they called all foreigners "yi" or "yue". The british wrote in a treaty to forbid the Chinese from calling them "yi".

I'm pretty much at a lost, who's pandering?  I don't even know what pandering is.


There were a NanYue and MinYue kingdom in the past so it is an actual name of a state.  I don't think Yue means babarian.  I don't think  Zhao Tuo would want to name his kingdom South Barbarians.  They might call Yue people as barbarian Yue people but later infer Yue people as barbarians.

Yeah. The term that means southern barbarian (to the Chinese) is 南蠻 / Nanman.

how did the Khmers come up with "yuon" as a derogatory word for Vietnamese?  I always thought it had some Chinese origin.
