…”

      Exactly, as importing Africans has been a complete disaster everyplace else it has been tried.

  • If a black man dies in police custody and if it’s the fault of the police, real or imaginary

    The blacks will run amok.

  • Vildan

    I am quite surprised blacks dare to lift a hand against the Chinese. Chinese people are nowhere near as dumb/libtarded as most white people. I am sure they are going to drastically fight against black immigration now. At least I hope so…

    I really like this picture

  • Pastor Chuque Dupuis

    I think it would really help things if the Confucianists or the Daoists in China, like the Southern Baptists here in America, would elect a black president.

  • Most of the Africans in Guangzhou are from Nigeria. And they are NOT immigrants – they are migrants that go to China on business visas to purchase cheap goods for export back to Nigeria (and other African countries). Here is an article that explains this succinctly:–big-trouble-in-china-s-chocolate-city

    Although some of them overstay their visa and become defacto illegal immigrants, this doesn’t occur very often.

    The Chinese authorities will try to exercise restraint to prevent a bad situation (i.e., death of the fellow that was in police custody) from getting much worse. The Chinese government is very pragmatic: they don’t want to put their country in a bad light by mowing down a crowd of Africans. This would strain diplomatic ties between China and African countries, whose resources they need to fuel the Chinese economy.

    So the irony is that if an African and a Chinese person engaged in the exact same behavior, the Chinese guy would be in greater danger from the authorities than the African. The Chinese guy would be considered by the authorities to be “one of ours” to do with as it pleases. However, having the same attitude towards an African would jeopardize diplomatic relations with his home country.

    That being said, for the most part Chinese civilians do not like blacks. But they have no say in whether or not they enter China.

  • waking_up

    Have fun China. I suggest you stop importing them into China or you will be sorry.

  • Sherman_McCoy

    Ever been around the Frankfurt Hauptbahnhof?  Looks like little Ethiopia.

  • Wow! It looks like China has finally come to the realization that multiculturalism and diversity are a source “great strength!” What will they do with the newfound enrichment I wonder!

    Much like liberals and neocons kissing up to all these illegal mestizos.  Cheap labor and votes.

  • ThomasER916

    You forgot stupid.

    Being impulsive isn’t too much of a problem when you have genius. After all, that simply means you’ll venture with genius. The problem with blacks is they’re brutishly stupid AND impulsive. The two makes them a criminal race without parallel.
