From The Spectator:

… My time in a Chinese classroom didn’t instil much hope of an enlightened next generation, but there are a few signs that things might be starting to change. Chinese teenage boys idolise the African-American basketball star Kobe Bryant, for instance — posters of him festooned the dormitory walls.

A worthy sign of hope and enlightenment indeed. Remember, Kobe Bryant was only an accused rapist, not a convicted one.
