Lessons in Chinese Citizenship

Inspired by Mountainrunner's Europe v. Asia post, lessons in Chinese citizenship... with rodents!


Good Red Rabbit, Bad White Rabbit


The bottom-right hand "bad" white rabbit is decked out like a gangsta rapper but standing outside a "pub" -- making him, I presume, a delightful fusion of American and British hooliganism.

Is it my imagination, or is the bottom-right 'red' rabbit standing in front of an Imperial Japanese flag?

Michael,

At first, I wondered the same thing.

The rabbit is supposed to be in front of an anime "action" sunburst. Compare with the "Yakuza" ad from the 2004 election. [1,2]
