When Baltimore Shook with Anger, Here’s What China Saw

Viola Rothschild, Foreign Policy, May 5, 2015

Several days ago, a Chinese friend and I were discussing the protests in Baltimore that erupted in response to the death of resident Freddie Gray in connection with his April 12 arrest by city police officers, who have since been charged with crimes including manslaughter and murder. My friend said he was first surprised that such a level of civil unrest could occur in the United States. But “when I saw that all the people protesting and getting arrested were black people,” he added, “it made more sense. That would never happen with white people.” (I was unable to convince him otherwise.)

My friend is well educated and is, in most respects, a reasonable person. But like many other Chinese, he has a facile preconceived set of notions about black people that stem from a historical lack of contact. There’s little or no effort here to distinguish between Africans, African-Americans, African-Europeans, Afro-Carribbeans, or recent African migrants to China. They all fall under a homogenous umbrella–hei ren, or “black person”–attended by a variety of sweeping stereotypes, including a proclivity for violence and crime.

Consistently criticized by the United States for its human rights abuses, China seems to be taking pleasure in pointing out American hypocrisy. On April 30, the Communist Party’s major news organ, the People’s Daily, published a scathing commentary. “Each time, when the hatreds old and new of U.S. racial contradictions boil over,” the article read, “it clearly tells the world that the declaration ‘all are born equal’ in this so-called ‘field of dreams’ still has yet to take root.” Naturally, there is no mention of China’s own issues with ethnic tensions and cultural discrimination, from cracking down on the Muslim Uighur minority in Xinjiang to persecuting Buddhist monks in Tibet.

More interesting than the column itself was the spate of revealing and troubling responses from Chinese netizens that it generated. (As a general rule, only aging party members actually read People’s Daily.) Netizen commentary to the (relatively boilerplate) Baltimore reporting on the major online news portals, from NetEase, to Sina News, to QQ News was overwhelmingly negative, and often downright ugly. While comment sections are inherently polarizing and generally only attract people eager to express strong opinions, the sheer number of posts and the amount of support they garnered in likes and shares indicate that the comments reflect, to some degree, wider cultural attitudes.

I currently live in Jinhua, a prefecture-level city of 5.3 million in central China, on a Fulbright grant researching African students-entrepreneurs in China. Most of my research contacts are Africans who study in greater Zhejiang province while also working in the nearby trade cities of Yiwu, which has China’s second-largest African population, and Guangzhou, which has the largest. They tell me they encounter a wide array of responses when it comes to the color of their skin. These fall on a spectrum ranging from awkward curiosity–requests to touch their hair are relatively common–to overt racism.

What I saw online was broadly consistent with my findings in the field. The majority of netizen comments focused on the race of the protestors, not the underlying reasons for the protests, or the fact that they occurred Stateside. And they were nasty. More than one user chalked the behavior up to “black people being black people,” while posts referring to “black devils” were not hard to find. One user complained that black people “lack self-discipline and family values,” adding, “this group is pouring into China. I hope the government will take steps to prevent this.”

A growing number of black people–in particular, traders from African countries–are indeed moving into China. Guangzhou, a massive city in the country’s south, houses Asia’s largest African population. According to local officials in Guangzhou, 16,000 Africans legally resided in the city in 2014. Experts estimate the total number of Africans living in Guangzhou–legally and illegally–lies somewhere between 20,000 and 200,000. Debate is fierce about just how many Africans live there–and no one knows how many Africans live in China overall–but few dispute that the steady influx of African immigrants into Guangzhou since the late 1990s has led to growing tension between local and African communities.

{snip}

Many comments on articles about the Baltimore protests mentioned these African immigrants, drawing an implicit connection between one and the other. Commenters called them “out of control,” and a “hidden danger to the future public safety of our country.” Another warned, “Black people love to make trouble.” There were far worse comments, not fit for print. Many were written out of a professed concern for Guangzhou. Although there are no available statistics for African crime in Guangzhou, crimes committed by foreigners tend to attract disproportionate media attention.

    >>>The majority of netizen comments focused on the race of the protestors, not the underlying reasons for the protests…

    The race of the rioters is the underlying reason, Ms. Rothschild.

    • Yeah, the REASON for the protest is BECAUSE they are BLACK.

