About this Quote

This quote by Pearl S. Buck talks to the hypocrisy of many individuals in the West. We are willing to send out missionaries to China to spread our faiths, yet we hesitate to accept Chinese people into our own countries. This quote highlights the double standard that exists in our society, where we want to impose our beliefs on others, yet reluctant to accept them into our own communities. It also speaks to the bigotry and xenophobia that exists in lots of Western nations, where people are evaluated and discriminated against based upon their race or citizenship. This quote acts as a tip that we ought to be more open and accepting of people from different backgrounds, which we need to not be so fast to evaluate or exclude them.
