Are Chinese and Asian people the same?
Chinese refer to people from China or have ancestors whom originate from China. Asians are people who are from Asia. While Chinese are asians, asians are not necessarily Chinese.
No, Chinese and Vietnamese are not the same. They are much different. Chinese people are not Vietnamese people unless they are Vietnamese and Chinese. The Chinese and the Vietnamese are two separate ethnic groups, although they are both Asian. A comparison would be the French and the German, who are separate ethnic groups but are both European.
There is no important difference genetically between Asian people and white or darker skinned people. We are all essentially the same genetically, as if we all came from the same genetic stock. The Asian people's merely have a little extra fat deposited around the eye which gives it a somewhat narrower appearance. That is all.
All Chinese are Asian, but not all Asian's are Chinese. There are 47 countries in Asia. Asian is a race, Chinese is an ethnicity, and Asia is a location. To say all Asians are Chinese is similar to saying all Europeans are British. There are lots of ethnicities that are considered Asian. Get it? I guess its confusing a little bit. Did you know that even though Chinese is considered an ethnicity, China itself has…
Only ignorant people would assume every Asian person is Chinese as opposed to Japanese, Korean, Mongolian, Taiwanese, Vietnamese, Cambodian, Laotian, Yupik Eskimo, etc. In addition, it would be very ignorant to assume that all of them do the same thing; just as ignorant as saying all white people do the same thing. Ignorant people would not have heard of some of the lesser-populated countries.
India is an Asian country because in this sense we are talking about geography. In the same way Egypt is an African country and Russia can be considered an European country as well as an Asian country. Racially it would depend on where you are from; the United States and Canada share a similar racial usage of the word Asian as opposed to the British. Since Indians, Iranians, Egyptians, etc. are classified as Caucasoids by…
Cracker First of all there is no "Asian language" there are multitudes of Asian languages because obviously people do not speak the same language in the several different Asian countries. Since I speak Cantonese (a Chinese dialect), I'll tell you the Cantonese term for white people which is roughly phonetically pronounced "guey low" which roughly translates to "ghost guy", cuz since you know, (you have white skin).
Most are dirty, loud, and obnoxious. Japs and Koreans hate the Chinese- however the Chinese love Koreans and their music specifically. The Chinese also have a long rivalry going way back to the time when the Japanese broke away from the Chinese culture. Koreans and Japanese people originally came from the ancient Asian empires.
There is no language called "Asian." Asia is a continent, and people who live there are called Asians. In Asia, there are people who speak Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese, Korean, Cambodian, and other languages. Each of them has a different way of saying "yes." In Mandarin Chinese, for example, the word is: Shi 是 . In Cantonese Chinese, it is haih 係 (Actually neither Mandarin nor Cantonese have a specific word for "yes" or "no." They…
