TL/DR: Chinese student Yang Shuping praises the US for its “fresh air” first literally then figuratively (free speech etc.). Other Chinese students react.
Here’s the full speech. TL/DW: I was going to die from the pollution in China and had no idea how awesome the US is because you can talk about the Rodney King beating openly.
Here’s one part of the reaction. TL/DW: China has awesome air quality and more importantly delicious food, it’s not true that Chinese live in apartments, we all have houses with gardens, use your critical thinking, and don’t be racist against Chinese!
And here’s a cute little parody of Yang’s speech. TL/DW: I was going to die in the US from gun violence, so I moved to China.
But where’s the parody of the reaction? Where’s the don’t be racist against Americans and all that?
To be fair, Kunming is one of the cleanest cities in China, air quality wise. (Still, that’s not saying much.)
Also, one of the contributors to the reaction video suggests looking at things from Yang’s perspective. But my favorite has to be the “critical thinking” guy.
