Do Chinese People HATE Americans? – Countries China Likes/Hates

Matthew: So, the really funny thing, Vivi,
is that the countries that hate America typically like China. Now, which countries do you think
hate China the most? We know it’s not America. Hey, laowinners. It’s laowhy86 here with
another video. Do Chinese people hate us, and, by us, I mean Americans? Let’s find out.
So, an interesting poll came out by the Pew study group and they found out that about
44% of Americans have a favorable opinion of you, Chinese people, which means 66% of
Americans have a negative view of China, right? However, that is up from last year which was
only 37% favorable, right? So, that’s kind of interesting first. Now, China is a little
bit different. China is split right down the middle with 50% of people with a favorable
opinion of us Americans, a 50% with an unfavourable opinion. We’re going to talk about why that
is, possibly, and also talk about how other countries feel about China and the US as well.
So, Vivi, you as a Chinese person yourself, right, would you say that the general opinion
of America is positive or negative in China? Vivi: I mean, back then is not necessary bad, it’s cool and it’s equal to…like, American is like us being respectful as…what’s
it called… Matthew: Check out all dudes these getting
tattoos. Anyway. Vivi: …as British people, but the thing
is, like, you know, Chinese people, they tend to easily get manipulated.
Matthew: Like, riled up. Vivi: Riled up by the…what’s it called?
By the government news. Matthew: So, you’re saying the media basically,
in China, will make the populace feel negatively or positively.
Vivi: Yeah. They technically leading the hatred. So, for example, if you have, like, in the
government, for example Taiwan have anything to do with, like Japan, Diao Yu Dao.
Matthew: Right. Vivi: …then Japan go suffer, you know,
and then they hate the Chinese. Matthew: Right.
Vivi: And recently, China and America have the fight the…the economy…
Matthew: The trade war? Vivi: The trade war, and then American become
the target and then, somehow, some, like, seriously, it’s like period of time, period
of time. Sometimes, it’s like Korean. Sometimes it’s this. Totally most of the hatred is
totally because of the news. Matthew: Right. I was going to say, like,
when I first came to China, it was like mostly positive and people would be like, oh, America,
that’s so cool and then, like, the government would put something out on the news, and then
you’d have an old man in the elevator being like, oh, you’re American, go home, you know
what I mean? Vivi: Here, we not necessarily trying to point
our finger to who leading this but… Matthew: Right.
Vivi: …media seriously is… Matthew: Chinese people are affected by the
media greatly… Vivi: Yes, yes.
Matthew: …and it’s just a propaganda tool and that’s just how it is, right? Now, if
I was to ask you this, right? This is interesting. If you were to guess what countries like America
the most, like the most favorable opinion, what would you guess?
Vivi: Japan. Matthew: Okay. Any other ideas?
Vivi: Any other ideas? I don’t think it’s Europe.
Matthew: Europe is not a country but, yeah, I know what you mean. European countries.
Vivi: I mean European countries. I don’t think they’re a huge fan. I don’t know.
Matthew: Now, I was surprised to find out. So, according to the Pew poll, the five top
countries with favorable opinions of America are Poland, which is in Europe, South Korea,
Philippines. Vivi: Wow.
Matthew: Israel, which makes a lot of sense. I mean, they’re kind of…
Vivi: Yeah, yeah. Matthew: …the only reason they exist is
because of the US, and, number one, do you know, this shocked me, the number one was
Vietnam. Vivi: What?
Matthew: Vietnam has the most highly favorable opinion. They love us and it’s so weird…
Vivi: That is so weird. Matthew: …because we went to war.
Vivi: You remember, like, the… Matthew: Like recently.
Vivi: …the, how much, like, old people hate like the history, right?
Matthew: Right. Vivi: …like the…
Matthew: Like Japan. Vivi: Japan.
Matthew: Like China, yeah. Vivi: Infact the whole history
and America caused a lot of problems… Matthew: Right. Matthew: It’s kind of ridiculous. Now, what
about countries that hate America? What do you think those are?
Vivi: China, for sure. Matthew: Well, we know that it was 50/50,
so there’s definitely worse ones. So, the top five, and this changes every year, but
the worst countries for opinion of America, for unfavorable opinion, are Mexico, Tunisia,
Lebanon, Turkey, and Jordan, and Mexico has usually had a favorable opinion but that’s
