But, as soon as the communist takeover was complete the Vietnamese fled by the millions, a first in the 4,000 year history of the country. Once the communist grip on the Vietnamese people was complete, they showed their true colors and conditions got so bad that not only the people from the south fled by the millions, but they were soon joined by northerners who fled as well.

Marines' Other War in Vietnam (1989).

From time immemorial, akingdom reigned in the heart of the Asian continent. Known as the Middle Kingdom or Chung Hoa, its power center was located in the Five Mounts (Ngu Linh) Territory. It was peopled by many races, the two major being those of the Han and the Viet. Unlike the homogeneous Han, the Viets incorporated hundreds of tribes and were known as the Pac Yeuh (One hundred Yeuh) or Each Viet, whose chief ruled the Five Mounts Territory. The Viets settled south of the Yellow River and developed an agricultural culture, whereas the Han in the northwest became expert in hunting and battle skills.
The Five Mounts Territory of the Middle Kingdom was ruled by three consecutive chiefs: Toai Nhan - who discovered fire; Phuc Hi - who discovered the I Ching and domesticated wild animals; and Shen Nong - who cultivated wild plants for domestic use and taught his people to grow rice. By the end of Shen Nong's era the Han had invaded the Five Mounts territory and occupied the highest mount, Thai Son.
Their chief proclaimed himself Hwangdi, the Yellow Emperor of the Center, in accordance with the Five Elements concept. Hwangdi inherited the heritage of the Tam Hoang, Three Yellows era, which his invasion of The Five Mounts Territory ended. He referred to the Viets settled in the South as the southern barbarians, Nam Man. The Viets fled to the south where their chief proclaimed himself Viem De, the Red Emperor of the South, and named their territory Xich Qui, the territory of the Red Devils. This marked the first Viet exodus from Chung Hoa, the Middle Kingdom. The Viets regarded themselves as descendents of the first three chiefs of China's Three Yellows era. The last of the three, Shen Nong, is the direct Viet link.
According to Vietnamese historical folklore, De Minh, a third generation descendent of Shen Nong, fled to the southern territory of the Five Mounts and married Princess Vu Tien. Their son, Loc Tuc, became king of the south and called himself Kinh Duong Vuong, King of the Kinh and Duong Territory. He married one of the daughters of Dong DinhQuang, a king from the lake of Dong Dinh territory. Their son, Sung Lam, succeeded his father to become Lac Long Quan, meaning the Lac Dragon.

Vietnam War: Myth and Memory (1992).

Despite worsening internal divisions and a flagging movement, 500,000 peopledemonstrated against the war in Washington in April 1971. Vietnam Veterans Against the Waralso staged protests, and other demonstrators engaged in mass civil disobedience,prompting 12,000 arrests.

Blacks accounted for 11.2 percent of combat deaths in Vietnam.

With U.S. troops coming home, the antiwar movement gradually declined between 1971 and1975. The many remaining activists protested continued U.S. bombing, the plight of SouthVietnamese political prisoners, and U.S. funding of the war.
