    I call bullshit. First of all, his source is bunk, as the statistics he claims aren’t even on the linked page. Secondly, I have a source here that says the Han Chinese population in 1941 was 5%. This is a Chinese source. So even assuming that Sun’s statistics aren’t bunk, there still was a massive demographic shift and Sun is being dishonest by masking it by deliberately limiting his time span.