      • ElComadreja

        Yes. It’s the reason for their violent proclivities, their inability to reason things out in a rational manner, their failure to think about long term consequences, their paranoia and sociopathic tendencies etc. etc. etc. Blacks throw a lifelong temper tantrum.

        • slobotnavich

          Well, your points certainly are valid to the extent that these tendencies contribute to their present situation. But what really did black Americans in once and for all was the Civil Rights Act of fifty years ago, which actually have them a type of privileged status. Prior to the passage of this monstrosity blacks had the same percentage of two parent families as whites, about 90%. Now many black kids don’t even know who their fathers are, as only about 20% of them live in a two parent family. The evolving welfare system of the Sixties provided a strong incentive for black not to work, to live off the welfare system. Liberals, overwhelmingly Democrats, destroyed the black family and permanently rendered them third class citizens and the dubious status of being the criminal class of the nation.

          • ElComadreja

            I grew up around blacks in the 50’s and early 60’s. They were no great shakes then either but the Snivel Rights Act took a bad situation and made it infinitely worse.

          • slobotnavich

            Haw! Snivel Rights Act. Good one, gotta remember it!

    • slobotnavich

      Truly, there is nothing so hotly denied as a thoroughly self-evident but unpleasant truth.

  • It turns out that Viola’s friend was spot-on about Bongostanis.

    • Usually Much Calmer

      She says of him, ‘But like many other Chinese, he has a facile preconceived set of notions about black people that stem from a historical lack of contact.’ But he can see the forest from that vantage point, whereas she is confused by trees.

      • Tim_in_Indiana

        The reality is that he has a realistic set of notions about black people that stem from a historical lack of brainwashing and enforced diversity training.

        • Jacobite2

          Gee, I think it’s still agreed that Southerners, who lived up close and personal, had a, shall we say, less positive image of blacks than Northerners, who watched “Beulah” and “Amos ‘n Andy” on TV. Not that the Southies of Boston didn’t catch up real fast when they started ruining their kids’ schools.

      • A few weeks ago there was an article here on the contrast between conservative thinkers and liberal thinkers. Liberal thinkers were analytical, and conservative thinkers are holistic. Liberal thinking is more common in richer (White) countries and the holistic thinking is more common everywhere else. The article said that about 85% of the world’s people were holistic thinkers. that includes the Chinese. Yes, the Chinese student could see the whole picture while too many Whites are looking up close at the so-called “causes.” Forest through the trees.

        • Usually Much Calmer

          I must have missed it, John. Point me toward it, if you would?

          • Brakedust

            Doubtful that it ever existed.

      • Oldcorporal

        Lack of contact?! It was when I joined the Army at age 18, and spent three years having to deal with urban blacks, that I became what is now called a “racial realist.”

        • awb

          Marines. 1976. Same thing.

    • George Moriarty

      “Bongostanis” This word fails Spellcheck but I am pretty certain what it means. (Good one)

      • We can’t say n***** here, but we get to make up our own words. We might thus have the “Niggerian Centurion” as President. My wife made that one up; it seems I have been an amusing influence upon her. Being allowed to teach English to one’s wife after having gone criminally insane 16 years ago has its fun moments.

        • bilderbuster

          I recently saw the current US president referred to as” The African Despot”.

        • Ummm… that was two letter “g”s and not one; it also rhymes better that way.

          • DNA Explains It All

            NAPA works too.

        • ElComadreja

          HNIC is a good acronym.

    • ElComadreja

      He was dead on target from what I can see.

    • Light from the East

      Maybe I should invite him to walk down a street of Guangzhou black community and to get the direct experience of “black men”.

  • Tannenbaum

    The majority of netizen comments focused on the race of the protestors, not the underlying reasons for the protests…

    That’s because the race of the protestors was the underlying reason for the riots…er, protests, of course.

    We’ve come to a sad state when a communist propaganda rag comes closer to the truth that any of our “free, sophisticated, tolerant” american governmedia.

    • dd121

      Doesn’t matter where they are, if you know they’re black, you know they riot.

      • And steal, and rape, and murder, and burn, and vandalize, and destroy, and…

      • ElComadreja

        And it works for them since instead of crushing these uprisings everyone wrings their hands and throws more money at them. Sixty years of appeasement has taught America nothing about the black plague.

    • Communism hasn’t been nearly as harmful as liberalism. Funny how the Chinese, under Communism have more freedom of speech in regards to race, than the “free” Europeans do.

