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 .

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.
