Why people are upset
Hong Kong people should be more understanding toward people who may not have grown up in urban areas.
Many of the mainlanders that come to HK have been living in smaller towns. This is probably the case as some are very well educated but a few incidents have been blown out of proportion.
Another major complaint that HK people have is that mainland women who have HK husbands are coming to give birth to their children in HK. There is no crime with this as with having a parent who is from HK the child is automatically eligible for all benefits that come with being a HK citizen.
It may be good if the pure hon It is understandable that some HK residents are upset that by mainlanders pumping money into the HK economy that prices have been rising. The prices of housing is one of the highest in the world and to be a middle class person living in HK you need to be earning a substantial amount of money.
There are ways to change these attitudes.
The ways that we can change the attitudes of people include educating them more on the customs and the way that things work in HK if people treat HK with the respect that it deserves that would also make the locals more excepting of the mainlanders. Another things that locals need to understand is that HK is a part of China and that it is going to return back to China after being a special administrative region for 50 years.
