    More so than many parts of the world, but Chinese people are not identical to one another in any way, any more than other people are.

    No, there are many ethnicities within China.  Eight percent of the population is non-Han, for instance the Uighur, and there are also subgroups within the Han such as the Hakka and Cantonese.

    Not really. I see people answer that more than 90% of Chinese population is Han, which is true. But Han Chinese is already a mixture. There are 2 major national integration in Chinese history. one is 600 - 900 AD of Tang dynasty; the other one is 1200 -1300 AD, Yuan dynasty which was under Mongolian rule. the Chinese we have now is the mixture of Native Chinese, Persian, Arabic, Mongolian etc. There are still very original native Chinese now, but not in big population. Besides Han, China also has 55 ethnic groups, which are considered minorities. I also see one answer saying there are 2 major languages in China, Cantonese and Mandarin, which is absolutely not true. China has 31 provinces, almost every single one has its distinct dialect, Cantonese is just one of them, not mention many minorities have their own languages.  And Mandarin, is not even one of the dialect. It is the official Chinese language used in TV, ,school and professional occasions. Nobody actually speak Mandarin in daily life. In terms of foreign immigrants, that is another topic. I believe it is extremely hard, if ever possible, to get a Chinese citizenship, if someone was not born from Chinese parents.

    Nope. Most part of China isn't China at all. Manchuria, Inner Mongolia, Hong Kong, Cantonia, Uyghuristan, Tibet and Yunnan were the territories annexed by a small fascist state called China.

      

    The Han Chinese are the majority because the Chinese government persecutes non-Han Chinese people. They are trying to control the population of other minor groups such as Uyghurs, Manchurians, Tibetans and Mongols. Don't worry, we Americans will help China to split into different countries.

    Over 90% of the population is han chinese. East asians don't buy into the western belief that diversity is strength. They are the most homogeneous nations in the world. Japan and the Koreas are regarded as the most homogeneous nations of the world. Homogeneity results in stronger unity.

    Not really, although its government pushes Mandarin and pretends that the other sinitic languages are "dialects".

    there are dozens of sinitic languages and a few dozen non-sinitic ones

    In America, just about everyone speaks English. In China, they have two main languages, Mandarin and Cantonese.  They also have other languages in the West.
