A while back i was on a site full of douchenozzles that have a hateon for china and there was a guy describinghis beatdown from a fewfellas he was apparently trying to help. In his description he was just going on and on with the most racist of comments and I believe he was wanting people to support his bile. I asked him if his attitude had anything to do with him being beaten up and was instantly labeled all sorts of unflattering thing. My original point was that maybe he had somewhat contributed to what happened to him but I guess personal responsibility is thrown out the window when coming here. As far as I know I am still being belittled over there but I stick to my assertion that maybe he should discover what his role in it was.
I really believe that because we are a minority here we need to be extra cautious when getting involved in things. I saw one foreigner step into a fight between a guy and a group of attackers only to be turned on by everyone even the guy who was being attacked. I really do not think any Chines person will step in for a foreigner if there is a fight for a few reasons. They will be labelled traitors to the country for one, they will have to explain things to the police which I am sure they do not want to do and there is a certain amount of fear.
I think the best thing to do and it sounds defeatist is to keep your head down, mind your ps and qs and remeber that you are ultimately alone in a country of 1.3 billion people.
