The other day, an unknown blogger visited my blog and left some comments on my post:” England vs. Germany: A Karma?” .
The following is his comments:
You’d better read Sharon Stone’s whole message first:
“Well you know it was very interesting because at first, you know, I amnot happy about the ways the Chinese were treating the Tibetans becauseI don’t think anyone should be unkind to anyone else. And so I havebeen very concerned about how to think and what to do about thatbecause I don’t like that. And I had been this, you know, concernedabout, oh how should we deal with the O_lympics because they are notbeing nice to the D a l a i L a m a, who is a good friend of mine.
And all these earthquake and stuff happened and I thought: Is thatkarma, when you are not nice that bad things happen to you? And then Igot a letter, from the Tibetan Foundation that they want to go and behelpful. And that made me cry. And they ask me if I would write a quoteabout that and I said,“I would.”And it was a big lesson to me, thatsome times you have to learn to put your head down and be of serviceeven to people who are not nice to you. And that’s a big lesson forme…”
The buddy encountered some difficulties putting his/her comments in my blog. So did I when trying to post my reply to her/him.
First, I really appreciate the buddy’s comments and his/her idea,to which I both agree and disagree. The following is my reply:
“Hi, the unknown buddy, thanks for your comments here. Thanks for sharing some backgrounds about it. Basically I agree to her idea that we should be nice to others. However, I do not agree to
her farfetched assumptions about Tibet and Tibetans. How much does she know about Tibet and Tibetans? Maybe those who Sharon Stone knows are socalled”elites”or “Nobles” among Tibetans, but how much does she know about the life of common Tibetan folks? What I’ve learned is poor and miserable slaves, and human-skin drums…It seems to have become a fad among those western celebrities to vilifying China or Chinese, however limited they know about China and Chinese people, otherwise they would be deemed innocent by their western peers. I do hope they make their comments after seeing the whole picture.
Thanks for your attention.”
