Is China Racist?

Today’s article is going to be a little different from this blog. I shall put forward some information I have on China and racism, and I’m interested in what you, the reader, know is China racist.

I’m interested in your perspective and points of view on your understanding of China and race relations.

During the promotion of the new Star Wars trilogy starring John Boyega, who was one of the leads of the first movie Star Wars the Force Awakens (2015) however, during Lucasfilm’s and Disney’s promotion of his character Finn in the China market, John Boyega was perceived as a lesser character.

The promotional poster for the Star Wars movie in China had his character size on the posters reduced by 80%.

This also happened to another actor Chadwick Aaron Boseman in promoting the critically acclaimed Black Panther movie released in 2018.In the promotions of the Black Panther movie, the lead character’s face was removed from the marketing so that the Chinese people could not see there was a black man as the lead character.

What I am asking is China racist is it due to cultural reasons or political reasons, or the fact that China, in regards to its dominant culture, the group is the ethnic and native Han Chinese being 95% of the population of the nation and is not hard greater exposure to different cultures and peoples of different skin tones.

What are Your Thoughts

I am very interested in your point of view is why China is racist, or is it not racist in any other nation or region in the Far East from my point of view as a man that is white and has grown up in the United Kingdom which is one of the wealthiest nations on the planet.

My nation since the end of the Second World War in 1945 and the collapse or quiet death is a much more accurate description of the old British Empire, which saw immigration from all around the globe from the colonies and territories back to the United Kingdom for over 70 years.

By the end of the 21st century, the white majority will become a minority and a strong community of immigrants throughout cities, particularly in England, which means the UK has had plenty of time to adapt to the global inflow of different peoples and cultures.

In contrast, we have places like China, Japan, India and South Korea that are dominant and made up of their ethnic culture groups, which means the societies are, at least on the surface, politically united in their culture that is unified.

What I believe this means is that racism is due to a lack of exposure to over cultures and different societies, with England being a former global empire which had the largest empire world will ever see and will most likely ever see the English language and traditions were exported around the globe.

And now, with the end of the empire, like the Romans, they experience mass migration from outside of the Empire and from within the Empire, which will lead to mass migration to more advanced and developed regions.

China doesn’t have this due to the century of humiliation from 1839 to 1949 and due to being a basket case of a nation due to political instability until the opening up of the nation under the leadership of Deng Xiaoping (22 August 1904–19 February 1997) was a Chinese revolutionary and statesman who served as the paramount leader of the People’s Republic of China (PRC) from December 1978 to November 1989.

He is the man, along with his successors to the leadership of the Chinese Communist Party and China, thus transformed the nation from a failure to a regional, if not global, power over the last 40 years.
