Why aren't any other race in Asia referred as Asians?
What Guys Said 3
Asians is a geographical classification which includes many races and ethnic groups.
But yeah in the western culture it is too complicated to differentiate between them.
So for me it is the same as other wards like:
Europeans: British, German , Polish...
Asians: Indian , Chinese, Saudi...
African: Sudanese... XD1
I always wondered the same.2
In America East Asians are the one most thought about and familiar with.1
What Girls Said 3
Probably because they have other titles? like brown, middle eastern, russian...
"asians" usually refers to oriental, but few people really use that (and it sounds awkward)
and for a lot of people, it's hard to distinguish between chinese, korean, vietnamese, filipino, etc.0
