Claim: I think that the boxers did not deserve a bad rap, but it is very arguable.
Evidence 1: The opium war, the opium war, has harmed China very visibly and clearly. The Chinese were addicted to opium and were unable to leave this opium-smoking habit. At that moment, about 12 million people smoking opium. This has caused the loss of many cultures and above all, a lot of economic losses.
Evidence 2: Because the Chinese lost a lot of money in the opium trade, and the Chinese were low on crops/food as the population continued to grow. the population in China increased by 30 percent in 60 years.
Evidence 3：There were 20 million people who were killed because they (Taipei Rebellion) wanted to colonize and overtake the Qing dynasty.
Reasoning: This shows that they clearly did not deserve a bad rap, in my opinion, because they actually wanted peace for their own country.
