No, as somebody from an ethnic Chinese background, I constantly want to distance myself from their embarrassing culture and conduct. It’s horrible authoritarianism mixed with all the most embarrassing aspects of capitalism’s duhumanizing ‘I got mine’ mentality. You see people running over children in cars and hosting celebratory dog-eating festivals. I find myself being mortified and ashamed at their society at every turn. I’m horrified at their no-dignity behavior. There’s literally no art, literature, or contemporary culture to be proud of. I really feel that any identification with China diminishes me to an almost sub-human barbaric level. Traditional culture may be different, but the current regime in mainland China truly brings me sorrow.
