I am still wondering why the names of various non white minorities have been mislabelled by white people.Can they ever get it correct? Asians in the British context are people from the Indian subcontinent.It has a different(this time correct by the U.S media) meaning in U S to mean Oriental people...Koreans Chinese etc.The fools call the indiginous tribes they stole America from "Red Indians".An offensive racist term to indiginous peoples.As a kid I just didnt understand why and thought the "Red Indians" came from India as one was interested in the history of the Old West.The correct classification is Native American.The "N" word to describe people of African descent is unrepeatable.Why dont those white jackasses CALL PEOPLE AS WHO THEY ACTUALLY ARE.Are they stupid or what dem "honkies"?...Ah just asking mind. big grin

No, you are wrong.

The term "oriental" is not used anyomore.

In the USA, Asian American is the (correct) term used to describe Americans who are Asian ancestry. And furthermore, the sub-group South Asian is specific to peoples form the vast sub continent but also includes people who are of Caribbean heritage whose ancestors are from the Sub Continent.

I did say that the US got it correct to describe people of Oriental descent as Asians.So why dont the white British describe people of the Indian descent as Asians then? The term has TWO DIFFERENT MEANINGS IN THE U.S and Britain.For fcuk sake cant whitey be consistent.And you havent addressed the offensive term "Red Indian".Have YOU ever seen a man or woman with a RED FACE? These are offensive terms mocking other races persecuted colonised abused bastardised by the Anglo Saxon British Empire in colonial times.A lack of respect for other races.The U.S term like "The Washington Redskins" to name an American football team is offensive to Native Americans.And it had to be changed in these politically correct times.Where did
EMIR come from?..I will address you Sir as probably a gent of Indian descent in probably Trinidad.Or a black gent who is a convert to Islam.I stand corrected Sir if I am wrong.However I have shown you due respect racially you dont get from white people.Who may put you in the wrong category.Go figure.And have fun.

The term "oriental" is not used anymore.

Slight correction: "Oriental" is still used to describe certain types of food or rugs, etc.

All this further confusion about other labels only proves my point.But once again....People from the Indian subcontinent are PEOPLE OF INDIAN DESCENT.Not Asians.The term Asians cover a wide range of people of Oriental descent.There is no such person as a "Red Indian".The jackass Columbus thought he was in India when he "discovered" the "New World".The native people were of a lighter complexion than East Indians...so the fool called them Red Indians.The joke is he had an Irishman as his navigator and got lost when leaving Spain.The Jackass went west instead of east.Its all Irishman Paddy's fault.I wont take credit for that Irish
joke.But I borrowed it from a friend.

As far as I see there is no geographical distinction between European and Asian (I can be corrected). I have also never heard of Russians called Asians. Which continent is turkey put in? Middle East is not a continent

The Ural river separates Asia and Europe for Kazakhs.
They like to walk on that river in winter.
They try to get me to accompany them but I fraid too bad. Too damn cold anyway to be outside, far less on a damn deep river and piss poor medical infrastructure.

You are confused my boy!

Russians are not Asians and no official or formal classification refers to them as such. In the former Soviet Union, of which were many central Asian states, that are now independent countries, the people of those central Asian states were the one who were classified and rightfully so, as Asians.

As for the Turks, at least half of the people are central Asian decent, so its not incorrect to refer to them as such.

You may not know it, but geographically the land mass of Turkey is located in two continents- Asia and Europe.

Thus, many refer it it as "the bridge"

No Cams, Turkey is located in two continents- Europe and Asia.

Not the middle east.