      • Weisheit77

        Communism has been a double edged sword in many ways. Have you ever been to the former East Block? It’s our wet dream as far as race goes.

        Germany is a great example. The western parts are diverse as hell while the east is still a white as the pure driven snow. Remember Pegida happened in a city that is still 98% white.

        • Augustus3709

          That’s why the enemy is so desperate to flood the cities with non-Whites, in order to alienate us from each other.

            Ließ der Sekretär des Schriftstellerverbands

            In der Stalinallee Flugblätter verteilen

            Auf denen zu lesen war, daß das Volk

            Das Vertrauen der Regierung verscherzt habe

            Und es nur durch verdoppelte Arbeit

            zurückerobern könne. Wäre es da

            Nicht doch einfacher, die Regierung

            Löste das Volk auf und

          • Augustus3709

            It’s the Master-Slave mentality. For all the talk about equality, the real goal is an all-powerful government, which rules over helpless, stupid, confused masses.

          • Weisheit77

            exactly… This is planned.

      • nito_incog

        Not only in terms of race realism, but the communists outlawed pornography and other forms of degeneracy that are used as pys-op weapons against us here in the West. On the other hand, they were not necessarily more free to speak about racial matters. Antisemitism was a crime in the U.S.S.R. but that’s not surprising, given who was behind Communism and the Revolution.

        • “Clear out the synagogue”
          Josef Stalin

        • Jacobite2

          The biggest joke in the Soviet Union was Patrice Lumumba University. The Russians make Bull Connor look like Spike Lee. The anti-Semitism laws in the USSR started out as serious, but after the Russians started getting firm hold on power, it only served as PR for foreign (i.e., US) Jews. Who, for their own local purposes, bought it and kept supporting the Soviets, while their brothers in Russia were running for Israel.

      • Augustus3709

        Some say that China is not really “communist”, they’re just “Chinese”.

        That entails being culturally conservative and collectivist, receptive to top-down hierarchical authority reminiscent of a kingdom.

        American rebelliousness is somewhat unique in the world.

    • WR_the_realist

      There are now more real Communists among the American and Western European elites than there are in China the the former Soviet Union combined.

    • Strider73

      Since the crackup of the USSR, Pravda — the Communist Party’s propaganda paper — has become a more reliable news source than our MSM. It is finally living up to its name, which means “truth.”

  • Chip Carver

    Historical lack of contact? PC drivel is loaded with unintentional hilarity. Fulbright scholar, eh?

    • Mangosteen, $1000 chair

      I’m sure the Chinese are lamenting their lack of cultural enrichment. Who doesn’t want rap music, basketball, spinnin rimz and all the other things that the blacks contribute to society? Not to mention the rapes, murders and everything else! C’mon China, it’s like, 2015, maaaan! Diversity is your strength too!

    • Tarczan

      Only brainwashed whites would pay for someone to “research African students-entrepreneurs in China”. What possible value could this have? I’ll bet that will be an earth shaking paper.

    • bilderbuster

      Last name Rothschild.

  • Hello? Guangzhou had black riots a few years ago.

  • Mangosteen, $1000 chair

    I’m sure Ms. ROTHSCHILD would love to convince the sensible Chinese that they’re wrong, so her ilk can flood China with them and turn another decent nation into a miserable and crime-ridden hellhole. Hope the Chinese have similar realistic views on Ms. Rothschild’s kin and don’t allow them to seize control there like we foolishly did in the West.

    • TomIron361

      That will never, ever happen to the Chinese.

      • Mangosteen, $1000 chair

        You might be surprised. YKW is doing the exact same thing to them that they did to us. Interbreeding with them and then setting up their half-Asian children as the rulers of that particular Asian country. Here’s a few:

        Rupert Murdoch and Wendi Deng
        Les Moonves and Julie Chen
        Mark Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chang
        Jeb Rubenfeld and “Tiger Mom” Amy Chua
        George Soros and Tamiko Bolton (current) Jennifer Chun (ex)
        Aviv Nevo and Zhang Zhyi
        Maury Povich and Connie Chung

        I’m sure there’s tons more and it’ll be very interesting to see where the children of these unions end up.

