Australia is part of Oceania. Like Samoa and Soloman Islands.


DeadDoener

And Palau and Tuvalu and Nauru


Maciston1

And Oceania is all inseparable Chinese territory as it has been for thousands of years.


3dumbWorrier

Don't forget Africa and the America's. Also Europe has Chinese roots. The Ancient Colony of Wee Waa was founded 10,000 before the Ancient Greeks by Emperor Magnus Alpha Ping Ping before the arrival of Europeans from Africa. Our Greatest Chairman hence demands return of Europe to China.


Mikfinity

Sounds interesting, do you have a link to where I can learn more about it?


ffctpittman

In the past races were much less localized , anchor the Chinese manuscripts report tall blond haired people on there western border. But timogen kinda homogenized Mongolia


alban228

Are you Chinese ?


SamGropler

Australia isn't part of Asia.


NOPE9898

That's Oceania

YeetoBurritosbaby

A country between India, Bangladesh, China, Laos and Thailand


Spartan-teddy-2476

It’s the country that kinda looks like a quadrilateral with a tail on this map (Under China)


YeetoBurritosbaby

Yea. It looks like a THICC shuriken with a tail, which seems to be thrown by China (probably to India but it looks like the assassination attempt failed)


RickHavok

knifuser

I feel like south west Asia should be its own continent honestly.


Hultis_66

The Middle East should be it’s own continent IMO


knifuser

I mean the middle East and India are their own subcontinents. I think if you put them together on their own continent then they should be a decent counterweight to South east Asia.


woaily

Middle East Asia


sexy-melon

Or regular Asia. Like regular size Rudy.


JollyGreen615

What do we do with Russia then?

Idk, can't we just sink it already? Surely we don't need all of it?

Excuse me! I’m of the 5 or so Americans that know Mongolia exists and WE INCLUDE THAT TOO! 🇺🇸🦅💣💲

I'm American, and I lived in Mongolia for a few years. When people find out they say "oooh how was Africa??"

In Mongolia?


NeedyErratic

Yep


phoenix_master42

I am also one of these 5 Americans


suspicious_cabbage

Me too. I played Risk as a kid


sonickid101

I'm pretty sure we include Burma, Bhutan, and Nepal as Asia as well as Mongolia


Ross230780

They changed it to Myanmar, part of a rebranding exercise or something


Sneaky_aa12

Burma is how Bri'ish calls Myanmar. I am from there and I don't even know the flipping difference


ramblerjw

And those of us really in the know include Pakistan, India, Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq, Syria, Turkey and well a whole list of others that are in Asia as well.


Trainmodeler8888

M- mongo- Mongolia? What’s that?


Zoakeeper

People get mad at me when I say Indians and Russians are Asians. It’s as if they have never thought of it before.


TheEarlOfCamden

Tbf while most Russian land is in Asia, the vast majority of Russians live in the European part.


No_Driver_1502

Ethnic Russians mostly do, but Russian citizens of other ethnicities also live on Asia.


SleepyLad_

I mean India is obv Asian but I can understand if someone would call Russia "European".


TGD_745

Russia is more European than asian, most people live in the European part and I think Russian culture is closer to other European cultures rather than Asian cultures.


Wise-Finding9444

Russia is like, It's own continent...


alt-art-natedesign

I've never heard of people thinking India isn't in Asia. Russia on the other hand... That said, doesn't the vast majority of Russia's population live west of the Urals?

TomorrowWaste

You should have told her most of middle east is in Asia too.


_Bisky

>A girl from undergrad told me they thought India was in the Middle East not Asia Isn't the middle east on the asian continent, too for the most parts?


Incredibad0129

Tbh that's a surprisingly low number to me. At least in the southern US I think way to many people can't tell the difference between someone from the middle East and India


Kursem_v2

even Russia own most of Northern Asia land, that doesn't mean they're Asian. majority of them (90%) lives in Europe region, and most of northern Asia are barren, waste land. even then, those who lives in the Asian part are from Europe either, so they're white caucasian. it's like calling Australian natives are white people and not the Aborigins.


