    Air China slammed for racist in-flight magazine

    A top Chinese airline has sparked a race row after its in-flight magazine warned travelers to London to dodge the city’s “ethnic minority” areas.
    The shocking article in the latest edition of Wings of China — distributed on Air China — has been branded “racist,” “outrageous” and “insulting.”
    “London is generally a safe place to travel, however precautions are needed when entering areas mainly populated by Indians, Pakistanis and black people,” it reads.
    “We advise tourists not to go out alone at night, and females always to be accompanied by another person when travelling.”
    The phrase is then repeated in both Mandarin and English in the magazine’s in-depth feature on the multi-cultural capital.
    The article was spotted by Chinese journalist Haze Fan on a flight in China.
    It enraged her so much, she tweeted a picture of it to London Mayor Sadiq Khan, asking him what he thought:

    She wrote how her Londoner fiancée “felt it rather insulting.”
    Now politicians are demanding an apology and that the phrase be removed from the publication.
    China Air, which is Asia’s third-biggest airline and flies twice daily between London and Beijing, has yet to comment.
    But Dr. Rosena Allin-Khan, Labor MP for Tooting, which has one of the largest Indian and Pakistani populations in London, told the Standard, “My initial thoughts were that the comments were outrageous. I think that it is offensive to Londoners and I would like to see it removed. I would also like to ask the airline why they thought these precautions needed to be taken. Why they feel they needed to warn people of something that is not reflective of London at all? I think it is offensive to all Londoners, not just the ethnic minorities mentioned.”
    Lambeth and Southwark London assembly member Florence Eshalomi added, “You couldn’t make up these outdated and near-on racist views.”
    She said, “I keep thinking, is this 2016? We want people who embrace our diversity and different culture — that is the make-up of London. If airlines have a problem with that, then we don’t want them in London.”

    A spokesman for civil rights campaign group Hope Not Hate spokesman said, “It beggars belief to understand how they could have been written in the first place. They should be removed immediately. Londoners deserve an apology.”
    ‘I keep thinking, is this 2016?…If airlines have a problem with that then we don’t want them in London.’
    - Florence Eshalomi, Lambeth and Southwark London assembly member
    Britain is an increasingly popular destination for Chinese tourists. According to government agency VisitBritain, more than 270,000 Chinese visited Britain in 2015, up 46 percent from the previous year.
    This was after the number of Chinese tourists doubled in the five years to 2014.
    Chinese visitors spent 586 million pounds ($786 million) in total in Britain in 2015, up 18 percent over 2014.
    And in January, Britain launched a new, two-year, multiple-entry visa in a bid to woo even more Chinese visitors to its shores, following changes made in 2015 that allowed tourists and business travelers to apply for both British and European visas in a single process.
    Chinese companies have been criticized previously for their depictions of various races.
    In May, a Chinese detergent company apologized for an advertisement that showed an Asian woman shoving a dirt-smeared black man into a washing machine, only for him to emerge as a clean Asian man.
    The ad, which ran on Chinese social media platforms, was quickly dubbed “the most racist commercial ever.”

    I don't know about that. We keep our chinks in the restaurants. I never see them behind the wheel. They can't be any worse than new Yorkers, jersey, darkies, or jew drivers.

    They're probably right. If you want to be safe, avoid high crime areas. You just can't say it.

    The whole world is racist. Everyone is pretty comfortable with their own racism, except us.

    Is there a Chinese word for euphemism? Too blunt and potentially honest is the offensive thing here.

    I hate to admit it, but they are the only ones speaking the truth on this sort of matter.

    So China cuts out the PC bullshit to try and protect its citizen tourists? Good on them.
