China Airlines inflight magazine accused of "RACISM"

Yeah, that place out 'there'. Anything not really Cambodia related should go here.

Telling the truth sometimes steps on a few toes. Good on the airline for warning its customers about ghetto's. Foreign airlines flying to America should do the same, specially for Obama-Iben-Lying's home town of Chicago and our nations capitol of Washington DC.

They just sound totally paranoid - watch out for all them different ethnics, don't go out alone at night, and women should never go out alone. Lol.

I don't know about London, but there are parts of LA, Chicago, Washington DC and New York City I would not drive through at night, much less walk through in the daylight. Singapore had a good idea decades ago. They built affordable apartment blocks and the government backed the financing by private citizens. If you were from one ethnic group, no one from that group could live to either side of your apartment and the apartments directly above and below your apartment. Kind of opposite of what the US government did with its "projects" ghetto housing which formed instant ghettos and crime ridden areas.

Anchor/ Tell you what Anchor, I know some great neighborhoods in America I would just love to have videos of you walking through. Most big US cities have government sponsored "projects" I would love to see you walk through carrying a sign that's says "I'm not armed."

Some years ago the Sunday edition"Boston Globe" had a big fat restaurant supplement, which listed - among all the other
ethnic-fodder establishments - several restaurant specialising in Haitian and Jamaican cuisine.

Since some of these were in Roxbury, the compilers of the restaurant supplement thoughtfully gave the names / telephone numbers of
two black-owned taxi companies willing to transport passengers into and out of Roxbury after nightfall. Most taxi firms are not.

" I would love to see you walk through carrying a sign that's says "I'm not armed.""

And I would love to see you walk through the same neighborhoods carrying a sign that says I am armed and proud that I voted for Trump.

is it racist? - yes, is it the truth? - maybe

does china need to apologise? - no (although china airline is the national airline, a paragraph in an inflight magazine does not represent the view of the country) appropriate course of action would be to ban or suspend china airline flights to UK

it doesnt detailed u to live in which apartment, it just states that in each block of apartment there is ratio for every race, once that ratio is reached, u gotta look for another apartment block

Well, you can imagine what they say about Cambodia... Do not go out after dark unless accompanied by 3 bodyguards. DO NOT approach balloon sellers under any pretext. Be aware that those girls that say you are hansum are lying to you. And watch out for flying grenades! Etc and so much more...

Back to the race issue again OP? Have you any other pet subjects that you could bang the drum about?
