How does the World view China these days?

We should all eat more insects

Fried crickets are good, though they can be a little oily at times. Silkworm pupae on the other hand should never be eaten by anyone at anytime.

Although not an insect, fried bullfrog legs are actually not bad at all. Tastes like chicken.

China. What’s going on with this place? 500 million people live there but the only foreigners to visit are diplomats and people who “taught English” for a year and wanted to travel. In China they eat

Can't we all just agree that you are all a massive pack of cunts ?

a lot of people talk about it but generally as part of environmental, ethical, veganism type angles. it's certainly missing from the radar of larger mainstream culture. industrial level factory farms

How is it racist to state a fact?

Except that it’s not a fact. Only some of the non-Han minorities in the very southern part of China sometimes eat dog meat (at very special occasions).

Bringing up this nonsense every time is just lazy racism (intended to reinforce a stereotype of Chinese people being dirty in all sorts of ways).

The Chinese eat chicken claws. And duck tongues (not bad, btw). Not dog meat.

I don't see how eating dog is worse than eating other meats tbh, cows and lamb are pretty cute as well. Fish are kind of asking for it.

Cows are just as intelligent as dogs.  Don't eat any meat.  Coping carnists

So...Chinese people eat dog meat. Your use of non-Han minorities as if they are exclusionary from China is part of the Han chauvinism that's entirely problematic with the Chinese propaganda about 5,000 years of Han Chinese culture.

Don’t be daft. Out of a population of 1.3 billion maybe 20 million eat dog meat.

Your projecting the customs of a remote people with customs very different from the Han mainstream (as these minorities themselves are more than happy to confirm) onto the Han majority makes no sense whatsoever.

That’s like saying all Chinese are Muslims because Uighurs - a non-Han minority, I think you’ll agree - are Muslims.

And yes, I’m aware of the non-Uighur Muslim Hui population that’s spread out throughout China (and that is not, afaik, oppressed in any way or form). The fact that they exist does not in any way make China a Muslim country.

humans eat everything. african bush meat is basically anything that lives in the bush. monkey, chimp, sloth etc.. 

i hope lab grown meat becomes a thing sooner rather than later.

It happens throughout China - maybe not in Shanghai and Beijing (although you could probably find it in Beijing - I never spent enough time in the city), but places like Shenzen just recently banned the sale.

It's nothing at all like saying all Chinese are Muslim. It's saying that some Chinese people do in fact, eat dog. Some Chinese are Muslim, some Chinese eat dog. Nowhere did I say that all Chinese eat dog, but it is a fact that Chinese people eat dog.

Again, your insistence on using the term non-Han as if that excludes then from being Chinese is what is problematic here.

Edit: I'm not sure why you brought up the Hui and the differentiation between them and the Uighurs, but thank you - you are indeed correct that the Muslim Hui are not oppressed. The question is not one of freedom of religion. It is rather about political control on Xinjiang (which is ironic because Xinjiang was never conquered by any of the Han dynasties, rather the Manchu during the Qing dynasty). China needs to maintain control of the border regions, where the population is largely non-Han. This includes Xianjing, Tibet, and Inner Mongolia (this is not a new issue). Mao said it best: "We say China is a country vast in territory, rich in resources and large in population; as a matter of fact, it is the Han nationality whose population is large and the minority nationalities whose territory is vast and whose resources are rich, or at least in all probability their resources under the soil are rich." (In the same document Mao also ironically said: "We must not follow the example of the Soviet Union in concentrating everything in the hands of the central authorities, shackling the local authorities and denying them the right to independent action." which contrasted with his actual policies). Now while Inner Mongolia has benefited quite nicely (strong development, big rise in average GDP) they are soon going to find out what protesting against cultural assimilation will bring.

We already know how the CCP plans to control Xianjiang, and it's not pretty. It's all about political power though, and we see it manifest in other ways such as China's attempts to expand its maritime territory through the nine-dash line claim.

everyone knows "chinese people eat dogs" is a common racist statement. getting into technicalities is entering race realism territory.  american people eat cows.  it's just as bad and nobody talks about it

It's not a racist statement in my objective and subjective reality, because it's a simple statement of fact that ascribes neither a negative nor positive value to it. Koreans also eat dog (the soup is better than the steaks I find), although just like in China, the practice is diminishing (largely because of the evil western imperialism imposing their moral values).

I'm against eating any type of mammals. But eating dogs I find it particularly abnormal, just a subjective thing. Maybe we should only eat chiken or fish. Probably the Halal and jewish traditions concerning food feel kinda right in that respect

How does non-Han equal non-Chinese? Those are two different things.

Notice that you yourself also wrote

So the term is probably not that problematic as you claim as at least one other member of this forum - you - uses it freely.

 

 

And then, of course, you started quoting chairman Mao.

What happened here?

 

91% of Chinese people are Han.

The Communist Party recently prohibited the Mongol minority to use their native language in schools.
