Reply to "New "Africa edition" of China Daily part of Chinese media influence on the continent"

But, for me ... it simply solidified my belief that .... nobody likes Black people.  No matter where they are.  We're always the least respected ... and most maligned people there.

 

 

This is what usually catches my attention.  I understand it, and agree but not often for the reasons people may think.  We (understandably) look at white supremacy from the perspective of how it manifest against us (i.e. Dr. Fransis's if you're Black get back etc).  However, the same thing exist among "people of color" (which is a term typically meant to exclude that people lacking color). 

 

There are efforts to redefine relationships that do not use western influences as an intermediary or interpret.  This is why there are noticeably different articles and perspectives coming from news and journalist that originate in Asia or Africa concerning their relationships.  

 

I don't suggest that everything is all flowery perfect, but its there's also ongoing attempts to continue controlling how we view the world and how we perceive the world viewing us (and why).

 

I don't I've seen the particular piece on the Discovery channel, however, I remain skeptical on those types of "documentaries".  Some of what is out there is embarrassingly uninformed and/or poorly researched regarding the history, development and culture of China.  

 

......we not gonna even talk about the Black Chinese.  Yes, the Black man has been in China for a very, very long time.
