but, so are the rest of the ppl. actually, so are the rest of the things...
not just "asians" wutever that means or includes. i don't really think it means anything.
American- people who live in america or were born in america- can be anything from jewish jamaican or buddist chinese lady with nazi decendants
but remember, its a super landmass also including Canada and Mexico and dont forget about South America.
so when someone says American or Canadian and yes Asian, they are designating the region of the earth from where they were born/ they live/ lived.
it doesnt say anything about who they are, what they believe in, and even what color their skin is. its only a place that is relevant to whoever is being talked about at that moment, which in a diverse world cant really be used for pride or prejudice.
imagine how many people are misusing regional designation terms. it makes me sad.
