speaking of respect. you are the one who is being disrespectful here. just to name some of you disrespectful callings.
calling huangdi the yellow king,when actualy its the yellow emperor. calling tang dynasty by sianbi tang.
and now this
Further, 秦(之亡)人 are not necessarily Chinese. They must be Tibeto-Qiangic group (Western Barbarians) who formed the core population of Qin State (Discussion in a separate thread, not here!), which is also supported by the anlysis of the Tomb of Qin Shi Huang Di recently.
if in your mind that the people of qin were tibeto-qiangic group,then tell me why qin shihuang himself unified the written system of china,which continiued being used till today,but not in tibet? wouldn't make more sense if qin shihuang unified the language or written system of tibet instead china?
i would like to see the academic sources for your so called "the anlysis of the Tomb of Qin Shi Huang Di"
really? what xianbei dynast that ruled half of china once?
dont force you ways on other people,they can call it whatever they want to, be it xianbei or sianbi,both are correct. and people are more familar with the term Xian Bei (鮮卑) than nonkown name sianbi.
these dynasties proudly claimed to be the successors of mandate of heaven which in other words,they felt more chinese then their tiny bit of xianbei blood in them.
This is Barhae thread, so lets don't bother going too deep on your issues (Tahnks in advance for your expected coopeation).
But, at the time of Huang Di, the Yellow King, there was NO EMPIRE therefore, lets call him as Yellow King.
Regarding Qin Shi Huang Di, your question is partly legitimate, but Tibeto-Qiangic does not necessarily mean "Tibetans", but Qiangic people who are a branch thereof and using a Tibetan dialect and they did not have written language until Xia (Jin-Song-Xia-Yuan era) state and created their famously difficult Xi-Xia script, which is now being deciphered by an eminent Qiang scholar!
As for Sianbi, see my response to YUN, but think about why I say we need to respect the original pronunciations of the words, if possible.
Regarding "Mandate", you are right in that they were "proud of proclaiming themselves as the Central Kingdom" with the Mandate they obtained from Heaven, but that has nothing to do with "China" in modern sense. The Chinese (Han and other Non-Ruling ethnic group often included) were some times part of the "Central Kingdom", but were often NOT, being called "Southern Barbarians (e.g. Yuan Mongol word "Nan-giad: Southern Kitad), Dao Yi (end of 5 Hu 16 Guo: Song, Qi, Liang, Chen States) and Nikan (Qing-Manchu).
But, it appears that unlike other ethnic groups of relatively small numbers, Hui do not seem to have created any state or regime, despite their sizeable population, am I right?
