US culture is derived from the 'mixing pot' of all nations, China included.

I'll answer it in this way:  In Sweden it is difficult to find a Chinese restaurant that doesn't do lunch buffe containing japanese and thailand dishes.  Chinese culture has very little penetration in society here. Some might have visited China and enjoyed their stay. Most will know superficial things like the "great wall" etc. Some may know there is something as a chinese new year. Most will not be able to name a single Chinese song, chinese movie , author (sorry Mo Yan just because you get a swedish prize doesn't mean anybody cares) or philisopher. A handful of people might know a little chinese history extending beyond the opium war and Mao. And so on.

Ladies and gentlemen,

Please keep the personal attacks and snide comments out of the debate. It's unwarranted and lowers the quality of the debate.  Please consider others before you attack each other.
