What It’s Like to Be Black in China

Being black in China is not easy, but it’s not as bad as many would have you think, according to our two guests this week who are both black immigrants currently living in Beijing. Sure, people stare a lot and there are often some inappropriate questions about hair and skin color, but more often than not says Black Lives in China creator Nicole Bonnah, those awkward questions come from a good place — curiosity.

Nicole, originally from the United Kingdom, is a Beijing-based journalist who is embarking on an ambitious documentary film project about daily life for black immigrants living across China. One of the people Nicole interviewed for the film was Tiffany Johnson, an African-American educator also based in Beijing.

Tiffany, like Nicole, said China’s largely homogeneous culture and inexperience in dealing with diversity does lead to some awkward encounters, but she adds that it would be incorrect to label this “racism.” Compared to the United States, where race is a filter for almost everything in society, the Chinese are largely ignorant about issues of race. So when Chinese people say things that would otherwise be off-limits in Africa or the West, Tiffany and Nicole argue that because the intent isn’t the same as it would be if those same words were said in New York, London or Johannesburg, the impact is also different.

Nicole and Tiffany join Eric & Cobus — in the podcast above — to talk about what it’s like to be a black in China.

Inside The School Where Children With HIV Find Refuge From Discrimination In China

Kun Kun, a young boy living with HIV, was banished from his village in China last year by residents who described him as a “ticking time bomb.” The case drew international attention to the severe discrimination faced by children with HIV in China.

Kun Kun has since found a new home, at the Green Harbor Red-Ribbon School in Linfen, China. The boarding school is a rare refuge for HIV-positive children in China, where infection rates are relatively low, but social stigma is high.

The school is the subject of an ambitious documentary project called “Children of the Harbor,” which is following the students’ passage through the boarding school until the first class graduates in 2017.

The project was conceived by Bryan Anker, a 27-year-old medical student originally from Los Angeles, who lived at the Green Harbor school in 2012 during an internship at the affiliated hospital.  

“It broke my heart to learn that these children had been shunned by society all of their lives,” Anker told The WorldPost by email. ”The level of awareness these children possess is mind-boggling. They fully comprehend their current situation and are well aware of how society perceives them.”

Anker and his small team of filmmakers, including Myanmar-based photographer, journalist and cinematographer Ann Wang, started to document the students’ lives in December and plan to follow their stories through graduation. “We want to film up to this point and see what road the students take after graduation. Will they go to university? Will they return home? Will they find a job?” Anker said.

“These children are smart and resilient, and some of them have thought up intricate plans for escaping the HIV stigma in China,” he told The WorldPost. 

The school was set up in 2006, and is home to around 30 children and teenagers with HIV, ranging in age from 6 years old to 19.  The students have “very complicated feelings … about themselves, about the school and about the disease they’ve been carrying since birth,” Wang told The WorldPost by email.

Many of them are the children of patients being treated for HIV/AIDS at the affiliated Linfen Infectious Disease Hospital; others have been orphaned by AIDS or thrown out of their schools and local communities due to stigma.

This is a pervasive problem for children with HIV in China. “If their HIV status has been disclosed, it’s very common that parents of other children complain to the school and force the school to separate their children from HIV positive children,” Xu Wenqing, an HIV/AIDS specialist at UNICEF China, told The WorldPost by email. 

Nearly 10,000 children in China live with HIV/AIDS, among some 500,000 reported cases in the country. (Experts estimate the total number of cases, including those undiagnosed, may be around 800,000.) This is relatively low compared to countries like the U.S., which has a population a quarter of the size of China’s, and an estimated 1.2 million HIV/AIDS cases among people 13 or older. 

Yet discrimination is widespread, and affects old and young alike in China. Advocates say people known to be HIV-positive are often barred from attending collge or refused public and private-sector jobs. The main problem is a lack of information about HIV/AIDS, including how it is transmitted and treated. Experts point to China’s poor sexual health education and the ongoing repetition of myths about HIV by public officials. 

China’s leaders have made a high-profile effort to combat this prejudice in recent years, as well as stepping up free treatment for AIDS patients and measures to prevent mothers from passing on HIV to their newborn children. In 2006, a new law banned discrimination against people living with HIV, although it has been difficult to enforce. On World AIDS Day last year, China’s first lady Peng Liyuan released a music video with the students of Green Harbor-Red Ribbon School, urging an end to the stigma they face.

