Let's say if I was born and live in Germany in my entire life (which is even better than Lam since he was born in China), does that make me a "German"? No, it does not. At the end of the day I'm still a Vietnamese, not some German
The Germans get to decide who is a citizen and who is not. In their case, they are very hun up on the concept of German ancestry, which is why a child born in Germany from Turkish parents does not get to claim citizenship, whereas an ethnic German whose ancestors emigrated to Russia 400 years ago can claim citizenship.
Since I am of partial Chinese ancestry, and members of my family have fought in all of Vietnam's wars, I don't give a rat's @ss what you think: if the ethnic Chinese says he is Vietnamese, then he is Vietnamese. Loyalty speaks louder than blood.
