Don't know if you guys know but the Vancouver Sun completed a 3 part story on Richmond this week, I posted the link to the 3rd part of the story below. Very interesting read.

Part 3 of 3: Ritzy Richmond neighbourhood where many are ?poor?

If you click the link about and it asks you to pay, copy the link and go into private window on your browser.

I've personally seen this truck in Richmond and it is driven by a person not of asian decent. However I took the message that the driver is actually more offended by the new age of chinese immigrants than the chinese people are of his message.

What's the difference between the two supposed to be? If they are significantly different they might want to split their branding a bit as the vice name is not something I associate with quality.

I see people calling this rant "racist" as if race has anything to do with it. It has nothing to do with race or nationality. His issues are with the policies of the government. And if you disagree with him, you probably aren't thinking about it enough, or are a communist.

VICE vs main stream places like CNN NYtimes, is more like Vancitybuzz is to Globe and Mail

If you watch any of Vice pieces. They reiterate the headline, put some sensational info, write an ending that claims they cover all angles of an complex issue (like overfishing in the Indian ocean) under 15 minutes.

Another similarity, the reporting teams are usually green and making a name for themselves with the public.

Vice and Vancitybuzz are both insulting to people who want news more than a fancy tagline.

No it is not quite a CRA fail but lack of political will and well, political posturing.

Non disclosed foreign asset argument has been around for a very long time (vs the US one). I think we got close to try to get a handle on it once during Chretien's time, but if you start counting, it is not only new immigrants are doing it. Plenty Canadian born especially established families around the Golden Horseshoe area have been doing it, except they are buying properties in the States / Caribbean. The issue was quietly dropped when everyone realise everyone else have their hands in the cookie jar.

The statutes are in the books (it is voluntary) but like any other conservatives initiatives having the law but cutting back on resources to enforce the law = nothing gets done. Especially places like China / HK where there is no data exchanged, CRA would have to open a HK / China office and manually go through the records.. really?

The truck driver does have a case, only poorly educated Canadians get left behind.

Easy to blame CRA but they are getting the short end of the stick in this case.

Same kind of resentment since the head tax.

I wonder if the typical fake "low-income" chinese family with 2 bentley's make up for the free education/healthcare costs with sales taxes cause they eat out a lot and buy lots of luxury goods.

The system, via media brainwashing outlets, do a great job to pit ethnicities against eachother when in reality baron robbers are the only ones leeching everyones money. ie no economic protectionism (tariffs and rightful taxes against corps)
Such messages like the one on the truck show low analytical thinking which could spur even lower thinking acts of hate crime.

and any place that sell products that uses fuses, recycled paper, tetrapaks, class 4 plastic bags etc etc.. even fish like salmon likely ate plastic bits from China while they were swimming in the Pacific. Not to mention the truck he was driving in.

If he practices what he preaches.

If you're Chinese/Asian and not offended by that sign, than you're a fool.

You think the driver cares that you're a CBC/second/third/fourth generation Chinese-Canadian? Or even Chinese at all. I bet he thinks we all look alike.

No. To him you're just another Chinaman who stole his job/priced him out of the housing market/ate his dog, watever...

Nothing in the rant mentions any of the Chinese races. There is nothing "racist" about it at all.

If you think that, you're either an idiot, or just looking to provoke.

"They" are the policy makers and government in control. The race is irrelevant. Obviously they're Chinese since the person is talking about China, but that has nothing to do with anything.

If he was ranting about how Honduras runs their country, the race would happen to be about Hondurans. That doesn't make it racist.

You're arguing for the sake of argument. Instead of discussing the real issue of a corrupt government, you're trying to dumb this down to an issue of race. CiC is right about one thing - dumb people will always dumb things down to their level, and nothing ever gets done. The plebs will argue and fight over irrelevant things like "race" while the real troublemakers get away with doing what they do.

So you honestly think the driver of the truck wrote that message without any racist undertones? He was really intending criticize the Chinese government for their shitty policies in that eloquently worded message? Guess I'll just have to disagree.

“Say no to China crap"
Crap implies low quality products made in dangerous conditions by people who make less than 5cents on the dollar the crap sells for

Crap could also imply the veil of immunity they seem to have from the rest of the world. We KNOW what they do, but nobody does anything about it. But why care as long as YOUR bottom line isn't jeopardized, amirite?

Quote:
They poisoned their own people for profits
This is absolutely true. Google it. Go look at their smog covered cities, sludge covered waters and trash filled beaches. It's absurd to think that you can't even breathe when you get outside. I think China's Industrial Age has gone on long enough.

Quote:
Do you think they care about us?
C'mon RS, answer this question instead of arguing for the sake of arguing

Quote:
Protect ourselves and our economy
It could be possible this person saw too many people lose jobs because their former company shipped the jobs overseas because they'll work for lower wages. Or the person was a victim themselves. I mean, imagine working 20, 25 years for the same company, on your way to retirement and then, Surprise, you're done. Who wants to hire you when you're too old regardless of your solid work experience?

....

I don't see any racism at all. I see someone who's bitter about a system that favours the rich, enslaves the poor and withers the middle class away.

This is what happens when I don't click the article but, instead, make assumptions but please be aware that I'd rather use a Cheese Grater as a Fleshlight than read a Vanshitty Buzz article.

So we should base our arguments on speculation of intent?

If I said don't buy Canadian crap then I must be racist against Caucasians since they are the majority. Am I doing it right?
