Korean

japan
Quistis88
I think the question should be: "Who here isn't Asian?"

Moving thread to Spam Central, as this will definitely attract spam. --->

I have deemed my best friend (who was born in Israel, raised in Hong Kong, and in his third year of Mandarin) an honorary Chinese person laugh.gif

He deems me (the constant Japanese trivia spewing, language taking nut that I am) an honorary Japanese person. happy.gif

3/4ths German and the rest somewhere else in Europe. So, I guess I'm not Asian.

There's my contribution to the spam for the thread tongue.gif

I was born in Taiwan! You should have listed that up there, its the tiny little island beside China. And No, it's not a part of china.

Yay for the independent Taiwan!

Even more reason to love my favorite professor. laugh.gif I love Germans. Hee. I remember having this little crush on the German exchange student back in high school. biggrin.gif He looked like a generic German, too, what with his blond hair and blue eyes. He was so nice and intelligent. *has a nice impression of Germans thus far*

I was born in Hong Kong as well, moved to Canadia at age 7, barely knew English, except for "Hello, how are you?" and "My name is _____." unsure.gif

Aside from having tons of german blood, half of my family is from the South in the US. I had a couple southern judges as relatives and even one of my relatives wanted to give their land as the confederate white house. Never happened with my relative, but I guess it was one of the pieces of land being considered for the Confederates.

I guess you can say that a lot of my heretage is Elitist sad.gif

Too bad none of the money passed down to me dry.gif

On a happier note, my great, great uncle invented the grips on the basketball for Spaulding and put the cork in the baseball.

And when I was still taking gym class, I've always wondered who invented that stuff. laugh.gif Wow.

Well, that was my great, great uncle who slaved away at Spaulding tongue.gif

He invented other sports things too. His name was Robert Reach - I'll have to see if I can find the article again sometime about him and all the things he invented or had a hand in inventing.

Well, I like to consider myself asian...but I'm half Filipino and half white...people say the Philippines is "pacific islander"...but it's part of Asia right? So wouldn't that be considered Asian o.O?
mei_tenshi
Mei's 100% Chinese. She thinks. Her family history (the part the she knows, at least) doesn't go that far. Her great-grandparents lived in China, moved to Vietnam for business, grand-parents and parents were born in Vietnam, parents stopped by Hong Kong for 'bout a year before moving to the US, and then mei was born.
Ailuro
No Asian in me. I'm French, Danish, Polish, Turkish; My main four. Traces of Italian, Irish, Native American, and just found out I'm also German this morning. And my other older relatives don't even know what they are. I could have anything. >_>

I wish I knew my family history from before the 20th century (random or otherwise) laugh.gif

I think the question here should be, "Who ISN'T an Asian anywhere?"
blueices
blink.gif Deshi, Arche, and myself at the very least... happy.gif

What of you goldfish? Which country were you manufactured in? laugh.gif
Goldfish
Oh a little from Taiwan, a little from China, a litte bit from Japan. Did you know my buttery goodness was hand-churned in Chile? dry.gif

I believe I am mostly Dutch and German. Born in Canada of course. I think my Grandma and Grandpa on my father's side might have moved from germany or Holland earlier on. My dad and his side are Mennonite after all.

dry.gif I hate it when people come out of nowhere and go, "Derrh, are you Chinese? Japanese, Korean?? Those are the only Asian countries I know, so which one?" They are like slack jawed yokals. I never see anyone ask any hispanic people, "Are you Mexican, Brazilian, etc." It's only with Asian people >_<

My kids are going to be mixed though, that's a garuntee. happy.gif
eerabbit
all chinese/taiwanese i dont know which..how boring _ _,, was born in cali..equally boring _ _,, sigh*
Falling_Man
I know there are a few others posting around here. Wonder if they'll come here...?

And I also think there was another thread like this, only more extreme. Something like 'Asian Pride' or something.

