Btw, I am not sure, but the American census separate the "Filipino" race as one specific race. Did they change that?


The Spanish are not Mexicans. Not all Africans are black. Asians are not the same.

Yes, it really does matter.
Yeah, Spanish people will get mad If you call them Mexicans. Just like Filipino gets mad if they're called Chinese. But what about people from Spain? are they called Spanish or Spaniard or something? I just don't know how to call them.

In UK, 'Chinese' don't come under 'Asian'. It's a separate single category right at the bottom!
Also, Koreans, Japanese, Vietnamese, Filipino, Thai, Cambodian, Malaysian...all go under 'Others' category!

The point is, this is a discussion forum. If you are here, you do care. If you don't give a damn, then leave, you are not welcome.

Why do you even give a damn ? I don't give a damn about anything unless it's staring me in the face, so you care about something so stupid ? Look for example, take 9/11, didn't care, didn't effect me,so I don't care, so why does everyone else care so much ? This chart dosen't effect you,it doesn't run your life, so why do you care so much ?


9/11 directly caused the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, causing even more massive debt for the US, redirecting US policy and focus away from the economy, thus indirectly causing the massive global fiancial crisis today.

The chart does affect you - because it encourages generalization of entire groups that are way off. Why aren't Middle Easterners considered Asian, even though they're in continental Asia? Hell if I know!


Even though I live in the US, do you think I give a damn about the massive fiancial crisis we have ? As for encouraging generalization of entire groups that are way off, that is something i could also care less about. And as for why Middle Easterners aren't considered Asian, even though they're in continental Asia, who cares ? I shure don't, I don't live there so i don't give a damn about them or there culture or anything that has to do with them. It's not my problem. It's theres.

Ugh, A forum is for a discussion, if people have a diffrence of opinion, then thats fine, look around anywhere on CR and tell me that your gonna report all of the people who insult others, that would take you forever and a day. And would cut the population of CR down by about 1/3 - 1/2.

Well, there are some people in life who actually cares about what goes on in the world...and there are people like you who don't care and are apathetic to everything.

But then again...If you don't care then why are you responding to our posts?

Actually, census charts around the world is whack. As some previous posters said, in Europe,
Asians only refer to South Asians. East Asians are referred to as "Orientals."

Orientals, of course, is actually a term originally used to describe Middle/Near Easterns - (Persians, Arabs, Semitics, etc)
