“Look East”: A Chinese dream for an African student

Monalisa Moyo is a Zimbabwean national who is a Miss Africa candidate studying in the University of International Business and Economics in China. She is almost fluent in Chinese, and is planning to be the ambassador from Zimbabwe to China.

She’s very lucky that she didn’t experience discrimination in China. Okay, so to speak, China is somewhat very regionalistic when Filipinos visit the country, but for people of African descent (notably black people) would usually stand out. Maybe because the Chinese are very eager to welcome foreign people, no matter what the race or ethnicity is.

I really salute this person, at least she has a strong personality. (;

Have Mercy, people!

So this time, people are having no mercy at all. They are heartless people who were indifferent. Here goes…

1.) Muammar Gaddafi
2.) Wang Yue

The most violent end of Gaddafi

Libya’s toppled dictator is already dead. Believe it or not, people inhumanely mauled him until he got shot. If Bin Laden was assassinated and Saddam Hussain was hanged, in Gaddafi’s case, it was the most painful thing a human being will ever see. We never heard bad things about Gaddafi, right? It wasn’t until everyone wanted to “steal” his position as dictator, like, “How would I feel if I were him, eh?”

Oh, please. Why can’t those people get a life? He wasn’t bad at all, yet they’re putting him on the bad limelight. If Saddam Hussein was hanged because of what he did, OR with Bin Laden’s plan to terrorize the world… is it because the most developed countries are against him? Or was he against those countries?

So, yeah. Actually, Gaddafi was really against the USA. But who despised him? France, that is.

In France, Muslim women who are wearing their traditional outfit often face discrimination. It’s because France is involved in the war against the Gaddafi regime.

You be the judge: Is Gaddafi a good or a bad man? Why or why not?

The media portrays dictators as “bad.” Well, do you think Marcos didn’t have a good side? Gaddafi also had a good side. Every dictator (except Hitler, that is) has their own good side.

The sad end of Wang Yue

She was a victim of hit-and-run by two large vehicles. That was the most painful thing everyone could see. Now I was blaming Chinese society for being ignorant. Finally, the “Good Samaritan” law was established.

Alright. Although China’s a predominantly non-Christian society (the Chinese have many religions), it doesn’t have to mean that they should not help others in need. Good thing the one who found her deserves a reward.

Those 18 Chinese people need to be taught a lesson.

The Aftermath

I think both Gaddafi and Yue Yue suffered the worst torture ever. They were both victims of social rumble (crushed to death); in Gaddafi’s case, he was then shot after he was mauled; then put into a freezer while Yue Yue, she never survived her injuries. I feel sorry for her parents. While for Gaddafi, he deserves a final salute.

I really feel distraught about what people are doing nowadays. If they were just torturing Gaddafi for their satisfaction, they must’ve been monsters who wanted to seize his power as if they wanted to be like him, while for the Chinese, it is really NOT an excuse to leave the person for dead. Now they were again shamed for another undesirable act once more, I think they should really learn a lesson based from this experience. What now if a large vehicle “smashed” another small person, if that wouldn’t be a toddler this time? If most Chinese people are criticized for being rude, they themselves should not accept this fact as is. If they really “love” their people, or in other words, if they really exercise patriotism, they shouldn’t be ranting bad things if their fellowmen renounces Chinese citizenship for some reasons (Chinese passports are known for being one of the most restrictive passports in the world) OR throw stones at those people who are Chinese but have darker skin (especially the ladies). Take this in the case of Gong Li and Lou Jing, respectively.

Gong Li was now a Singaporean in 2009/2010 and took the oath as a part of applying for citizenship but divorced her husband. Hmmm… do you think she’s re-applying for Chinese citizenship again, or simply stayed as a Singaporean? That’s what I do not know, but anyway, she defended herself against those netizens who condemned her for being a “traitor” and a “fake foreigner.” She said, “Although I have given up my citizenship, I am still Chinese, no matter what happens.” Well, of course, I do agree with her when it comes to citizenship. Most Chinese actors are doing this for practical reasons. However, to apply for Hong Kong citizenship is different. You are still Chinese, but holding a passport issued by a Special Administrative Region, giving more opportunities to artists who are from mainland China.

Next, we go to Lou Jing this time. She is slammed by citizens for her skin color. Wait… if Filipinos actually love white skin more than dark skin, it’s not really our faults since most of us are xenocentric. I may be some sort of racist but it doesn’t mean I’m pro-racism (I only do that in private). Do you think whites are better-looking than blacks? Black people rock more, actually. They’re hotter and are more talented. They seem more versatile since it’s alright if they color their hair and have eyes that are other than brown.

Now back to Lou Jing.

Lou Jing said that she rarely felt out of place, not until she joined Go! Oriental Angel, a reality show that showcases talent, especially singing. She was born to a Chinese mother and to an African-American father whom she never seen, in Shanghai. During her stay in Go! Oriental Angel, hosts fondly called her “Chocolate Girl” and “Black Pearl,” but when netizens saw her, they are using patriotism in a wrong manner, like, “Get out of China!”

Lou Jing was born and raised in China, speaks Chinese (Mandarin and Shanghainese) and of course, considers herself Chinese. It’s only the Chinese society that is not yet ready to accept the different realities regarding race.

Open-mindedness, people

The best thing to do in life is to accept globalization. It’s everywhere, even in the DPRK. If you think that change is not yet that acceptable, I think you guys should follow the examples of countries who are accepting multiculturalism.

Regarding dictators, however, not all of them are “bad” or “evil.” Do you think monarchs are the same? Of course not! There are still absolute monarchies in the world, but they are rarely to be found.
