“CKM is a globalized place in Hong Kong, which claims itself as an international city (Mathews, 2011)”
In the ten years leading to 2016, the ethnic minorities in Hong Kong had grown by 60%.
It is important for us to learn and respect different cultures, strengthening social cohesion.
CKM is regarded by the local Chinese as a “heart of darkness” because of their unfamiliarity with developing countries and their perception of the community as a haven of crime and of people in the low social class.
Is it true ? Find the answer by yourself!!
