Per population I don't think there are THAT many Chinese. In the past Chinese tended to dominate, though, as far as Asians were concerned.

I don't believe, for one minute, there are 1.2 billion people in China today, after instituting their one-child policy in 1980? I believe. The purpose of that policy was to reduce the population to a more manageable 700 million over time.

I believe if they really did a very accurate census of that country, you wouldn't come up with 1.2 billion for sure!

Because they are taking over the world as the whites once did in the past.

My thoughts exactly. Given that they are about one fifth of the world's population I don't encounter that many of them.

Well, you also have to consider the fact that China has the LONGEST continuous civilization in the world. In the past 4000, or arguably 5000 years, Chinese have never stopped to explore and settle in the other parts of the world by trade and commerce.

Even though they make up 20% of the world's population, the Chinese make up only 1% of the U.S population. So in the U.S they are underrepresented compared to their share of the world's population.

China is a massive country that was already quite populated many thousands of years ago and has migrated to various parts of the world (think Eskimos, for example). They play a bigger part in old American history than many people realize.

Well, actually they did stop the exploration of the outside world and turned completely inward. This happened in the 16th century. As a result, the Chinese lost their cutting edge technology to the Europeans, who subsequently conquered the world.
