Lou, the Black Chinese girl, in this American Idol-esque competition has been the subject of national scrutiny regarding her complexion. People have written that she is not Chineses and needs to get out of China. China is not the melting pot that some places in America are. Although they have over 50 different ethnic group, the gene pool there is primarily Han.
It has been a shocking ordeal for someone who says she always considered herself just like every other Chinese girl."Sometimes people on the street would ask me, 'Why do you speak Chinese so well?' I'd just say, 'Because I'm Chinese!'" Lou said.
