That gives China an edge over other countries. The Chinese population is under the heel of a small elite group of leaders. Human and political rights in China are virtually nonexistent making it easy for the elite to achieve their domination objectives. They are an old culture with patience, much older than North American culture which is now an instant gratification culture. There is a Chinese saying, “A man will sit for a long time with his mouth open before a bird flies in it”. In other words, all can be achieved with patience. With the advent of the Cold War, China immediately set out to protect it’s population and survivability. The Chinese government built massive shelters in their major cities and are capable of getting millions of people to safety in the event of a nuclear attack, thus ensuring their ability to continue their race. They are here in massive numbers and they are not going away.

    Enslavement. Exploitation. Discrimination. Violence. Forced removal. Genocide.

    Despite inhabiting America for thousands of years, Native Americans faced all of this and more at the hands of America’s white settlers and the state’s government itself.

    Not mentioning capturing slaves from Africa to exploit.

    That was evil behaviour.

    The genocide inflicted on Native Americans by European settlers is known as, “The White Man’s Burden”. It was repeated in the DR with the arrival of Columbus and done under the guise of converting the aboriginals to Christianity. Evil with the Cross leading the way.

    Of course. I expected this type of dialog. Very relevant to this thread. All this and more indeed.

    Some like to think about history, some like to look at the future, and others focus on what is happening now that could be a real problem in the DR.

    The economic power of an influx of Chinese money is impressive. As British control of Hong Kong came closer to being turned over to the Chinese government, many Hong Kong residents hedged their bets and bought massive amounts of real estate in Vancouver Canada to ensure they had a safe haven from the draconian Chinese regime. They tore down good homes and built mansions on postage stamp lots. Certain numbers are unlucky in Chinese culture so they had the municipal address numbers changed. The end result was a sky rocketing real estate market and multi-million dollar prices for houses that normally sold for three or four hundred thousand dollars. Once they established their base, they left their kids in Canada and returned to Hong Kong to pursue their financial goals. Housing for the average Canadian in Vancouver is now unaffordable. It would be interesting to see if an influx of Chinese to the DR would result in a heated real estate market but I don’t think that will happen.

    Native Americans did all of that to each other plus ritual sacrifice on a mass industrial scale. And "Americans" did not capture slaves in Africa they traded for them. Also you do realize that 20 times more slaves were shipped to the Caribbean and S. America vs. USA. This has nothing to do with China.
