    Wow, have you ever thought about the interviewer might be from Australia? Guess no matther what Chinese do, they will always receive contempt. Even from other Asians.

    Obviously, self-hate can be brain-washed.

    Unfortunately the interview could not be played on my computer. Would love to hear how you sound when you speak though.
