Racism - the ugly side of 中国

Posted by Tal November 12, 2009 in the Group General Discussion.

Lou Jing was just an average Shanghai girl, and then she got the chance to appear on Oriental Angel, an American Idol style talent show. This meant that her appearance came under the spotlight, and the reality had to be faced. She is only half Chinese. Her father was an African American. Many Chinese people can't cope with this kind of concept though, and now Lou will say: "If you beat me to death, I wouldn't take part in that competition again".

See her on youtube here, (not viewable in China of course).
