    The Associated Press
    WASHINGTON (AP) - The State Department says it has teamed up with Black Eyed Peas rapper will.i.am to direct a concert in the Chinese capital later this year to support cultural and education exchanges between the United States and China.

    In a statement, the department said Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton met with will.i.am on Friday to discuss the Obama administration's "100,000 Strong Initiative," which seeks to significantly increase the number and diversity of American students in China.

    The Beijing concert, in which will.i.am and other American and Chinese pop stars will perform, will benefit and promote the initiative, it said.

    Details about the other performers, date and specific venue of the concert were not immediately available.

    "Darn those Chinese", the PTB must be saying. "Gotta get them away from their insistence on a homogenous society and have them embrace wonderful diversity!" "If we can get them to all love rap music, maybe they will import half of Africa, and their society will collapse in a heap!"

    I had no idea until recently, but there are actually many blacks in China. Many Chinese men are marrying them.

    I was unaware of that. In my recent trips to Shanghai and Souzhou, I saw exactly zero blacks. Not even any black tourists, so I'm not sure where they're hiding them. As for Chinese males marrying black women, well I guess someone has to do it:afro:

    About 5 years ago, I visited Shanghai and Beijing for a month as part of a college program. The only blacks I saw in Shanghai were 2 fellas from my school. They constantly had Chinese people pointing and starring at them. Guess it was rare to see them. As for Beijing, we interacted with about a half dozen negros, all of whom tried to sell us drugs. After a few days of this we talked with one guy who said they come from West Africa (mostly Ghana and Ivory Coast). He told us that when the farming season ends, they go to China for a few months to "work". Africans really know how to enrich the culture of a foreign nation.

    I know that's happening between Chinese men and African women in Africa with China colonizing that Continent for its resources, but I seriously doubt it's happening in China as there simply aren't that many black females there to make this happen.

    The massive disparity in numbers between Chinese males and Chinese females, due to female infanticide, as well as the fact that many Western (White) men are marrying Chinese women in China, gives Chinese males little other choice. So, many Chinese men are coming to the West and marrying White women, especially on the West coasts of both the U.S. and Canada. As more and more economic power is transferred (deliberately) to China, this pairing will only increase in the future.

    China can have all of our "diversity" population if they want.

    Very interesting topic. I too had no idea the push for "multiculturalism" and "diversity" in China has been going on for sometime. Unlike what's happening in the West, I don't think the Chinese will fully embrace such a thing. More like tolerate it, as long as the money and revenues keep coming in. Despite the massive disparity between Chinese men and Chinese women (due to female infanticide as mentioned), there are still 1.3 billion Chinese people. That's more than the entire world population of whites, ranging from 600 million to 1 billion.

    The globalist/elitist push for "multiculturalism" and "diversity" in China won't have visible effects for at least 25 years, and that's just in the cities. Still, I wouldn't mind seeing China experience the burden of having "turd" world trash, something the West already has too much off.
