Why don’t Hong Kongers think of themselves as Chinese? What’s wrong with being a Chinese for them?

but what does "Chinese" actually mean?

it sounds like this is a cultural issue

maybe they are happy they did not die like flies in the Great Leap Forward

maybe it is the fact that they are very wealthy

maybe the rule of law > government

connect the dots

Falsehood, Hong Kongers know they are Chinese, that's their race, political hate do not equal to hating your own race, only a moron will tell you they are not racially Chinese, you won't find one person in Hong Kong to tell you that. Hong Kongers can generally be very rude not only to outsiders but among themselves, I experience many rude treatment myself through my visits there even though i can speak cantonese and have no problem communicating, but didn't take it personally. There's a difference between political and cultural hate then racial hate, no one in Hong Kong will tell you they are not Chinese or their descendants do not come from China, they may not want to be part of the Chinese political process, but Chinese doesn't mean China, get that distinction right.

Mainland China's road system (including the road mapping) is also European-based. Hong kong based  ...

Progression is a universal system, nothing British or German about it.
