    That was just a claim without killing 100s of 1000s of innocent civilians.

    Chinaman  /ˈtʃaɪnəmən/ Show Spelled Pronunciation [chahy-nuh-muhn] Show IPA
    Use Chinaman in a Sentence
    See web results for Chinaman
    See images of Chinaman
    –noun, plural -men. 1. Usually Offensive. a Chinese or a person of Chinese descent.
    2. (lowercase) a person who imports or sells china.
    3. (often lowercase) Political Slang. a person regarded as one's benefactor, sponsor, or protector: to see one's chinaman about a favor.


    It is "usually" offensive. Not always, but Usually... Chinaman is not Nigger or Slope or Chink or Spick or Spook or Coon or Cracker or anywere near what most people would consider racist. I am not defending the term, just your rage over it might be a tad bit misplaced. Just think about it...
    If you were a Chinese American your perspective would be different than it is. Use of the epithet "Chinaman" resonates with Chinese Americans because it connotes inferiority and discrimination. On Asian American forums use of this epithet is grounds for an immediate and summary ban.

    Imo DP is composed primarily of White Americans, some of whom are sometimes willing to throw around racist terms. The Mods on DP are clearly insensitive to racism against Asian Americans. The Mods are either clueless or simply don't care about the expression of racism against Asian Americans. The only Americans who don't understand the use of the epithet "Chinaman" to be negative are those who are ignorant.

    Earthworm made his racist comment on November 24, 2009. In the eight days since he posted his racist comment the Mods have done nothing. Very unprofessional.

    Please don't respond. Farewell.

    There is nothing wrong with the word "chinaman". Chinese people here use the word "chinaman" too.

    You don't know if Earthworm received an infraction or not, that is the whole point since that decision is made in provate and then he is told in provate, you have no way of knowing if he was infracted or not, unless he decides to tell you that is...

    Bottom line though, people (you included) need to stop being so sensitive. Being hurt by a term only feeds the racists.
    Seriously... think about it.

    "Chinaman" is racist? How they heck could that be considered racist in any sense of the form? They're from China, they're a man... It might be considered a bit sexist if applied to a Chinese woman but other than that????

    I think that anyone that thinks its racist is a weeeeeeee bit thin skinned.

    That is ridiculous, but typical American to blame American problems on others.

      The guard fled after the rape, witnesses said. About 50 detainees, including the student, broke through the wooden door and ran away Tuesday morning (August 4, 2009), taking two bloody sheets with them as evidence of the assault. About 10 (of the detainees) went to the local police station to report the rape, but say they were ignored.

      I asked why they were detaining me, and as a group [the guards] came in and punched and kicked me and said they wanted to kill me. I loudly cried for help and they stopped, but from then on, I didn't dare [risk another beating

    Amnesty International has documented widespread human rights violations in China. An estimated 500,000 people are currently enduring punitive detention without charge or trial, and millions are unable to access the legal system to seek redress for their grievances. Harassment, surveillance, house arrest, and imprisonment of human rights defenders are on the rise, and censorship of the Internet and other media has grown. Repression of minority groups, including Tibetans, Uighurs and Mongolians, and of Falun Gong practitioners and Christians who practice their religion outside state-sanctioned churches continues. While the recent reinstatement of Supreme People's Court review of death penalty cases may result in lower numbers of executions, China remains the leading executioner in the world.

    There are thousands of equal stories in the US, just it isnt done by the government, but rather by the "free people" against each other. Usually by the victims of freedom, the tens of millions of poor Americans.

    You complain about Chinese justice system, but dont consider the reality that China is still relatively poor per person, and that they have less prisoners than the US. Also US prisoners are sentanced to spend their whole life in jail. A lot of the time people get absurd sentences like 20 years in prison for stealing a car or something like that, or stealing money. In the US people can get 10 years in prison for not filling out a paper(tax). Or many more years than that for filling it our wrong. If thats not unjust a justice system just because its free, then certainly your view of the world is massivly skewed because of your views of "free".


    PS. China is a mostly secular country that doesnt look nice on extremism, so yes, religious groups may not be treated freely. But so what, there are many stupid laws in all regions of the world.

    Europe, the US and the rest of the world would be back to the stonage without Japan. The world economy and high tech industries cannot work without the Japanese contribution.
