A Racy Chinese New Year (CNY)

A Racy Chinese New Year (CNY)

*Please click the YouTube link to preview clips of the CNY Celebration.

As an expat living and teaching in Shanghai, I came into this new cultural experience with an open mind. As the Chinese New Year approached, the city literally lit up, as the local restaurants, shops, schools and tourist attractions were bedazzled with traditional Chinese New Year decor. Even as an “outsider” I found myself excited to celebrate the Chinese New Year. I knew at bare minimum I could expect to see what I like to call the “F’s” of celebration: family, fireworks, food, and fun; which were all evident as I toured about the city. Magic filled the air as the Chinese locals and Expats alike approached one another quoting sayings like “Xin Nian hao” (happy new year), and other verbal exchanges wishing good fortune in the new year. On New Years Day some Chinese families watch different television programs that feature speeches, comedic sketches/ routines, performances and general celebrations. This year’s CNY celebration was one to remember, to say the least!

On a very popular Chinese Network, a Chinese woman was featured wearing African style garments, with her face covered in dark brown make-up, while wearing a skirt that made her buttocks appear to be larger. The “so called” purpose of this comedic sketch was to highlight and celebrate Chinese-African ties.

The execution of this performance was in poor fashion. It was distasteful and extremely offensive, and it made me cringe as I watched in shock. Immediately I took offense to the actress’ exaggerated physical presentation and dark make-up, but what puzzled me even more was the African and/or African-American performers that were also featured in the presentation. I was confused as to why they would take part in something that so closely reflects blackface-a form of theatrical make-up used predominantly by non-black performers to represent a black person. The practice contributed to the spread of racial stereotypes such as the happy-go-lucky darky on the plantation, or the dandified coon (wikipedia). During the 19th century, blackface was performed, adding an element of racial comedy to plays that is culturally insensitive and down right ignorant! Really? It’s 2018, and this made it to television. I am genuinely confused, why didn’t anyone put a stop to this?
I wonder what the make-up artist was thinking as she applied her foundation. I wonder what the women whom shared a dressing room with her were thinking as they watched her get dressed into her exaggerated buttocks costume. I wonder if they felt celebrated or voiceless in this matter, or maybe they didn’t take offense to this at all? As I stated earlier, I came into this experience with an open mind, but this will take some time for me to cope with.

I do understand that many Chinese people don’t have much experience with African-Americans, since the African-American community here is very small, but just because something is small doesn’t deem it to be inadequate. 5 minutes of research on Bing, yahoo, google etc would have communicated to the reader that “blackface” is offensive. This is the same country that refused to allow entry to Super Model Gigi Hadid because of an Instagram video that shows her “imitating a Buddha by squinting her eyes”.

Its interesting that during this celebrations, the Chinese actors didn’t attempt to put on a costume and adjust/ exaggerate their features to represent any other country or continent. Africa is not the only place that China has ties to, and although I do appreciate the attempts of a celebration, I do believe that this is inexcusable. Its just ironic to me that this was the only demonstration where physical features were altered, and mocked in an attempt to celebrate. The people working on this television network are educated individuals with internet access, and resources that could have guided them in this matter. This could have all been avoided by simply featuring an African-American actress to play this role.

    However, consider this, what if you composed a catchier post
    title? I am not suggesting your information isn’t solid,
    however what if you added a title to possibly get people’s attention? I
    mean A Racy Chinese New Year (CNY) – Nala Gold is kinda vanilla.
    You could look at Yahoo’s front page and note how
    they write article headlines to grab people to open the links.

My website has a lot of completely unique content I’ve either authored myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my authorization.

  101. I was curious if you ever thought of changing the layout of your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 images. Maybe you could space it out better?

  102. I simply want to say I am just very new to blogging and site-building and truly enjoyed this web blog. Very likely I’m want to bookmark your website . You absolutely have tremendous well written articles. Thanks a bunch for sharing your blog site.

  103. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point. You clearly know what youre talking about, why waste your intelligence on just posting videos to your blog when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?

  104. Aw, this was an extremely good post. Finding the time and actual effort to create a good article… but what
    can I say… I procrastinate a lot and never seem to get nearly anything done.

  106. Hey there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing a few months of hard work due to no back up. Do you have any methods to protect against hackers?

  107. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering what all is needed to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very web savvy so I’m not 100% certain. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

  146. The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

  148. Sorry for the huge review, but I’m really loving the new Zune, and hope this, as well as the excellent reviews some other people have written, will help you decide if it’s the right choice for you.

  149. It¡¦s really a nice and useful piece of information. I am glad that you shared this helpful info with us. Please keep us up to date like this. Thank you for sharing.

  150. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  151. The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

  152. Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

  153. Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

  154. Someone essentially assist to make significantly posts I might state.
    This is the first time I frequented your website page and thus far?
    I amazed with the research you made to make this particular submit incredible.

    Excellent activity!

    He used to be totally right. This put up
    actually made my day. You can not believe simply how so much time I had spent for
    this info! Thank you!

  156. Abnormal this put up is totaly unrelated to what I was searching google for, but it surely used to be listed at the first page. I suppose your doing one thing proper if Google likes you adequate to place you at the first page of a non similar search.

  157. Great work! This is the kind of info that should be shared around the web. Shame on the search engines for not positioning this publish higher! Come on over and visit my website . Thank you =)

  175. I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod.
