Tibetan in tern of ethnicity and Chinese in term of nationality and legal status.

Same as Navajo in the US.

I would disagree with that.  Tibetans are the same race as Chinese, while Navajo are a different race than white americans.  Chinese and Tibetans have a longer history and culture shared with each other.  Actually Tibet conqeured china for a while.

It depends on which tibetans you ask.  If you ask those crazed, brainwashed, CIA funded "tibans" who live in India or US, they will say they hate China.  If you ask local tibetans who actually LIVE in tibet, they consider themselves part of China.

Hi all,

Thanks for answering my questions. Cna I ask if any of you are actually from tibet or are native tibetans?

I know that someone who has been brainwashed by the CCP would of course say ...


I met some native Tibetans in China but I didn't know they were Tibetan until they told me.  They are no different from other Chinese people and just live their lives normally.  Stop exoticizing them like westerners always do.  Tibetans are not a mystical race - they are not exempt from greed, materialism, or violence.  

The Tibetans I met just wanted to finish their education and get a good job and have fun with friends.  They also spoke perfect mandarin (mandarin is based on the Tibetan language BTW).   

In conclusion, Tibetans are just like you and me - so stop asking stupid questions about them!
