    Well, that's their culture... cheating is OK so long as it gives you an advantage.

    Well... that definitely is not the culture of the Chinese. I myself is a Chinese and I was never raise to cheat. That is the culture of individual bad apples in a country (and in this case... it look like entire society was starting to rot). I am hoping that the rest of China was not like that... Really scary.

    Cheating in the Chinese Imperial Exams of old is a quite well known.

    I remembered going to the Shanghai World Expo and all these chinese families were cutting queue by getting their kids to sit in a wheelchair. The kids keep getting up to walk when they're bored and the parents keep asking them to pretend to be handicapped.

    Something like this but this one is the mother:

    The only pavilion I could cut queue was the Singapore one when I showed them my Singapore passport.

    At least at that time, people know that is wrong... and so it is not their culture... unlike what we are seeing now.

    This is a cheat sheet used during the Imperial Exams. The fonts used is extremely small and I have great difficulty reading the actual script in the museum.

    Naaah not racist, nor am I afraid of foreigners.

    Racist would be against all Chinese, including the Chinese found all over the world.

    I'm simply stating the obvious about a cultural aspect of that specific country.
