As an Asian-American, I can tell you that getting out of the “bubble” is a mixed bag. You will have your few friends, and maybe find places where you can be safe, but even in ostensibly progressive places, it is hard, and not merely a language thing. It’s hard for me to envision a longer-term future for Asians in the West, which is why I am hopeful when I see China building roads to Pakistan, investing in Africa, etc.
I completely agree with the fifth column thing. I always knew that if there isn’t some hating on brown people or black people then we were next, and, it was only a matter of time. Which is why it always annoyed me when overseas Chinese would join in on the model minority thing and espouse prejudice towards South Asians or African-Americans.

My Chinese wife and I live part time about 250 miles west of Shanghai so it’s not an upscale city but a rather common or average rural city of 1 million people. Often I am 1 of 3–4 foreigners in the whole city, the others being English teachers from around the world.
I must say your views are interesting, entertaining and in most cases, sensitive in expression and correct..

My grain of salt…
In Mandarin, the words “he”, “she” and “it” are all pronounced as “TAH”. It takes practice for a native Mandarin speaker to fluently apply gender specific pronouns. For your information, there are two additional third person/party pronouns in Chinese, one for the animated “it” when one refers to mammals, and one reserved for God. These two are also pronounced as “TAH”.
We all act differently among different crowds/social groups be it young or old, Chinese or non-Chinese. The differences may be due to age, political leaning, religion, custom, common interests, social backgrounds, family backgrounds, education and other factors.
That coincides with my view as well.
Breaking down a population of 1.4 billion into north vs. south is taking generalization to its extreme. This may reflect China centuries past when most of the population remains rooted to their birthplace hence fixed views and behavior are handed down from generation to generation. In today’s highly mobile society complimented by technologically enhanced communication means renders this view rather dated.
Not sure whether this is true or not. Mandarin is the official national language where Cantonese is a local dialect confined to the southern most province of China. Most of today’s Canton (Guangdong) residents should, I believe, be able to converse in Mandari.
Loudness really depends on the individuals or the groups you are with.
Most of the Chinese family do treat education as its top priority when it comes to childrearing. This is the due to, in my opinion, the acceptance and practice of Confucianism.
It might be because Shanghai had been the largest and most affluent city of China for years, like New York city, people from other parts of China might view the Shanghai locals differently as if being a resident there represents a higher status. Like the rest of the world, one can find snobs almost anywhere.
Chinese simply do not remove armpit hair. It was not part of the Chinese tradition nor custom. The only Chinese, as per my limited knowledge, that shaves their armpits are today’s younger female population as per western influence. Even famous female Chinese actresses of yesteryears can sometimes be seen with underarm hairs exposed with no eyebrows raised.
I doubt that is true. To maintain a steady body temperature at 37 Celsius in warm climates, or when exercising, one must sweat. I am not sure about body odor either, post game/workout locker rooms can be pungent. Chinese or otherwise.
Can’t argue with that one. My wife and I were introduced by a relative.
If the parents are relatively well off then yes, otherwise, you are on your own.
It is hard to maintain a home and raise a family on one salary alone nowadays.
Smartphones all the way.
Agreed. Use one common language so one would not exclude others, intentionally or unintentionally.
Hard work is ingrained and expected. Although one will still find slackers hanging about and contributing little.
Substituting booze by tea is generally acceptable. Personally, I would not wish to join a “inner circle” if I am forced to consume drink or food that I do not desire.
True, my family reunx is like a micro version of United Nations.