      • Mangosteen, $1000 chair

        Oh it will. The usual suspects are doing their usual work. Look at all of these marriages:

        Rupert Murdoch and Wendi Deng
        Jed Rubenfeld and Amy Chua (Tiger Mom)
        Aviv Nevo and Zhang Ziyi
        Mark Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chang
        George Soros and Tomiko Bolton (formerly married to Jennifer Chun)
        Maury Povich and Connie Chung
        Les Moonves and Julie Chen

        Where will those children end up? I’m betting in positions of power in Chinese society. That’s how we ended up in the situation we’re in here in the West. Even the British Monarchy is infiltrated!

        • Ultimate187

          It won’t end up in the same situation. China doesn’t have nearly the same historical degree of inflammatory race relations to be guilt tripped.

          • Mangosteen, $1000 chair

            There’s more of them so not all will be assimilated, but remember how realistic we were as a society about our enemies up until about 50 or so years ago, and look at the rapid collapse due to loss of that knowledge.

      • Lexonaut

        “Really, white people do this all the time, too! Really!”

        I suspect she’s referring to white hooligans rioting over the outcome of sports games. Under the doctrines of Social Justice there is no difference between a white kid setting fire to a trash barrel and a member of the Oakland NBPP inciting people to kill a Bosnian resident of Saint Louis County with hammers.

    • George Moriarty

      “The rioting made sense when I saw they were black…”
      We all know that China now has considerable investment and enterprise on the African continent, I really do wonder how they deal with and get on with Africans there?

      • bilderbuster

        There was a story a few weeks back about a Chinese restaurant in Kenya refusing to serve Blacks.

        • George Moriarty

          This would not surprise me. Basically the Chinese will do their own thing. But normally the Chinese will never turn away business so it would be interesting to know what the proprietor’s motives were, perhaps he did not want to see his restaurant go downhill or simply just did not want the company of blacks. (Very brave in a nation that is 99% African)

          • bilderbuster

            The Blacks would pose as customers and rob the place so Blacks had to be escorted by Chinese,Indians or Europeans if they wanted to be served.
            Of course the Kenyans made a big stink about it, shut the restaurant down and diplomats got involved to smooth it over.

      • Weisheit77

        I know a Chinese girl whose father runs a company in Uganda. He kind of got screwed into owning it by his fellow business partners. Well besides numerous attempts on his life I can’t post here what his actually opinions are regarding our darker brethren.

        I read an article in The Economist about this a couple of months ago. The Chinese bring in their own workforce and exclude the local population to the greatest extent possible. Naturally, the locals were upset about it. Boo hoo, said I.

        • Strider73

          I suspect that if the Africans get too “uppity” the Chinese will either enslave them or exterminate them. Either way, they will not lose any sleep over it.

    “…even these relatively enlightened users did not point out the
    fundamental disconnect between a protest on the streets of Baltimore,
    and a larger discussion of Africans from Africa – which, of course,
    is a mind-bogglingly diverse continent with 54 countries, over 1
    billion people, and, according to the African Language Program at Harvard University, “anywhere between 1,000 and 2,000 languages.”

    Any short term trade advantage that might be a short term benefit to the Chinese people will soon be overcome if the “enlightened” Chinese leadership continues allowing the Africans to live amongst their people. As the writer herself admits, the African continent is huge and diverse. There is more than enough diversity to accommodate those Africans who are dissatisfied with their local culture. Not only China – but the whole world as well – should learn from the mistake the Americans made by importing Africans.

    • It will never happen.
      First, China has one and a third BILLION people-almost all of whom are Han Chinese. They will never be overwhelmed.
      Second, China doesn’t have to worry about “minority” communities protesting and rioting. They will put down any disturbances in a heartbeat. They have millions of Muslims, btw, but you don’t see any terror attacks there, do you? Why? Their Muslims are brutally suppressed. They don’t take anything.

      • Kenner

        There have been bombings and mass knifings of Han Chinese by muslim Uigars, including at least one bombing in Beijing. The Uigars want the Chinese out of Xinchiang.

        • Cato

          John was surely talking about the Hui (ethnic Chinese, of Muslim faith). From these, we have not heard of any trouble.

          The Uigars are Turkic (if you speak Turkish, you can make yourself understood in Xianjiang). The Uigar problem is like the Tibet problem (the Basque problem, the Kurdish problem…). Ethnic, not religious.

      There are 2 viable “host” populations in this world. The first is White/European and the other is Asian. The latter is currently being built up in anticipation of the fall of the former. Groups such as Africans, and ironically, kin of the Rothschilds will go to whomever is deemed more hospitable.