Anker hopes that telling the stories of the children at Green Harbor can convince more people to leave their prejudices behind.

“I believe the children’s stories are so poignant, and their personalities so radiant, that our viewers won’t have any choice but to empathize with their situation,” he said. 

To learn more about the media project and support the documentary, go to the Children of the Harbor website.

Tmall Promotion Underscores Heightened Competition in China For U.S. Brands

DEALS, DEALS, DEALS: Tmall.com created an online frenzy with its latest blowout featuring more than 1,000 fashion brands.
The apparel promotion, held twice a year — one for spring and another for fall — this time around boasts a number of brands exclusive to Tmall.com, including Timberland, Decathlon and Zara.
The retailer sweetened the deal to customers with a same-day shipping option, aided by participating stores that will send items purchased online to a customer’s home.
It’s part of a larger strategy to bridge the online and off-line worlds, said a spokeswoman with Tmall.com parent Alibaba Group.
“That’s a very important strategy for Alibaba Group,” the spokeswoman said. “You have a lot of shoppers sometimes when they order online, they want to go in stores and get a sense of the look and feel of something.”
So customers shopping in-store, can make a purchase online with the scan of a QR code or schedule to have product seen in-store delivered to their homes. The option is available in more than 10 cities.
It’s another point of distinction for the online retailer as competition remains fierce to bring U.S. brands to the Chinese consumer.
The sale — running through Wednesday — comes on the heels of Alibaba’s announcement this

The Met’s Costume Institute Breaks Attendance Record With ‘China: Through the Looking Glass’

FOR THE RECORD: The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute has turned up its own summer blockbuster. Over the weekend, “China: Through the Looking Glass” shattered the record-breaking attendance figures for the 2011 exhibition “Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty.” As of Sunday afternoon, the Andrew Bolton-curated China show had attracted 671,234 visitors, making it The Costume Institute’s most attended exhibition ever. With three weeks to go until its Labor Day closing, the China exhibition may still gain ground on the Met’s other Top 10 visited exhibitions. The McQueen one ranked eighth with 661,509 visitors.
Given “China: Through the Looking Glass’” cross-cultural appeal – designers from around the globe are represented – it is not surprising that museum-goers speaking a variety of languages can be heard in the show’s 16 different galleries. Creative input from artistic director Wong Kar Wai is artistic director and production designer Nathan Crowley no doubt helped drum up interest. The Met is also favorite stop for many of the city’s estimated 55 million annual visitors. For fiscal year 2015 that ended June 30, The Met welcomed 6.3 people, according to a museum spokeswoman. And unlike the McQueen show, which often left many biding their time in line in

Voltage Valet Electrical Adaptor for use in Australia, New Zealand, and China – “C” Plug


PackingLight.com’s job is to outfit the traveler with all of the travel essentials one needs to venture anywhere. Our selection of Voltage Valet adaptors allow you to connect your appliance into the outlets of the world.Plug type “C” in for use in Australia, New Zealand, and China and where the outlet has a slanted configuration. This means that even though you could experience a different type of outlet in China for example, that you will commonly encounter the “C” plug (Voltage Valet’s adaptor specification) in these countries. If you are using a grounded three pin appliance you need to purchase a three pin GUC grounded plug. Most common electrical appliances people travel with however, have two standard American-style pins and the “C” two pin plug is appropriate. Please check your electronics before you leave and call us if you need our assistance. We welcome your calls.We urge our visitors to click to our Foreign Electrical page to get more in-depth information on when you need adaptors and converters for travel. Most often we find our customers do not need converters to bring down the 240 voltage found in most countries overseas to our voltage of 110. The reason is they possess appliances that are already dual voltage with the capability to use overseas without using converters. That is correct, people with most battery chargers and small travel appliances can check their appliance and discover their appliance has a rating specification that reads “100/240V”–indicating that the appliance is dual voltage and can work on the high 240 voltage abroad. So please check you chargers for MP3 players, digital cameras, razors, camcorders, cell phones, etc. and look for yourself. In addition, check your compact, folding hair dryers, travel curling irons and straighteners, travel steamers, irons, and coffee makers. If they’re built specifically for travel and/or purchased from PackingLight.com, we can save you the cost of buying a converter when you probably don’t need it!NOTE: Some countries use more than one type of outlet and you should carry the appropriate adaptor for each outlet listed. Remember, adaptor plugs DO NOT convert electricity – they simply modify foreign outlets.If you have ANY questions please CALL US on our toll free number, 1-800-349-0525.To determine the adaptor plug you need, see our link to Voltage Valet’s country list in the Electricity Guide section. http://www.voltagevalet.com/elec_guide.html

