For example, there's a LOT of people who believe Buddhism started in China, and ergo, the Buddha was Chinese...

I am very pleased to see your enthusiasm in protecting Buddha’s teaching.
But I think you have started your journey with the wrong footing. You said:
We would take this opportunity to say to the world one other fact which is making a big commotion in the Asian world. Buddha was born in Lumbini which belonged to the ANCIENT INDIA (INDO-NEPALESE Region) DURING GAUTAMA BUDDHA'S TIME. Today it is in the TERAI PLANES OF SOUTHERN NEPAL since Nepal & India are two different countries today.
Does it really matter whether Buddha was born in India or America? What we are interested about is, his teaching. Please ask the question yourself that this sort of argument is in line with Buddha’s teaching. I suggest that you practice at least a little bit of Buddha’s teaching before you preach it!
