    I see nothing wrong with what they did. But of course some people will get all butt-hurt.

    Yeah, my Pakistani family have been here since the 50's so I like to think I'm British, but apparently not according to people who can't see past skin colour.
    If you believe in freedom, democracy and have a British passport - you are British. The people who go about stating wild generalises do hurt the Conservative movement, but your skin colour is utterly irrelevant and I apologise for the racism. That doesn't mean you have to be a liberal. If you look at the founder of the Young British Heritage Society, you will find that the leader is actually a Muslim of Asian descent.

    Tarek Fatah - an Indian - is someone who I unequivocally admire as well. You should watch his interview with Dave Rubin.

    Absolutely not, Chinese tour groups stop at Chinatown for supper. Only decent Chinese food in town.

    Air China didn't advice its passengers to avoid black or other ethnic minorities.

    Air China did advice its passengers to avoid neighbourhoods with a significant minority population.

    The former is racist, the latter is not. The left's hysteria never ceases to amaze.
    likewise, the right's attempts to justify racism never creases to amaze

    You haven't been able to prove that the comments from Air China were racist, yet you still bang on about racism in some pathetic attempt to conform to your skewed narrative that the right are somehow closet racists incessant on dividing people by skin colour. Nevertheless, I believe it's pertinent to remind you that it is the left who obsess over identity politics. I don't care about your aesthetic, but rather your character. If you can't have a cogent and rational discussion about controversial talking topics without spurting out false accusations of racism then you don't deserve to be in an academic environment.

    Lol I actually experienced a similar thing when I went to Paris. It was a lot noisier, dirtier, non-Frnech than I thought it would be. I can understand how people might react like this in London. Probably not New York though- that city is usually portrayed as very noisy, multi-ethnic, busy.

    It literally said to take extra caution when travelling in areas inhabited by blacks, Pakistanis and Indians. Implying that these people are a threat to Chinese tourists and want to harm them or can cause harm to them.

    That is racist, in every sense of the word. Quit trying to justify this behaviour.

    Holy **** you people are disgustingly racist. I hope you dont genuinely believe this isnt offensive? Its literally suggesting that indians, pakistanis and blacks are inherently violent and dangerous. You're probably the same people who voted 'leave' because those immigrants are taking """your""" jobs right? And nah im not even on the political left, so dont begin with the buzzwords (SJW) please, most of my views are right wing, but to deny this is racism is simply pathetic.

    Are people seriously being apologists and trying to justify blatant racism?

    This forum depresses my hope for humanity.
    Nobody forces you to visit. And besides, don't you have enough stress with the a levels.

    Nothing wrong with that, what they said is accurate. The Chinese don't have to put up with any PC crap and don't have filthy SJW's. Many Chinese are actually disappointed when they go to London, as they go to enjoy British culture and see white people, they leave having done neither.

    The post by Fallen Acorns proves my point very well.
    I actually get what you mean. Last time I went to Paris, I expected it to be all nice, artistic, picturesque, French and all that. But I was pretty shocked when I got out of the la chapelle station and saw dozens of beggars, Africans and Asians who didn't speak French and dirty streets with a lot of traffic. However, most of the tourist attractions are in cleaner, more French parts of Paris.

    No, it most certainly isn't racist.

    It would be racist to tell passengers not to interract with blacks, Indians or Pakistanis.

    It is not racist to tell passengers to avoid areas with a particularly high black, Indian or Pakistani population.

    Air China did not imply that Indian, black and Pakistani people are a threat to Chinese tourists. They said that Indian, black and Pakistani neighbourhoods suffer from particularly high crime rates - which is true.
