Since China's reform and opening up, its economy and national strength have greatly increased, and state-to-state exchanges have become more frequent, and the living standards of the Chinese have improved rapidly. China's position in the world continues to gradually increase. However, anti-Chinese incidents still occur frequently in the Western world, and the Chinese are still regarded as Fu Manchu-style villains. The reason for this is worth pondering. The purpose of this article is to interpret Fu Manzhou’s wicked symbols in the context of the new era. Through investigations and studies, analysis of domestic and international status and consultation with professionals in psychology, collection of historical data and comparison with current data, the use of mathematical statistics and mathematical analysis Analyze the research, use big data calculations and network processing methods to classify, and draw experimental conclusions. Experimental data show that in the nineteenth century, the West hated the Chinese because of economic development because of their sense of superiority and anxiety. The reason why Fu Manzhou,s wicked symbol still has room for living in the new era is because the development of China made the West both envious and jealous. Experimental data shows that in the new era, Chinese people should persist in cultural self-confidence, strive to develop their economy, use practical actions to improve the international image of the Chinese, and help China's international development.
