That still does not address the fact that Tibet has travel restrictions in place for western media. China is subsidizing non-locals to move, do business and live there. They are not assimilating they are being forced upon the local populace.

Abortion is killing which is against the 10 commandments. Open your eyes and don't be a great pretender.
I see that you cannot answer the very simple questions I posed to you regarding God's commandments.

Until you do, your remain like Elias, a crackpot.

oh amazinglong novel... I said "there are" ... I did not generalize...I thought you have several master degrees, while I don't have none..
I almost feel sad for you.

This is actually what you wrote:
"They're not doing any harm are they?"

The contraction you used is a generalization because it is not specific. Further, your question was addressed with examples of people who populate dating sites and cause trouble.

Finally, your attempt to insult is laughable since you bungled it with yet another grammatical error. Educated folks would have written, "I thought you have several master degrees, while I don't have any."

The sound you hear is laughter at your continued use of misplaced arrogance.

I never said Chinese men marrying Black women is a bad thing. I was just stating that China will experience a new cultural shift when these interracial couples go move to China to live permanently. And those that remain in African countries permanently, the Chinese cultural influence will grow, and possibly a new Market-Dominant Minority will be formed consisting of Afro-asians.
I didnt mean to imply.... you said it was a bad thing

"Recently, the New York Times reported on the Oglala Sioux tribe’s federal lawsuit against liquor dealers in Whiteclay, Nebraska, a town standing a few hundred yards from the boundaries of the Pine Ridge reservation and the South Dakota state line. Merchants there sell an average of 13,000 cans of beer and malt liquor a day, mostly to Indians, who are not allowed to drink on the reservation. At Pine Ridge, four in five families have someone with a drinking problem, and fetal alcohol syndrome or fetal alcohol spectrum disorder afflicts one in four babies.

Somber as it is, the New York Times story paints a familiar picture of life on the nation’s Indian reservations. Pine Ridge and others are among the poorest places in the United States, with health indicators suggestive of Third World nations. It’s easy to conclude that for Native Americans, already burdened by a history of loss, the future might be even worse.
In this context, acclaimed novelist David Treuer’s Rez Life stands as a revelatory portrait of Indians in modern America. Treuer doesn’t shy away from somber realities; indeed, his own life has been touched by them. An Ojibwe Indian from Leech Lake Reservation in northern Minnesota, the son of an Austrian Jew (and Holocaust survivor) and Indian tribal court judge, he opens his book with the suicide death of his grandfather, a veteran of D-Day and the Battle of the Bulge. Along the way he describes the appalling living conditions on numerous reservations

At a time when there’s a spotlight on America’s richest 1%, a look at the country’s 310 Indian reservations–where many of America’s poorest 1% live–can be more enlightening. To explain the poverty of the reservations, people usually point to alcoholism, corruption or school-dropout rates, not to mention the long distances to jobs and the dusty undeveloped land that doesn’t seem good for growing much. But those are just symptoms. Prosperity is built on property rights, and reservations often have neither. They’re a demonstration of what happens when property rights are weak or non-existent.

The vast majority of land on reservations is held communally. That means residents can’t get clear title to the land where their home sits, one reason for the abundance of mobile homes on reservations. This makes it hard for Native Americans to establish credit and borrow money to improve their homes because they can’t use the land as collateral–and investing in something you don’t own makes little sense, anyway.

This leads to what economists call the tragedy of the commons: If everyone owns the land, no one does. So the result is substandard housing and the barren, rundown look that comes from a lack of investment, overuse and environmental degradation. It’s a look that’s common worldwide, wherever secure property rights are lacking—much of Africa and South America, inner city housing projects and rent-controlled apartment buildings in the U.S., Indian reservations.

