    Are Taiwanese racially and ethnically the same as Chinese? I just saw where they only had 400 cases and 6 deaths. Their baseball league has started playing with mannequins and cardboard cutouts instead of fans.

    Not my point, you just have to be very careful when you identify a class of people as "defective"

    If being classed as defective would help bring about a vaccine that would save my life then go ahead and class me.

    Well. Races are different. I am not sure why we deny evolutionary science to appease people’s feelings.

    taiwan are the same as chinese. when the comunists took over, they normal non-commies got backed and backed and backed down until the anti-commies only had taiwan. they are the "republic of china" as opposed to the "peoples republic of china" and believe themselves to be the real historical china. unlike the rest of the country which was subject to a great leap forward and cutlural revolution, they treasure their relics and history and shit. they are the real china. mainland china has been destroyed and re-built as a soviet style communist shithole.

    hong kong and taiwan are both spectacular and represent what could have happened to the chinese people if they could have avoided communism.

    in fact when liberals always model the ideal society after denmar, i say look at taiwan. its a magnificent free democracy.

    Here is a fun fact.

    I was in the air, with an Admiral, en route Taipei when the Taiwanese learned of us throwing them under the bus. Coming in to land we commented on all the manned AAW guns and dug in soldiers. They sent us down to the end of the terminal, kept us on ice for hours. We finally got off the plane, had to walk through a 200 - 300 yard gauntlet of soldiers with weapons,into basically a shed. I told the Admiral they were guarding us, he said they were protecting us. About dusk they let in the helo that was taking us out to the ship that we were going to ride pick us up.

    I was the staff communications guy, and upon reaching the ship we were told to place a secure call to CINCPAC (big time, in charge of the entire Pacific) for a debrief. Thank God the ships secure comes came right up and the call went through.

    China is a big country. I'm sure there are ethnic variations between some of them. Like maybe Mongolians being different from Cantonese or something. To us they are all slant eyed yellow people but to each other they probably know the difference. Like the people of Western Europe are white people and the slavs of Eastern Europe are also white but you can tell if somebody has slavic facial features.
