I've always considered it this way since everyone gets offended or confused when I say "Asian": Filipino, Indonesians,etc.: South Pacific Islanders Indians: Don't know another name, I just say Indians... Chinese, Japanese, Korean, etc: Orients I'm totally Chinese. But my uncle is black (My dad's sister married him), my aunt is Japanese (my mother's brother married her), my other uncle is white (my mom's sister married him), my mom was raised in Vietnam, and my dad was raised in Taiwan... I could go on and on.
I'm a Chinese that inhabits a school where everyone's a wannabe that thinks swearing makes them cool.
