It seems compared to Covid restrictions and fear of contracting it from foreigners the Aids scare in the 80s and 90s in China was child’s play.
It’s also interesting to observe that at least ppl in EU seem to be less scared of Covid and death in general than ppl in Chinese speaking regions. Don’t know about J-Pan or Korea
I'm looking forward to the day Carrie has to explain that Xi Dada has declared Covid 19 endemic. I'm seeing a lot of people sending their helpers out to loot the supermarkets and then bleaching all the products and the helper when she gets back.... should be the highlight of 2023.
It definitely happens to us whites as well bus and MTR. A few years ago my uncle came over from Zimbabwe with his wife who was truly very black and suffered all the usual outlined elsewhere on this thread, but also entered into the spirit of things admirably with demented stares, eyes wide open etc.
l love the uncomfortableness of some of the locals when you take that last MTR seat!
