Disputes happen on the streets all the time, but there’s always a bad way to resolve conflicts and a better way. The example here, from Chengdu, represents the former.
I don’t want to speculate. But I see what I see, and others, surely, will as well: a white man spits in the face of a Chinese dude before absconding on his bike. This is bad. No matter what happened to precipitate the disagreement, spitting in someone’s face immediately before hightailing it seems, at best, cowardly. In this day and age of civility and shit, the act of spitting in a person’s face is difficult to justify even if one is in the right. Again, I’m not taking sides, necessarily; just saying that it looks really bad, all things considered. Youku video for those in China after the jump.