Chinese Medicine in Contemporary China

Chinese Medicine in Contemporary China


As a traditional healing art that has established a contemporary global presence, Chinese medicine defies categories and raises many interesting questions. If Chinese medicine is “traditional,” why has it not disappeared with the rest of traditional Chinese society? If, as some claim, it is a science, what does that imply about what we call science? What is the secret of Chinese medicine’s remarkable adaptability that has allowed it to prosper for more than 2,000 years? In Chinese Medicine in Contemporary China Volker Scheid presents an ethnography of Chinese medicine that seeks to answer these questions, but his ethnography is informed by some atypical approaches. Scheid, a medical anthropologist and practitioner of Chinese medicine in practice since 1983, has produced an ethnography that accepts plurality as an intrinsic and nonreducible aspect of medical practice. It has been widely noted that a patient visiting ten different practitioners of Chinese medicine may receive ten different prescriptions for the same complaint, yet many of these various treatments may be effective. In attempting to illuminate the plurality in Chinese medical practice, Scheid redefines-and in some cases abandons-traditional anthropological concepts such as tradition, culture, and practice in favor of approaches from disciplines such as science and technology studies, social psychology, and Chinese philosophy. As a result, his book sheds light not only on Chinese medicine but also on the Western academic traditions used to examine it and presents us with new perspectives from which to deliberate the future of Chinese medicine in a global context. Chinese Medicine in Contemporary China is the product of two decades of research including numerous interviews and case studies. It will appeal to a western academic audience as well as practitioners of Chinese medicine and other interested medical professionals, including those from western biomedicine.

China is Near

China is Near


This is a superbly illustrated exploration of the latest work of acclaimed artist Joyce Kozloff. Joyce Kozloff has never been to China, but she has fantasized about travelling the Silk Route for four decades. During that time, China has moved, culturally, nearer to the West. For this project, Kozloff explored the China accessible to her, visiting the Chinatowns of New York and California – all destinations on the 21st-century Silk Route! Her photographs convey the sensory overload of these locations, their surfeit of gaudy trinkets and glittering electronics – artefacts that have entered Western culture, mingled with our indigenous kitsch, and become dislocated from their origins. Revelling in the ways this visual clutter rhymed with her layered, dense aesthetic, Kozloff juxtaposed her photographs with collages incorporating drawings of old maps, Google searches and traditional Chinese cutouts. The resulting series, ‘China is Near’, presents a rich and unconventional chronicle of China.

The China Diary of George H.W. Bush

The China Diary of George H.W. Bush


Available in print for the first time, this day-by-day diary of George H.W. Bush’s life in China opens a fascinating window into one of the most formative periods of his career. As head of the United States Liaison Office in Beijing from 1974 to 1975, Bush witnessed high-level policy deliberations and daily social interactions between the two Cold War superpowers. The China Diary of George H.W. Bush offers an intimate look at this fundamental period of international history, marks a monumental contribution to our understanding of U.S-China relations, and sheds light on the ideals of a global president in the making. In compelling words, Bush reveals a thoughtful and pragmatic realism that would guide him for decades to come. He considers the crisis of Vietnam, the difficulties of détente, and tensions in the Middle East, while lamenting the global decline in American power. He formulates views on the importance of international alliances and personal diplomacy, as he struggles to form meaningful relationships with China’s top leaders. With a critical eye for detail, he depicts key political figures, including Gerald Ford, Donald Rumsfeld, Deng Xiaoping, and the ever-difficult Henry Kissinger. Throughout, Bush offers impressions of China and its people, describing his explorations of Beijing by bicycle, and his experiences with Chinese food, language lessons, and Ping-Pong. Complete with a preface by George H.W. Bush, and an introduction and essay by Jeffrey Engel that place Bush’s China experience in the broad context of his public career, The China Diary of George H.W. Bush offers an unmediated perspective on American diplomatic history, and explores a crucial period’s impact on a future commander in chief.

