    Hi, man. In one of my previous threads, somebody compared me to you. I don't know why, but just ignore the knobs that try to slag you off, because they just do that to make people feel irate.

    I've had a pretty bad experience which has impacted not learning much of the language. I don't think that speaking Mandarin gets much respect or negates racism. Speaking Mandarin kind of gets the reaction of a dog that's learned a good trick. It's strategically very wise if you want to get into business, so definitely do it. They're going to lie and trick you no matter what language you speak, though. So, maybe doing everything in bilingual writing would still help. I wouldn't expect that learning Mandarin will "lighten" you in their eyes, though.

    China doesn't have guns. I haven't heard about any expats getting organ-harvested.
    But, yes. Chinese are super racist. I don't know how different they might treat you as an employee or neighbor. But any foreigner who isn't white is "low", I have not noticed there isn't an perception of gradients of dark skin. For example, latinos are ok if they look white... not that latinos are ok or not ok, just looking white is good and not looking white is bad. Just last night, I saw a video of a British guy just randomly asking women on the street if they liked white or dark foreigners, and they unabashedly said that white was good and "No" to any questions about dark foreigners. Racism here is practically encouraged because it keeps them at the top of whatever scale they judge humanity by. My roommate works at a company that helps Chinese emigrate to other countries. An American consultant says "nigger" in Chinese and always tells them what areas of project cities have the most black people. My roommate said that the American may not even be racist, but he's been in China so long that he knows they expect him to act like it.

    I'm sure you can get prostitutes with no problem, but most Chinese girls will be reluctant to date you. There are rare exceptions, like a friend who likes black guys (in theory, having never met one). I don't know how enlightened Harbin is. People in Shanghai probably wouldn't tell you that you smell like an "India person", but people from the small city I was in first would say things like that.

    I don't want to freak you out, but in all honesty, I don't know why any foreigner who isn't white would come to China. It's hard enough that they're nice to me while lying through their teeth and trying to trick and steal from me at every opportunity. If I were you, I'd prepare for the worst, and it may not be as bad.

    It's softer than the 'ch' sound, closer to the 'sh' sound but with a tongue curl.

    It's not about being PC or not. It's about language precision. If one wishes to communicate 'x', they shouldn't say 'y'.

    Within the chinese dialects that I speak, I honestly don't recall any usage of the 'ks' sound of the English 'x'. What's even more funny is that whomever translated the unique 'sh' sound from Mandarin into the English 'x' letter needs to have their head examined.

    Look to your blurring of culture and race. If 2nd gens or greater don't manifest the same behaviours, then it's cultural rather than racial.

    You claim homogeneity among Asians but there are many Asian languages and cultures. That said, China's culture has had a huge impact on many Asian cultures from historical conquering, mass immigration and being the first country in East Asia to have a written language.

    Chinese script is pictorial and doesn't pluralise with an additional 's'. They either say a form of 'many' or use specific numbers to pluralise.

    How does your language pluralise?

    Not at all since I don't fall into the described category. If anything, you fall within the described category more than I do so I'm pointing out your hypocrisy.

    No doubt but that still doesn't change the fact that you're a South Asian, living on the continent of Asia.

    I've travelled to a number of Asian countries. Regardless, I don't deny objective classifications of geographical locations. That's your delusion.

    S and SE Asians are brown skinned. You're Asian. Deal with it.

    Yes they are. They're South Asians.
