Low reproduction rates are considered a characteristic of a socially advanced population, it's not like the world is overpopulated or anything. If it weren't for immigration Canada's population would be in heavy decline..

whatever point you're trying to make, it makes no sense...

This seems like another anti china flame bait thread. If we keep seeing these, points might have to be dished out...

I see no problem with this at all, if they want to show respect and honor from the country they are from good on them, thats part of living in a free country.

One of my closest friends has a Union Jack on the back of his Jeep, he gets more compliments from it then anything cause his a proud Brit just like I'm a proud Canadian and just like those kids are proud Chinese.

What's anti-China about this thread? serious question.

The cars designed by MM are absolutely hideous and designed with very poor taste, these are especially bad, because they're even more over the top. I see an anti-MMdesign thread, not an anti-China thread. Anti-MMdesign threads are nothing new. I don't even hate the Chinese flags that much, I just think the car is ugly in general.

I also don't see why we can't be maturely discuss the behavior of immigrants who have no interest in integrating with Canada, whether they be Chinese, South Asian, South American or from any other part of the world.

Sorta posting this half expecting points or a ban, but it is a serious question not intended to be provocative in a negative way.

Not sure why you expect points or a ban for asking my opinion why I think this is a flame bait thread.. When have I ever done something like that? Right, never

But anyway, if you don't think there is some anti chinese people connotation to the OP and some of the replies here, I don't know how I could explain it to you any better.

They are fucking hideous tacky, ugly cars. But this isn't a thread about hideous ugly tacky cars, it's a thread about "chinese patriotic kids in vancouver". It says so right in the thread

Maturely discussing the behavior of people is fine. Grouping all individuals as one negatively is not, at least that is my opinion. People are free to discuss whatever they want, but I don't like it when hate mongering posts start up. ANd you only really see anti china threads here by the way, I don't think I have seen anyone complaining about south americans here...

mm design gaudier than those guys with UAE/dubai flags on the hood/trunk of their car

ive got no problem with ppl having national or team pride stickers/paint jobs on their cars

usually it gives you an indication if you can expect someone hot to look @

"hmm chick driving..... brazillian/swedish/spanish flag... hmmmm potential, time to pull up slowly"

Being patriotic towards their own country/motherland is great and beneficial to everyone. However, being patriotic towards ones own country and being patriotic towards one own country while disrespecting and discriminating the foreign country is totally DIFFERENT and unacceptable. Seriously, majority of these wealthy, even the non-wealthy, immigrants from china show zero respect to Canada and its customs. They have the mentality of treating Canada as part of China.

example: I work as a cashier and this one time, this china women comes to cashier to pay and she spoke mandarin to me but i told her: I dont speak mandarin. Then, she just laughs out loudly in front me and said: "he doesnt know mandarin in mandarin" to her friend. (i understand mando but i cant speak it)

Seriously, this is CANADA, learn your english and not expect "we are entitled to learn mandarin to accommodate you like a king/queen"

p.s. I know not all immigrants from China are like this; it is just majority of them are which makes it hard to not stereotype/discriminate.

- just like how the wealthy in China hunt polar bears for leisure.

So my question is, when are these people going to take pride in their new country?

If they're like calling here, a temporary place of residence, no problemo.

I have no issues with people showing off their heritage in a small way......... just don't go overboard. I also agree with the lack of taste comments, but whatever. People have the right to be laughed at by others for their lack of taste and tact. It's not against the law, I guess.

where i draw the line is people (not naming any race) refusing to accept this Canadian way of life and ruining it for everyone else by being nationalist pricks.
I find this somewhat ironic, considering your username on a vancouver based website. Lol, btw, my username means exactly the same as yours - but in Italian.

Meeh, it's their car and having the flag on the car is no different from having Italian stripes on some Italian cars.

ugly car or not, they are contributing to the economy by spending $ on Canadian businesses. Paying first to uglify the car and then paying again to de-uglify it when it needs to be sold. Double profit???

i completely agree with skinny on this one - this is yet another thread which is posted as a chance to make fun of and be racist at mainlanders. i assume op is cantonese because most people of any race including most hk chinese people know that this is straight up racism and wouldnt publically post shit like this. however every once in a while someone posts or comments and thinks that just because theyre from hk its ok to be racist at mainlanders since ur both chinese. it doesnt matter how "fed up" u are with mainlanders - this behaviour should not be acceptable, period. if your brain cant help but be a racist prick about every situation remotely related to china, you shouldnt be allowed to bring your racist bullshit to a car enthusiast forum. if this was just posted as a few images in the hall of shame forum, it would be ok, but op clearly has a different agenda.
