I've gotten the "you're a foreigner so you can never understand" crap, even though I know more about their history, culture, and traditions than most of the locals. I've been threatened out with my Chinese wife a few times. One guy tried to convince me MY wife was HIS girlfriend with four people with him. Pointed and shouted it is common place here. They are really immature little children at heart. Mocked is normal too, especially if they think you don't speak the language or understand it. Assaulted. . .luckily, I'm 6'2" and built like an NFL Offensive Lineman, so that, thankfully, hasn't happened to me (yet). But I do agree. Sadly, "white" looking is always given preference.