      Not long ago, China opened itself to the world, and since then have noticeably developed more cosmopolitan attitudes. Their rough exterior remains though, because they haven’t experienced as much internal subterfuge that America has.

      • Lexonaut

        Chinese are Chinese wherever they go, just as Jews are Jewish wherever they go. Jews don’t care where they are buried but most Chinese want their bones to go home to the Old Country, or at least that used to be the case.

    Looks like the Chinese are freer to speak their minds than Americans are in the US. What galls me is that the things Americans are afraid to say in public today are exactly the same things Americans would’ve been happy to say to anybody 60 years ago. Nothing I see quoted from the Chinese is false. Perhaps you’ve noticed that truth is no defense to a charge of racism. Well, if ‘racism’ is the truth, then I have no problem with it. Maybe China will preserve some Western Civilization. God knows, the US certainly won’t.

      Language is controlled which ultimately influences thought. It all comes down to a level of control they want to have over you. Look around…do most of your friends and family have any real idea about what’s going on in the world today, outside of what they see on MSM?

      • Jacobite2

        My parents’ generation had a pretty clear idea of what’s been happening. Unfortunately, almost all of them are deceased. My father died at 95, and came to be of two minds about his service in WW II, as having been perfectly defined as fighting for democracy abroad while losing it at home. By chance, his Bomb Group in Italy (459th BG) got tangentially involved with American POWs lost behind Red Army lines under conditions vastly worse than in German camps, and the US military’s craven/cowardly/treasonous refusal to do anything about repatriating them, plus keeping the entire issue super-secret from Americans back home at all costs. FYI, the new biography of Capt Robert Trimble, called “Beyond the Call”, by Trimble & Dronfield, lays out this story in agonizing personal detail. If you want to know why the US fought WW II as we did, READ IT — it will make all clear. My generation is divided, with half or more being in the picture, and the other half hopelessly brainwashed. However, as anti-Americans control the MSM. Hollywood, publishing, non-profit foundations, academia, and Wall Street, even “my half” will not speak their minds freely in public (I’ve worked with police officers who use sign language). My children’s generation is worthless, hopeless, and witless. American kids in US public schools might as well be Komsomol members, except most of the Young Communists knew it was all a Big Lie (“we pretend to work, and they pretend to pay us”), while American kids eat it up. Looks like US Leftists ‘got’ Gramsci better than the Soviets did.

          I would like to have met your dad. My step dad was a marine and saw action in Iwo Jima and other theatres of war. Lots of medals, which he was incredibly shy about even acknowledging – even a Purple Heart. That being said, he had somewhat of a “breakdown” in his late middle age and seemed to really have moral issues with the war – perhaps really dealing with it for the first time.
          At any rate, history is always written by the victors. There’s so much action behind the curtain we don’t see, it takes a bit of unraveling to come to any clear cohesive theory, but that’s the nature of the beast. I can deal with that. I cannot deal with being betrayed by my government. It’s a Patrick Henry kind of thing.

          • Jacobite2

            I can only recommend again reading “Beyond the Call”. It gets down and personal, instead of big-picture. What exactly happened was that two Ukrainians or Russians immigrated to the US, They had a son. Things didn’t go well and they returned to the USSR. The boy didn’t want to go and he didn’t want to stay. Too bad. One day in 1945, he hears that a B-24 has crash-landed nearby and he runs to the site. He throws himself on the crew’s mercy and they hide him. They actually get him out of the USSR and to a USAAF base in Italy (as they were dad’s 459th BG, that would be Cerignola). The Russians find out (and we wonder how — Red spies actually were everywhere, even more than McCarthy knew) and demand that this American-born US citizen be returned to the NKVD. Outrage, protests, refusal among the flyers at the base, but our beloved FDR and his NKVD/GRU aids/agents, Harry Hopkins and Harry Dexter White, ordered that this guy be returned to Moscow. In the book, there’s even a snapshot of the plane refueling at an American base on the last leg to Moscow. If you were an America AAF officer, how proud of your service would you be? Dad actually said if he knew then what he knew later, he would’ve resigned his commission. After all, by 1945, we already knew that the Nazis were abiding scrupulously to the Geneva Convention as to US and Brit POWs. But we couldn’t even trust the Reds to aid American POWs behind their lines — bastards! Thousands were never accounted for, and the US Government kept it as secret as the Manhattan Project — secret from the American people, that is. Patton was right, we should’ve been fighting the Red Army. After all, the USSR had been at war with the US since 1922, when they sent the first batch of Comintern agents here to begin infiltrating our Government and private institutions, allied with the CPUSA, to overthrow American rule in the US. OTOH, Germany declared war on the US in 1941 because of their treaty obligations to Japan.

