中国人怎么对中国人??

This may be a sensitive topic.

 

What do people in China think of Chinese people who cannot speak putonghua?

 

Do you look at them as an inferior species because they cannot speak putonghua? Do you think they even should be called ethnic Chinese? 

 

很久以前,我认识一位香港人。他在中国内地旅游。当时他不会说普通话。就算他讲粤语,内地人告诉他 <你不是中国人 >。现在在外国有很多中国人不会讲汉语。他们怎么样?他们都是中国人吗?

中国的传统文化观念之一就是“不忘本”。

One of Chinese culture:Don't forget who you are and where are you from!

语言是文化的一种,所以很多人潜意识里认为不说普通话,就不是中国人。

但我认为这些人的理解出了问题,普通话是20世纪才提出的,中国民族众多,语言也有很多种(包括粤语),普通话的出现是为了使大家的沟通更加顺利,是为了让我们彼此更亲近,而不是为了区分你是哪里人,我是哪里人,然后产生更大的隔阂(misunderstanding)。

 

“现在在外国有很多中国人不会讲汉语。他们怎么样?他们都是中国人吗?”我想他们有权利选择自己是哪国人,而不是让其他人去做判断。

哥们儿。不好意思,我应该写中国人怎么对华人。

 

@Dina, “现在在外国有很多中国人不会讲汉语。他们怎么样?他们都是中国人吗?”我想他们有权利选择自己是哪国人,而不是让其他人去做判断。

 

我同意。

 

我有一个华人朋友住在。他不会讲汉语。几天前在伦敦有一个中国内地人告诉他《你应该学习中文》因为我的朋友是华人。

这个中国人真很笨,不聪明, 让我的朋友生气。我的朋友没有兴趣学习汉语,但是这个中国人告诉他需要做什么。

如果我的朋友先说《我想学习汉语》,这个情况没有问题。

我的朋友回答《China doesn't recognise me, so why should I learn Chinese?》

那个中国人没有答案.

 

If you are Chinese and meet an ethnic Chinese person either in China or overseas who doesn't speak the common language:

 

1) Don't say to them "you are not (ethnic) Chinese because you don't speak Chinese" - that is like insulting people.

 

2) Don't say "you should learn Chinese" because it's incredibly rude to tell people what they should be doing with their lives without knowing them better. You can ask them if they ever considered learning Chinese, but do not say the "should" word. It doesn't sound good in English.

如果他们不是持有中国公民证的话,应该不算是中国人,顶多是华裔或华人。比如我是马来西亚华裔,如果我称自己为中国人,我相信内地人也不会承认我吧。

 

一般来讲,香港人是中国人,官方网页都称香港为中国香港,香港人为中国籍男子或女子,不管他们是否会说普通话。

 

谢谢。^_^

孔子说了,要懂得“中庸”,要懂得“己所不欲勿施于人”。

 

在一个*民主*国家,自己的选择关别人啥事。

 

严重怀疑某些人的教育和思想。

@Learner SC: Maybe it would be even more interesting to discuss the possible reasons behind certain behavioral paradigms that you have raised. But I fear that this probably would not be a popular thing to do here. I admire your courage, Good Luck!
