Not sure what to make of this. In JD's English class, the students are told to call America, "Star/Stripe" and Britain, "Riceland" - the flag looks like the Chinese character for rice (米). It seems that even writing the names of foreign countries is considered to be an unpatriotic act in modern China? I do wonder how the Chinese government would react if western students started referring to China as "Yellowstar"?
