For Asian Americans to discuss Asian American issues and topics.
Aren't they technically the niggers of the Pacific? I'm asking because "Philosophical Filipino" keeps shitting up this site with multiple accounts and has the Jew-implanted "Asian pride" delusion that he is in some way aligned with males from China/Japan/etc, when they are at least 2x smarter than him and share nothing in common.
Does it really matter?
I am a terrible person.
Yes it does matter, the truth eradicates bullshit memes. Greeks or Italians are not White (at the very least not any longer), but they are still European. The various people that make up the Philippines are not really "Asian" genetically nor even culturally or geographically.
Americanized Filipino's tend to think of themselves separate from other Asians: they act more like Blacks and Hispanics than they do Asian. Many Filipino's are much more Westernized than other Asians as well, which explains why they don't do as well academically and economically as other Asian countries.
these type of questions are ignorant. are italians european? last time i checked their culture and physical appearance is quite different from the english but they are both quite european although from different cultures. the filipinos sadly have thier country run like a poor central american country which explains the mess its in today. does that mean the people are not asian because they are poorer than other asain nations?
one thing the filipinos have in common with other asian countries; they love rice, karaoke and they drink like shit

Oh, the usual. I bowl. Drive around. The occasional acid flashback. (The Dude)
the dude abides
lone_yakua, are your the first japanese guy on HA? whatÂ´s up man? so youÂ´re altaic, turks might also be slightly in this gang
ginger, nice info. your description reminds me of the turcs. same psychedelic nationalism but huge infights all the time...
odbo, whatÂ´s up at stormfront or are you not allowed because youÂ´re a jew?
the pinoys remind me little bit of the aborigenes in australia thoug they look much better....
Altaic peoples keep taking over the world!
First the Turks, then the Mongols, then the Manchus, then the Japanese ... and now the Koreans are taking over the world with their crazy pop music. It's a Gangnam Style conspiracy to take over the world, and make it an Altaic New World Order!
As for those of you who wonder why Turkic peoples can look both Northeast Asian and white, that's because Turks are bada*s. Whenever they conquer a new place, they always get all the ladies there, and their kids then start to look like the locals. In other words, Asian guys getting all the white chicks. This had also happened to the Mongols of medieval times, when Mongols in many places were reported to have a lot of Caucasian features. Turks are like amoebas when it comes to appearance! But they are still 100% Turks because of the common culture and heritage that binds them all together. Odbo may have a lot of trouble conceptualizing this.
That's what much of Luzon was also like before the Spanish had arrived. For example, there's Lakandula who had ruled the Kingdom of Tondo. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lakandula
And apparently Odbo has the Negritos of the Philippines in mind (yeah, I'm being a little sarcastic here). They're actually much more related to other Asians and Europeans than they are to Africans.
Great post..appreciate the insight Ginger!
People migrated out of Africa long ago and spread around the world based on arbitrary factors. Now, someone is trying to pigeonhole these people into neat categories and assign labels to them. It is as simple as trying to organize trash in a dumpster. And North Euros particularly Brits and Germans started that crap.
Terms such as European, Asian, African, etc are fluid and depend on who is doing the considering. Are you talking about the US government institutions and the US administration's ethnic classifications? Then yes, they are. The US gov't considers them Asian. That is why the dude is doing the Asian pride flag-waving. He is in the US and he, along with Chinese, Japanese and Koreans is dumped into the Asian category. By the US gov't and society.
As far as technically being n'''ers of the Pacific, who came up with that term? Who and where is officially and technically classifying them as such? You? The UN? The US gov't? Some drunk US sailor at a bar in Angeles City?
Oh, and also, the US gov't considers Turks and Iranians as well as Arabs who are in Asia as "white". And strangely,the US gov't consider's Algerians and Muammar Kaddafi as white, too.
But all these classifications become invalid once you leave the US. Unless you listen to a drunk US expat at a bar somewhere and accept his words as the supreme truth.
In the Philippines for example, there is no official racial classification in documents or in censuses etc- everything is decided by citizenship- what citizen are you?. And that is the way it should be. This is why I consider the Philippines to be a superior social system. You are what your citizenship is. Nothing more nothing less. There is still a political nation there and anyone can be part of it provided one has citizenship there.
Not like the BS here in the US.
In informal life, the Filipinos do not even have the term "Asian" and do not wrack their brains/ agonize over it. The humanity is simple to their eyes.
A white man walks down the street- they call him Kano or Porener
A black man walks down the street - they call him Negro
An Arab man walks down the street- they call him Arabo
An Indian/Bangladeshi man walks down the the street -they call him -Bumbay
A yellow man walks down the street -they call him Insek/Hapon or Koreano after they ask.
A brown man walks down the street- they call him Pinoy.
The word Asian is rarely if ever used.
Ethic definitions are all arbitrary and even if they are official they change with country and the time period.
