A good sign on Tibet issue
Civility can prevail between Tibetans and Han Chinese.
It didn’t seem that was possible just a few weeks ago. At university campuses across the U.S., students squared off into two distinct communities: those favoring greater independence for Tibetans and Chinese nationalists angry over anti-Chinese riots in Lhasa in mid-March.
On many campuses, tensions escalated into threats and witch hunts. The parents of one young Chinese woman at Duke University were forced to flee their home in Dalian, China, because of threats from people opposed to her daughter’s views.
But this week, there was a positive sign at Harvard University. On Monday night, a panel that included two Han Chinese and two Tibetans presided over a civil forum of 150 people.
