The Chinese haven’t officially succumbed to political correctness. That’s the one thing communism has been good for.
Nevertheless, communism doesn’t immune the Chicoms from criticism of by the weenies of the world. So now Chinese called racist.
According to the New York Post, a Chinese airlines embroiled itself in controversy over an article about neighborhoods to avoid in London:
A top Chinese airline has sparked a race row after its in-flight magazine warned travelers to London to dodge the city’s “ethnic minority” areas.
The shocking article in the latest edition of Wings of China — distributed on Air China — has been branded “racist,” “outrageous” and “insulting.”
“London is generally a safe place to travel, however precautions are needed when entering areas mainly populated by Indians, Pakistanis and black people,” it reads.
“We advise tourists not to go out alone at night, and females always to be accompanied by another person when travelling.”
The phrase is then repeated in both Mandarin and English in the magazine’s in-depth feature on the multi-cultural capital.
This is good advice. If I wrote a travel book, I would tell people to avoid East St. Louis and North St. Louis. When friends are visiting or even driving through St. Louis, I tell them to gas upb before going to either area.
Locals know not to use the gas station at the corner of N. Kingshighway and Delmar. That is unless you want to get robbed. I would be remiss NOT to tell you this, if you were visiting or passing through.
But we live in a time of nonsense. Where warning people about things that could save their lives is considered “racist.”
Multiculturalism is racist, when it’s forced on people. Countries have a culture. They develop subcultures naturally, or at least they should. What Liberals do is force their “culture du jour” on citizens.
If the world is so Liberal, then why is it so dangerous?
