Aunque muchos no lo crean me encanta mi isla, pero no vivo en negacion. Creo que se esta levantando una generacion sin respeto ni moral, por que? Porque tenemos a ninos queriendo ser adultos, y adultos queriendo volver a ser teenagers, y no se puede vivir algarete.
Trabajo fuertemente con juventud y hay que volver a las raices de nuestra gente, sabes cuando jovenes intentan suicidarse en esta isla, y los padres ni cuenta se dan, te podria contar montones de casos, pero cuando hablo asi me acusan de que no hago nada y solo critico, si supieran.

Then why don't you go to another country and see the difficulties of learning their language in a short period of time. Why don't you come to China and try starting a conversation with us. I am sure me and my fellow ZHONG GUO REN will have a jolly ol' time making fun of whatever broken Chinese phrases you might know.

Don't even think about using language as a way of furthering your racist messages.

By the way, based on your arrogance and your unique choice of a username, I assume you are an Englishman.

We Chinese do not like Englishmen. We have not forgotten the roughly one century of military occupation of our coastal cities and ports by your gunboats. We have not forgotten our citizens being harassed for no reason by British concession police in Guangzhou and Shanghai and treated like filth in our own land.

The Taiping Rebellion of 1853-1864 almost succeeded in eradicating you from our land forever. We had the military ability and we certainly had the manpower. Unforunately for us, Emperor Hong Xiuquan was an egotistical paranoid schizophrenic who crowned his favorite war horse as a regional king in 1864. And Emperor Yang Xiuqing was a brutal, power hungry tyrant who attempted to have the entire imperial family massacred so he could sit in the Taiping throne. During the chaos of his attempted usurpation, Nanjing almost fell to the Qing Dynasty and British forces who were circling the city like wolves.

Because of the actions of these two greedy and incompetant men, our best military leaders lost faith in the Taiping movement and left. General Shi Dakai took his followers from Nanjing and marched almost a thousand miles to Sichuan, where they faced certain death on the Mongol border. Only General Li Xiucheng remained loyal to the movement and he was forced to launch his assault on Shanghai alone, without other Taiping forces to support him.

If General Li's army had been able to take Shanghai, you Englishmen would have certainly been slaughtered, bayonetted, and burned to death in your quarters along with your French, Burmese and Indian mercenaries.

So you were lucky. The incompetance of our leaders enabled you to buy another half century of colonization in China before the Revolutionary Armed Forces of the Communist Party finally purged you from our land.

It is amazing what conservative Cubans can do who are recent immigrants to America , work AND school is the norm for them while Puerto Ricans are a damn joke and should be stripped of citizenship and deported to their little corrupt island.

"The petite 27-year-old Cuban expat says she has planned to open a Cuban-style kitchen ever since she moved to Vermont with her husband, Jared Carter, in 2006. The couple met in Baracoa, Cuba, in 2003, when then-recent college grad Carter ran into Santiago native Mora on the beach. He was in the country to study national parks for a nonprofit group; she was a student of organic agriculture working as a caterer."

Isn't it ironic that many Puerto Ricans leave Puerto Rico for Florida in hope of a better life and they are sooner creat a ghetto.

Calling me racist? That is the pot calling the kettle 'hei de'.(Phonetic translation of the Chinese adjective for 'black')

You say you and your people 'hate' the British for events that happened 150 years ago. You realize, of course, that is the definition of racist.

Oh, and regarding my previous post with the 'simpoltin'...

I don't think the individual has as much trouble with english as a second language as they do with lack of education. Further, if I was to visit China and interact with your proud culture, I would do so with the utmost respect. I would not try to foist my culture on yours, nor would I refuse to assimilate.

Many AMERICANS of all backgrounds are angry about the total lack of respect for OUR CULTURE. We are a diverse people, as you probably have noted. I'm also sure that while you maintain your identity and culture, you have also adapted to life here by adopting some of our ways. People from every country have come here and worked to be part of this great country; Hispanics expect this country to adapt to them.

Exhibit A: Spanish speaking television stations
Exhibit B: Driver's tests in Spanish
Exhibit C: Retail products with bi-lingual labels.

Which leads me to another question:

You came here and learned to speak the native language-English.
Why aren't you more offended that Hispanics get a 'pass' and not have to learn it themselves?

First of all, my first and only true love was Puerto Rican, so when you insult Hispanics, you insult her and you are insulting me too.

Second of all, you people already tried to impose your culture onto ours. It is called the Opium War and the Open Door Policy. You opened the Burma trail and the gunboat ports to transfer large amounts of opium into China. All of this led to a war, one which we lost, initially. It also led to the creation of the FIRST drug-enforcement task force in the world, led by a Guangzhou prefect named Ling Zhequan.

And it is why we have put in place the harshest drug enforcement policy in the world today in the People's Republic of China. Anyone get caught with over 0.05 grams of an controlled substance, they will be immediately executed by firing squad. No questions asked. Same thing in our neighboring ally, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

My grand uncle was a Chinese Communist soldier who fought against the Japs from 1937 to 1945 and he said the only way we can deal with foreign imperialist is by a fist of molten steel.

WROOOOONG!!! The worst part of Orlando is the "Pine Hills" section also known as "Crime Hills" and is 90% black and the rest is mostly poor whites... I have a thread on crime in Florida called "El Vocero de Florida" that I update on a weekly basis and most of the most horrific crimes in Florida are in areas with very few Puerto Ricans, and committed mostly by blacks and whites... I document terrible crimes with sources with valid links that include acts of cannibalism,a 2 year old getting raped in seaworls, cops shot and killed and on highways broad daylight, families mother father children shot and killed on highways, people getting killed in clubs and just an unlimited amount of awful things that don't happen in PR.... In the Boca Raton Mall alone a woman and daughter killed in carjacking 3 years old, and 2 more murders and carjackings/kidnapping.....

Puerto Rico is a place, not a person. I- and no one I know- had a hand in any Opium Wars. You are a complete moron with misplaced anger toward total strangers.

And Puerto Rico is a dump. It is a leech on America; the same as a half witted, self proclaimed Chinese Communist. You have the mind of a child with no ability to engage in rational conversation. Now go drive you rice burning $500.00 Honda with the fart-can muffler and the PR flag plastered on the roof and play some awful Spanish music on your $5000 stereo system. I thought wiggers annoyed me- now I have a new one- chiggers. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Lol you know it but sometimes they buy or lease (can't imagine how with no credit rating) a nice car and live in dump but the car is important for them.

First of all I drive a EuroCargo semitractor (that is my line of work) I rather be dead than buy Jap merchandise. I hate Japs just as much as I hate western imperialists. Our countryside is still haunted by the ghosts of the thousands of innocent people murdered by the demonic Jap army during the 1937-1945 war

Your ancestors sure had a hand in the Opium Wars and the Boxer Rebellion and we NEVER forget or forgive. Even a thousand years from now we would not mind shedding blood to settle an old score.

Ever wonder why we Chinese developed the most sophisticated and deadliest combat arts and weaponry throughout our history? We are a VENGEANCE minded society, unlike many others who forgive their enemies.

Tell your American allies to send more warships to the South China Sea and try to meddle in our affairs and WATCH WHAT HAPPENS.

Oh by the way, my granduncle's father shot a British officer to death during the Boxer Rebellion in Zhijiazhuang using a WEBLEY revolver. Isn't that f**king ironic? HAHA
