  1. So sick and tired of your westerner's hypocrisy! On one hand you guys are so fucking arrogantly and ignorance to criticize China. Most of your ignorance about China are pretty much attributed from the brain washed by your western government and your media, but on one the hand you are so fucking greedy of making billion of billion dollars from the Chinese consumers. Shame on you!
