    Some think we are "white like rice". Some think we are "yellow", and therefore "people of color".

    Or are we, "The Other White Meat" (aka "Pork")?

    Discuss.

    Asians are not "white like rice." They're simply "rice."

    Not white, more like a yellowish brown, or simply brown. I really how their skin looks and DAT ASS. What does white really mean though? A lot of people are classified as white but they are darker than some other people who are latino, black or asian. If you look at the classifications of humans there are three,Caucasoid, Mongoloid and Negroid. The scientific reason the "whites" with darker skin are called whites is because they fall under the caucasoid classification when looking at their skulls and certain other physical attributes. Chinese, Vietnamese, Japanese, these are all classified as monogoloid.

    "Knock, knock!"
    "Who's there?"
    "Yellow."
    "Yellow, who?"
    (Insert your favorite punch line here)

    ...outside of physical anthropology the term mongoloid is now often considered derogatory.

    The term colored generally means African American and it is outdated, racist, slang. I have never heard Asian people called colored or white. White = caucasian = European ancestry

    I thought "the other White Meat" was stuff like trout? Asians like fish right?

    dissociative saidMaybe if you keep starting these ridiculous threads, it will eventually happen.



    oooo, you gonna let him talk to you like that GAM RICAN?

    Besides, your name sounds like Puerto Rican. I know damn well you know that Puerto Rican has far more closer roots to Black than White.

    It just occurred to me that the OP might have intended to be sarcastic, in which case I feel like an ass. If that's the case, sorry icon_wink.gif


    All good. All the "Asians" threads are a running joke around here. Hang around long enough and you'll get to know all of the characters in the RJ court. icon_lol.gif

    "Asian" covers a pretty wide spectrum, including Pacific Islanders.

    Pretty much everything East of the Ural Mountains, and the Suez Canal.

    Asians comprise the majority of the population of the planet.
