Comment on The Fake Xinjiang Allegations Caused me to Lose my Job & Friends

Sounds rough mate. Do I understand it correctly that you are of Chinese origin?

I can understand what you mean. I support China too and I'm more and more vocal about it as well. What works for me when engaging in discussion is that I try to remain as calm as possible while also stating the facts I have at my disposal. A lot of people can't argue their way around actual facts as they can most of the time hear themselves rambling. If it doesn't work I just agree to disagree on it and leave it. I never get angry.

On the one hand you don't want to become a pariah, on the other hand you also don't want to just accept the lies people tell you all the time. It's a difficult balance to find. Especially when you're not the one being hostile. Remaining calm and collected and convinced of your point of view is important here. I know it's hard, but don't let these people beat you down. Stay strong, but vent if you need to.
