Just to update this, the methodology of this survey is being torn apart by bloggers. Here's a good look at it: Hong Kong is NOT the Most Racist State in the World

Australia (at least where I am) is extremely racist.
Maybe I've just been sheltered from racism because I lived in Richmond all my life, but holy shit some of the people things say to you just because you are chinese

There's a saying in Chinese "a small piece of mouse shit will ruin the entire bucket of congee", not everyone is like the shameless shit in the pooping video.

If you can understand the types of Chinese dialects, you should be able to tell right away which area these uneducated fuck came from, those people who shit in the MTR or speak loudly in the public are mostly from rural area. They come to Hong Kong because they have never travelled that far or allowed to come here, the people I know who natively live in Guangzhou province would not come to Hong Kong unless they have something to buy, they say HK are now trashed by those farmers and low class people.


As for the working environment in Hong Kong, like I said, it really depends on who you are working with here. You get to think like a Honger and work smart in order to survive in such competitive environment, no one ever stay in one single company for the rest of their life. For those who chose to leave, either they have family in Canada or they couldn't find the proper job with his resume.

It's been a mixed bag when it comes to Australia. Some say it's very racist, while others say it isn't (based on personal experiences as a visible minority.) Examples would be great and which city you're located in.

she also said middle eastern people were the worst type of people on earth and should be wiped out wholesale. then proceeded to rant about the "rag head" that she purchased said box wine from.

when i was in brisbane, i asked for directions and got told "back to where ever the fuck you came from".

when i was in surfer's paradise i was on the balcony of my hostel having a smoke and watched some fight happen on the street between a couple white dudes and some Filipino looking dudes with the words "chink", "gook", "zipper head" and a few other racial expletives being thrown around.

Actually, when I was walking out of a building in Bangkok, I had some thug looking dude make some crack about white guys...something to do with their women and such. Honestly, I couldn't really make out what he said, but it struck me as the first and only time I felt offended racially.

I mean..it didn't really "offend" me per se. As I understand Thailand...white guys go, take their pick of the first class women, most of the second class and a few of the ones that used to be boys for some reason and left the rest for the locals, so I chalked it up to him being legitimately upset.

Honestly, some of my Asian brothers are making it hard for myself and other asians to travel abroad due to their manners. This creates more racism because the native canadians/europeans/americans etc see how rude some of us are and lump us all into the same category.

here's an awesome article on "uncivilized" manners.

Dire manners and 'uncivilised behaviour' of tourists is harming China's image

Quote:
The dire manners and "uncivilised behaviour" of some of its tourists are harming China's image overseas, a top official said.

Vice-Premier Wang Yang singled out "talking loudly in public places, jay-walking, spitting and wilfully carving characters on items in scenic zones".

Improving the civilised quality of the citizens [is] ... the obligations of governments at all levels VICE-PREMIER WANG YANG
Such bad manners were "often criticised by the media and have damaged the image of Chinese people and caused vicious impact", he said, according to the People's Daily website.

At a meeting on a new tourism law on Thursday, Wang said: "The quality and breeding of some tourists are not high yet."

As people get richer, foreign holidays are ever more popular. Destination countries, including debt-laden European states, have been easing visa restrictions to attract more tourists from China, but reports have emerged of complaints about etiquette.

A mainlander who had her son relieve himself in a bottle in a Hong Kong restaurant sparked online anger in February.

"Improving the civilised quality of the citizens and building a good image of Chinese tourists are the obligations of governments at all levels and relevant agencies and companies," Wang, a former party chief of Guangdong, said.

Authorities should "guide tourists to conscientiously abide by public order and social ethics, respect local religious beliefs and customs, mind their speech and behaviour … and protect the environment," he said.

Under the new Chinese law, travel agencies will be allowed to revoke their contracts with tourists who "engage in activities that violate social ethics", although it does not specify examples.

Hong Kong Travel Industry Council executive director Joseph Tung Yao-chung welcomed Wang's remarks. "I hope they [mainland tourists] really listen to state leaders. It is no use if they do not listen," he said. Not only the travel sector, but other areas such as retail and food and beverage would benefit, he said.

Some commenters on SCMP Facebook doubted Wang's remarks would have any effect.

Sara Jane Ho, principal of Beijing's Institute Sarita, China's first high-end finishing school, said: "Most Chinese do not behave this way on purpose … They grew up in a generation of basic survival; you don't have the luxury to think about manners and personal space when trying to fight to the front of the food ration line."

I'm in Melbourne CBD and have yet to experience any. Did a few roadtrips out to Albury for my fresh walnuts, honey and wine and didn't encounter there either. On a brighter note, drivers in the city are much better than those in Richmond/Vancouver, though I almost got hit by the tram a few times (damn hook turns)

I wish we had Melbourne's laneways and streetcars in the downtown core...unfortunately, the residents would probably complain about the noise.

I was living out in Kings Cross for a few weeks and didn't experience any racism there surprisingly with the amount of drunktards roaming around in that area. Only racism I experienced is during travelling on the public transport aka rail or bus that caucasian person would never choose to sit beside me unless its the last seat available. Other than that everyone has been friend and easy going. Now I live in Burwood aka chinatown.

A fascinating map of the world?s most and least racially tolerant countries

According to the original source, the numbers were wrong for Bangladesh and Hong Kong as they have reversed the number of "Yes" and "No" on the questionnaires.

See the bottom of the Washington Post article, an update and correction was made by original author Max Fisher.

"Correction: This post originally indicated that, according to the World Values Survey, 71.7 percent of Bangladeshis and 71.8 percent of Hong Kongers had said that they would not want a neighbor of a different race. In fact, those numbers appear to be substantially lower, 28.3 percent and 26.8 percent, respectively. In both cases, World Values appears to have erroneously posted the incorrect data on its Web site. "
