Forums > Living in Kunming > How are Black-Aqmericans treated?

@zenaqu The older generation tend to be more bias since they are more set in their ways. You are a graduate student and young. Younger people are more open to new ideas and new things generally. Even in America when a black man is with a white woman, people still make comments and we have a more open society. Some people just can't get over the fact that we are all the same underneath. Let me ask you a question. If you were seeing a black woman or men, would your parents and grandparents approve? Most Chinese families still can't accept interracial relationships be them white/black/Asian or other.

That's true. The darker you are the more the prejudice. I'd read several articles about the influx of Africans in Guang Zhou and how they are creating tensions between them and the Chinese locals. Here in Kunming I think that you will be mostly alright. Don't worry about it.

Like the plaque. Ha..ha. Just kidding. Yes, there is discrimination especially against blacks. Thanks to all the movies depicting blacks as thugs and gangsters. You will definitely have a harder time getting a job but it's not impossible. You will be looked at more. My wife's friend (my wife is Chinese) daughter is seeing/dating a black guy (American) and her mother and entire family are freaking out! Just smile and be friendly and hope for the best. Welcome to Kunming!

It's sad that the first programs to be cut are the music and art programs in America. Too little importance are given to this not realizing that having these programs spurs creativity and keep the kids out of trouble too. Kudos to the Village Progress!

No one is ask to be born into this world and yet here we are. What's sad is we as a society are losing compassion and respect not only to our own parents but to our fellow human being. I agree that no person should bring a child into this world with the expectation to be 'taken care of' in their old age. What's sad is the way some children treat their parents worse than animals.

The days of your child taking care of you in your old age is pretty much over. A lot of children move away and have their own families to take care. They need to go where the jobs and opportunities are. Many times it's not in the cities they were raised in. Sadly, I feel that China is becoming more and more like the west in which aging parents are put in nursing home left to die.
