This is a wonderful app.
It’s just amazing how I can interact

with Chinese, Korean, and Japanese people and talk about various things.

Other people might be using this app because they might like wuxia, or they love K-pop, or might be into anime and manga.

But I’m mainly here to get raw Asian perspectives. Those things also help me better understand Asian America.

Here’s the thing: Asian Americans are intrinsically linked to Asia.

You see, we don’t call White Americans “Europeans”.
We don’t call Black Americans “Africans”.
But Asian Americans are still “Asians”.

So someone like me who wasn’t born in or even lived in Asia is still an Asian.
And I happily accept that.

And how Asian Americans are seen here is also an accumulation of how people view countries like China, Korea, and Japan.

That’s how we’re linked and that’s why I still want to share Asian American perspectives.

They may not be typical perspectives you would find from a foreigner, but I feel that makes such perspectives even more meaningful.

    そう言われてみると、日本では、自分達と見た目がかなり異なる白人や黒人を「外国人」と言いますが、黄色人種は「国の名前+人」と言うことが多いです。 自分達と似ていると、細かい違いがわかるので、細分化して呼ぶのではないでしょうか。 上記の理論から、大多数のアメリカ人(白人と黒人)と、アジア人は全く似ていない(小さい、細い、おとなしい等)ので、アジア人の中の細かい違いがわからず、みんな一つにしてアジア人と呼ぶのかと思いました。

    @yuki 「アジア系アメリカ人」は日系人の市岡裕次博士に作られた造語でした。アメリカに住んでいる南アジア系人と東アジア系人と南東アジア系人を含めるアイデンティティを作る必要がありました。この場合では、色によっての名前ではなく、地理的な名前にしたそうです。

    I've a question, why does the word "Asian" is always used to refer to Japanese, Chinese or Korean when there are so many countries in Asia and everyone who lives in Asia should be called Asian right?

    @루시다 It may differ across other English-speaking countries, but when people say “Asian”, they mainly mean East and Southeast Asians. I talked about it more here: https://www.hellotalk.com/m/rJMEW4yQRVR0ZD==?id=AbZ1pN
