"We, the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union...."
I guess that means anyone in the United States at the time this is being pronounced aloud or read....

I'd say anyone within the US borders are included in this statement, be they are Asian, African, Vulcan, Martian or demon.

(I'm VERY open-minded.)

- I'm not exactly sure what this thread is about? At the time when the wrote the Constitution their probably weren't any Asians living in the US and if there was, there was very few, but like Jinchenfan just said, it says "We, the people of the United States". Now, many Asians live in the US so of course the Constitution protects their rights too? I guess I'm missing how this topic is a discussion.

Anyway, there's basically no information, or starting discussion in your first post, so according to the Extend Discussion guidelines this should be locked anyway. If you don't agree, please PM another moderator =).
