Do Chinese like it if when you compare China with Japan that you think China is the best?
China is not Japan. Both have good sides and bad sides.
Stupid Americans call Filipinos a Chicks and call Thai a Jap ...... then .... they call Chinese gooks ..... just like calling a Russian a jew or calling French guy a Yankee .... or ... calling Abraham Lincoln a Confederate Soldier
No, they don't really care about that, they like it if you buy something from them or doing business that can give more money to them.
