Asian people or Asiatic people is a demonym for people from Asia. However, the use of the term varies by country and person, often referring to people from a particular region or subregion of Asia. Though it may be based on residence, it is also often considered a race or an ethnicity. In North America, the term refers most commonly to people of predominantly East Asian and Southeast Asian ancestry; however, in the United Kingdom and Anglophone Africa, the term refers most commonly to South Asians. In other countries, the term is applied in a wider sense to all people from Asia or from a number of its regions. In the United States, however, Middle Eastern and Central Asian people are usually not considered "Asian."
/TG/ cares about asians for a few reasons:
- Asians include the Japanese; the art, culture, and weaponry of the Japanese are worshipped by weeaboos, who often invade /tg/ with their "Am I kaiwaii? Is my art kaiwaii?" and "desu" type faggotries.
- Chinese and Koreans, the former invented too many things advance for their era; such as crossbows that fire like machine guns, rocket launchers (considered to be the first MLRS in history),
first prototypes of printing pressthe first operating movable type printing workshops and even a fucking life-sized automaton in the medieval period no less...they are mostly considered the Romans/Greeks of Asia then the Japanese and Mongolians Goths/Barbarian hordes.
- Fun historical fact: After the Renaissance this trend entirely reversed, as artistic clockwork automata (think those fancy German clock towers with the little dudes that come out and do little routines every hour) became just about the only thing Europe produced that China was actually slightly interested in. Except maths and astronomy.
- Asians are the
real-world equivalentcomplete fucking opposite of elves. Damn weeaboo.
