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.

China has been invaded by nearly all its neighbors.  I think it will be Vietnam´s turn in a few hundred years.  The first cultural shift we must impose on the Chinese is changing their pork filled dimsum ingredients to not smell so bad.

What's to stop you from liking all the other things in the Sinosphere that had been emphasized from aesthetics and taste and made it to the present

Food/tea culture
Great walls/monumental architecture/parks
Reluctant warrior culture/"Samurai" blades tradition
Yinyang meditation/zen and graceful philosophies

If China was a not a unified country, it would be a region full of prosperous little countries.  What keeps the "Chinese" from progressing is centralization.  The same can be said for the three regions of Vietnam.

Also many names were adopted by the civilizing force of certain countries. Many areas of Europe and Africa were termed by the Greeks and later the Romans and Arabs.  I mean which rational Africans in their right mind called their country Sudan:

Sudan, country located in northeastern Africa. The name Sudan derives from the Arabic expression bilād al-sūdān (“land of the blacks”), by which medieval Arab geographers referred to the settled African countries that began at the southern edge of the Sahara
