No Dogs, But Also No Japanese, Filipinos, Or Vietnamese Allowed? [UPDATE]

This shop does not receive (Houhai)

So, it seems that some people have yet to fully understand why racism is a bad thing. With tensions in the South China Sea remaining high, we’re still being treated to bizarre examples of unhealthy nationalism.

The latest can be found here in Beijing: the proprietors of a snack shop in Houhai called Beijing Snacks [百年卤者] have put up a notice refusing customers from countries engaged in maritime disputes with China. 

The bilingual sign above, via Rose Tang, reads: “本店不接待日本人菲律宾人越南人和狗 — This shop does not receive the Japanese, the Philippines, the Vietnamese, and dog.”

This kind of sign would result in a hefty fine in most places and instant removal, but here, it’s more likely that a restaurant gets in trouble for “hurting the feelings of Chinese people” by referring to sensitive history. About a year ago, a restaurant in Shanghai was fined 47,500 yuan for mentioning the “French Concession” in an ad. Love for country in the form of overt discrimination? No problem!

UPDATE, 2/28, 12:44 amApparently the Philippine government is aware of this sign. Via ABS-CBNnews:

Meantime, the Philippine government on Wednesday said it is treating as an isolated incident a Beijing restaurant’s refusal to serve Filipinos and other customers from countries locked in maritime territorial disputes with China.

In a press conference, Foreign Affairs Spokesman Raul Hernandez said the Philippine government is aware of the photos posted on social networking sites of the restaurant in Beijing.

Asked about the controversy, Hernandez said: “We think the notice that was posted on that shop in Beijing is a private view about the whole situation that is happening between the Philippines and China.”

“We hope it is not state policy not to allow Filipinos in restaurants in Beijing,” he added.

Meanwhile:

A report by Radio Free Asia earlier quoted the Beijing restaurant’s owner as saying that he put up the sign out of patriotism. “Chinese customers support me,” the owner, identified as Wang, told BBC News.

UPDATE, 3/2, 3:45 pm: The owner reportedly removed the sign on Thursday, but remains defiant about it.

Koreans are genetically terrorists and a public threat to the very existence of all humankind.Koreans are extremely narcissistic and self-centered rubbish,they are culturally poor and envious,they fabricate history to satisfy their endless narcissisism,and stole Chinese culture to verify their fabrication.Shamelessness and No sense of dignity makes Korean the most hated race in Asia. They are physically ugly and twisted,that’s why tons of them are so obessed with comestic surgery.Go to hell,enslaved Korean parasites!

    How to control 1.4 billion poeples. This i have to give credit to the chinese government. Bravo ..bravo… The first step is they have to turn them(the chinese peoples) as stupid as possible so they don’t think of revolve (so stupid that they can’t think like a normal human being to do anything right). Recently I have learn that not to mess with China or the chinese or the CMIA (china mentally ill army). Why?. WHO (world health organization) have a reports saying that an estimate of over 100 000 000 million chinese peoples in china with serious mental health problem with no help from the government. What this mean is if u mess with them, all they need to do is send those mentally ill chinese people to your country then you are dead. How many country in this world with population of over 100 000 000 million. China always call other country name like dog, wolf and wild dog. What about china. If those country are animal then China is like SARS virus poisoining this beaitiful world. Oh yeah sorry SARS is come from China.

    What is it that many pinoys STILL call the Chinese? Inchik baboy? Doesn’t that mean ‘Chinese Pig’? And given that I’ve eaten dog a number of times in Luzon, perhaps it’s a profound blessing that a restaurant proudly states that there are no dogs inside.

    Personally, I find it no worse than some old auntie in Manila loudly exclaiming so that EVERYONE could hear “si mukang puti iyan mabahoooooooo!” She herself, nota bene, reeked of home cooking: daing and bago’ong.

    That’s ok, we dont eat fetus and please ask your Mom, sisters, etc to shave their armpits. That will help us to distinguish a human and a monkey.

    Well, well! Come on people. Let’s not overreact here. We have to learn to accept the differences in people from different cultures and open your arms or business to welcome the Chinese to show that we can welcome all the same. In response to that restaurant owner, I made a sign on my dog clinic door saying ” Grooming Special: Obedient and Semi-Obedient Dogs @ $50.00, Stupid Dogs and Chinese @ 25.00″. Stop discriminating, people! Show your love!!!
