Articles : kessembi commented on news Light a Candle: Overcoming Discrimination in China’s ESL Market

Yes, discrimination is everywhere. Racism is everywhere. Uneducated folk are everywhere. And so are thieves, liars, smooth-talkers. Every place has them, and China is no different. We get that. However, when subject to these things, some folk can ignore it and move on. That doesn't make these things less bad. Others ... Full Comment>>

Articles : kessembi commented on news Light a Candle: Overcoming Discrimination in China’s ESL Market

First off, I'M NOT WHITE - thought I'd get that one out of the way. Secondly, the only things I singled the author out about were the legality of the visas he mentioned in looking for a job and his following a charade pretending to be American. Calling a spade a spade: having the wrong documents and misrepresenting ... Full Comment>>

Articles : kessembi commented on news Light a Candle: Overcoming Discrimination in China’s ESL Market

Couple of points. (1) I've gone over this before. Sit down and take notes. Africa doesn't necessarily equal black. Black doesn't necessarily equal African. (2) The point behind my comment, in case you missed it, was that people are trying to play the author as if he's overreacting about how Chinese locals respond to ... Full Comment>>

Articles : kessembi commented on news Light a Candle: Overcoming Discrimination in China’s ESL Market

Unless it's music or dance or basketball, "black" is that 'thing' that most Chinese would rather not associate with. It's the jellybean that nobody likes, so to speak. Black people - or at least dark skinned people - of most societies, thanks to media portrayal, have long realized that is how the majority of the ... Full Comment>>

Articles : kessembi commented on news Light a Candle: Overcoming Discrimination in China’s ESL Market

With China being the homogeneous country it is plus having been closed off for so long, it's bad enough most locals believe all [continental] Africans are black and all black people are from Africa and have yet to realize (1) speaking of Africa, South Africa exists and (among other African countries) has white ...

@#47 And I'm definitely looking forward to it. I've grown weary of mentioning things like "TPR" or "lesson plan" or "verb" to these 'teachers' and getting the thousand yard stare. Full Comment>>

And then walked in every dark skinned person in China who was mistaken for a continental African and hence rejected even an interview. Anyway... Full Comment>>

RE: 3. I can agree with this on only on the grounds that unless people verbalize that they don't want to sit next to a black guy, the article's author can't just "assume" that that's the reason why seats were empty. But... remember where he is - China. The US, for an example, went through a lot of mess before ... Full Comment>>

Looking back, of course. I could say at that time was more like an extended version of Stage 4, but yeah, wasn't the best way to respond to the environment. Full Comment>>

Articles : kessembi commented on news The 5 Stages of Expat Life in China

Couple points: 1.) It was a stage that came and went. (Everything in that comment was in PAST TENSE... because it was in the past.) I had grown much since then - it wasn't like I was currently going through that stage at the time the comment was posted. If that were the case, I certainly would not have been posting ...

Articles : kessembi commented on news The 5 Stages of Expat Life in China

Stages 1 through 4? Yes, yes, yes, and GLORY yes! Stage 5, though? I think it's different for everyone. My stage 5 was a rebellious stage. I was the character in the local restaurants calling the waiters out for ignoring me, or ragging on the cashiers for flashing a calculator at me instead of just telling me how ... Full Comment>>
