Growing tensions between Hong Kongers and people from Mainland China, along with discontent with the current government in Hong Kong make me wonder what the future of this city will be. What are your thoughts?

I don't think the Chinese central government wants to control everything, but some of the events that are taking place in Hong Kong do alarm them. People waving colonial flags, protesting the presence of people from the Mainland, and blaming China for a decline in the city are making the central government upset. 

It only makes sense for people from the Mainland to seek a better life in Hong Kong, but that means that Hong Kongers will have to share what they have, and many of them don't want to do that.

Under technicality, Xianggang is independent from the rest of China, only using Chinese money. That is why in modern text books studying the former empires from the mainland list them as China and Xianggang as areas under an empire's former control. Although, I think the rising tension is more over how much of a limitation the PRC government can place on the technical independence of the Xianggang government.
