the embarrassment of Uygurs on the way to modernization. the following is my understanding why so riots happened in Xinjiang recently. Uygurs is facing great embarrassment on the way to modernization.....which is the most important reason why so riots happened in Xinjiang recently. One hand ,Uyghurs want to live a better and richer life( everyone wants soo) On the other hand ,they also want to keep their languages and traditional life style. however, Uyghurs two wishes are contradicting with each other. 1.Uyghurs can have ether modernization or their traditional life style(including their language), but they can not have two at the same time. 1.If one Uyghurs want a richer and better life, ,he has to accept modernation, He has to accept modern education in Mandarin first,because Uyghurs can not privde moder education, However once one Uyghurs accepts modern education, He would naturally give up thier traditional life style and gradually lose his uyghurs identity among the Han-dominant society. For example, Nigmati.Rihma, is one famous successful TV Uyghurs host of CCTV. His life style is completely modernzied and is competely differnent from Uyghurs in Xinjiang. http://p10.qhimg.com/t01e79e422c8dbdf95c.jpg 2. the biggest lesson for Chinese government is its giving-up education-in-madarin of Uyghurs youth. After 1980s, CCP government blindly accepted west' shitty advice and abolished mandatory mandarin education over Uyghurs youth. So, most of Uyghurs youth, who were born in 1980s and 1990s, were edcuated only in uyghurs. Since they can not speaking mandarin, they an not find decent job at all and is and marginlized by mandarin-dominant society.. 3. Who should be responsible to the margalzaiton of Uyghurs? first, it is most of Uyghurs themselve thaat rejects to accept mandarin-education and give up the chance to better jobs. in fact, although CPC government indeed abolished mandatory mandarin education over Uyghurs, CPC still encourange Uyghrur to accept mandarin ecudation with incentives and dedicated quotas. second,west Shitty advice and brainwash.... West medias and government always blah how moral and kind they are to stop CPC's mandatory mandarin education.... third... CPC's blind accepting west Shitty advice.
