Popsong Stirs up Hong Kong-Mainland Chinese Conflict

Categories: East Asia, China, Hong Kong (China), Ethnicity & Race, Music

A popular singer's latest album, “Not polite” has stirred up another round of Hong Kong-Mainland Chinese debate. The lyrics of one track, which states state: “not matter if you are ‘locusts’ (refers to mainland Chinese) or ‘mole crickets and ants’ (refers to Hong Kong people), should be polite to each others”, was over-interpreted as anti-mainland Chinese.
