Can't say for sure but I doubt its as open minded as Tdot. A good friend of mine was doing is CA internship at a big accounting firm in Calgary and he's often go out with clients, have dinner, get drunk, etc. He said that one of his colleagues, a very well educated Chinese guy, wasn't taken out by clients nearly as often as he was. I don't think its really a racism thing as much as it is cultural differences, maybe the Chinese guy was just a moron, but the jist of what my buddy said was that its a bit of an old boys club.

Don’t sweat the petty things, pet the sweaty things.
