# there is a difference between a nation and a culture
# there is a difference between the political actions of a state and the actions and motivations of its people
# and that is what the olympics is about for me
# that is why i am invested in the teams in which i am invested
# and at the end of the day i will never be over 2008 because it was generalizations everywhere
# and i am so mad
# i knew this walking into these olympics and still i did it anyway
# news flash: the cold war has ended
# news flash: there is no more soviet union
# news flash: chinese people (actually on occasion) love their children the same way that other people love their children
# take your reductive generalizing bullshit out of your commentary please
# i actually do respect you as a network
# i just want you to respect me as a person
# and obviously the 'me' here is being generalized
# but shit still stands
# disclaimer: i'm not an emotionless calculated robot
# disclaimer: i am still chinese
# disclaimer: china is a huge fucking country with an enormous amount of people who all have varying degrees of cultural and national pride?
# just like any other country?
# sometimes the people are more than their country and sometimes the country does not represent the people and that's okay
# in the olympics sometimes that happens?
# the olympics are bigger than this
# and i love the olympics a lot and one day i hope it loves me back
