I was born in Hong Kong but imigrated to Canada when I was 3. As far as I'm concerned, discrimination is everywhere, whether it is against race, religion, sexuality or gender. In some countries, such as Canada you just see less of it because people hide it within themselves because society dictates that they do. As for Hong Kong people appearing more rude, I dont think that's really true, I think it's just the way they talk in thier society. I have a few friends who have only recently imigrated from Hong Kong, and I too have seen them slowly conform to Canada's society which dictates politeness, and human rights, and alot of other rights. It should also be taken into consideration that Hong Kong is more messed up in thier economy because of the British rule vs the China rule. Messed up economies cause people to be a little less friendly and more bitter. In this world, dispite all those who have said money doesn't matter, it does when you want to eat.
