    What's Hatuey's deal? He'd rather support an autocratic government with a terrible human rights record than a democratic country and an ally?

    However when the laws on the books are truly looked at, it kind of does suck to be a white, middle-class male, as the number of laws, policies, procedures etc. which discriminate against you are staggering. Applying for a job? Better hope no one applying is not a white man, otherwise you're screwed. Often times because of how easy it is to sue for perceived discrimination these days.

    Going to college? Not unless you scored perfectly on the SATs, have the coveted "My family is rich" scholarship, or are an ethnic minority.
    applying for med school? if you are a white male, you better be at least 20 MCAT points smarter than any black or female applicants.

    Plus inherent racial prejudices still exist in many parts of the country.
    yeah, like those against white southerners

    bolded part-I hate that too. Not just that they're white but they are usually beautiful too. No beautiful black women or ugly white women that I can think of who make the news for more than a day.

And then I went off to college and got a little crazy living on campus and my grades were ****ty, and my parents made me move back home. I'm kind of ashamed to say I still have a lot of growing up to do even at 20, but I know if my parents weren't there to push me at the very beginning I'd be in a very different place right now.
    We are like that with our kids, but today, most kids spend more time in cram schools than at home...

    He has a very mistaken view of what China is really like. I have lived there, and we (I presume you speak and read Chinese) know more about the culture than he does...

    That hasn't been my experience, but if it's true with yours then man I feel sorry for all those kids. I hate how our public school culture nowadays is so standardized-test-oriented. Teachers end up teaching the test instead of teaching kids the real stuff, and in addition standardized tests aren't a great measure of intelligence, which is too complex and multifaceted to measure accurately using multiple choice.

    My mom practices Falun Gong and most of her close friends have either suffered persecution at the hands of the CCP or have relatives that have been victims. The ChiComs are first-rate when it comes to political and religious repression. I speak Mandarin at home but my reading/writing isn't all that hot, it's getting better though because I chat online with my cousins and Taiwanese friends in Chinese so I'm working on that. Do you speak Taiwanese at all? Taiwanese is like the language my parents use when they're saying **** about me behind my back but they're in the same room.
