Hi, thanks for responding. I’m actually hesitant to react to this. But I just wish to clarify two things, and I’ll leave you at that.

First, the ‘Chinese’ I used throughout the whole article is a cultural term, not a nationalistic one. In fact, if you’ve read it closely, I’m referring more to the people outside of China. I think there’s where most of the confusion comes in. ‘Chinese’ can refer to someone’s nationality or race.

Second, nowhere in my writings suggest ‘superiority’. Again, if you’ve read the article, I’m suggesting quite the opposite — it’s even implied in the subtitle. In fact, I’m actually insinuating some weaknesses in the metrics we use to measure competency.

So, I have no idea why you’d accuse me of propagating Chinese nationalism when I’ve not even spoken about the nation itself.
