Rapping to defend Tibet's history

A new song criticises China's state media for its depiction of Tibet.

A group of Tibetan rappers are fighting back against what they call an unfair portrayal of their culture in a new drama broadcasted on Chinese state television. "Tibet's Secret" chronicles the history of Tibet during the 1930s and 1940s, before the Chinese communist takeover. The video for the song, "Respect", was uploaded and subsequently removed from the Chinese video-hosting site Youku.
