Skippety wanted me to share this video with the SAPL community:

“Thought you’d find this funny & insightful for your blog. Do Indians, like Philipinos, count? :)

    Filipinos and Indians should not count. Asian, in this sense, does not actually literally mean with origins anywhere the Asian continent. The connotation in America is eastern Asian which generally means Northeast Asian and some, but not all, southeast Asians.

    “The connotation in America is eastern Asian which generally means Northeast Asian and some, but not all, southeast Asians.”

    If this is the case, why don’t they just change the name of this blog into STUFF-EASTERN ASIAN-PEOPLE-LIKE?

    “some, but not all, southeast Asians”? Now that’s a bit racist if you ask me. Asians living in outside of Asia keep complaining about being victims of racism when in fact this very blog is a prime example of one Asian race seemingly trying to be superior over others.

    Just because we are of darker-colored skin doesn’t make us Asians anymore. Our cultures are similar to those of Eastern Asians/North Asians.

    If fellow Asians don’t consider Indians, Filipinos and other Southeast Asians as Asians, then they are very ignorant, indeed.

    And I thought Asians are supposed to be smart because of the mentality of “must-get-A’s”

    if you’ve read, we consider all asian races asian. our submissions have covered traditions in east, west, north, and south asia. We also have a section on filipino things as well. please read before making a dumbfounded assertion.
