You don't want dem yellers or reds taking over though, do you PT? That admission seems to have been lost in the wash.

Certainly not I am hoping the US gets it sh*t together soon and gets back on track 
We see that, by the way you are death riding the only POTUS in living memory who has done anything positive - coincidentally, what he promised! Wacko
In reference to every post in the Trump thread ... "There may have been a tiny bit of license taken there" ... Ok, Thanks for the "heads up" PT!

Blackface skit in China's new year gala sparks racism accusations

Shanghai: Skits on China's widely-watched Lunar New Year gala on state television that featured Chinese actors made up to appear African have provoked accusations of blackface and racism online.

In one skit, actors joked about Chinese-built high-speed rail in Kenya.n another skit, actress Lou Naiming appeared on stage in colourful garb with her face and arms coloured brown, carrying a fruit basket on her head, and accompanied by someone costumed as a monkey.

A black woman playing her daughter declares that she wants to study in China but is worried her mother will not agree.Lou replies, "Why wouldn't I agree? A Chinese volunteer medical team saved my life when I was young. Now Chinese kids are building a railroad for us... I love Chinese people. I love China!"

The internet lit up with criticism after the show, which is believed to be one of the most widely-watched shows in the world, aired on the eve of Lunar New Year.

"The racial discrimination was so clear," wrote one microblogger, who goes by the name Chen Fei Tutu."Is this our nation propagating Chinese values? When white people discriminate against us, we are strongly dissatisfied, but now we are discriminating against Africans in such high profile. How shameful."China's foreign ministry did not immediately respond to a request from Reuters seeking comment on the racism allegations.

On its Weibo microblog, online information platform Tutopia said, "Imagine if it was a white person in blackface saying in an exaggerated accent, 'I love America,' and not being blasted by the whole world."

Others declared the sketch, aired during the "CCTV Spring Festival Gala" that traditionally draws hundreds of millions of viewers, an embarrassment.

The more than four-hour-long programme of skits, music and dance has been a television staple since it was first broadcast in 1983. The highlight of this year's show was a reunion duet by two of China's most famous pop stars.

Public discussion of racial discrimination is unusual in China, which is dominated by the ethnic Han majority but is also home to dozens of minority groups as well as a growing influx of foreign residents, including Africans.

In 2016, a laundry detergent company in China apologised after running an advertisement in which a black man was stuffed headfirst into a washing machine only to emerge a moment later as a fair-skinned Asian man.

At the time, the Foreign Ministry called the sequence an isolated commercial that had prompted no diplomatic complaints, but added that China respected all countries, no matter their ethnicity or race, and was "good brothers" with African countries.

China has forged increasingly close ties with many African nations in its hunt to satisfy demand for commodities in its booming economy. Beijing has rejected accusations of neo-colonialism in Africa, saying its aid there has no strings attached and is widely welcomed.

They are unashamedly racist about black people in Asia generally. It's like talking to grandpa in 1973.