[snapback]119253[/snapback]


ditto. chinese, born in california, speak mandarin and some japanese. i think i'm 100% chinese, but my grandpa's side lived in china and japan, so maybe there's something else in my blood as well. no use asking my grandpa since he doesn't remember a whole lot other than his morning tee-off times and.....yeah.

not sure about the taiwanese part, but i don't really see a difference between the nationalities chinese and taiwanese. my parents were both born in taiwan and lived there and can speak mandarin, taiwanese, and another dialect, but they consider themselves chinese and not taiwanese. i'm not too aware of the differences or the political situation, but from what i see, taiwanese is just another dialect of chinese and taiwanese wouldn't really be a nationality in the same way that people from my mom's area (who speak a different dialect) aren't their own nationality. but then again, i'm very ignorant of the differences and politics involved. wacko.gif
edsgirl
I honestly think that i'm adopted! I look Asian, but no one else in my family looks like me, and I don't really embrace my culture the way the rest of my family does. I'm not even allowed on my mother's reservation anymore. I think I'm going to start do some digging on my family background!
gundamjcr
unfortunately im not why wasnt i born adian why!!!!!!!!!!
Quistis88
Fortunately for you, no one can be "adian".

Unfortunately for you, "adian" is not dictionatical.

Boku ga firipin-jin da you... happy.gif

Yeah, I'm Asian... rolleyes.gif

My grandma says I look more like I'm American Indian than Asian, though... XD!
Sycia
There are a lot more Asian countries than just Korean, China & Japan... o____O

I'm 80% Asian, 20% European (got mixed in my bloodline waaaay back). ^_^ Proud to say that 80% of me that's Asian consists of blood from over 5 seperate countries in Asia. :D I'm a mongrel weee~
yukiroche
I'm 1/2 japanese and my other side is American indian. yea.... except I'm not really proud of my american indian dad since I've never seen him before and he wasn't that great of a father i think. I don't know what happened to him but my stepdad is Irish hehe and he's nice!
Thievesvinegar
Careful about the taiwanese and chinese. They think there is a difference, but they're all the same power-hungry pricks.

I wonder how tolerant the chinese are to the japs.

[snapback]130382[/snapback]



LoL, some young Taiwanese and mainland Chinese get along fine... of course they avoid political topics and all...

I believe the older generation of Chinese still hold a grudge against the Japanese for what happened in WW2, but that's slowly changing with the younger generation getting Japanese influence and all... (Though I've heard of some older generations forcing their grandchildren to 'hate' the Japs).
Quistis88
My grandparents hate the "Japs" and it's just funny the way they refer to them as such when the subject arises.
Guest
Yea, my father (who is old enough to be my grandfather) hates the Japs because of WWII. But he also hates whites and Mexicans.
Mike
I'm probably the only one who's Australian ( I think theres a bit of italian in there to)

My mom was born in japan and lived there for 18 years. Unfortunantly, I was born in america because my mom decided to go to america... DAMN IT!
~FMAgurl~
I don't think can pass for Asian, but there is tiny little bit of me that is...because my great-grandfather was from China...but that's as much as I know. Other than that i was born in America dry.gif
Quistis88
All Look Same

laugh.gif See how you do on the test.
mei_tenshi
I only got three right. I guess I'm pretty indiscriminate.
hitokiri
i guess this was one of those threads i missed in my absence, so here goes:

100% chinese, with family records that go back over 30 generations. my family, on my father's side, was one of the most dominant family's in the an hwei for over 12 generations before the communists. we were primarily military men that were also doctors and politicians. our 19 generations of military service ended at my grandfathers generation, when we were forced to flee to taiwan and my grandfather died of a disease contracted when the allies forced the chinese to fight in india. the family fortune was lost and my grandmother, a woman born to privledge that never worked a day in her life, was left penniless and with 11 children. after that there came a new rule in the chen family, anyone who joins the military gets disowned.

my mother's side are of one of the first families that went to taiwan from fu jian. they were primarily landowners and businessmen. there really aren't any interesting stories on this side of the family, except maybe the fact that most of downtown taipei was owned by her side of family at one point or another.

i personally was born in taipei, taiwan and came to the us at the age of 1.
