"Wikipedia joins a growing list of websites that cannot be accessed in China, which in recent years has tightened its grip on access to information online.

Thank goodness the Chinese dictators are throttling their citizens. Chinese people are Asians. Asians are smart.
If it were not for their government keeping them down, they’d own us.
This is how you deal with “hate” language and hurt feelings, ban everything. Facebook and Twitter execs should be applauding this move.
Everyone I know here has a vpn. I still use Wikipedia in my teaching.