changed obviously and we know why that is, right?
Vivi: Yeah. Matthew: We’re going to get hit by a car.
We know why that is. That’s very clear that, you know, Trump’s policies have affected the
perception, right? Now, what countries do you think like China?
Vivi: Like China? Matthew: Yeah.
Vivi: I don’t think it’s Western country. Matthew: You don’t think it’s any Western
countries? Vivi: No. I don’t think so,
Matthew: You might be surprised. So, the really funny thing, Vivi, is that the countries that
hate America typically like China. So, you have places like Tunisia, you have places
like Lebanon, you have places like Turkey that have a very favorable opinion of China.
Vivi: I think, like, South Africa [unintelligible – 05:42] probably because we invest so much.
Matthew: So, you think the African investment has something to do with that…
Vivi: A little bit, I guess. Matthew: …positive opinion? Now, the number
one country that loves China the most, it’s not south…it’s not South Africa. It’s actually
in West Africa and that is Nigeria. Vivi: Wow. See?
Matthew: So, Nigerians absolutely are loving the hell out of China and, yeah, tons of investment,
ton of cooperative projects, right? Now, which countries do you think hate China the most?
We know it’s not America. America’s got 44% positive. There’s some…I’ll say this. The
average countries that like America are much higher and the average countries that don’t
like China are much lower on the scale, meaning the hate is very strong.
Vivi: I think southeast Asia not so…I think don’t like…Philippines probably don’t
like China. Matthew: Okay. So, you’re saying Philippines,
Vietnam. Vivi: And also, like, southeast Asia probably.
Matthew: Okay. Vivi: And Japan. I don’t think they like us
too much because we don’t like them. Matthew: Alright. It’s mutual.
Vivi: Yeah. Matthew: So…
Vivi: And I’m not…yeah. I think most of the people…like, if, like, the most don’t
like China probably is just the Asia area. Matthew: Okay. Look at the mad rush. Where
are we going? Down here? So, like I said, most of the countries that don’t like China
like America. It’s pretty much like that the other way around. So, the countries that don’t
like China are Japan, of course. I think only 11% of people had a favorable opinion. South
Korea like you said… Vivi: Oh, that’s great.
Matthew: Oh, that is awesome. Look at that. That’s a pretty sweet temple. Matthew: Vietnam actually is the worst. They
hate you guys the most. You guys had a recent war.
Vivi: I don’t get why though. Matthew: So did we. That’s what I don’t understand.
Vivi: Yeah. Matthew: And, also, there’s all kinds of border
disputes there. I’m going to talk about that some other time, but also, weirdly enough,
Jordan which also hates America also really hates China, which I thought was weird, and,
also, most of Europe had a pretty, like, split down the middle opinion about China, but Italy
freaking hates you guys. Italy, for some… Vivi: Why?
Matthew: I don’t know. I have no idea. Vivi: I mean, like, you’re…probably…I’m
not sure that’s because of tourists.
Matthew: You think it’s…oh, maybe it’s all the Chinese tourists in Italy. You think
that’s the reason? Vivi: I mean, like, Chinese tourists in the whole world are horrible. Matthew: Right. That’s true. That is true.
Anyway, I just wanted to…I thought these polls are really, really interesting to think
about what countries like and hate each other based on, like, public opinion instead of,
like, what the governments are doing, and it kind of shocked me, some of the results.
You know what also shocked me is how loud and freaking hot it is here. So, anyway, one
thing we can kind of end this on, on a positive note, is that it doesn’t really matter what
these polls say because we are a living embodiment that it doesn’t matter who hates and loves
each other because we love each other so very, very much. Is that right? That’s what I want
you to think at least. If you guys like this video, please go downstairs, and leave a like.
Also, if you want to see more, all the, you know, kind of the stuff that we can’t really
talk about on camera, go to and you can support the channel there. Also,
there’s merch for sale downstairs. If you see down there’s a little
bar. There’s also this dude smacking his head on the ground. And you can support the channel
through merch and all kind of stuff like that, and there’s all kinds of delicious goodies
and behind-the-scenes stuff that you guys can help us out on, and, most importantly,
I want to say thank you so much, laowinners, and I will catch you…
Vivi: …on the next one.

