Oh, Indians arn't Asian now? Is that how you're going to play it?

And you specify Indians, but not Chinese, Cambodian, Vietnamese, Thai, Japanese, Korean, and Laos?


That's mainly because India has a population of 1.3 billion. Also, it's because many people don't usually refer to Indians as Asians, but rather just as Indians. They are definitely Asian, but not exactly what most people would immediately think of if they were asked "What does an Asian look like?".

Maybe that's just me, I don't know...

No racist I swear

Such a racist!

I'm a Thai/White mix. The Thai takes front seat of my features, while for my brother it takes a back seat. We end up looking like an Asian version and White version of the same person.

Look, EVERYONE. Their are only two actual choices up there. Either you're White, or you're Other.

I forgot I made that joke! And indeed it's partially a joke.

I believe my idea behind the post was "India is different enough from Asia to warrant mention, but not enough to obtain it's own poll slot"

That's why it's so great to have the "other" option to cover the general mass of races. Of course, anybody who's white passing will generally take the white option. So that 75% White 25% black guy generally picks white....generally. Their are exceptions.

Odd addition. My brother is white-looking enough to pass for white, and answers white. I am not and always pick Other/Asian. My sister is an even blend between the two, but generally sides with the Thai side.
Unfortunately for us, we're constantly bombarded with "Do you speak Spanish? No? You should get in touch with your heritage! What do you mean you're not Mexican, are you (Insert tan skinned race here)"

Asking someone what an Asian looks like is the same as asking if Jewish people speak Jewish. No, they generally learn Hebrew, and yes General areas of Asia have widely different facial profiles.

AHAHAHAAHAHA. I love Cyanide and Happiness, although lately their quality of jokes has been going down. Maybe it's onslaught of shorts every week bogging them down? Kraisis

Ahhhhhhh. I was teetering between whether it was actually a joke or not.

But I get what you mean. Asia's a very populated place, with many cultures and a huge diversity of populations. East Asians tend to look similar to each other, but different than South Asians or Pacific Islanders, but they are still considered under the "Asian" blanket term (sometimes Pacific Islanders aren't, though, actually).

Also, I constantly get bombarded with questions like "do you speak Chinese?"

Nevermind that they don't even know if I'm Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Vietnamese... although I am Chinese lol.

Asian problems...
