Should the term "Han" be eliminated? [Copy link] 中文

Most Chinese people are mixed with many ethnicities like Zhuang, Hui, Miao, etc...DNA analysis proves that there is no such thing as "pure" Han.  

For example, why do so many "Han" people look so different from each other.  Some can look very dark, others light.  I think the term "han" should be eliminated and we should all just refer to each other as "chinese".  

In England, people don't call each other "anglo" or "celt" or "frankish".

I guess they would lose a vital part of their personality if some foreigner such as Wettie had it her way when it comes to identifying the majority Chinese.

Of course, the Hans have mixed blood ...


Africans have the most diverse genetics out of all the races...nice try.  

And the phenotype you talk about is far more varied than british or germans.  I have never seen a white british person with brown skin.  But I have seen Han people with brown skin and also white skin.  

Han is a made up ethnicity altogether.  If ethnic minorities in China have no Han blood, than neither do I (even though I would be categorized as "han").

OK,
if it makes you happy,
just use the term "Borg" instead.

Maybe your colour perception is blind?