  • Italy don't like China because they were the cheap manufacture before China came and knocked them completely out of the game

  • According to the polls, China gets more hateful than favorable. Maybe the Chinese people should do something with their government to correct that!:-(

  • Carlos Spicyweiner says:

    Id like the Chinese people a hell of a lot more if they stopped the Yulin dog eating festival! And Id like Japanese more too if they were to stop their Taiji dolphin eating festival!

  • Ronald Garrison says:

    Everybody will love us Americans when we finally finish what we started and get OFF this rock. Elon Musk has the right idea, but of course it will take a billion times more than what he's doing to make it happen.

  • Chinese don’t hate Americans but I think they hate you because you are a idiot…the YouTube video shown is not inside the China 🇨🇳…

  • The governments and media in most countries are now the spoilers of people’s happiness. It’s certainly easy to understand the yellow vest movements firing up in many countries. Thank you for your wonderful videos!

  • I was in the Vietnam war as an infantry officer. I have no animosity towards the Vietnamese at all. Many of my comrades revisited Vietnam and were well received. I was with the Big Red One at Quan Loi. I remember Thanksgivings day at the Song Be Bridge. There was a platoon of South Vietnamese who lived on the bridge with their families. It was a beautiful spot except for the mine field under the bridge of course. Anyway they were very nice to us. Invited some of us to dinner in their houses built in the iron supports of the bridge. I often wondered whatever happened to those nice people. I hope the communists didn’t mistreat them.

  • Hate is a strong word: Taiwanese, Japanese, Vietnamese, Burmese, etc, either dislike mainlanders or consider them uncultured & low class.

  • The KS values of the statistics used by your source are pitiful. No modelling professional would dare take this seriously, and that's not even bothering with the lack of segmentation transparency…

  • Hm, 43% favourable of China and 31% of US in Spain, that surprises me. I thought it would be between 40 and 50 for both. Italy just hates you because now everybody knows they stole pasta from you. xD

  • Israel exists only because of the US? What an absolutely historically illiterate thing to say. If anything South Korea exists today only thanks to massive, and direct American intervention during the Korean War and the maintenance of a large military presence ever since then. The US never directly intervened in any Israli war, has no combat units stationed there, and didn't offer any substantial military aid till 1973. While the US has been its most important ally for the last 50 years, Israel owes its existence much more to Great Britain, who administered the Palestinian Mandate, and the Soviet Union and Czechoslovakia who were the only ones to give Israel military aid during its founding and most perilous war for independence.

  • I like to think Nigeria likes China so much because they have helped out the Nigerian Prince through email more than any other country.

  • Need to change the question. Does government hate each other or the people of the country. I don't like China government. But love the people from China I have met. Yes I'm American.

  • It seems American medias did the same thing to propaganda to its people, since most Americans are not smart enough as Chinese which means they have no right opinions rather than being taught by medias.

  • Countries in Africa must love colonialism, because that's what China is doing to much of Africa…Give Senegal and Nigeria a decade to revisit the 'China likeability rating". It will be interesting.

  • Bobby and TT in Isaan says:

    Must always remember. The Communist Party of China is always pulling the strings. The Chinese government and the people really have no power or say.

  • I'm surprised to see Italy there, although we are a big ally of the US we love the chinese, there are tons of chinese shops here and everything is so convenient. In Milan there's even a Chinatown.

  • Why is it so hard to understand that U.S. and Vietnamese people like each other?. We fought to defend our ally we failed but through combat the earned our respect and us theirs, on of my best friends is someone I got into a brutal fight with this is a well documented phenomenon among us guys.

  • I live in Italy and they dislike the Chinese first because local businesses started sending their clothing to be fabricated in cheaper labor China, and now they've built Chinese clothing factories bigger than US malls run like sweat shops, so they can sell the 'Made in Italy' label with fabrics made in China by Chinese in Italy. There are Chinese stores all over the place selling those items, and they are buying up cafes, opening restaurants pretending often to be Japanese… we are being invade by China right now which has killed so many local cottage industries. I live in a small town of around 5000, where we have 1 Chinese restaurant, 1Chinese clothing store and 3 cafes run by Chinese, where 10 years ago there were none… so it has oozed far out of the cities into what used to be completely rural Italian businesses. While people here aren't mean about it and I don't see any outright hatred, it still makes them feel like their lives are being invaded by a people who they know aren't here to integrate, but rather to just glean money off of the EU 'Austerity' ridden Italians.

  • whisperingsage says:

    when you talk about "countries" hating or liking, the people are different from the governments. The People don't often control their leaders, and suffer under them. I like the people of China and your videos have increased my interest and respect. But at the same time, I know the leaders are doing their own thing, and our leader is doing what he can to make deals with other leaders to benefit us both as countries.

  • I have huge respect to the long Chinese history and rich culture but I apsolutely hate the People's republic of China because it is an evil state, Taiwan is the real China.

  • Oh buddy! That intro is so smooth and sweet! 10/10 I have to sub for that, oh my god that was absolutely amazing!

  • People might have interpreted that question differently some people might have thought you were talking about the people and some people might have thought you were talking about the government or the country

  • Nick Covillon says:

    The problem lies when people starting hating the people rather than the government and take it out on innocent people.

