It's a little annoying because us East Asians can tell the different nationalities apart just by looking, usually (at least Japanese are really good at it, you can't get away with anything - we can pick out people of other descent as well ). And then when I go to the U.S. everyone's all, 'Oh, you've got such great hair! (My hair's down to about my knees.) I guess traditional Chinese really do keep their hair long!' or something like that.

Come on, is China the only country in East Asia?


hah thats funny that u say japanese can pick out people from other descent... My teacher lived and taught in Japan for a while. One of his friends that lived there used to get really annoyed when some of the ppl he knew would say that the japanese are better ect and they would reference their looks in comparisson with other asian groups so he used to take out this pic he had and ask a favor that they would pick out which person was japanese and which was chinese because he "didnt kno"..and of course they would get it wrong the trick was they were all actually japanese lol ... lol the point that the teacher was trying to make was that there are only three races ( which is tru if you've taken anthropology) and there really isnt a difference. Of course i'm sure that there are some slight differences becuase of different groups that settled in different places ect. people mixing way back when lol and of course theres the cultural differences

It's a little annoying, but I know there are people who just have trouble telling the difference. I can deal with it. :]

I think South Asian people might be more likely to get offended, but they're probably more used to it in the US anyway. All South Asian people in the US are just called "Indian." I think I'm the only person who even knows the term "south asian" and can name more than 2 south asian countries.

It doesn't really make me mad.

I get mad when Filipinos think they are better than Asians and also when they think they aren't Asian.

The Philippines are PART OF ASIA. That means Filipinos are technically Asian.
