    Chinese - at it again

    How on god's given earth do you arrive in Africa and then tell the locals to leave.

    Fuck this. These peasant monkey Chinese need to be eradicated - like the locusts they are.

    ?No Africans? policy at Chinese restaurant in Kenya prompts arrest, outrage | Public Radio International
    Lazy bastard.

    Kenyan officials have arrested the owner of a Chinese restaurant in Nairobi — after it stopped most Africans from entering after 5 p.m.

    Even journalists from Kenya’s biggest newspaper, The Daily Nation, were turned away. “Only taxi drivers or Africans accompanied by Chinese, European or Indian patrons are allowed into the compound,” the article said.

    The paper quoted restaurant manager Esther Zhao, saying that the “no Africans” policy was based on security concerns. “We don’t admit Africans that we don’t know because you never know who is Al-Shabaab and who isn’t,” she said in reference to the militant group that’s been active in Kenya and neighboring Somalia.

    The issue sparked swift outrage in the Twittersphere under the hashtags #noblacksallowed and #racistrestaurant. Hours later, the restaurant's owner was arrested for operating without a license.

    Whatever ends up happening with this particular Chinese business in Kenya, the controversy highlights simmering tensions created by region’s growing economic interdependence with China. Keep in mind that between 1 million and 2 million Chinese people have moved to Africa in about the last 15 years.

    “These are people from all walks of life, but mostly people from working classes to the lower middle classes of China,” says Howard French, author of the book, “China’s Second Continent.”

    For the most part, French says these newcomers are, “people who have very little previous knowledge of, and certainly no previous experience of, Africa. And they come to Africa bringing a lot of … baggage of prejudice and stereotypes about the African continent.”

    Chinese people living and working in Africa have a whole range of attitudes about the people and place, French points out. But there is also a sense of entitlement among many Chinese business people who have come to Africa.

    “There’s a special irony here,” French says. China’s sense of its own history has placed great emphasis on the impact of Western imperialism on the Chinese motherland. It may be apocryphal, French says, but there is a well-known image from the era of high European colonial influence in China that began in the mid-19th century and lasted roughly a century. The image that has been played up in Chinese propaganda is that of a sign reading, ‘No Chinese or dogs allowed.’

    “So, now you have the Chinese arriving in an African setting replicating to some extent the same sort of behavior, the same sort of attitudes,” French says.

    For many Chinese business people, French says the allure of Africa is still strong. “There’s a whole lore in China, where Africa has attained this image of this El Dorado: a place [that] with very little experience and little capital, you can start up your own companies, you can attain land, you can engage very profitably in trade, you can strike it rich quickly.”

    ...or any European colonial period, for that matter.

    We wouldn't want to touch upon any such examples as worst comparatives, would we?

    And for how long was it not so?

    The question by BB was:
    "How on god's given earth do you arrive in Africa and then tell the locals to leave"

    No timestamp nor dates were given . . . or are you suggesting that the whites didn't do exactly what BB is decrying, except on a massively larger scale?

    You're an idiot.

    Some Chinaman smash your old lady's backdoor in or something?

    You're way off the mark. You just don't understand 'em.

    I don't understand what you're getting at here.
    It sounds like you're justifying it on the basis that the whites did it previously.
    Did you approve of the previous behaviour of the whites?
    And using a races colour to identify them? The 'whites'? You're usually the first to decry this sort of thing. I'm sure if someone had referred to the 'yellows' there would have been a right old hue and cry.

    Just wait and see what happens when the Chinese start building the Thai railways. The entire corridor will be a no-go area except for whom they decide will enter.

    The Chinese bought off Kenya's government some while ago. It's what they do when they go into a target market in return for getting for what they want and they certainly do exploit with a vengeance.

    The Vietnamese however have the right idea and won't hesitate to burn down a factory or two and string up a few Sinks, just to keep them honest.

    The Thai of course will do nothing except whine.

    I think you maybe right there.

    Thais are whining like fwk about Chinese bad behaviour in CM, but putting up with it (to a degree) for the income they generate.

    Worse than a bunch of Germans on holliday in Spain, take over everything, a laager mentality.

    Not at all . . . I just find a South African decrying bigotry on the same continent and towards the 'same' people a tad difficult to accept.

    I spent many business trips in pre-Apartheid SA as well as post . . . both have their positives and negatives, but a poster calling himself Baas having a go at Chinese for bigotry towards blacks is . . . interesting

    To be fair, any restaurant with "No Indians" allowed would get my custom, be it in India or not, so let's not be too aghast at their policies.
