Why? Because he "looks" Chinese? He was born in the United States, so that makes him an American citizen, end of story. This age old excuse of "You are Chinese because your ancestors were Chinese" is wearing extremely thin.
You are wrong again.
No one in the world except you think of Bruce Lee as "an American."
We are talking about public image here and not the color of your passport.
Meng might have more than one passport but do you hear anyone say she is not Chinese?
Similarly, anyone born in the States even today, and carried back to China by his/her parents -- is not regarded as an American citizen by Chinese immigration authorities, and a stamp reserved for foreigners would not be placed on the newborn's passport.
The child would have to await until he/she is 18 to decide whether he/she wants to be a Chinese or U.S. citizen.
A person's self-identity determines his public image.
From Day One no one had ever thought of Bruce Lee as anyone other than a full-blooded Chinese, or else he wouldn't have received the accolade and recognition that he eventually did -- because he struggled against discrimination in Hollywood, landing only lesser roles like that sidekick in "Green Hornet" to white actors.
To call Bruce Lee an "American" is much like calling a Red Indian an "American" -- the self-identity is simply not there.
Mind you that Native Americans are the only true Americans, the whites are nothing more than thieves and usurpers of the title "Americans." Funny thing is that the Native Americans weren't given U.S. citizenship until 1934 -- which meant the usurpers gave the original owners a piece of paper calling them the guests of their own country.
Here we go again ... don't you ever get tired of misquoting? I said, "Why do China's movies fail to gain traction in the US market?
Discussions like these are often led astray by brutish beasts like you, who like to call others "rubbish" but regard themselves "gems" which in fact are exactly the opposite.
Because, for the most part, they are nothing but rubbish. The only good Chinese movie that was liked, was "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon". The rest I wouldn't take my neighbour's dog to see, and she's blind and deaf." "
No one cares what a piece of trailer-park trash like you thinks of Bruce Lee or any other performer. From the point of fairness, the dog's collar rein should have been used to restrain you instead. Poor dog!
And once more you utter threats. That's three now. I figure that's enough for a ban-hammer.
A piece of white trash like you calling others "rubbish" doesn't deserve two hoots from any reasonable, objective observer.
You think of yourself as somebody here, but your own words betray your real identity and tell a different story -- you are indeed the sorriest piece of trailer-park trash this side of Downtown AnyCity.
