TV Talent Show Exposes China’s Race Issue

From CNN:

It all started with the lure of the glitz, the glamour and the dream of being China’s next pop star. But, as with many reality shows, ’s instant fame came with unanticipated consequences.

Lou Jing was born 20 years ago in Shanghai to a Chinese mother and an African-American father. According to her mother, who asked not to be identified in this report, she met Lou’s father while she was still in college. He left China before their daughter was born.

Growing up with a single mom in central Shanghai, Lou Jing said she had good friends and lived a normal life. “When I was young, I didn’t feel any different,” she said.
