Good overview but I would not include China Daily (i.e. "China Happy") and People's Daily. They are still more or less government mouthpieces and give you a wrong view about China. Sout China Morning Post at is much better.

Best, Markus

100yrold: I have checked the links in the two posts prior to yours but I couldn't find anything about nipples (a topic that is not totally outside my realm of interest!*!). As there are no words in the post which seem to indicate an inappropriate posting, you would need to contact the moderators and request their action (either direct message or the 'Talk to Us' forum.

As I write their is a spam post following yours.... I fully expect that the moderators willpick up on this shortly

As an aside, I could not enter the wertcorp link through the front door - maybe it is an 'unapproved site'. By the backdoor, I found it is an interesting extract from a John Steinbook book (anyone who hasn't read Steinbeck is really missing good writing and an insight into the life in the USA in the inter war years. Much of it is about the hardships of ordinary people in the depression years). The extract is about an ethnic Chinese born in the US who continues to behave and speak as if he was a new immigrant because people could not see past his skin and could not accept such a person as educated and speaking American. (but no niples!)

here is another one but i prefer this site with fine web design and high quality post.

Paul, Chinses like Japanese, Jewish as an ethnic group in overseas is hard to be assimilated compared to other minorities like African, Hindu, in North America. Perhaps latters have deep rooted white anglo-saxon cololnial curtures.

here is another book named (("His Dominion" And the "Yellow Peril": Protestant Missions to Chinese ))

((A history of Chinese immigrants encounter with Canadian Protestant missionaries, ""His Dominion" and the "Yellow Peril": Protestant Missions to Chinese Immigrants in Canada, 1859-1967," analyzes the evangelizing activities...))
