Ethnicity and Identity, A Study on YouTube

Wow, I didn’t expect to be posting this many YouTube videos, but this was very interesting and I couldn’t help myself. But in all honesty, I shouldn’t be spending so much time on YouTube.

Basically, this is a series of interviews with Chinese young adults who were raised outside of the motherland. They describe their stories around the question of identity. Each interview is 8-10 minutes, so it takes a bit of time, but worth a view.

Check out the description here, the creator, and the series below:

As the world becomes smaller and more interconnected, old ways of thinking become less and less suitable. New ways of understanding things must be introduced to adapt to new phenomenons; this documentary attempts to do just that. For most people, ethnicity and identity are seen as one thing. However, I theorize that in the future these two concepts will grow further apart and at the same time become vague. This piece serves as a window into the future as well as into my own personal thoughts.
