Canadian Expat On China

A Canadian expat shares his observations of the Chinese:
It has been my consistent experience that foreigners are viewed locally as resources to be exploited, by right of skin color, ethnicity and location of birth. This incident, one of many, has in no way altered my opinion.
Perhaps of most interest; we were discussing the myriad ways by which the Chinese take financial advantage of Westerners (through dishonest and illegal contracts and outright lying and cheating), when she came up with the comment that she felt Chinese were more intelligent than Westerners, by virtue of their ability to ‘outsmart’ them in business dealings. Needless to say, I merely nodded and smiled.
