As an interesting sidenote, in South Africa, a Chinese person (who was in SA before 1994) is legally black.

I remember watching the 2008 Olympics Opening Ceremony and noticing the difference between the American team and the Chinese team as they walked in.

I think it's pretty incredible that Lopez Lomong, the guy who was the US flagbearer. He was a refugee from Sudan in 2001 and he wasn't even a US citizen until 2007, just barely 1 year before the Olympics. And he got to represent the United States in front of the world.

Would it be out of the question for a Uighur or a Tibetan to carry the Chinese flag? Possible... but doubtful.
