EMT. No uséis este gesto a los pasajeros asiáticos.

Todos los conductores de autobús de la EMT usan un gesto moviéndose el dedo índice para negación. Dicho gesto es común en España. Pero, soy asiático, en Asia, este gesto es provocativo y descortés. En Asia, usamos el gesto moviéndonos toda la palma para negación. Por eso, yo digo seriamente que los conductores, no usen el gesto moviéndose el dedo índice a los pasajeros asiáticos.

Europe has 741 million people. China has 1,4 billion people. So of course there are people in every country with bad behavior, but because of that, you can’t generalize the whole Chinese population saying they all eat dog, are racists and shit outside historical buildings.
