I wrote a sentence:

Vietnamese culture manifests the unity of a multi-ethnic national culture and is against cultural racism and forced acculturation of one ethnic group by another.

At the beginning, I chose express/show instead of manifest because I feel like manifest is a specific type of express/show. Therefore, I should use express/show to ensure the meaning. However, I tried looking up in the dictionary and found a bunch of definitions that in my opinion don't fit this context

Then, I tried to look up manifest Manifest: to show something clearly, especially a feeling, an attitude or a quality --> so basically manifest is used to show/express an abstract thing; therefore, is what I understood correct? or in this case should I just stick to show/express?

Manifest suits perfectly in your example. There are also other synonyms that can fit in your sentence.

For example:

Vietnamese culture [manifests / demonstrates / reveals / indicates / betrays] the unity of a multi-ethnic national culture and is against cultural racism and forced acculturation of one ethnic group by another.
