Racist Asians? No way.

Be careful, Europe - they're catching up to you!

"Whether on or off the field, fans should watch the game in a civilized manner, respect each other, do not do anything that damages the reputation of the team,"

There's your problem. Playing basketball on a field and not a court.

You want to know about the master race, just ask in China. They'll set you straight.

Bah, don't impugn an entire country for the actions of a few.

Plug, not of the butt kind, for a really nifty little podcast. Generally speaking, we know the names and locations of places in European history and can place them in our mind's eye when they're mentioned. Names and locations you're not familiar with can pretty easily lead to confusion but Chris Stewart does a good job of not throwing too many new items at you at the same time.

I find people are more willing to buy into "all Chinese are the same and China is representative of all of them" than for most other countries and ethnicities.

35-year-old Weems, who plays for the Guangdong

Honestly, if you're 35 years old and playing in China, you should think about some other career options.

Why? The Chinese teams pay a hell of a lot of money

Daedalus27: One party state, one identity

Agreed, though it is confusing to me how Tank Man was demonstrating his support there for the Chinese Communist Party. While it looks to be some sort of protest, what you see there is deceiving. His "identity" meant that he was cheering the actions taken by the party running his country because there is no room for separation.

A Tense Lunar New Year for the Bay Area After Attacks on Asian-Americans

Why is it that every single person in California hates Asian and black people, including yourself? Some people might say that is a bit unfair but I say that nuance is for pussies and I wholly reject the possibility that there are non-racists in California.

I'm sure the USOC and NBA will send letters of apology to China and beg for forgiveness.

They were saying "the basketball player is near".

Are there still people who aren't aware that China is far and away one of the most racist countries on earth - well beyond most of the West?
