    This indicates the arrogance of the Han Chinese wherein they totally ignore the concerns of the ethnic minorities and is merely interested in creating the myth of Chinese one race theory by the usual historical intimidation and humiliation and deprivation for those who resist.

    Unless China reassesses its strategy, unrest will continue to brew.

    The total creulty recently displayed in Sichuan indicates that the resentment is spreading closer to the real Han country beyond the non assimilated areas.

    The most serious challenge to China’s ethnic policies comes from Tibetans and Uyghurs. In general, language, religion, geopolitics and the late integration with China all play a part in their political separatist tendency. Most of the 55 ethnic minorities are not proficient in their own ethnic language. Even the most populous ethnic groups, such as the Zhuang, Manchus, Hui and Mongolians, use Mandarin. Most of them have been integrated into China for centuries and are therefore highly sinicised.

    Thus, it is a polite way of stating that others have become Hans and have forgotten their singular identity.

    The paper written by a Han professor from UK and very classical Han in approach also most tangentially indicates that the Tibetans and Uighurs are resisting Hanisation or Sinicization.
