The CCP does not promote Han supremacy in any identifiable way. They do promote a Chinese identity, but this identity is inclusive of 56 ethnic groups, and they promote immigration into China, especially foreign workers and students - despite often drawing ire from the Chinese Weibo public.

This is so disingenuous I don't even know where to begin.
Do we start with the European conception of ethnicity that isn't found in the mindsets of the average East Asian? Mind you, 'Han' is a very inclusive and very vague label that doesn't really mean anything.
Do we start with the fact that historical immigration to the West is the product of colonialism, and mass economic migration in the present - the former of which cannot be applied to China, and the latter of which is a current trend?
The complete lack of evidence for any of these claims, except in some nebulous vague cloud of "common sense and commonly known" that leads all the commentators on PoFo with no understanding of Chinese, no close connection to China, and no experience with Chinese culture to authoritatively state absurd 'facts' about how Chinese think, and conceive of themselves?
