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 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.
American: Hey, are you Chinese?

Asian: No, I'm Taiwanese.

American: Oh, that's cool.

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.

People, objects, etc. that originate from the island of Taiwan.

If you have a computer product under the brand of BenQ, Acer, or Asus, you have a Taiwanese product. Far more reliable and of higher quality than some chickenshit copy-cat Dell that was made in China.

Taiwanese people are very similar to the Japanese... only they speak Mandarin Chinese and/or local dialects. They are polite and friendly, unlike many of the mainland assholes. Oh, and they have MUCH hotter chicks.
The Taiwanese are fucking awesome. Mainland Chinese can go suck some dicks.
