Let’s set things straight…
After writing my first article titled “” , I received a lot of feedback, both positive and negative, with others taking the liberty to spread the word against racism on YouTube and Weibo and going as far as translating the entire article, to you all, I say “THANK YOU”. To those that felt the need to criticise, I appreciate your criticism and I am now open for further interaction, to hear your thoughts and contributions. I, however, stick and remain in my previous article, which I believe is factual.
It was humbling to know that my anger towards the negative experiences resonated with so many. This is enough proof to show the magnitude of OUR problem.

But, I have realized it brought up negative energy which I have to denounce because I still have a love for my Chinese friends and teachers.
Listen, I expressed my views in their raw form, by simply pointing out an issue that has been happening and issues that need to be addressed.
I am not preaching hate I am saying what is. As much as I am here to learn positivity, I am also here to teach positive attributes of my origin. I am not racist, I am not into hate speech. We can grow together, but we need to grow towards tolerance and acceptance.
While I focused on a lot of negative aspects between Black and Chinese people, that does not override the positive aspects between us.

The Chinese government in my city for one has gone out of their way to make sure we are catered for and comfortable beyond measure, providing us with basic necessities at a large scale and working alongside our local embassies. Their economy is burning and yet, we are their top priority. Not every country can give you free check-ups and food supplies. To keep us stress-free and occupied, they taught yoga, exercising and brought the library to our doorsteps.
Not only have we been catered for physically, but mentally and health-wise. I can imagine, if this had occurred outside of China, would foreigners receive such preferential treatment? I wonder. YOU cannot help admiring their drive and resilience, even under media onslaught they still remain resolute. The world needs to emulate such character. Some of my best times, here have been with Chinese, some of my worst times, have been with foreigners, it is the balance of every society.
We need to direct our anger in the direction of uniting against a common cause and not to manipulate this vulnerable time. Generally, Chinese people are accommodating, with the exception of a few of those that spoil the country’s goodwill. The ones that refuse to admit that the apple is going bad and insist on eating it, THAT’S the crowd I am addressing. You cannot call a chipped diamond perfect, that small chip ruins the perfection and beauty of the diamond.
It takes two to tango. So, my question to you as a reader is, will you do this dance with me to make it better for us all?. The ball is now in your court.
