That's right, Chinese don't talk about war, but always talk about the economy. You don't see China stuck in Iraq or Afghanistan.

China grants special rights to Uyghurs and Tibetans i.e. education preferences, religious rights etc , which she does not grant to the majority Chinese Hans.

China should grant equal rights to the Hans.

How come the Tibetan and Uyghur dissidents in San Francisco and Berkeley said that they are treated as second class citizens in China and that the tibetans want the Dalia Lama back.

Firstly, none of these exile leaders really care about their own people. They only want political power. Discrediting the current China government would only help them score political points with the rest of the world.

You need to know that the minorities are being treated with tender care by the China government.

The China government does not want to be accused of discriminating and accommodate these minorities by giving them special rights and privileges that other Chinese citizen are devoid of.

During the Urumqi the majority ethnic Han were all wondering why the Uyghurs rioted when they are given so much in e.ucation, religion etc/

And historically, the Uyghurs are not even natives of Xinjiang. They are immigrants from Turkey.

The real native people of Xinjiang were the Xiongnus.They were defeated by Han China in 60BC. Thus the Hans ruled Xinjiang eversince.

The Uyghurs are getting a very good deal in china even they are not real natives of Xinjiang.

Actually according to a post from a Chinese person in Beijing last year, they as a Chinese person can own a picture of the Dalai Lama; a Tibetan in Tibet definitely cannot own one (or if it gets found, they're in trouble).

Also, it's not true that only non-Han are exempt from One Child; many Han are exempt, like rural families, families where both parents are a single child, etc.

But any special privilege creates resentment; it's a matter of whether you trust that the government had a good reason for the special privilege or not. Like rural families, obviously they need more kids to work outside, etc.

Yes, the Han Chinese have been in Xinjiang since the Han dynasty over 2000 years ago. The Uyghurs actually came to Xinjiang from what is now Mongolia 1200 years ago during the Tang dynasty. So, they're late-comers in Xinjiang, long after Han people.

And yes, the Turkish people originated from the Altai Mountains in northern Xinjiang / Mongolia. China is the point of origin of many of the world's people--Japanese, Koreans, Vietnamese, Thais, Hungarians, etc.

You mean those Tibetan and Uyghur dissidents who are on the payroll of U.S. NED? And crying won't bring Hitler back.

The DaLIE Lama to return to Tibet to do what? Bring back the 14th century, slave-owning, feudal Theocracy in Old Tibet? He's going to be gone soon, in exile.

As for second class citizens, that would be the 35 % Americans who are of non-European descent, like the Chinese in your city.

It's illegal to display a photo of Hitler or show Nazi paraphernalia in Germany, France, Poland, and many European countries. There are historical reasons for this, say prevention of resurgence of Fascism in Europe, etc.

Chinese rumor is that South American country sent DNA sample to China for cloning purposes. Only after DNA successfully replicated and sent back to South America country, did Chinese learn that the DNA sample was that of Adolph Hitler! Now fear that Hitler clone may grow up and start another Fourth Reich, and try to take over planet.
