In a startling article about China’s fears of a ‘black invasion’ from African immigrants, it appears that Asia is not as welcoming of immigrants into their country as they continue to immigrate into Africa, and any other continent they wish.
In March, amid the pomp of China’s annual rubber-stamp parliament meetings in Beijing, a politician proudly shared with reporters his proposal on how to “solve the problem of the black population in Guangdong.” The province is widely known in China to have many African migrants.
“Africans bring many security risks,” Pan Qinglin told local media (link in Chinese). As a member of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference, the nation’s top political advisory body, he urged the government to “strictly control the African people living in Guangdong and other places.”
“Black brothers often travel in droves; they are out at night out on the streets, nightclubs, and remote areas. They engage in drug trafficking, harassment of women, and fighting, which seriously disturbs law and order in Guangzhou… Africans have a high rate of AIDS and the Ebola virus that can be transmitted via body fluids… If their population [keeps growing], China will change from a nation-state to an immigration country, from a yellow country to a black-and-yellow country.”
Let me get this straight. Chinese people have been seeking refuge from poverty, oppressive regimes, famine, religious persecution and communism since…EVER, and they have the nerve to be hysterical about Africans moving into their country to work, educate themselves and pursue opportunities, and if they’re lucky, score with the girls? Hmmm…
Normally I’m all about countries exercising their sovereignty and allow who and how many people come into their territory they choose. But to readily and actively work to re-colonize countries in Africa, mate with their women (some marry, some leave the women to raise the children alone) while raising the alarm for Africans doing the same thing is just…gross.
Want Africans to stay out of China? Then stay out of Africa expecting to be treated better than your own country is willing to treat them.
