    What do you mean "perhaps it got lost in translation"? It clearly states to avoid people just because of their colour.

    So it was sound advice then, shame it had to be revoked by the PC brigade.

    I think its more useful to look at statistics, than individual cases that are reported by the press completely at random, no matter how "SHOCKING" they are.

    So very true.

    Oh look, the stats back up what we hear in the news. And confirms the validity of China's Air advice to its customers. Fancy that.

    British-Asian here. My dad is as white as it gets. The kind of person who goes "British and English aren't the same". My mum is your typical South East Asian. Short, tan, and short. Out of 3 children, I'm the only one that isn't white. This gets our family a lot of odd looks, and my siblings a lot of attention.
    Living in SEA, and going to school with a lot of Chinese students, teaches you a lot about their culture, and the fact that this Chinese airline would say something like that doesn't really come as a surprise- nor does it offend me. If you've lived in the UK your whole life, don't claim to know anything about Asian culture lol. If you went to Asia, you would want to avoid poor, industrial, crime-ridden areas too? right? Well to this airline, that's all they were doing.

    Where do you think the stereotype originates from?

    Everyone in Britain is aware that there are no go areas, what's controversial about warning foreigners?
