    There's one thing i've always wondered. Why, on Crimewatch, do you rarely/never see any appeals to find Ding Dong or Wang Shung? Almost with exception the appeals are for white, black or middle eastern people.

    It appears to me that Chinese people have been able to mingle into society better than black or Pakistani/Indian people. Is it something in there upbringing? Are Chinese people brought up with better morals than the rest of us?

    Also, how many Chinese chavs do you see? You never see Chinese thugs hanging around on street corners looking for trouble do you? I've met and lived with quite a few Chinese people at Uni and without exception they've all been great people.

    It'd be interesting to hear from any Chinese posters. Are you brought up with better morals than the rest of us?

    Either that or there's statistically far less of them than the rest of the peoples you mention.

    True, and I agree with the OP, but you only have to watch Nuns On The Run to see that there are Triads who will chop off your arms at the slightest provocation.

    I'm sure there are Chinese here involved in organised crime (eg Triads), just not as many as the other groups you mention.

    well you do get quite a few rude-boys that are chinese(but not ones who starts lairing people off or start a fight for no reason). ive been bought up by parents fairly strictly and told not to hang round with chavs(not in the exact words).

    but then again there are quite a lot of triads about.

    It's that but I think that it's also in their upbringing.

    It's in the strict upbringing. If you go to somewhere like Hong Kong, you don't see the chav nonsense that you see in London at all. Like anywhere though, you will still get muggings, etc.

    My old boss was taking about his time in China (he is Chinese). He was talking about how violent armed robbers were (on the mainland I think) where because the penalty (death) for armed robbers was so strict that they would kill anyhow as they had nothing to lose...

    One of the best bosses I ever had.

    Chinese people are great, One of my ex was a chinese, her dad is very humble and nice. I went to their house and man, i was blown away with the amount of Quality that was there. Everything is good taste. What strike me is they live a humble life in the public but they are filthy rich.
    My ex was great too, she's just different from any girl i ever been out with and she's just like her dad. I also notice that they dont find it hard to accept other people's culture and idea unlike say.....an African or a pakistani/india etc.
    That's my experience of them, and i think they are great bunch of race. :cool:

    Indeed you don't. Also you never see like a middle-aged sort of one.

    You see the young 'uns and the really old ones. You never see like a 38 year old, they must age overnight. Like a peach.

    ;)

    Radio 4 the other day was talking about the Chinese in this country; very informative. One of the stat's that blew me away was ...... over 90% of the youngsters go to university.

    I think thats to do with most of the ones in this country are in this country because they could afford to leave china..

    We get the cream of the crop over here...the ones that want to make a better life for themselves AND can afford it..

    The lack of chavs and thugs thing is deffo down to the upbringing...its all about education and most darent go against their parents :o

    different cultures innit.

    Chinatown in Manchester has some rather nasty Chinese people in it. Manchester has a lot of illegal Chinese immigrants that I could definately say aren't cream of the crop.

    There are Chinese crime gangs in Sydney down here.

    Its the indians that are hardly on it down here