Economy of Tibe

The economy of Tibet is dominated by subsistence agriculture. Due to limited arable land, livestock raising is the primary occupation mainly on the Tibetan Plateau, among them are sheep, cattle, goats, camels, yaks, donkeys and horses. The main crops grown are barley, wheat, buckwheat, rye, potatoes, oats, rapeseeds, cotton and assorted fruits and vegetables. In recent years the economy has begun evolving into a multiple structure with agriculture and tertiary industry developing side by side.
and sources

Development of GDP
Year GDP in Bill.Yuan
1994 5
2000 12
2004 20
2006 29

Tibet's GDP in 2008 was 39.6 billion yuan.[2] The Chinese government says that it exempts Tibet from all taxation and provides 90% of Tibet's government expenditure. Critics say that the central government in Beijing are stripping Tibetan resources and neglecting the welfare of Tibetan people.[3]

According to the Chairman of the Tibet Autonomous Region, Qiangba Puncog, Tibet's economy has grown on average 12% per year from 2000 to 2006. The per capita GDP reached 10,000 RMB in 2006 for the first time in Tibet's history.[4]

In the first six months of 2008, economic growth in Tibet was halved after the Lhasa riots led to a slump in tourism, consumption and output. The region’s economy expanded 7.4 percent in the period from 2007, down from 14.7 percent in the year-earlier period.[5]

[edit]Chinese development efforts
From January 18–20, 2010 a national conference on Tibet and areas inhabited by Tibetans in Sichuan, Yunnan, Gansu and Qinghai was held in China and a substantial plan to improve development of the areas was announced. The conference was attended by CPC Politburo Standing Committee members: Hu Jintao, Wu Bangguo, Wen Jiabao, Jia Qinglin, Li Changchun, Xi Jinping, Li Keqiang, He Guoqiang and Zhou Yongkang signaling the commitment of senior Chinese leaders to development of Tibet and ethnic Tibetan areas.

The plan calls for improvement of rural Tibetan income to national standards by 2020 and free education for all rural Tibetan children. The Chinese government has invested 310 billion yuan (about 45.6 billion U.S. dollars) in Tibet since 2001. "Tibet's GDP was expected to reach 43.7 billion yuan in 2009, up 170 percent from that in 2000 and posting an annual growth of 12.3 percent over the past nine years."[6] Outside observers credited increased interest in Tibet to concern over Tibetan nationalism which resulted in ethnic unrest in 2008.[7]

[edit]Industry
Many factories have been established in the Tibet Autonomous Region since 1959, but industrial development has had a tortuous history.

The government initially tried to follow the industrial structure and development plans of other regions, while ignoring the actual situation in the TAR (scarcity of fuel, high transport costs, inexperienced local labour, etc.).

There was no modern industry or infrastructure before the 1950s and people's life-styles and work habits were very different from those of industrial societies. Many plants rapidly became financially unprofitable and a drain on the government. The value of industrial output of state entreprises first rose to 141.7 million yuan in 1960, and fell to 11.2 million yuan in 1968.[8]

Crash frees cats from cooking pot

Around 600 cats stuffed into wooden crates and destined for dinner plates in southern China have been rescued after a truck crash.

Volunteers hauled the felines from the lorry on Monday after the accident in the central city of Changsha

Many of the cats, which were white and plump, escaped or died after being left out in the cold for more than 24 hours.

Mr Xu says the cats were "clearly" due to be served as food in southern China.

"It was easy to tell they were meant to be eaten, from looking at the crates" he told AFP.

"When I arrived, the truck was piled high with more than 50 crates.

"The cats had travelled for days, without water or food, and the smell was dreadful."
The cats were "said to be heading to restaurants in Guangdong" province in the south, the state-run China Daily reported.

The cat rescue is not the first of its kind in China.

A convoy of trucks carrying some 500 dogs to be sold as meat was stopped by activists on a highway in Beijing in 2011 and the animals rescued.

Cats are not commonly eaten in most parts of China but restaurants, particularly in the south, continue to serve the animal as food.

The country does not have any laws to protect non-endangered animals.

I am not certain why you keep posting about the negatives involved with Native American reservation life. I have already admitted that their land is not coveted and many suffer needlessly. They are not forced to live on reservations. Many choose to do so and alcoholism is a factor is their unhappiness. You can hardly fault a vendor for setting up shop nearby. Casinos are built to do the same thing - capitalize on those who wish to spend money on vices.

You seem hellbent on exposing something that is well known here. On the other hand, the western media is not allowed to visit Tibet and see how things really are.

Why do contemporary Chinese history books omit the Great Leap Forward's massacre of millions of Chinese? American history books teach how abusive early Americans were to Natives. Why can't China do the same with their violent past?
