Either that, or someone intentionally peddling propaganda lies for CCP nickels.
The "high degree of racial integration" in China must be the source of the crowds that gather to gawk at any non-Han, or the routine treating of ethnic minorities in China as second-class citizens! Hah!
What a FOOLISH CLOWN you look like when you spew these CCP fables!

Obviously you misinterpreted what I said or you don't speak English. Calling the president a "timid black president" is hardly racist. He is black afterall isn't he? I could call a white president a "timid white president" but you wouldn't think that racist would you? What is it with this race thing and you stupid liberals? The world does not revolve around this issue as much as you would like it to.
You were meant to be explaining what relevance the presidents skin colour has on diplomatic relations between China and the USA and thus showing you had a valid reason to mention his skin colour rather than the mere fact that you are obsessed by him being black.

These discussions ruffle a lot of feathers because its a sensitive topic that touches upon all of us personally. Almost all of us have, at some points in our lives, experienced the ugliness of racism either as its victim or perpetrator or more likely both. The reality is that racism is alive and well in both the most and least racially diverse societies.

In homogenous societies, the form of racism is more subtle as the lack of minorities make the incidences of overt discrimination low. It is not uncommon to hear people say that there is no racism here because there are no other races. People are racist without even knowing it. In diverse societies, incidences of overt discrimination are higher but there is at least a better awareness of its existence.

Maybe it is our nature to fear or hate those who are different from us. Evolutionarily speaking, fearing those who are different from us probably offered some survival advantages. Ending racism is a battle that will require each of us to constantly use our evolved rationality to check our more primitive instincts.

It's funny, we don't hear much about the KKK these days, but we do hear about the racist New Black Panthers, don't we. We hear about the Rev Wright, the racist black preacher that Obama hung out with for 20 years before he threw him under the bus. We hear that Obama is the most divisive president we've had in modern times. The man is impotent as a president and should be impeached for violating the constitution over and over. Take your "racism" and stick it up your big ass you New York freak.
