Chinas next shameful actMikey 15 comments
What is it about China and their constant quest to appear perfect in the eyes of the rest of the world? What are they so self conscious about? Or the bigger question, how could they be so naive to think we are falling for it?
Making headlines this morning is seven year old Yang Peiyi (pictured right). You might have heard Yang sing during the opening ceremonies of the Beijing Olympics, but you certainly would not have seen her. Apparently they thought little Yang was , so she was replaced by the cuter Lin Miaoke, who lip synced to Yang's voice through the singing performance.
I would really like to know how this was explained to little Pang and her parents.
Let me go on the record and say that having China host the Olympics has made what is normally a great event turn into one of the ugliest spectacles in recent Olympic memory. Taking into account the human rights abuses, and the efforts taken to portray themselves as perfect despite the rest of the world knowing just how far they have gone to fake their way through it all, I would say China's effort thus far has been disgusting and they should be ashamed.
