This means Hong Kong people do not understand how to be "tolerant" or understand racial relations because they were oppressed against. So implying the average Hong Kong citizen does not know they are being intolerant isn't that crazy of a claim because they've experienced intolerance and have no education to help them identify it!
Did you forget what happened in the Philippines with the hostage situation? Were you so blind to local culture you did not see the backlash of the Hong Kong community? I'm not saying it was right, but it's what happened anyway.
There's NOTHING in the article that says the two Hong Kongers sold drugs because they were racist against Australians/intolerant of the locals. Did you even read the post? Are you following the discussion? Or did you forget to take a hit this morning, bro?
But if you want to be a smartass (who failed to prove anything) and play the "I can't argue so let me just link something that looks like it could refute a very small part of this guy's argument", I can play this game ALL day. While still pertaining to the discussion. And can refute your entire argument too.
Do you want more?
There is little to no proof of Hong Kong's intolerance. Hong Kong & China however, are living PROOF of the English's intolerance.
A quote from Karl Marx regarding the English Opium War
``It would seem as though history had first to make this whole people drunk before it could rouse them out of their hereditary stupidity.''
Marx even argued that the Chinese had a disposition for opium:
``The Chinese, it is true, are no more likely to renounce the use of opium than are the Germans to forswear tobacco.''
Wow! Look at the amount of tolerance! Power overwhelming!!~
2 little guys dealing meth? HA! How cute! It's like a lemonade stand...but for adults!
How can you "literally knock out" an argument? You're just dumb.
