Olympics: China Bans Blacks and Mongolians From Bars; Deports Christians

 Introduction to Chinese Human Rights 101. In an effort to ‘clean up’ Beijing and for  “reasons of safety”, bars are forbidden to serve blacks and Mongolians during the Olympics and the Chinese government have deported Christians because they think they will cause trouble!

Bar owners around the Worker’s Stadium in downtown Beijing say that public security officials are telling them not to let in blacks and Mongolians or allow dancing during the Olympic Games next month — many of them have even had to sign a pledge reports the South China Morning Post, a Hong Kong newspaper.

Street musicians are being banned, and so is the purchasing of medicines containing “stimulants” without a prescription. Public places must close by 2 a.m., and bar owners are being asked to remind their clients that they must always have an identification document with them.

Last September, police detained dozens of blacks in the Sanlitun bar district and according to witnesses, beat some with rubber truncheons. The son of Grenada’s Ambassador to China reportedly suffered a concussion from being clubbed on the head by police.

Police with dogs raided an African-owned bar this week and required blacks to provide urine samples to test for illegal drugs.

“When the police come, you have to run,” a woman from Liberia said. “I’ve lived in Holland and the United States and it was never like this. There is no ‘human rights’ here. It’s racist and it makes me feel very bad.”

Africans and Mongolians are perceived as criminals by Beijing authorities and have been included with other ethnic groups, political activists, outspoken entertainers and Christians as potential sources of trouble during the games.

It is also rumored that bars within two miles of the Olympic buildings will be able operate, for the duration of the Olympics.

In some areas, tables are not permitted outside, because “the presence of too many foreigners gathered outside could create problems”.

There is also an attempt to shut down outdoor musical concerts, to prevent disorder. Jazz musician David Mitchell says that it is increasingly difficult for his band to find places to play in Beijing “Everything is aimed at creating stability, but they don’t understand that is precisely the unfounded prejudice that foreigners have of Chinese society – that it is a highly controlled and not a very cultural place. It seems completely self-defeating”.

To guarantee a “clean” Olympics, a doctor’s prescription is now required for 1,993 commonly used medicines or the package must show a warning that the medication contains substances believed to be stimulating and not permitted for the athletes.

Meanwhile, as of July 20 a new regulation went into effect prohibiting millions of vehicles from driving on city streets even though the three new subway stations are not yet working – Zhou Zhengyu, deputy director of the Beijing Municipal Committee of Communications, is unable to say when the subways will open.

Evidence of the secret pledges with police can be observed by the new practice of some bar owners who have recently begun charging black patrons twice the admission fee charged other customers.

While police denied any such activity, and most bars denied knowing about the prohibition, African residents in the city say that harassment by the authorities and discrimination at the bars has increased.

It has also been reported that China has started a crackdown on Christians and Christianity in advance of the 2008 Games including the expulsion of more than 100 foreign Christians in China in a 90-day period — the biggest assault on the presence of Christianity in China since 1954.

I’m so excited; I can’t wait to get to Beijing.  I won’t have to deal with blacks or Mongolians in bars!  When Mongolians drink Tsingtao (Chinese dark beer) and when blacks drink Crown Royal they get so crazy!  🙄

Can someone p-l-e-a-s-e tell me WHY the Olympics are being held in China???

  1. Those pesky Mongols must get rowdy when intoxicated.

    They forgot American Indians for the bar ban.
    But the Chinese might mistake an American Indian with a Mongol, so it may even out.

    It logically follows the Christians could be trouble.

    I am a Christian, and have often been accused of being troublesome, primarily by people committing some crime in a position of public trust who would rather it be overlooked.

    I am surprised at the approach:

    getting the Christians drunk and getting the Mongols and Blacks (American Indians too) filled with the Holy Spirit would be different way to go.

  2. Because the Chinese have a massive economy, a huge country, and the thought is that by giving the the Olympics it will drag them — kicking and screaming — toward real human rights? I don’t know, beyond that.

  3. Is this for real? Paulette, are you really going to China for the Olympics? This is so wrong. Wonder how the Chinese Government will handle Barack Obama when he becomes President of the United States.

  6. Give me a break!

    China deported Christians? Do you realize there are tens of millions of Chinese citizens that are Christians?

