Someone in another thread asked a good question: Why haven’t more foreign faces been placed on television or been quoted in newspapers talking about something of substance?
I really enjoy living here. However, let’s try to kill some of the stereotypes that lay so deeply in the minds of so many.
Just last night I saw a show that invited foreigners (big nose optional) on as guests, but the only thing they were talking about was how much they liked or disliked that lady with the blue eye-liner and big hats, whose name I’ve purposefully neglected to remember.
Why not form a group of 10 or 12 people through this Forumosa board and press for air-time?
The show could showcase foreigner’s opinions on:
- typical treatment of foreigners;
- experiences adapting to Taiwanese culture (food, misconceptions, religious customs);
- the expatriat community;
- the future.
The biggest shock of the show: It would be entirely in Chinese! :mrgreen: It would be huge.