  • This is the 2nd video where I see clips of Binghamton. Why the hell did you guys come to my little town? I know C-Milk's family lives in New York, but isn't it Rochester or something like that? You didn't come just to see Tim Tebow did ya? Lol… Too bad that I only subscribed a couple months ago. It would have been fun to meet your family. Vivy would absolutely hate our Chinese food.

  • I have no problem with Chinese people, I just dislike China for its government. You didn’t make that distinction when talking about the polls?

  • Yeah, South Korea loved me. The elderly would ask me to sit with them allot. In China however, I just get allot of mean looks… I know why I came here but I'm thinking I may have made a mistake in doing so.. Luckily it's younger generation is more friendly and open minded. But with the mass censorship and crack down on outside information I really wonder how long that will last… Without VPN's, the younger generation would hate me as well.

  • Giannis Mallios says:

    I am greek and when i see this that China and Usa are enemies,i be crazy.What the fuck?Americans and chineses were allies to the world war 2.

  • Eek! What Vivi say is true we all are being brain washed by the news. My time was the Russians follow in the 80s and 90s with South Korea attending tech fairs and making US knock offs. Now its the Chinese. Whats next? India? Vietnam?

  • Tomas Horejsi says:

    We in Europe just do not like communists. And China is a communist country. We had enough of communism in Europe.

  • Little Miss Elaine 伊莲 says:

    I have no knowledge of history except that people don’t do female China in countryhumans

  • Mexicans hate taking in immigrants yet get mad when we don't want to take in millions after already taking in millions upon Millions..

  • As a Russian, I had no idea we liked China that much. I guess we have a lot of trade with them, but who doesn't? There is also an enormous amount of Chinese tourists here but I can't say I have like super positive emotions about them lol….

  • hmmm….hope you enjoyed Taipei Taiwan while talking about Chinese people in mainland China or you also talked about Taiwanese as Chinese? Don't think you respect your wife much

  • Surely not all Chineses are socialists & communists. (But) Most of Chineses should stop instigating communism🇨🇳 & socialism🇨🇳 and should never listen to or trust their PRC🇨🇳 government. There are (several) Chineses who support 'Nationalist China🇹🇼' or 'Republic of China🇹🇼' (including 'defectors(🇨🇳->🇹🇼)') and who want the alliance with the USA🇺🇸( as geopolitics). So not all Chineses (even from mainland China, island Taiwan) hate America🇺🇸. (But) Maybe most of commie Chineses🇨🇳 hate (capitalist) America🇺🇸. *USA🇺🇸 🤝 ROC(=CHN)🇹🇼.

  • In Russia I've met one italian guy and he told me that Chinese in Italy they buy everything from suvenirs to houses and that was the reason of his dislike to China… I think it's stupid reason…

  • Justin Donaton says:

    I traveled the world with the military and after retirement, I have never met any rude people. I'm Korean American and rudeness I felt as the personal experience was in the united states, the '80s, and '90s, I was only minority in my school, so I
    got the mouthful from the Americans than went to the Korean church I got a mouthful from the Koreans because I didn't speak korean. But I'm sure it is like most places. Now I'm friends with all. The world doesn't change you, you let it change you. I see all my friends no matter what background there from as FRIEND

  • Alexey Nikolaev says:

    Canadians according to the graph, 48% percent are unfavourable. It's probably rising due to us arrest the Ms Huawei and China arresting Canadians in retaliation. I was surprised to see that Canada is below great Britain at 43% when it comes to liking the U.S. Great Britain is very low on the list. Canada is the U.S's neighbour.

  • Honestly Chinese should have a positive opinion of the United States since they get so much money from the United States.

  • ディアスジェレミー says:

    As an American, I like the Chinese, just like every other race and affiliation, however I don't like their government.
    Just hope an all out war won't break out, especially the diplomacy talks with North Korea.
    Who else agrees?

  • James Bilotta says:


    A random dude just smashing his head on the pavement, clearly premeditated as he brought a carboard box to kneel on, just popping up bashing his head religiously, bahaha I'm dying with laighter over here.

    That's my boy!!

  • I think many people from southeast asian countries doesn’t like china, surely from mainland chinese tourist and the government. Especially of the sea disputed happening ryt now and im one of the people that hate schina

  • I freaking hate mainland china, they are bullying smaller countries.. I hope their government leaders all suffer

  • Western media is even more dumb. In China though we always say positive things about the government, we don’t denigrate other countries.

  • There is no hate
    there is only this:

    IT's ImpeRativE that no EurAsian challenger emerges capable of dominating EurAsia and thus of also challenging america
    (Zbignew Brzezinski)
    Why ? and How ?
