Violent scenes are still going in Honiara, the capital city of Solomon Islands. A protest on the result of the nation's general election turn into violence and riots broke out. Unluckily for the Chinese businessmen, their shops in the Chinatown were torn by looters and burned down. This is like the 1998 riots in Jakarta, Indonesia, where some Indonesian Chinese also had to lose their businesses because of looting, but the real reason which made the riots broke out was actually politics. This is an interesting coincident, because those who see opportunities to get free stuffs from a shop during a riot actually occur in many countries. It is not necessary that those people don't like this particular race or something, but it is purely a matter of taking an opportunity and perhaps feeling different (lower) socially & economically from the others make them think looting the riches is okay.