            Sorry about your step-dad. Not so easy to spot the moral issues in the Pacific Theater, but who knows? My uncle was likewise a Marine in the Pacific. I hear they did some naughty things to the Japs, but nothing they didn’t have coming. My dad had his worst moment when he traveled to Europe in the 70s and saw some of the damage still visible in Vienna and Berlin. After all, the Germans were his own people. He’d have been much better off in the PTO.

    This is why I don’t fear the Chinese making military moves against the U.S. They know they don’t have to. All they have to do is wait for the demographic change of our country from white to black and mestizo and they win. They understand this and our leaders don’t .

        Yeah you’re right in that I doubt we’ll ever need to go to war with each other, as we’ll slowly selling ourselves to you through our borrowing, but then China can’t afford us to financially fall either as we’re dependent on each other.
        China and Russia seem to positioning themselves in a pact to thwart our expansionist intentions, when I say ‘us’, I mean our leaders who’re aren’t doing us foundation stock White folk any favors. In fact you’ll find a lot of pro Russian sentiments around Anglo conservative sites these days, as they, with Chinese backing, seem to be the only deterrent to our “invade the world, invite the world” globalist leaders aspirations.

    I still blame Lincoln. He had a heart and felt slavery was wrong (actually I do too); however, he also planned to export these people back to their homelands and never expected them to be part of our society. He was wrong, very wrong. He never foresaw such ignorance among whites.

    • No. Up until WWII, the majority of Americans knew this was a White country. Following that war was when things started to change, gradually at first. Then came the Revolution of the Sixties. Of course, by now, the radical leftists are in their sixties and are holding the positions of power in our society. And they are making the most of it. That is what is happening now.

            As someone put it recently, most blacks can be trained but not educated. Fine, let’s train them.

            But enslave them? No. I can’t support that.

          • ElComadreja

            Well, let’s be honest. With few exceptions they don’t speak them very well. I could really use subtitles for some of the mush-mouthed gibberish I see spouted by them on TV. I also don’t know that they truly feel emotions and experience pain the same way we do. I’ve seen plenty of evidence to the contrary. I never said I wanted them enslaved. I wouldn’t even have them as paid employees. Their natural laziness and sense of entitlement makes the vast majority of them useless in any capacity. Also, even if you could train them most jobs they might have been trained to do have been outsourced or are being done by illegals.

          • Lexonaut

            I said that they feel pain. What they don’t feel is empathy, not for others of their kind and not for us. This allows them to be extraordinarily violent without feeling guilt of any kind.

            Their pidgin languages are perfectly understandable, it’s just that with a vocabulary of 2,000 words you can’t even think complex thoughts much less express them.

            They can be trained but most of them cannot be educated. Presented with a choice between working and starving they would work low level jobs to the boss’s satisfaction. Absent that choice they are lazy beyond belief.

    The Chinese are the biggest racists in the world. Have been for 5000 years.
    The symbol for China is square with a vertical line through it. It stands for ‘the middle kingdom’. The middle here doesn’t mean geographical location. It means that there are three levels of sentient life in the universe: gods, Chinese, and barbarians (which is everyone who is not Chinese).

    This internalized racism is 5000 years in development. It isn’t going to be changed with a few diversity seminars.

    Young blacks like to believe that white American men are the biggest racists in the world.

      Whites are stereotyped as being racist based on a history of negative interaction with other races (e.g., Black slavery, Jewish Holocaust, Central American conquest, Native American extermination, Indian subjugation etc).

  • Oldcorporal

    This writer is completely around the bend. Chinese people, by and large, do not like or respect blacks; nor do they feel one bit ashamed for feeling that way. Those “opinions” quoted with such horror by Rothschild, were not just opinions; they were the facts. Anyone who has been around blacks for a while knows that they can go off suddenly and indulge in extreme violence; that they feel “entitled” because of “slavery”; that they are not, as we say in the Midwest, “work-brittle”; that there seems to be a tradition, among black men, of fathering as many children by as many women as possible — without any intention of ever supporting them. When the Olympics were held in Beijing a few years ago, the police visited every tavern within a few miles of the Olympic Village before the games started, and told the proprietors: While the Olympics are being held, you WILL NOT serve either blacks or Mongols in your tavern, on pain of HEAVY fines if you violate this order. The Chinese know that blacks have a tendency to extreme violence — and apparently Mongols do, too.

