Foreigners don’t have special privileges.

还有点良心 [网易福建省厦门市网友]:

That depends on what country. The status/position of a national is directly proportional to how strong and powerful the country they are from is.

Something that involves foreign nationals, the media isn’t able to suppress this one.

Was it a black devil?

When Americans go abroad, printed on the last page of their passport is: No matter where you are, the United States government is always behind you, whereas in Chinese passports it is printed: When you arrive abroad, you must not have conflicts with the local residents and must comply with the local laws, in short not to cause problems for China/the Chinese government.

msman123 [网易上海市长宁区网友]:

So polite putting it as “male foreigner”… Why not just be direct and say African black?

意大利烧饼 [网易黑龙江省牡丹江市网友]:

On the eve of a surge in abnormal slandering/defaming of foreigners, I only want to say…
A good way to divert attention from certain village cadres and various village contradictions/problems!

fresh293 [网易广东省东莞市网友]:

Guangzhou definitely has too many black people!

方肘子是云霄人的耻辱 [网易河北省保定市网友]:

Quickly drive out these black devils from China, we don’t welcome black devils here!! Black devils are hidden dangers upon society, rape, robbery, smuggling, AIDS…what use is allowing these black devils to stay in China?? Those who ding this comment will get rich, despise Fang Zhouzi!

Do foreign nationals not have a nationality? Is it that hard to be clear about it?

What are you afraid of? It’s not like they’re USA blacks.

网易天津市网友:

A foreigner can now be said to have enjoyed the real treatment our countrymen get.

网易广东省深圳市网友:

Guangzhou has too many black people now. Most of them are all illegal immigrants. Especially in the area around Sanyuanli. When night falls, they just wander around. All you can see is two rows of teeth. This needs to be dealt with.

If the deceased were an American, then there would drama.

Dying without a reason? Does anyone believe this?

魅影儿骑士 [网易辽宁省铁岭市手机网友]:

See! So-called “foreign nations” are always races with darker skin, but if it were white skin… everyone knows…

网易浙江省杭州市网友:

In our mainland, one has to learn how to consume drainage oil, learn how to eat fake chicken eggs, learn how to drink poisonous milk powder and eat all poisonous and fake food products, must put up with forced demolitions, put up with government officials’ empty words, put up with the various ways of dying in police stations and jails [such as “playing hide and seek“], and if you can’t learn to do all these things, then don’t come to the mainland…

东张西顾 [网易上海市手机网友]:

All illegal immigrants from Africa.

网易广西手机网友:

Bullshit!! What we want to know is how the black person died!! After everything was said, nothing was said!

The first person [referring to ZhanghongofAnointed] is definitely a black guy who knows how to speak Chinese. People who like to say others are sick/twisted actually are themselves the most sick/twisted!

Black devil, get the fuck out of China, even if this is discrimination, it’s at least in line with international standards!
