This thread urges people to share and post using the hashtag #Africans_in_China to "prevent any more females from being deceived". It was further reposted by another user saying that sharing the hashtag means "saving a Chinese female". This thread seems to reference the interracial relations between African men and Chinese women, thus indicating removing Africans from China would "save" Chinese females. The circulation of the hashtag indicates that this is not an unusual sentiment amongst Chinese online platforms.
