I spent a semester at Guangxi University in Nanning. That area has a high concentration of ethnic minorities (non-Han Chinese). The govt makes a showy support of traditional festivals, but even I could tell the locals in rural areas had a dislike for their pseudo-autonomy, just like in Tibet. The 1-child policy among these folks is possibly met with resistence along ethnic lines. This area was also the home to some of the worst atrocities of the Cultural Revolution and you can bet those wounds never healed.
