    Milwaukee's Chinese Community Wants Yi Jianlian | TODAY'S TMJ4 - Milwaukee, Wisconsin News, Weather, Sports - WTMJ NBC | Local Sports

    It is obvious that Yi Jianlian is a big (no pun intended) time racist, and I think he should he stay in China!!!

    America has had a too long history of ignorant racism. People like Yi Yianlian shouldn't even be allowed work visas in the U.S..

    I kinda sympathize with Yi after reading that. I mean, who wouldn't want a better looking girlfriend? Although I suppose it is kinda a slap in the face of the Milwaukee Chinese community that they may not have produced a beauty worthy of Yi.

    Yi likely will have plenty of young Chinese groupies to chose from on the road when he visits all of these cities with so called big Chinese populations. I highly doubt he is going to have a problem in that category. LOL!!!

    Now I am envious of Yi. What seems like an eternity, and I still do not have any groupies. :(

    I say we make a match.com/eHarmony profile for the guy and get the ball rolling. I wonder If he's that worried about finding a good Chinese girl why can't he find one in China?

    He doesn't want to pay for expense of bringing her to the States and getting her a visa.

    If you got time to make a match.com profile for someone, don't waste it on a millionaire.

    My name is roscoe. I like long walks on moonlit beaches and breezy spring days. My favorite food is pretty much anything that contains meat. I try to shave 3 times a week, so hygiene is important to me, and I haven't gone bald yet, but because I am a planner, I've already started shaving my head so no one in my family is shocked when that happens.

    I'm looking for anyone who will put up with me, take care of me, and let me do whatever I want. Looks aren't important, because I spend more time staring at my computer screen than anything else, so I won't really notice if my lady is looking fine or just dressing casual. The ideal match for me would be someone who can get food stains out of my clothing, and isn't irritated by snoring.

    If you need any more info, PM me.

    Thanks for the article...I'd almost forgotten about Charlie Bell.

    He could be a great 'cheap' piece for the Celtics...I also think he'd be a great pickup for the Pistons. Go ahead and call me a homer...ball don't lie.

    racial profiling?

    It seems to me that looks come from the inside not the outside.

    That's beautiful...it brought tears to my eyes. I wish I had written something similar in my match profile when I was on there.

    Yao Ming married a lady from China.

    Yi has a better chance of finding a suitable mate from the selection in China.

    During the basketball season how much social time is the guy going to have? If he doesn't like the Chinese food in Milwaukee he will have enough money to hire his own personal cook who I am sure he can get fairly inexpensively if he brings the cook to the U.S. from China.

    And there is a complete selection on the link of Good Ole American Eateries. "When in Rome do as the Romans do".

    When I have lived overseas, I never ever ate American food, except a couple of times a McDonalds.

    I say the lawyers put in a special bonus in the contract paying him for said expenses, and free membership to all Chinese-American dating sites... [SIZE=-1]www.chineselovelinks.com/

    I'd be a lonely man if that's where I took my date.

    Its all a matter of who you like to date and what they like to do.

    My first wife and I spent most of our social time in the Hollywood Hills hanging out with people in the entertainment industry. She now lives in the Ozarks

    My second wife wouldn't be caught dead in the Hollywood Hills or the Ozarks. She lives in the Middle East.

    My first wife wouldn't be caught dead in the Middle East (excuse the expression).

    There are an awfully lot of British expatriate ladies and American ladies that hang out in the British pubs in Santa Monica, CA. I know that for a fact because I lived in Santa Monica for over 15 years and still hang out there occasionally.