Sex Science and Morality in China


After decades of near silence on the matter, sex is being talked about in China. But what is being said? Who is allowed to speak? And whose purposes are being served? This ground-breaking book takes a critical look at how sex in China is thought and talked about. Drawing on the work of the country’s foremost sex experts, and years of research in the field, it gives an overview of the sexual landscape in China today. Including new material on transsexuals, fetishism, sex aids and pornography, the book shows that the dominant ways of thinking about sex are neither innocent nor inconsequential, and that amid catalogues of prescriptions linking self-management to the collective good, people are making decisions about how to live their sexual lives. The most lively and accessible critique of sexual discourse, this book will be essential reading for scholars in Chinese studies, cultural studies and sexuality and gender studies.

Jon Stewart Shows Why China Really Needs That Climate Change Deal

Beijing may have been just about the best possible place to unveil a major deal on emissions because as Jon Stewart pointed out on Tuesday night’s “Daily Show,” the city really needs it.

The air quality is so bad that Beijing had to shut down factories and schools to help reduce smog ahead of the APEC summit. And these efforts worked, leading residents to dub the rare clear skies “APEC blue.”

“Well at least residents didn’t flee in fear of the enormous, ‘SKY FIREBALL!'” Stewart joked, referring to the rare glimpse of sunlight.

That wasn’t the only APEC oddity. From “Hunger Games” cosplay to world leaders acting more like “Mean Girls,” Stewart took a look at the summit’s strangest moments.

It started when Gillibrand, Britton and a few friends went to a Chinese beach, the senator told host Caroline Modarressy-Tehrani during a chat about her new book Off The Sidelines. The women enjoyed crabs and “great seafood,” which then backfired in a big way:

We got home, we were all so sick. We were just throwing up nonstop, terrible food poisoning. My most vibrant memory is being taken to the hospital on the back of a bike, like, as you’re heaving. Connie was sick, I was sick, and they gave us this vial of black liquid. It was toad venom, and they said, ‘Drink this.’ I’m like, ‘Oh my God, am I gonna die?’ So we all just looked at each other and drank it and decide, ‘OK, maybe we get better?’

They did get better, and the toad venom episode became just one of the great stories from that summer, which found the now-powerful women camping out on flat cement beds with straw mattresses.

Britton opened up about her friendship with Gillibrand during her own visit to HuffPost Live earlier this month. When the senator saw Britton’s comments, she responded by spotlighting the fine example Britton’s “Friday Night Lights” character Tami Taylor became for women.

“She said, ‘I will only do [the series] if you let me help write this character, and she has to be strong and she has to use her voice and she has to have real opinions,'” Gillibrand said of Britton’s decision to take the role. “Every script she’d get, she’d push back on it, push back on it and make this character into this amazing mom who really made a difference in her community.”

Chinese Medicine in Contemporary China: Plurality and Synthesis

Chinese Medicine in Contemporary China: Plurality and Synthesis


As a traditional healing art that has established a contemporary global presence, Chinese medicine defies categories and raises many interesting questions. If Chinese medicine is “traditional,” why has it not disappeared with the rest of traditional Chinese society? If, as some claim, it is a science, what does that imply about what we call science? What is the secret of Chinese medicine’s remarkable adaptability that has allowed it to prosper for more than 2,000 years? In” Chinese Medicine in Contemporary China” Volker Scheid presents an ethnography of Chinese medicine that seeks to answer these questions, but his ethnography is informed by some atypical approaches. Scheid, a medical anthropologist and practitioner of Chinese medicine in practice since 1983, has produced an ethnography that accepts plurality as an intrinsic and nonreducible aspect of medical practice. It has been widely noted that a patient visiting ten different practitioners of Chinese medicine may receive ten different prescriptions for the same complaint, yet many of these various treatments may be effective. In attempting to illuminate the plurality in Chinese medical practice, Scheid redefines-and in some cases abandons-traditional anthropological concepts such as tradition, culture, and practice in favor of approaches from disciplines such as science and technology studies, social psychology, and Chinese philosophy. As a result, his book sheds light not only on Chinese medicine but also on the Western academic traditions used to examine it and presents us with new perspectives from which to deliberate the future of Chinese medicine in a global context. “Chinese Medicine in Contemporary China” is the product of two decades of research including numerous interviews and case studies. It will appeal to a western academic audience as well as practitioners of Chinese medicine and other interested medical professionals, including those from western biomedicine.
