New York Times reports on the growing racial tension between the Burman, whom make up the vast majority of Mynamar and the other minorities which live in Mynamar. A case in point is the Kachin people whom are predominantly christian and live in the foothills of the Himalayas, their language is banned in schools and there has been some religious persecution. Rival tensions are mounting but some ethnic groups are coming together to fight the Burman and may be arming themselves. At the same time though, Buddhist monks and others are striving for peace. I'd be fearful that things could get nasty very quickly and then spill over but it wouldnt be covered by the worlds media.
