As a mother to 3 African American grown children and 3 white children, here’s the information I’d want my kids to have before they decided if they wanted to live in China or in any Asian country. My Ethiopian son, Allen, and his lovely wife, Laura, did teach English in Japan for 3 years and despite the racism Allen sometimes faced, they had a great time. I wouldn’t recommend it to everyone though. I suggest you do your due diligence before you go by reading the following blogs and talking to other African Americans who lived in China or who are living in China. Allen is always happy to chat with anyone on the phone or by email so just let me know if you’d like his info. ~Annette Thompson
