Wait, in a country of 320 million people, some of them are *gasp* NOT NICE!?!?!?!

NO WEI!

Next you are going to tell me that not everyone in China is a factory worker...

They probably just stole that article from some other newspaper.

Just so we're all on the same page here, their propaganda building looks like a giant penis.

Mark my words, this will not end happily.

Wow that looks like a giant penis
 
2013-05-31 12:02:44 PM
That's just wong.

And the final tells the story of a member of United Airlines' staff who blocked a passenger from boarding an overbooked plane.

HOW DARE THEY! They should have let him sit on the pilot's lap!

First of all,

In the impression of the overwhelming majority of Chinese people, Americans are all people who are honest, reliable, and of good moral character.

...Really?  I would not have expected them to have a very high opinion of us.  My understanding is that China is rather xenophobic.  *shrug*

Secondly, this is a big ol' heap of the pot calling the kettle black.  I've worked with and known more than my fair share of Chinese folks due to my years of work in the IT industry.  The overwhelming majority of Chinese businesses/people I've worked with professionally have given me a bad impression.  That's my anecdotal evidence and I try not to let it color my view of an entire race of people.

Like someone else pointed out up thread, with as many Chinese people as there are, there are bound to be some douchebags.  That's just math.

Depends on what you mean -- their street vendors, at least, love foreign tourists.  Also, because "made in China" often has the same negative connotations in China as it does here, a lot of Chinese prefer to shop at foreign-operated stores like Walmart & Carrefour, or dine at KFC and McDonald's.

There are dirtbags everywhere.  China has more than the US, just by force of their large population.

Now, re-read that sentence again, but substitute "dirtbags" with "good folks" and it will still be true.

/met my fair share of both, in both places.

Much like everything else China copies, I see that China's People Daily is copycatting The Daily Mail's hatred of Americans and their desire to make Americans look bad every chance they get.

+1 for the headline

That building seems... hmmm, reminds me of something...

Yeah, this has no chance of backfiring whatsoever...

"Zhang Ling, did you see this? Americans are so terrible to each other; did you see this article about a locksmith who overcharged his customers?"
"Um, uh... what?"
"This article. These Americans, they have no honor."
"Um, yeah... whatever."
"What's your problem, man?"
"Sorry, just a bit distracted lately."
"Why?"
"I'm trying to to figure out how to get the money to pay off the judge who imprisoned my father after he reported that his employer had taken hostage the daughter of another employee who complained about the company dumping benzene into the river just upstream from the rice fields."
"Wow... that's rough, man. How much do you need?"
"Eighty thousand yuan."
"Wow... hey, I know someone who can get that for you. But first I have to ask, how much do you love your son?"
"What?"
"How much do... hey, would you get a load of this? Some airline in America OVERBOOKED A PLANE! Seriously, how do these people get away with such things?"

Pot.  Kettle.  Shake hands.

Also, China is the epitome of corruption, with bribes being a daily part of life over there.

The captions just write themselves, don't they?

I have to admit to being surprised about American's being perceived as saints.  I would have thought it would be something like "Well they are pushy and obnoxious but at least they aren't Japanese."
 
2013-06-01 03:14:56 AM
I got lead poisoning from reading that article.

/ at least it wasn't melanine

They pulled the column.

So, really, they shrunk back after releasing the propaganda prematurely.

According to TFA, that "paper" has a circulation of 3 million in a country with well over 1 billion people.  Something tells me that the People's Daily isn't exactly their equivalent of the NYT.

I see the substantive issue has been covered.

If that picture had been taken a quarter of a second later the wheels from that bicycle would lined up perfectly. Wonder if they would have still printed it?

And, subby, this is for you:

It's the English language one.  Most of their papers are in Chinese.

Your HQ is a gigantic penis, your argument is invalid.
