Hong Kong Racial Discrimination Description As an international city, multiculturalism do existed in Hong Kong. 6.5% of Hong Kong’s population is part of an ethnic minority, including Nepalese, Indian, Pakistani, and Filipino. But at the same time, racial discrimination in Hong Kong which has long been ignored is still prevalent in school, workplace and everywhere. The minority are difficult to bind in the Hong Kong culture and society. Hong Kong may not be as racist as suggested by the world map, made by The Washington Post, on racial tolerance published in 2015.
In Hong Kong this sign is viewed as something quotidian and straightforward, the use of Simple English gets the message across readers who graduated from different levels of education. However, imagine putting this sign 12,719 kilometers across the world in the United States, it will no longer be one of those ordinary signs that people look at and walk pass. Instead, it will be considered as one of those, “language errors” that gets on the headlines of The New York Times, being criticized and ridiculed. During the years, 1841 to 1997, Hong Kong was a colony of the British Empire.

Along with Mainland China, Hong Kong is being recognised as an international finance centre. This is because of its proximity to the mainland China which provides the organisations an ideal location. (Dean Stallard, 2016). Diversity spreads across all levels of organisations and is a fundamental concept in business.

Hong Kong had become the Pearl of the Orient for decades ago; the name comes from the scenery of Hong Kong and created by the tourist who had visited Hong Kong before. The great lifestyle and the natural beauty of the city have attracted tourist from different nations.

Introduction Conflict in Hong Kong is easily to associate with the Hong Kong-Mainland conflict, it had aroused another related dispute of the representation of self-identification. The media in Hong Kong is playing an important role for the above issue as the majority of local were indoctrinated to exaggerate the conflict by the mass media from Hong Kong and the conflict was being escalated therefore. The conflict incidents in terms of behavior, language, and political were easily found in our everyday life.

In my opinion, same sex marriage should be legalised in Hong Kong because it can help promote social progress, and help improving Hong Kong’s social condition as a whole. Some opponents claimed that once same sex marriage is legalized, Hong Kong’s social security might be threatened. It is because same sex couples are unable to reproduce naturally, Hong Kong’s birth rate would be lowered after the legalization. Such changes in birth rate may also lead to an aging population, as well as shrinkage in labor force, disrupting Hong Kong’s social progress in the end. Yet, I personally do not agree with the claim.
Hong Kong has been characterized as a minority ever since it was a colony of Great Britain to where it 's at today. After two decades, China 's discrimination towards Hong Kong continues today, as a result of its historical colonization from Great Britain, political status ,and protests for independence. The historical colonization of Hong Kong plays a big role in the discrimination that people experience. During the Qing Dynasty, Chinese people dislike foreigners and all the ideas regarding them. The British wanted to trade with China ,but China refuse to trade with them because there was nothing that they produced that was useful for the Chinese.
