So the World Bank has refused China a US$40 million loan to settle Han Chinese farmers in western China.

Why is it when it comes to making Europe and the US multi-ethnic, the liberal politicians wax poetically about 'multi-culturalism' and 'pluralism', but in western China they call it 'cultural genocide'?

I guess what's sauce for the Balkan goose is not sauce for the Peking duck.
