I'm with Ulic on this one, I'm surprised not more people find this racist?

It looks pretty racist to me given the entire context of the situation.

Plus the whole idea of corruption and people making shitty products to get rich quick isn't exclusive to China. I'm sure there are other places where products are made and suck or have corners cut for profit. Plus this is not the case with ALL China made products. If everything made from China was poisonous we'd all be dead by now considering how much of the goods we consume day to day without realizing it.

But anyways, seems pretty racist to me as Ulic pointed out.

Sometimes I'm ashamed by what some mainlanders do too (i.e. kids pissing in the mall, rudeness, etc), but that still doesn't make this message less racist.

I posted this in the comment section but thought it bears repeating here:

There's a reason why people are sensitive to "China Sucks" and why "Germany Sucks" or "Ireland Sucks" doesn't hold as nearly much baggage. I'm sorry but most White people will never understand this reasoning because they never grew up with it.

It's because as an Asian person you're automatically grouped as "Chinese" whether or not you're of that ethnic origin or something else. You're singled (however subconsciously) out as an "other" just on the basis of your appearance and the biggest and baddest "other" in this day and age is China. No one will single a white person out for their European ancestry unless they flaunt it or are obvious about it.

Case in point: if an Asian person buys a house its "oh he bought that with dirty ill gotten communist party money", even if he's not even Chinese! But a white person here is likely never going to be associated with the likes of Vladamir Putin even if he's of Slavic origin.

I don't have to tell Asians who grew up here how easy it is to go from "China sucks" to "Chinese people suck" to "All you Asians should just go home" on the school playground. Unfortunately for some we haven't progressed much from grade-school it seems.

As mentioned by a lot of people here, the statement is more likely racist than not given the context.

But, my statement is "so what" everyone is a little racist to some degree. Racism will always be around and you are naive to think it will ever be abolished totally. One perspective I take from growing up in different continents is that I hate everyone "equally". In other words I am a Misanthrope- Google the definition.

Hi guys,

Is this racist?

Racist graffiti prompts action from Nanaimo mayor - British Columbia - CBC News

Yes? No? Discuss.

So we have one example where the guy with the truck with a message suggesting racist undertones. The example I posted is a display of blatant racism.

We have been socially engineered from a young age to say no to drugs, no to strangers, not to racism and all sorts of other things in life. Is it safe to say we are too sensitive? That's a touchy subject open for debate, but socially and culturally, we will think the message from the truck is "racist" but is it really? I would consider it more of an ignorant and misconstrued message more than anything.

Having said that, fuck you all. I'm going to meet multicartural for a quadruple Americano at Milano Coffee in Gastown.

Safe to say? You don't have to say anything, society is full of fucking babies, and anything you do or say these days will have "consequences."

Bcrdukes is the biggest self-hating Asian out there. His hipster persona comes from a very deep dark pit of self-loathing.

You don't even know the definition of self-hating until you go to a SlutWalk and meet the male feminists.

"I believe in free speech but only if I agree with your speech"

That's where we are at now. Our culture has become over developed to the point where we micro analyze everything and have allowed cynicism and pessimism to take over all in the name of 'political correctness'.

WIth Social Media, any basement dwelling anti-social trilobite can start a blog / buzz page and post garbage just for the sake of stirring the toilet and it seems to work. Now we have garbage stories where someone is offended by something polluting the airwaves where stories of greater importance only get a very small fraction of coverage...

I feel sorry for the children growing up as we speak. Their innocence and optimistic outlook of the world will be completely levelled when they hit the tween age.

Save it. They are too dumb to understand what you are saying.

Just say no to China crap. They are retarded. They don't even know they are being fucked. This is ture so it is not racist.

if you are offended by this massage you shouldgo kill yourself.

you guys REALLY fucking thing that that truck driver is arguing about politics and corruption? HAHAHA...

you guys saying they REALLY DID POISON THEIR OWN PEOPLE... who the fuck is THEY.

you think jack ma is one of those people?

lol.

THEY REALLY DID.

