There were a number of fun and frivolous things I wanted to write about today, but I am too incensed by the obscene outpouring of anti-foreigner bile from Yang Rui a few days ago. It is unacceptable that any public figure should be able to get away with making hateful and inflammatory statements like this without being thoroughly vilified for it. It is utterly ridiculous that a man who is the main 'official face' of the country on its "international" English-language TV channel should be allowed to keep that job after spouting such xenophobic nonsense.
So, get vilifying! I have just launched A CAMPAIGN over on Froogville. Check out that post for more about Yang Rui, and details of how you can complain to his employer, China Central Television.
