Stereotype Reactions

TIME Magazine ran a cover story 'China: Dawn of a New Dynasty' in their Jan 22, 2007 publication.

As expected, you got to read the stereotyped reactions in the 'Letters' session in the following up Feb 5, 2007 issue: there is the Michigan house wife who vowed stop buying made-in-China products protesting a disgusting lack of regard for the value of human life; there is the African named Tshilidzi Marwala who defended China's positive involvement in Africa's development, and there's the smartass medical student Kou Qin of Augusta, Georgia who concluded that 'China's leaders must be made to understand that democratic reforms are urgently needed'.
