    It seems you don't actually understand the situation. The place used to be Formosa until Chiang Kai Shek and about twenty million Chinese nationals came over during the "Revolution" that made the mainland "Communist". There might still be around a million or two Formosans. The Chinese Nationalists who run the place now call themselves "Tai" or "Taiwanese", attempting to legitimize their claims to the place, but they are "Chinese" who still insist they are the "real" Chinese, as in Capitalist sort. But as crazy as it all is, the Tai are great businessmen, and they have for decades been entrepreneurs helping to build up businesses on the mainland. They come and go, and the commies smile. They are one of the reasons even the former Brit port of Hong Kong decided they could do business just as well under the "commie" government. And why people like McConnell and Trump believe they can negotiate and get somewhere with the "commies". They are no more "commie" than the Rockefellers and Fords..... But they are all about government.....

    I have a relative, a member of the John Birch Society no less, who is a top executive in a Chinese company, who has lived in Shanghai for over a decade.

    This is the place where former Emperors castrated their male palace help, though they allowed the eunuchs to keep their parts in a bottle of formaldehyde to be buried with them as a "whole man".

    human rights? sanitary food? ethical medical practices? re-education camps? genocidal outrages against "unreliable minorities"? You better just practice that inscrutable smile.

    I have a relative, also, who was on the Chinese Olympic team.

    I was recently a guest in the home of Chinese family, really pretty decent people overall, who were quite emphatic about how the Chinese are the top dogs in the human gene pool.....

    What could I say? I smiled and said something about what it takes to be oldest continuous culture on planet earth.... and they smiled too.

    Even One Brow thinks that is OK, not any kind of racism....

    They don't call themselves "tai" its Taiwanese, hua, han or their home ethnic group, of which the numbers are staggering.

    Tai is a small ethnic group with roots below the Himalayan plateau. The tai'ya tribe in Taiwan (aboriginal) is sometimes called tai for short. Taiwanese and Chinese people generally scoff at being associated with anything that sounds like it could be from Thailand, as they view them as "less than"
