A collection of illustrations created by a Hong Kong designer has gone viral for its controversial comparisons between Hong Kong and China with the designer strongly favoring Hong Kong over China. The collection titled “Hong Kong is Not China” features 24 illustrations depicting the difference between mainland China and Hong Kong, covering topics including cultural habits, discipline, language and socio-political issues such as judicial structures, food safety and censorship. Some people have expressed anger and indignation at this “campaign of hate” and said it is unjust generalization and prejudice against China.
There is a lot of heated debate going on with these comparisons, with some agreeing with the comparisons and others revoking against it, while the rest sees it as a harmless attempt at humor. What do you think? Let us know in the comments below!
