Prejudice badly hurts overseas Chinese

(People's Daily Online)

Edited and Translated by Yao Chun, People's Daily Online

Four overseas Chinese who live in San Fernando Valley, the United States were expelled by a white man when playing tennis in a public tennis court in a white neighborhood. The white man drove them with the excuse that he had occupied all the tennis court and some students would come to attend tennis class. But outside the court there was a sign saying that private lessons were prohibited on this public tennis court.

According to statistics, China has the most emigrants in the world and the amount of overseas Chinese has reached more than 50 million. But more people do not mean greater strength. In many countries and regions Chinese people are always expelled with race prejudice.

According to an opinion poll, 58 percent overseas Chinese have suffered from discrimination. Once Ms. Li took her child to play in the park and the child left the eaten candy beside. At this time, a white mother came and told Ms. Li to clean it up when she left so as to avoid damaging the environment. Ms. Li felt upset being treated as a child.

On Aug. 29, Alberto Barbera, the president of Venice Film Festival said that there would be a surprise but definitely not Chinese films, which really hurt Chinese films.
