Not sure how it could be racist… best I can tell, the Xi-Pooh mockery started inside China and other Asian countries like Hong Kong and Taiwan.

I don’t see what Xi Jinping and Winnie the Pooh have in common. Except Winnie the Pooh is yellow and asians are called yellow

Are you so delusional as to actually think the winnie the pooh comparisons are because of racism.

Ok then, what are these comparisons about?

It’s because Jinping started censoring winnie the pooh and clearly disliked being compared with him, so everyone who disliked Jinping jumped on the opportunity. It has nothing to do with race. If Putin or any other tyrant had censored pooh, the result would have been the same, regardless of whether they were white, black, brown, purple, had polka dots or were an alien from mars.

Jinping is his first name btw, it makes as much sense as calling Biden, Joe or Bush, George.

China did not censor winnie the pooh, you can literally go on any chinese e-shop and find items. Every year only so many foreign films are allowed in cinemas in China and the Christopher Robin movie did not make the cut in 2018, that’s literally all there is to this story lol. In fact the Winnie the Pooh comparison was originally endearing and made by Chinese netizens:

Until Redditors got wind of it, thought they invented it themselves, and started pulling shit like this:

Are you so delusional as to think that this photoshop is not racist? Since you talked about Putin, do you see the parallel between the picture above and this one?

You talk very confidently for someone who is, however, very wrong.

If Putin or any other tyrant

What makes Xi a tyrant?

It’s because Jinping started censoring winnie the pooh and clearly disliked being compared with him

Where did Xi ever care about the comparisons? I’d think he has more important stuff to do than worry about what some redditors think of him.

Wait that image comparing Xi and Obama to Pooh and Tigger was originally made by Chinese people and was meant to be endearing? I was under the impression that it was created by the same people who post those cringe yellowface edits like your second example.

Because the joke is that Pooh is fat and yellow & Tigger is one letter away from… yeah. It’s very unfortunate that the meme became what it is if it started out like that.

mainstream media says it was meant to be thinly critical of Xi since there are censors on Chinese social media, but I just can’t agree with their argument there, because the user who posted the first picture (they drew the artwork themselves) did not say anything about Xi or the CPC.

Possibly later it was picked up by colour revolutionists in China to use against the CPC, but again the MS media doesn’t provide any evidence for this that I’ve seen (apart from maybe one or two screenshots, hardly a trend).

It’s funny that libs say because it originated on Chinese social media, they are allowed to use it too – i.e. it’s not racist because they do it… These are the people that really, really, want to use the n-word.

Isn’t the point of a debate that two people have disagreeing opinions?

or the logic behind censoring something without reason

We established that Winnie was not censored in China so idk why you’re still on that.

Well yes, but this is like trying to debate about aliens with someone who doesn’t believe the universe outside earth exists.

Yeah bro evil CCP censors Pooh so much, Shang Hai Disneyland has a Winnie the Pooh ride.

Go back to r/ worldnews.

Hey look, a genzedong user.

Shanghai is also a special business zone and singular examples prove nothing.

Hey look, ad hominem, followed by ‘Reality doesn’t matter if it doesn’t support my baseless fairy tales.’

This site is just reddit 2,0.