  • dd47

    I remember reading that when the Chinese first discovered Africa, they ceased exploration for a while because they were convinced the world must only contain uncivilized savages that weren’t worth discovering. Meanwhile, Whites bother to try and pave roads and bring our language, clothing and living standards to Africa, and allowed them to travel and study in the West. If Whites were so “racist” colonialism would have never happened- there would have been no reason to try and export civilization if it seemed useless from the start.

    I wonder whether there even should be widespread opposition from Europeans towards Africans entering either the Middle East or (at least most of) Asia. There are all sorts of desirable outcomes that could be had:

    China could potentially reflex from being fed up with Africa, and then switch its “neocolonialism” (which Nkrumah referred to as puppet governments reliant economically or militarily on another power) to a more overt form. Governments that could be classified as neocolonial in Africa are virtually all of them- they’re all either reliant on the West or on the Chinese. The ones that were reliant on the Soviets also mostly switched to China (e.g. Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Angola). Some like Ghana switched from the Soviets to the West (Ghana owing virtually everything to the IMF/World Bank). Liberia, Ivory Coast, Botswana and many others remained generally pro-Western (but anti-colonial) throughout the Cold War (during the 1950’s, Liberia was receiving more US foreign aid than the rest of sub-Saharan Africa combined). The late Michael Sata of the leftist PF in Zambia was also considered the same way- African leftism is by no means a way out of economic reliance.

    Or China could end up like the West and destroy itself in the same manner- entirely their own fault. This could still be considered an acceptable outcome from a western perspective because their society would decline at a level comparable to others. China can only end up “#1” if its strength doesn’t decline while that of its opposition does.

    Perhaps an even better outcome is that the Chinese people use their anger about the African immigration problem (along with various others) to overthrow the “Communist” government and (if lucky) instate a right-wing nationalist government (not the quasi-leftist Kuomintang-style government!). But the fate of such an overthrow would be unpredictable for both them and us- what’s to say they don’t instate useless elections, liberal governments or disintegrate altogether? Keeping the current system probably benefits China immensely for the foreseeable future.

            But I’m not so concerned with what the Rabbi in the orthodox synagogue thinks. I notice behavioral patterns that are either genetically encoded or received through their culture. I think they call it Tikkun olam. Repairing the world.

            Since the days when they followed the Roman legions into the home of the Gauls and the Germans they have been shape shifters. I am noticing the same pattern here.

            A recent revelation of mine was discovering that China has only ever granted citizenship to 7 non-Chinese. All were to the left of Lenin, but 6 were Jews.

      Speaking of making stuff up, interested readers who haven’t already seen it should google “youtube president pryor” for comedian Richard Pryor’s 40 year old take on presidential politics vis a vis blacks.

        Don’t forget the famous “Negro American space program” video, which is so famous it has its own Wikipedia page!

          I had never heard of it. Thanks!!!

          The moment I saw “NASSA” I knew I was in for a treat.

    Thank you!

    Most blacks behave black everywhere they are found and regardless of where they were born. Just because a description is a stereotype doesn’t make it untrue. The Chinese aren’t stupid and they’re not gullible, either.

      A week or so ago I posted this graphic on an AR article, to generally favorable reviews. Looks like it’s time to post it again.

    The Chinese have it exactly right; just Negroes being Negroes. Interesting that two of the largest immigrant groups coming into the US, Chinese and Hispanics have the same opinion about Negroes.

    And that’s why race realism is important for a post racial America, or possibly the world.

    Looks like the Left finally discovered the real Opium of the People. I expect it to be quite effective — a Communist believes in an ideology; a slut IS a slut.

    This is snipped from the original:

    “Africans are routinely characterized as illegal workers responsible for a rise in robbery, drug dealing, gang activity, and general disturbances of the peace,
    and are subject to random visa inspections by local police. The African
    community has taken to the streets to demonstrate against unfair
    treatment — in 2009 following the death of a Nigerian man who jumped from a window trying to escape a police raid, then again in 2012 when an African man died mysteriously in police custody.”

