Buddhadharma : Fall 2010
11 FALL 2 01 0 buddhadharma: the practitioner’s quarterly I’m writing in response to “Tibet House U.S .,” by Andrea Miller in the Spring 2010 issue of Buddhadhar ma. I don’t wish to minimize in any way the good works described in that article. However, she quotes Ganden Thurman as saying, “No one wants to be anti-China—that’s racist.” I am puzzled as to why being anti-China in regards to making one’s economic (and even political) choices is “racist.” China is a country of many ethnici- ties and even ethnic Chinese do not constitute a “race” in any biological sense (if race can even be sustained as a biological construct). Thus to be “anti- China” in my mind is directly a political response to the Chinese government, not the people of China, and is in reference to its acts as an authoritarian govern- ment that has murdered its own citizens (Tiananmen Square, repression in Tibet) for more than fifty years. It is our obliga- tion to make thoughtful economic and, for what they’re worth, political choices that are not misinterpreted as support for a non-democratic political regime that regularly violates most nations’ definitions of basic human rights. I am sensitive to the fact that Tibet House does not want to offend or be perceived as anti-China. But taking a stand based on human rights and against govern- ment violence is hardly “racist.” Michael Aceto Greenville, North Carolina kimscAFuro “ This valuable account of firsthand experience amidst some of the greatest lamas of the century is important for Western Dharma students.” — Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche Meeting and triumphing over life’s challenges with humor and savv y confidence firsthand experience amidst some of the greatest lamas of the century is important for Western — Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche MARCIA DECHEN WANGMO ofa OGINI Experience through Mistakes OONFESSIONS YPSY ◆ ◆� ◆ ◆ ◆� ◆ Y G Random House | w ww.rangjung.com ◆
