Articles : sorrel commented on news How COVID-19 Sparked Racism in China and Around the World

It's a lie. there is NO racism in China. bad laowei for suggesting that. If you hate China so much, why don't you leave? All bad laowei like you should leave - you are not China's friend. Full Comment>>

i have read most of them, as well as Outlaws of the Marsh and Journey to the West, as well as more contemporary authors. Don't confine yourselves to the 'classics' - there are many more Chinese authors worth reading. Full Comment>>

thanks WangNan. the thing about the internet is that it is anonymous, like the alias's people use. So I have 'got personal? One comment (like mine below) is 'personal' ?. Or do you think i am an easier target than Sandnose? I don't have to hide behind a 'Guest' sign-in within this section...... I still use my ECC ... Full Comment>>

you mis-spelled the word 'transparency' and also the word 'has' in your first sentence. Dr. Li Wenliang was all for ethical transparency. Not excusing the delayed response of some countries, but the lack of soap and toilet paper in China is an indication of the attitude to basic hygiene. suggestion: try re-reading ... Full Comment>>

you hurt my feelings !! boo hoo.

Let's here it for racism - wherever you are and whoever you are !! When locals turn on you because of un-grounded or stirred up fears, yes it is time to leave. Let's forget any roots you have put down or previously positive experiences you have had to date. Yes, any country that treats you like crap for no reason, ... Full Comment>>

@ nashboroguy.

TBH if education companies are having problems getting foreign teachers, it is ... Full Comment>>

look in the jobs section. bring pro-active will show a potential employer that you are motivated. asking other people to do this for you is not going to make you stand-out as a potential employee - in fact it will make you look lazy. Use the internet to do your research. Full Comment>>

don't worry, by discriminating against Africans, the Chinese are NOT being racist. Nor are they being racist against anyone who is not Chinese. You misunderstand the treatment of non-Chinese in China. This is the Chinese being hospitible (as they always tell us they are) Apparently only Caucasians can be ... Full Comment>>

there are rules, and there is racial targeting (becasuse they can now). By and large people will obey the new rules, but when they are applied harshly to one group (i.e. non-Chinese) it is a bit racist. A compatriot of mine who has been resident for 18 years has found his neighbours become hostile and abusive, not ... Full Comment>>

Articles : sorrel commented on news 7 Awesome Chinese Movies that Every Expat Should Watch

i can spot the movies that would be more correctly classed as HK movies than Chinese. The narrative structure is closer to that which non-Chinese audiences would recognise. Chinese narrative structure tends more towards 'heroic self-sacrifice' than that of HK movies. Great attempt to dismiss the HK movie industry ... Full Comment>>

6) contact information for your embassay/consualte.

Should also add: 9 ) bring your own medical supplies, especially if you require a prescription. The quality of local medication is questionable and a lot of it is probably fake. This would also include bringing a basic First Aid kit, because in an emergency you don't want to have to waste time looking for bandages ... Full Comment>>
