How is it racist? It is people who can link their heritage back to the ROC (modern day China, Mongolia, Taiwan, Mazu, Penghu and Kinmen (Jinmen) (Jinmen)).
European countries do the same shit to get white people (and not that wrong side of the iron curtain variety) to move back there.
It does sound somewhat racist. Just because someone else does it too doesn't make it right. Discrimination is discrimination.

Can I claim citizenship of the world?
Agreed. We really shouldn't need an alien invasion to realize at the end of the day we're all human beings living on the same blue marble here. The earth belongs to the people and its future generations, and some bureaucrats in a government shouldn't be allowed to draw lines on a map and tell you where you can and can't be to settle and start a family somewhere just because you weren't born at a place of their liking, or don't have the right parents or whatever.
A man/woman should be judged on his life choices and actions; things like birthplace, parents, sex, ethnicity, sexual orientation, disabilities... etc things you can't just change shouldn't be reasons for discrimination and an excuse for prejudicial treatment.