    Like most progs, the author appears to have a stunning disconnect between what she wants to believe and actual reality. Always lacking is the WHY question. WHY are Africans routinely characterized as criminals everywhere they end up? Just looking at the above paragraph, WHY did the Nigerian man jump from a window to escape a police raid? WHY was the raid being conducted in the first place?

    The utter lack of logic in lieu of feelings is sickeningly old.

    I honestly wonder about the Chinese “response” to this. The Chinese look at the behavior of “blacks” in this country, especially during the Baltimore riots, and then say that “this is blacks being blacks.”

    I imagine that they must say, in private, that the Rape of Nanking was just Japs being Japs, right?

    I doubt that. The Chinese can look at blacks in this country from a safe distance. Japan is much closer.

    I have no preference when it comes to either Chinese or Japanese. Let’s just remember what both races are capable of. Mao’s Cultural Revolution. Japan’s Bataan Death March. I say we let Japan rearm itself and fight to the death with China, while we sit on the sidelines and smoke out radical islam.

  • Jacobite2

    Maoism isn’t the problem in China or in the USA. The Han Chinese believe they’re one people destined for great things. They might be, or not, but they are one people. Americans have been told since WW II that ‘Americans’ don’t exist. ‘Americans’ are anybody who can get naturalized here. You’ll find zero Chinese or Japanese who’d buy that PoS for one nano-second. Everybody else on earth understands that ‘Americans’ are a particular people — Europeans, with a tilt toward NW Europe (our Founders). In a race war (which is ongoing in the USA today), not believing that your race exists is a serious handicap.

      I refer to “tribes” it seems to be less of a trigger word for the Lefties. As well as most of the moderate conservatives here at national review.

      • Jacobite2

        Ouch! I just went 1 for 7 on NRO today. A couple of Comments were deleted at the same instant I clicked the “Post” button. Talk about somebody looking over your shoulder. I was reading NR when JFK was president — 180 degree turnaround since then. New York City does that to people. Putting a nuke in the ayatollah’s hands might be O’bwana’s only success yet.

        • Schnuffleupagus

          Right! Tribe is less of a trigger word

          • Jacobite2

            Sometimes so; oftentimes, no amount of prestidigitation will save me. Forget the horse-hockey about civility — there are certain ideas which may not be expressed in any words. Or cartoons, now.

    China has more barbaric stuff happening there then what happened in Baltimore, they do far worse things than just riot.

  • Magician

    ….. As soon as the headline contained “China….” I am sure John Engelman’s eyes lit up

    But anyways this is funny

  • John Smith

    The writer claims Chinese don’t differentiate between different subgroups of negroes and lump them together with regard to their perceived proclivity to perpetrate violence and disorder, yet, in reality, it appears that there is no place where negroes are where they do not create these kinds of problems. This would validate the Chinese perspective and justify their desire to restrict negroes from entering their country.

    “Sweeping Stereotypes.”

    You mean observations.

  • slobotnavich

    East Asians in general are not reticent about speaking critically about black Africans, whom they generally consider an inferior, if not actually sub-human, species. They also consider Caucasians rather barbaric and lazy, though not necessarily stupid. And most believe that Asians will become the dominant force in the world in the 21st Century. They’ve certainly got numbers on their side, and they’re clearly on the way up, while we Euro-whites seem to be trending down. One never hears the hoary and condescending old British expression “White man’s burden,” any longer.

    “all are born equal” This has always been in my mind to mean that everyone is equal re: The Law.
    I don’t recall ever reading or thinking that all people are born equal. I have never been able to get on a ball team because I don’t have much ability in that area. But then I used to be able to build a deck and hoist the beams by myself using what I call ‘instinctual engineering’. When the job is done I’ve often wondered how I got that huge beam up there by myself.
    Just saying this because I really don’t recall reading much or hearing any support on the “everyone’s equal” thought. It just isn’t so as far as I know and or observe.

  • BulgAryan

    African student entrepreneurs?!? What is that supposed to mean? Foreign students in China, be it on a Chinese government scholarships (blacks) or tuition paying (westerners) ARE NOT ALLOWED TO WORK. If there is a whole underlass of black “student entrepreneurs” I say China needs to kick them out for violating their visas’ terms.
