lol...ur so funny...but ur not serious are u cuz i disagree...with the Chai Vang part a bit....not entirely, but if you have to put it that way then I'll have to disagree. Although many people know about that incident and characterizes Hmong people (men usually) as murderers....as some white people put it, "they are killers"--only knowing how to kill....would you still agree? Well, this was the case a few months ago (i believe)...it really hurted Hmong people's image....Hmong people are not the only killers in this world, I'm sure you know that, if they are then everyone else must be too....Look at the VA tech University shooting that recently occurred...many White people are outraged and the first thing they thought of was to Hate all other Korean people, since some said they couldn't tell the difference among the asians they said they'll hate all asians.....stupid huh? You can't characterize all korean people as mentally-crazy psycho killers now can you! Just like Hmong people.....Chai's actions are not characterized by all Hmong people....I really would hope Chai the best and wish there was true Just in this world.....sorry......anyways i'm off topic now....Hmong people... we are still Hmong even though we are traced back to being Chinese we will always be Hmong....that's what makes us Us.
I totally agree with you on this... It's ignorance that get the better them.
Back to the original subject,
I think these oral history are not really straight forward but may give clues and help us hypothesize where our ancestors came from.
