Chinese Mother + African-American Father = Social Pariah/Outcast in China.
This is nothing new, and is not limited to the Chinese. Many Asian cultures are very racist. The article could have read Japan instead of China
without any other change.
It is a good thing that Lou Jing is getting so much attention. She is opening the door on a subject that is long overdue for China to face.
However, there is a part of me that wonders how much of this is also Propaganda. For the fact that the article stated:
"In the same year that Americans welcome Obama to the White House, we can't even accept this girl with a different skin colour."
It makes it apparent that this is not just a racially charged issue, but is being made out to be a Politically charged issue. As Obama is heading to
China in a month, it makes one wonder the timing of this news. It seems that this an an attempt to show that China is not yet ready for Globalisation,
unlike the "open-minded" United States that has moved beyond Racism to vote a multi-racial man to the position of POTUS.
