It's fashionable now to cram previously-forgotten minorities into every conversation, like some sort of verbal tic: if there's a mention of Edmund Hillary, the virtue signalers rush to bring up Tenzig Norgay, if Watson and Crick come up we must immediately hear of Rosalind Franklin, etc. Norgay, Franklin, and (many of) the rest of them are certainly worth knowing about in their context, but the effort to dilute all historical claims of great men is absurd. Norgay wasn't a New Zealander; bringing him up here is, at best, thoughtless.
It appeared as China.
Please fix this.
