IT'S THE ANGLOSPHERE, NOT CHINA:

Chinese professor calls Hong Kong residents 'dogs of British imperialists' (Jonathan Watts, 1/24/12, The Guardian)

A professor at one of China's most prestigious universities has stirred up a hornets' nest in Hong Kong after publicly calling residents of the territory "bastards", "thieves" and "dogs of British imperialists".

Kong Qingdong of Peking University launched the tirade during a webcast interview at the weekend that has tarnished the reputation of his employer and intensified an already fierce debate about relations between Hong Kong and the mainland.

Recent surveys suggest only a third of the 7 million people in the territory consider themselves Chinese though almost 15 years have passed since the handover from British rule.
