Big Trouble In China’s Chocolate City

From Toronto Star:

GUANGZHOU, China–The scene stunned the local, law-abiding Chinese: They’d never seen anything like it.

At a busy intersection in the heart of this southern city recently, angry Africans carried a bleeding black man, held aloft, across eight lanes of heavy traffic to deposit him smack at a police station’s door.

Almost immediately hundreds of other Africans converged on the station – shouting for the police to come out and take responsibility.

The wounded man’s name was Emmanuel Okoro of Nigeria.

Trapped in a police raid on illegal immigrants that afternoon, Okoro chose to leap from the second floor of a shopping mall rather than be arrested.
