This kind of thing makes me sick. thumbsdown.gif

And I'm not saying Korea is better. This fetishization of whites in Asia has to stop.

QUOTE
For a day, a weekend, a week, up to even a month or two, Chinese companies are willing to pay high prices for fair-faced foreigners to join them as fake employees or business partners.

Some call it "White Guy Window Dressing." To others, it's known as the "White Guy in a Tie" events, "The Token White Guy Gig," or, simply, a "Face Job."

And it is, essentially, all about the age-old Chinese concept of face. To have a few foreigners hanging around means a company has prestige, money and the increasingly crucial connections -- real or not -- to businesses abroad.

i dont think its that big of an issue. these clowns just have no clue what face really is. they have some twisted fu-ked up version of face to pull this crap off. anyone with even a little sense of self respect knows this is dishonest and dumb as fuk. how can you get face from that? you cant. and thats why everyone who reads this thinks they are pathetic.

btw, i wish they named some of the companies doing this.

this is only a temporary trend. white people may have the image of wealth and prestige for NOW, but there's no telling if they will maintain this status for long

In the future, there won't be any more whites. They would get out-bred by Latinos, Africans, Semitics, and Indians. Museums and old movies/TV shows would be the only ways for future generations to see white people.

lmao white people dont have that image are you kidding? their image is unemployment and bad loans right now. im not even trying to diss or nothing. half the commercial tenants i had from 2005 are out of business now. and Canada didnt even get hit like the US did by the recession.

mainland China is just a bit slow on this fact of reality. although with this US debt thing going on, i really wonder how long their trumped up image is going to last.

My impression of White's are that they are obese warmongers who enslave, and colonize other countries then try to use "human rights" argument and how much "freedom" they have.

Didn't even know these companies did this sort of thing. You learn something new everyday, I guess.

Outbreeding doesn't mean solution though. We are going to have major overpopulation problems as it will double by next 30 years or so.

This is utterly disgusting. How abasing, how groveling, to beg for the services of a white guy whose job is to look, well, non-Chinese.
