    When did Chinese become a race? Over the top ******** PC garbage.

    If someone said to kill everyone in England to repay the debt, my mind would never jump to "omgzorz you hate white people"

    Agreed - I don't see how this isn't a joke.

    This is a strange story because, if anything, the Chinese are really known for their great sense of humor.

    It was an attempt at a joke, but IMO a failed one.

    At the risk of taking this too seriously (but when has that ever stopped me) ...

    Imagine a popular late night Islamic comedy show where they had a table of children addressing the question: Jihad, what should we do about western culture?

    And one of the little boys says, "Infidels! We should kill them all!"

    Is anybody here laughing over that?

    Actually yes. It's a common joke from skit shows to South Park.

    But seriously. Anyone with half a brain should be able to tell the sarcasm in that skit. I bet a good portion of the protesters didn't even see the skit.

    The skit shows (as far as I can tell) and South Park originate from Western sources. So you know the people behind the joke are making as much fun about the Mid East as they are the West.

    I was talking about a show originating in the Mid East and Islamic boy speaking his own mind, not being scripted and fed comic lines.

    These are two different things entirely.
