I must get one of those Geronimo T-shirts.
IMO self-immolation under the circumstances serves as a proxy for lynching.

The line I have seen dozens of times from Chinese people is that Tibetans
are China's Apaches―a backwards, uncivilized, tribal race that has benefited
immeasurably by being educated and given the benefits of technology. The
Tibetans who accept civilization gracefully are like the "good" Apache
Cochise, and those who want to keep Tibetans a bunch of uncouth savages are
like the "bad" Apache Geronimo (whose image now appears on T-shirts and
coffee mugs with the slogan "fighting terrorism since 1492").