GUESS WHAT

WESTERNERS EXTORT AND ENSLAVE EVERYONE ELSE. IT'S TRUE. IT'S FACT. GOOGLE IT. IT'S WRITTEN IN HISTORY. ALL OF THEM. THEY ALL DO IT.

i cannot seriously believe you of all people skinnypupp... only read the words on the back of the truck... like they are some words out of a text book.

it's on a back of a fuckin hick ass truck. and someone's already said what this guy appears to be like. AND with all the fuckin mainlander hate going around in the world, let alone vancouver.

you FUCKING THINK HE'S TALKING ABOUT GEOPOLITICS OR CAPITALISM OR SOME SHIT?!

i cannot believe ANY OF YOU think there is no racist undertone.

you're only reading the text on the truck. you're not looking at the whole picture of the situation.

i fucking guarantee you, if you go up to that fuckin guy, and ask him in depth questions about the fuckin politics and capitalism. he's going to spit in your fucking chink ass face, and then tell you you're a dumb fuck and he has no idea what the fuck youre talking about... (and go back to china).

or maybe he's the type that will offer you a seat at his victorian style table, and offer you a cup of english tea in a gold rimmed tea cup. and discuss the very troubling and outrageous acts of corruption and how western capitalism has turned our own soil into a capitalistic battleground.

YEAH OK.


some people aren't fucking stupid. they don't need things to be presented in obvious ways to get a clue.

if u hated chinese people, ... and you wanted the world to know. .. no human being is stupid enough to write hate crime on their fucking truck and go to prison for that shit.

they do it carefully. and if you can't fucking see through that... fucking facepalm man.

you really really really REALLY think he's talking about corruption? LOL you don't think your stay in HK with all the mainlander haters, and all the CORRUPTION news that you constantly hear about has skewed your perspective and interpretation to something that you can understand more?

seriously man... SERIOUSLY get a clue.

you don't need to be a genius to know when a white dude, shows up at your door with those words printed on his t-shirt and all his friends doing the same... to know they want you out, because you're chinese.

"oh... i didn't have a clue, the words didn't grammatically dictate racism, and they didn't call me a chink, so i assumed they were talking about politics and other deep rooted issues."





listen closely... read closely... to the words he's CAREFULLY CHOSEN to PRESENT to the PUBLIC.

any writer, any artist, anyone with HALF A FUCKING BRAIN and any amount of EQ would automatically pick up on the NOT SO SUBTLE message he's trying to send out.


it's obviously a short sighted problem... the people that don't think it's racist, don't think it's racist because THEY AGREE with it... and they don't realise that if you agree with it, you're blind to the other side.

just cuz you think you aren't racist, and you agree with something, doesn't make it NOT racist.




just answer this question:

if we go up to that guy, and we find out HE IS a racist. and he hates chinese people.
would you change your mind on the shit on the truck?

if yes, then you obviously have woken up to a new perspective and can now agree with what i have said.

if NO, then you are just still grammatically, left brained, systematically reading the message, and ONLY reading the message as if it were some thought in your own head. breaking down the words by structure and grammar. linearly. like a fucking computer trying to decode some text.

except youre not a fucking computer. and there's a WHOLE LOT MORE than just the fucking text to interpret.

get a clue, this isn't a protest against chinese made products. this isn't a protest about corruption or capitalism.

this is a protest against chinese people, taking over "his" country and "his culture" and he doesn't fucking like it.
no they don't care about "his" country and "his culture". this is a protest against mainlanders showing up everywhere, and taking over everything. and doing what "they" do... and continuing to be "chinese" people and not being "assimilated" into "canadians".

basically, saying no to anything chinese.

learn to read between the lines man.

In literal sense, there is some truth to what the guy wrote on his truck. However, as Ulic so bluntly points out, I would be willing to bet he is a hill-billy racist who is most likely incapable of having a discussion about the global political economy and capitalism. Could be wrong....

But if that is the case, I do think that is quite offensive and racist, as he is simply writing some bullshit that makes a bit of sense to get his own method of hate across and attract some people to the bandwagon.

I think when someone makes the effort to go and put that on their truck, it becomes a lot more serious because they are trying to gather a following and create hate. You're either with us or against us sort of mentality. I think that's what gives away his obvious racist ideologies.
