So I came across this article, and I couldn't find a similar topic in this forum. Sorry if it's a double post.

Bar owners near the Workers' Stadium in central Beijing say they have been forced by Public Security Bureau officials to sign pledges agreeing not to let black people enter their premises.
"Uniformed Public Security Bureau officers came into the bar recently and told me not to serve black people or Mongolians," said the co-owner of a western-style bar, who asked not to be named.

Uh... didn't anyone read that? It's old, and there's a more recent one that shows that it's obviously not true. Maybe you should check these things before you start calling people racist, when you're generalising about them anyway

A couple of things I want to just state:

1. Let me clarify this - There is no scandal in the women's gymnastics - The minimum age level to compete in the Olympics is 14 and all the girls who competed are 15/16. What scandal is that? Just because they look young and are thin? All Asian girls are like that.

2. I would appreciate it if people reading these articles had the sense to form their own judgements. Do you really think the government would get away with such blatant discrimination? China has worked hard to welcome all races and nationailities to its country and has been more than welcoming. People who have read the article should have the sense to see that the article is very biased. Maybe you could try forming your own opinions next time before being so ready to just take on other people's.

3. This thread will just promote spamming and flaming. Therefore I am locking this.
