    Warning: dating handsome foreigners

    Apparently China, or Hu, is concerned about Chinese dating handsome foreigners. I would assume we are talking about Chinese women and Western men. Well there is that ying and yang and being in the Bay Area one can see a lot of that. Seems the Chinese women don't believe it for a minute. Wonder what the deeper picture is?

    CCP makes the rules they get to say what ever they want. You kinda wonder how long they can keep this up with 1.4 billion people that have dirt cheap internet and talk a lot.

    Then there is that sex ratio business and lets say the locals getting a bit irked if they see their own with an outsider that looks different.

    jealousy.

    Nothing more than a bunch of dirty old men who don't want their good old country Chinese girls dating foreign devils.

    Similar backlash against Africans a few years back.

    Probably one of the reasons since there are those trying to smuggle 14 year old Vietnamese girls across the border with the promise of a good job... ahem.

    Going to be a lot of horny young males without a wife now.

    Those punks will brag to high heaven if they got a white girlfriend but lo, if one of their own found a good white guy. Yes, I'm bitching about the double standards.

    Plays to the nationalists. Those types scare me more than the CCP. The ones Versus says are incapable of self criticism or introspection.

    There's a backstory there. China went into Africa with bags of money. Only 40% of whatever promised turned up. The locals were expecting there would be jobs instead the companies brought their own workforce. So what should have been a PR coup ended up backfiring.

    people back home get word and its tit for tat.

    Contrast with the Japanese or Koreans. More win win.

    How about a white guy with an ugly mug? That's OK, right?
