Yes, that is unfortunate.

Interesting article in the NYTimes about “ethnic theme parks” in China. Apparently, they provide an opportunity for the Han majority to see some of the traditional ways of life of some of China’s many ethnic minorities…  This was my favorite paragraph:

The most famous park, the Nationalities Park in Beijing, is a combination of museum and fairground. Ethnic workers from across China dress up in their native costumes for mostly Han tourists. (For a while, English signs there read “Racist Park,” an unfortunate translation of the Chinese name.)
