If we are to have any chance of progressing in this respect, we must first re-examine the theories which have been formulated in this area and also the historical attempts to make these phenomena part of a more or less stable social structure. For example, economic interests within the United States might seek policies that are diametrically opposed to the programs sought by ethnic groups. For the case of the Indians and Chinese in Asia, see for example Suryadinata, ed., 1995; Yen Ching-hwang, A Social History of the Chinese in Singapore and Malaya, Singapore: Oxford University Press, 1986; Christine Dobbin, Asian Entrepreneurial Minorities: Conjoint Communities in the Making of the WorldEconomy, 1570–1940, Richmond: Curzon, 1996; Sandhu and Mani, eds, 1993.

Nearly 6,264,800 people identified themselves as a member of a visible minority group. The mainland's 5,774 km (3,588 mi) coastline, extending from the mouth of the Yalu River in the northeast to the Gulf of Tonkin in the south, forms a great arc, with the Liaodong and Shandong peninsulas in the north protruding into the Yellow Sea and the Leizhou Peninsula in the south protruding into the South China Sea. The number of cities of 50,000 or more residents in which non-Hispanic whites are a minority increased from 58 in 1980 to 100 in 1990, and it is likely to have increased further during the 1990s.

You should also pay by a credit card, because it is possible to cancel the payment later. This has been demonstrated in the past with the various ethnicities of the country, and there should be no reason why the Chinese community should be excluded from this accommodation, particularly if economic grievances were being addressed simultaneously as part of a market liberalisation.

In total, Chinese languages were reported by 13.0% of the foreign-born population with single mother tongue. Food in China varies widely from region to region so the term "Chinese food" is pretty much a blanket term, just like "Western food."

Their understanding of minorities had been heavily influenced by the Soviet models of Joseph Stalin —as has been the case for the neighbouring Communist regimes of Vietnam and Laos [8] —and the Soviet's definition of minorities did not map cleanly onto this Chinese historical understanding.
