    Chinese Companies Hiring White Dudes To Do Nothing

    If you are a white guy and out of work, there is a Chinese company that needs you, as long as you are good at faking an air of importance:

    These are the ultimate money for nothing, low stress jobs. Seek your fortune in China, young men.

    I saw this earlier and find it interesting. Does this mean the Chinese don't trust their very own culture or have they just been reading about all the drywall they sent us? or lead laced children's toys, or contaminated food, or.........well you get the idea.....

    By doing this, they merely propagate the racism that created the perception problem in the first place.

    Then again, throw all your principles out the window in the name of capitalism.

    What is more interesting to me than the racisim aspect is the aspect of "Money For Nothing." Remember the Dire Straits song?

    Coming full circle. The old tradition of the rich white folk hiring the oriental labour - Hop Sing, the cook on Bonanza being a prime example, or the status of having the shirts done at the Chinese laundry.
