All the crows under the sun are black. (evil people are bad all over the world) 天下乌鸦一般黑

My little suggestion on this would be:

"Could be common that the crows under the sun are black"

The word "一般" encompasses the element of 'common'; literary, the word 'all' indicates that there is no other 'elements' are out of the subject (bad personality in this case).

A friend of mine suggests that 天下乌鸦一样黑 would be the nearest exact meaning to "All the crows under the sun are black"

一样 could be interpreted as 'the same in every single unit' => meaning 'ALL' of them is the same.

Dear All

Please do not get upset by the following link. Be warned that the website is entitled Asian Jokes .

It was passed onto me by someone in Asia. I did not write any of the jokes nor am I publishing them openly. There appears to be some people in this forum who have a sense of humour to which these jokes may appeal.

Do not open the link if you do not want to read these type of jokes.
