I'm from a nice little town in southern China. I have been living in Toronto long enough to see the gradual change of local Chinese community. I understand your point. But do you really think that people from Mainland China dislike HK people in general simply because of their "inferiority complex"? Have you ever thought why they are standoff HK people in particular? People like you and me are just ordinary people. If you are nice to me, I'll be nice to you. If you ever helped me, maybe just a small thing, I'll remember your kindness, and tell people around me how nice you are. Now tell me honestly, have you ever done anything to help a new comer from mainland? Have you ever looked at them without bias? Have you ever experienced the tough situation they are currently facing to? If the answer is no, then could you say something positive, something encouraging, something warm, instead of scold them for their "pride"? When you see "disgusting acts committed by our fellow chinaman", I'm wondering what kind of magic keeps disgusting acts committed by HK people transparent to you. If all you do is hurting people, how could you possibly earn respect?
Now don't argue with me. Think. Think carefully.
There's one more thing I must point out. DO NOT ever use the word "chinaman". It's a word that European used to insult Chinese a century ago. It's like call a black man "nigger". I can forgive you for anything. But if you purposely call Chinese "chinaman", I will not only paint "uneducated thug" on you forehead, but also I will fight you to death.
I have some really good friends from HK. You, however, won't be one of them.
