What about Hong Konger call Mainlander Ah Chan, Dai Chuen Zhai, Northern Aunt, Uncle etc ?
Ah Chan name come from Chow Yun Fatt TVB serial Man In The Net(Ken Cheng could have watch this drama) ,Dai Chuen Zhai mean mainland robber ,Northern Aunt mean Chinese prostitute etc .

楚留香笑道：“你口气倒真不小。” “小”字出口，他已箭一般向阴姬冲了过去。他知道自己唯一能胜过对方之处，就是个“快”字。所以他尽量利用 这“快”字，只要他能抢得一刹那间的先机，他就或许还有战胜的希望。他出手实在快，快如急风，快如闪电。谁 知他刚一出手，阴姬的手掌一挥，就立刻有一股奇异的力量阻住了他的去路，这股力量如浪潮初起，澎湃不绝。楚 留香莫说根本无法抢得先机，根本就近不了她的身。
I like the most recent comment from that video, where the guy said He don't think the english subtitle is accurate lol.
I'm not mandarin literate so yeah I'll be completely dumbfounded too if there were no english subtitle.
RE: Confucius descent. The implication of this connection is that the professor has some sort of 'extra' authority because he is descended from a smart/wise chap? Cognitive and/or stirling personality traits are concretely inheritable? Given, in a extremely hypothetical case, that Mr Prof was blessed with traits of the elite literati of imperial China, one would think his arguments would be a tad more subtle and intelligent. Which was obviously not the case.
The main drive of his argument is based on personal - explicitly biased - views. To reduce to name-calling just totally discredits his own contention. The latter tactic only reflects how ignorant and extremely unknowledgeable he is. If he truly believed his own point, he would make an effort to build a convincing argument. At least it shows you care for your own view. My conclusion is that he really doesn't care nor believes in his own view. The only thing that delights him seems his own voice.
But yeah, being a person of authority doesn't necessarily demonstrate good judgement nor maturity. Linus Pauling (double Nobel laureate) explicitly slandered Dan Shechtman (winner of 2011 Nobel prize for Chemistry) for his work with quasicrystals. Once again, name-calling was used as an argumentative vice.
The really sad thing: attaining substantial academic achievement doesn't seem to improve argumentative skills nor maturity for some individiuals.
