    Asia is a continental region that have some various races of peoples and many nationalities; when Asian nationalities are

    said as a race, it usually meant to indicate an Asian racial subdivision of Mongoloid such as East Asian, Southeast Asian,

    or Eurasian. Sometimes Asian is said to mean somely mixed with racial subdivision of Mongoloid and somely mixed with

    other nonwhite racial subdivision. Amerindian and Polynesian are non-Asian subdivisions of Mongoloid. There are some

    mixed races of peoples of Indian Subcontinent, or Southern Asia, who are somely mixed with subdivisions of Mongoloid.

    Asia is a continent. Indians, Pakistanis, Bangladeshis, Chinese, Koreans, Japanese and people from the middle east are all Asians.

    WE all started out brown and with brown eyes, most still are. But some went to places and built with the ability to adapt to our environment developed other cladistics of the people who live there. So in trying to name them we come up with Asian or Black or even white. Yet, white people go to tanning booths, and black people use sun screen to become whiter. Asians get surgery on their eyes to be more round and everyone is abscessed with what they look like. Some people inherit the looks of their parents and they are called Asian. That just means they have more of the facial features. Which some have changed by surgery. So today Asian actually means nothing.

    It's neither. Asian means someone is from Asia. Even though most of the time people think of Asians as people from East Asia, such as China or Japan.

    Neither. "Asian" simply means someone from Asia. This is the largest of the continents with three fifths of the people of the world in forty eight countries stretching from Turkey to Timor Leste. Asia has thousands of languages and cultures and people of all shapes and sizes and with every possible shade of skin colour from palest to darkest. Israel, Iran, Iraq, India and Indonesia are all Asian countries as are Syria, Saudi Arabia, South Korea, Sri Lanka and Singapore and 38 other countries.

    Calling someone "Asian" tells us nothing at all about them and it is ignorance that causes people to use the term.
