satsu--just so you know most of the tourists in VN ARE NOT quite exactly what you have in mind...it was a coincidence that you WERE there at the right time to see/meet the chinese's tourists th ...
You are perfectly right that I've met quite a few VN Chinese in overseas that no matter how old or how young, everyone claimed that they are Chinese (not VN). And most older generations can speak fluent Chinese, either Mandarin or Cantonese or Chaozhou Hua4, or 2 or 3 dialects in combination, besides able speak VN. Chinese people in overseas, particularly those older (not old) generations have strong roots with China for everything. It's shame that they all went to overseas many generations ago due to the poverty in China, but they deeply remembered as dragon person's traditions and long history as well as rich culture - and deeply in hearts, every Chinese people overseas feels pride no matter how hard and suffering when struggling with the cultural shock and been racially discriminated against badly. Racial profile, and injustice in the Western world, as I know in the US, have particularly applied to against "colored" people in general. Best examples: if Asians were killed by White, judges would let whites go (many cases. "let go" does not mean not punish, but a word to describe it's much lighter to be punished); if Whites were killed by Asians, minorities will be punished harder than ever.... I am not a person to make stories, and I am a very factual person, and I have seen, read, hear, and witnessed so many. I was a researcher, therefore I take pride for what I will have to say and to write - by facts and truth. If you go to US's Human Rights Advocate orgainizations from minorities, like African's, Hispanic, and Asian's, you will know. You just type keywords. Particularly go to www.aclu.org, go click the "racial issues" or "human Rights" on the right column of the main page, you will see all the petitions and wrtings from the ACLU to the State Department of US to protest that State Dept. intentionally withheld the report yearly for many years required by UN that each member country needs to submit the report of domestic racial issues.
Therefore, my conclusion for this latter part of the post is: the US has no right to intervine other countries' domestic affairs or whatsoever, it needs to examine itself first for its bloody history lasting till today.
However what I'm saying here is not that I try to defend for China's problems. China does have many problems. But China has never tried to attack the US first, instead of, it's US who always tried to attack China, or manipulate the whole world and UN to do so. I have heard many American friends saying to me by US's media's frequent attacks to China for everything that "is it CIA or FBI did this, any conspiracies?".
