Readers' Comments on "'Thank you Communist Party of China' By Bhuchung D. Sonam"

Its shame and racist on the part of some Chinese who come to Tibet just to degrade Tibetan culture. Its total racist and instead these tourist should learn Tibetan culture and not make a mockery of it.Tibet was an Independent nation before Chinese communist invaded in 1950s and we lost our country in 10th march 1959.

Hi Buchung,

What was your age when you fled Tibet? Because you do have some vivid memories.

Also I see that in your other article "Xi is no different", you quoted Mr. Samphel, secretary of the Department of Information and International Relations. Do we take his quote on Xi Ping as official statement or did he make that statement in his personal capacity?

If I am not wrong, you are still working for the CTA. So, are you allowed to make your own personal observations on Xi ping, our current and future Kalon Tripa's take on Xi Ping etc etc? Will that not be construed as official statement in some ways by Beijing.

Anyways, keep writing!

Subject: Chinese tourists playing dress-ups

Awesome piece.

The photograph of Chinese tourists in Lhasa playing dress-ups is particularly disturbing, although I have heard about it many times. In Australia, where I live, the nastiest white racists occasionally dress up as aboriginal people and put on black face make up for fancy dress parties and amateur comedy acts. More enlightened white people find that abhorrent and I hope more enlightened Chinese people will also turn their attention against this practice among Chinese tourists in Tibet.

When Tibet is free, I hope Chinese people will be able to visit and be able to see Tibetan culture for the treasure that it is.
