Black British tourists in China bombarded for photos

HOUNDED: Anjelo Disons

BLACK TOURISTS are hounded in China by locals amazed at their skin.

A group of black tourists have shared their experience of travelling in the country in a now viral video after stunned Chinese residents barraged them with picture requests.

In the clip posted by singer and songwriter Anjelo Disons, the group of black friends can be seen sitting on steps as dozens of Chinese people surround them, taking pictures on their mobile phones.

One Chinese man is even bold enough to approach the black traveller to sit beside him and place his hand on top of his to compare their skin colour and poses for a photo.

As he pans the camera round to show his audience, Disons says: “Look at this madness! So many people trying to take photos of us.”

In a second video, posted on his Twitter account, the artists says: “Me and my boys just be sitting here chilling, just sitting - and look at the attraction we've got."

He points the camera to a woman sitting next to him, and tells the camera: "I don't know this woman. I have never seen this woman before in my life. It's a bit mad.”

Curious onlookers can be seen taking photos and videos of the group, sitting beside them posing for selfies and simply pausing to stop and gaze at them.

The video has since gone viral, amassing nearly six million views in just a just a few days.

Disons joked that the level of attention the group received even had white British residents questioning if him and his friends are famous.

He added: “So many people are trying to take photos of us, and then we get white people considering whether or not we're famous. They're like, "Wait, maybe they're famous, maybe we haven't been to England for that long and we just don't who they are?"'
