Just temporary?
Denial, according the psychoanalysts, is one of the most primary mechanisms of defense. It consists in the attitude of denying or minimizing obvious facts of reality with which the individual can´t  cope or whose irresponsibility is unable to meet.

And I agree.

Without Chinese US would never have the railway system and without Chinese workers working for US  ...

And in this century that is what happening in China with the mega constructions in the whole country.
Cheap labor, exploiting people, also under age workers, same as factories.

You did well going to USA to live and make a good future

But I suggest you don´t bite hand that feeds you.

Please explain what "foundation" China built that made the USA what it is today?  The USA is a constitutional democratic republic founded by British colonists who rebelled against the monarchy. I could be wrong, but I don't believe any Chinese were present at the signing of the Declaration of Independence or the drafting of the Constitution. The United States became the country that is today on the backs of A!L immigrants who came to the USA in search of a better life, free from persecution or oppression. They came because America was considered the land of opportunity, where one could start over again. Chinese citizens came on their own volition to build the railroad. The work was hard and dangerous, but no one forced them to come. After the railroads were constructed, (if they survived) some stayed and became citizens, others returned to China.  Building infrastructure is not the same as building the foundation of a country. Based on your premise, all foreigners should have a say in Chinese affairs. After all, if it weren't for foreign investment (after China was "opened" during the 70's) China would not have been able to develop at the same break neck speed. There would be no middle class.

"American history had always tried to deny the fact that Chinese, Irish slaves, and Africa slaves that built America from the ground up."
Hmoonshine:- The Irish were not slaves in America. At the time, they went there for a better life . Also many Irish left their native land because of the famin . They were more like slaves in their native Ireland under the rule of the British government. The Irish were grafters just like all the other emigrants ,forced or otherwise. As for the Chinese building America I dont think so. The building of america was at the expence of the Native Americans.
