  China  World Political Stupidity

The Chinese people have spread all over the world since the country was semi-freed-up in the late 1970s and then the economy got into the groove. Some are tourists (see also here). There are millions of others that have come to make lives all over the world. In Africa, it's almost strictly business, as that huge continent has a lot to exploit ooops, I mean explore, yeah, that's the ticket.

It's got to be more frustrating for the Chinese to deal with the mentality in Africa than it was for the slightly more relaxed Europeans 200 to 50 years ago. You've probably seen some other videos of the "clash of cultures", so this is just the latest video making the rounds. The black newscaster does not seem at all pleased as he describes the caning of an African by a Chinese boss. Really, the video is nothing special. It seems a lot less harsh than a whipping... no, I don't want you to prove me wrong.

There's bound to be a lot more of that, and I really wonder how the Chinese will fare over in Africa in the long run. As for America, how 'bout we just stock up on popcorn and Old Milwaukee and let this play out this time? One thing we could do ... come to think of it ... I'm envisioning a billboard, towering over the biggest traffic intersection in all of black Africa. It will have a message signed by representatives of the countries Great Britain, France, Spain, Italy, Germany, Portugal, and possibly Belgium, asking:

PS: I'm in pretty tight with some Chinese people and respect them in general. I just believe, as I'm sure you do, that there's a reason we have these things called countries. I'll just be glad to not to have to hear the same old complaints from the Africans. As my Dad would say "I'll give you something to complain about!!"
