2600 Block Ocean Avenue


San Francisco has a lot of immigrant and displaced Chinese residents. Many are Buddhist, many are actually from Tibet, and many just don't like the PRC. Tibet has been occupied since the 1950's. Even the Dalai Lama is in exile. Apparently the struggle goes on... via backyard graffiti slogans.

Chinese government are ruthless, thank goodness they aren't the superpower of this world.

@shattered: except they own most of the debt in the united states, thus technically owning the only "superpower" left in the world.

to call them ruthless is no different than my country our your country, because all nations have their sins. i don't like communism, but at the same time, i can't deny they're strength... albeit one based on fear and repression.

poor tibet, but then again... poor puerto rico, poor virgin islands, poor samoa, poor swains island, poor northern-ireland, poor kosovo, and so on.

it'll be interesting to see how china develops in this new millennium.
