    I understand Taiwan and HK, but Tibet? Why would anyone list Tibet separately?

    Well I can understand why people would but not why a company wanting to do business in China would. Stupidity, ignorance and arrogance are the words that come to my mind.

    I know. That's outrageous.

    It would been some low level programmer using the word territory rather than country. A non issue to the majority of the world

    ‘Racist’ Chinese Spring Festival Gala TV show causes uproar over ‘blackface and big bottoms’ | South China Morning Post

    Unbelievable number of comments (417) in the SCMP about the crass skit at the annual propaganda extravaganza on CCTV.

    Unfortunately most of the highly aligned comments are pointing at how racist western culture was. Pure whataboutism from hundreds of what some would assume paid posters. Why is the CCP so sensitivity about being seen as race intensive?

    Ask one of their representatives here. What's his name (Creative83?) has gone very quiet since party_servant has arrived.

    How do Africans view the skit? (I mean Africans as in people from African, as opposed to "African Americans" ). It would be quite interesting to hear from any of them, if they are on the board. Since most of the comments from white folks say more about the white folks than either the Chinese or the Africans.

    was reading US yahoo comments about this a few days ago. most said they were not offended. but then again, most of them sounded like trump voters. so...

    I agree that that is a more valid getting the views of Sub-Saharan Africa. But the point that was interesting for me was the biggest quantity of aligned comments on any article for many months pretty much all stating that the barbarous West are the real racists (which is xenophobic at best).

    Why would a country go to such lengths with 412 comments on an fluff piece article in a state mouth.
