Ofcourse the word Chinese not only includes Mainland, it will also include Mainland, Taiwan, HK, Mac ...
However most folks will use  terms such as Taiwanese and Hong Konger bla blah and will never use Chinese.

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


“In their mind, Chinese people are less cultivated,” she says. “They don’t want to become a part of them. And internationally, Hong Kong has a higher status than Mainland people. So they don’t want to admit they’re Chinese. They just say, ‘I’m a Hong Konger.’”

At the same university, government studies professor Ma Ngok suggests a few reasons Hong Kongers might be feeling this way.

“Some people are worried that the Mainland tourists came and pushed local consumer prices up,” he says. “And for the lower class immigrants, some worried that they took away welfare, and were a burden on Hong Kong society. Of course, the most recent debate is about Mainland women, who come down to give birth in Hong Kong.”

Mainlanders always treat Hong Kongers as our close siblings

There might be misundersta ...


The problems lies with the upper and middle class clowns.
Many got to their wealth and high social position by attending the best schools and university in Hong Kong.
In the gweilo colonial days, many the best of best institutes were off limit to local Chinese. There was a way around it....become a Christian. Allow yourself to be baptised and sell your Motherland was the way forward for many of today's HK tycoons.

The out-going lame duck boss Sir Donald Tsang is a catholic, so are half the HK legislators.
Their loyalty seemingly leaned to their former colonial masters.
