In China, white people can be rented.
For a day, a weekend, a week, up to even a month or two, Chinese companies are willing to pay high prices for fair-faced foreigners to join them as fake employees or business partners.
Some call it "White Guy Window Dressing." To others, it's known as the "White Guy in a Tie" events, "The Token White Guy Gig," or, simply, a "Face Job."
And it is, essentially, all about the age-old Chinese concept of face. To have a few foreigners hanging around means a company has prestige, money and the increasingly crucial connections -- real or not -- to businesses abroad.
"There is quite an elaborate fantasy world going on here where if everyone buys into it, it does not matter if it is the truth.
Maybe it's just me; but that sounds CRAZY! I mean good job for the white guy/gal I guess but still crazy! lol

That is crazy, but at least those faces are getting paid voluntarily. Too bad they dont want brown faces...We're beautiful too!