    What is wrong about checking the places of entertainment?

    So an African-owned bar was checked,and that means China bans blacks? What about tens of thousands of bars owned by Chinese to be raided? Does that mean Chinese being banned by China to you?

    Ridiculous

  7. The same ignorant behavior became obvious to me on several trips to Japan from 2000 to 2003. The ill treatment and contempt for African people in the “far east” is nothing new. In reality it is just a hold over spell cast by Europeans who invaded and doinated these areas earlier in history. China took back their country from the Europeans, but many are still having trouble with risidual “brain washing”. You can remove the colony from the country, but you can’t as easily remove the colonization from the minds of the people.

    They don’t seem to have trouble joining in with Europe and America in plundering African natural resources. I guess they just can’t serve them beer 🙂

  8. ‘Nefer’ – the Chinese are taught to look down on blacks (and obviously Mongolians). They are taught that because of genetics – blacks are naturally inferior and are indubitably criminals. It’s one of the miserable doctrines they are taught from cradle to grave.

    Many who come to America, even though they own restaurants and other businesses in black communities and achieve the ‘American dream’ because of blacks have complete disrespect and disdain for the black people ‘they literally serve’.

    Of course there are many Chinese citizens who leave their homeland and immigrate to other countries and realize that what their government drilled into their heads was false, bogus and made-up. But most Chinese who are new to West stay far from blacks and by their actions and body language it’s easy to see that they are uncomfortable and edgy around blacks.

    The Chinese government treats their Chinese citizens in an unforgivably deplorable manner so I guess it’s easy to inform their citizens that there are people who are inferior to them as a way of building them up?

    Human rights does not exist in China on any level and it is distressing that America does business with the inhumane communist Chinese government.

  9. Unfortunately for the rank and file Chinese people, who are denied access to the pyramids and temples in their own country, biases must rule their lives. It is but one consequence of an isolationist life. If southeast Asians had any clue as to what their origins were, they would never tolerate the lies.

    As Sophia Stewart, the creator of the Matrix, had Neo to say:

    “I am going to tell the people what you don’t want them to know”. What they do at that point is up to them.

    Hotep!

  10. Oh yeah, like this is going to change any thing for real…we need to ban their crappy food from the US, well, at least they took the dog food off the menu for the Olympics, but then again, one just never knows what’s in that crap!

  11. Our country should be boycotting these racist commie bastards! Instead, we cater to them in the name of greed. If I were President, I would order all American companies to have all manufacturing back in the states within 6 months or give the owners and families a one – way ticket to live there and enjoy the freedoms that go with their slant – eyed buddies.
    I hope our black atheletes hand those gooks their collective commie asses!

  12. what a joke, some you guys actually believe it? Sure there might be discriminations everywhere, but China is much better treating its minorities. The US killed almost all the indians, where the 56 minority groups in China have co-existed more or less in peace for thousands of years in China. Give me a break! China supported African countries of decades and regard africans as true friends. This type of fake news does noting but to scare people. I am Chinese, I know better.

  13. snowball-

    Thank you for the information that China loves black people. That is news to me.

    I already knew about the Indians (I am part Cherokee).
    On a pragmatic level it is only fair to say the USA killed off the Indians to steal the land, so I suppose it is ok.

    Hey Snow- how about those three protest points that were part of the deal with the Olympic committee?
    How many people were disappeared for applying for a permit to protest?

    Does China dump disappeared protesters into trash dumps, brick them into walls, or bury them in a regular grave?

    I am always interested in China and how they do things.

  14. Well, I don’t know where to start with.
    1st off I am a proud Mongolian, not because of our heroic history, but because of our values and beliefs.
    We have freedom in Mongolia and everyone is not scared to express our feeling. When our countrymen win gold medals, we like to go out and celebrate.
    I guess
    I once in a while some, Chinese losers get in our way but learn their lessons not to mess with us by getting kicked in their faces. So what? Let Mongolians and Blacks enjoy our time, because we like to express our victory

  15. Munkherdene – I don’t believe that any people in inferior to any other people – God made us all and God loves us all.

    The Chinese governmnet tells a lot about their own complexes by their deeds.
