Africans in Guangzhou

Interesting article on traders from Africa in Guangzhou in "Chocolate City" ("chocolate" is how Chinese people refer to Blacks).

It's interesting that they are resentful over the Chinese buying some of their resources - and doesn't bode well for what might happen after regimes change as they are often violently wont to do in Africa. Incidentally, I used to think that it was bizarre hearing a British Chinese accent... but that got topped by the time I heard a Chinese guy who had learned to speak English in Nigeria (probably just as radical as a Chinese person with a Jamaican accent).
