Topless foreigners!


#1

From today’s Taipei Times:

http://www.taipeitimes.com/news/2002/06/24/story/0000141606

“To support his remarks, Wang showed video footage during the press conference supplied by his informer. The footage depicted scenes of people, some topless, dancing by a fire and others allegedly smoking marijuana.”

Gee…I think I smell a whiff of XENOPHOBIA in the air…

I saw this footage many times yesterday on the TV news. They must have played it every ten minutes there for a while. They kept repeating that it was a “waiguoren” party. I didn’t see one waiguoren in the footage. Maybe they were Asian waiguoren?

There are already two different threads on this topic: Foreign Population Slandered by Legislator and Huashan Foreigner Drug Scandal.

Don’t worry too much about what legislators say. My boss and basically everybody I know calls them ‘those piggies’ in Chinese so no-one respects what they say. However it’s good if someone is organising a little protest cos anti-foreigner and drug mania stuff is getting out of hand (and they haven’t even gone to ChungLi yet!!!)

As stated by cranky laowai two threads on this topic already exist, thus I am closing this thread. Please see: : http://oriented.org/cgi-bin/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic&f=29&t=000483 or
