China: Racism in education

The American Professor at OneManBandwith writes from the Southern Chinese city of Guangzhou on what he and many in China see as entrenched racism in educational institutions who seek to hire non-Chinese English teachers:

“These Chinese schools that reject non-whites are cheating their students of international influences [and] will negatively impact China's growth and give critics something very tangible to chide. Yes, America, Australia and others are rife with racism, but at least have laws to create some interference for the narrow-minded and ill-willed destructionists who practice it.”
