The majority population living on the island of Taiwan. They are not only culturally different from the Han Chinese, but genetically different as well.
When the Mainland Chinese sailors, bandits, and businessmen came to the island of Taiwan 500-600 years ago, they were for the most part exclusively male.
The ones that remained on the island married the local women with genetic stock closer to the pacific islanders than the Han Chinese.
As a result, the Chinese genetic lineage began to weaken as the mixed children of these relationships had more children. The reason that Taiwanese have Chinese last names is due to the Patriarchy and Racism of Chinese colonialism. Genetically speaking, however,Taiwanese and Chinese are significantly different.
Taiwanese are sexy mofos who are genetically different from the Chinese.
I race Of people born in taiwan... NOT people who are Chinese. The People from taiwan have been forced under old terms to side with chinas "One country two governments" system. Which personally is total BS just because Hong Kong went along with it doens't mean Taiwan Should. Taiwan should and will be a free country soon enough.
People who are born, OR raised, OR living in Taiwan, AND embracing, loving the nature, culture, and everything about Taiwan.
A)Born and Raised: Chien-Ming Wang, who is a native Taiwanese has shined in New York.
B)Live in TW and Love it: Dr. GEO.L.MACKAY devoted himself improving the medical treatment and environment his whole life. He's regarded as one of the greatest Taiwanese at all time.
The Taiwanese people are NOT Han Chinese, although outsiders may make the common mistake of labeling them "Chinese", as with most of the other Asian races.
In Taiwan, the population is 84% Taiwanese (including the Hakka people), 14% mainland Han Chinese and 2% aborigine.
Also: Although Mandarin Chinese is the official language in Taiwan, there are also local dialects of Taiwanese and Hakka. The written language is in Traditional Chinese (NOT simplified Chinese), and the romanizations often do not follow Chinese pin yin, but are more suited for Westerners to read.
Some person: Oh, look at all of these cool Chinese artists!
Taiwanese person: No, some of those albums in your hands are from Taiwan and sung by TAIWANESE artists. The other albums are from mainland China and sung by CHINESE artists. Don't confuse them!!

People born in Taiwan, love Taiwan, have parents from Taiwan, or love anything Taiwanese. And even though people say we are actually Chinese, we used to be.... a couple hundred years ago. So everyone on Taiwan is Taiwanese, not Chinese.