LuvYouLongTimeAgo

Russian spans 12 time zones and borders North Korea and Norway, so I wouldn’t classify ethnic Russians as Asian.


BoiMan-inc

To be fair, a tiny bit of Russia is in Europe but they probbably don’t know that either since they get mad at you for knowing where Russia is on the map


Catinus

But majority of Russian population are in Europe


[deleted]

People get mad at me when I call Elon an African American.


oldirishfart

I too laugh at this joke. Of course, he’s also Canadian African, but then Canada is also in America so perhaps the term “American African” is more appropriate :)


Imaginary-Cup-8426

Russians mostly live in the European part of Russia, and the culture is far more European than Asian.


skirtblat

I thought these were the countries missing along with the obvious Mongolia. What I didn't realize is all of the middle east is considered as a as well. Then I thought to myself where the fuck else did I think it belonged...


Zealousideal_Talk479

Isn’t Russia a European country?


big-bruh-boi

Both


gari381ns

Russians are Europeans. Did owning a large portion of Africa make British American? No. Same for Russian.


SmellMyJeans

Wait til they hear about Israel


Dotorandus

Russia started in europe, and most russians still live in europe... all of russia's asian territory is basically an imperialistic colony, just not over the seas, but over the mountain and still reachable with dry feet...


CDdragon9

Some dont even get this far...for some asia is only japan,china and korea


LiQuidCraB

I think they are associated with race and not geography that's why.


NoMoneyNoV-Bucks

Feel like race isnt the correct word here, maybe ethnicity


qwertpz

exactly. most of the time “asians” are only those originating from east asian countries. middle east is also part of asia though.


CDdragon9

Middle east is often overlooked indeed. And a lot of people (not just americans) dont even know about the central-asian countries.


qwertpz

they might be confused with all the “tan”


Kiki_Lpt

Or that Israel or even Jesus was technically "Asian"


Leinad_Aropmaca

And Philippinos are Latin american


Kiki_Lpt

It's **FILIPINOS**. We don't call Americans as **UNITED STATES OF AMERICANOS** Fckknn American. And we're a hybrid nation. A lot of us look Hispanic while a big chunk of our culture is a mix of Pan-Asian, Chinese, Japanese, Spanish and American.


sherbetty

Bro, you don't have to be such a dillhole correcting someone making an honest mistake. Being ignorant is not the same as being bigoted.


Late47

Or Pilipino which is also correct just not as used since its the local spelling instead of Spanish. They are both traced to the same Greek name "Φίλιππος"


Kiki_Lpt

Although technically correct, it's more an old and outdated usage mainly used by local Filipinos especially the old generation who still had some of the Spanish influence.


Late47

For sure, I just remembered learning it from my family that married in from there. They had a house over here and about 10 miles of beach property out in the Philippines so I learned a bit from them when I visited


Lion_Pancakes

Thanks for educating me


Overall-Slice7371

Honestly though, we should be called Americanos. Sounds dope. It's Americano now! Fuckn philipinnos...


Puzzleheaded-Land803

wait so no india pakistan or bangladesh? no middle east?


Clonedestroyer

India is not in Asia bro. Are you not American or something?


artemisfowl888

Whelp, all this time I thought I was an asian was wrong I guess. If i listen to fuckin Americans.


vegetableIII

Most probably don’t think of them as Asian since India is a subcontinent and the Middle East is more like an area, still technically in Asia tho


zahirano

Inaccurate,never heard my country mentioned in media except mh370.


Maximumnuke

Wait, why wouldn't Mongolia be yellow?


NinjaGuy225

Reddit finna fuckin flip when they find out that we do learn the fucking continents, and the countries, and \*gasp\* sometimes even the capitals!


tyroneluvsmom

Nah bro the joke is that we tend to only call 'asian' people Asian. Like a brown guy would be called a brown guy and not an Asian guy even though he might come from a country that's in Asia. For example if I said "hey, look at that Asian guy" and then pointed at an Indian you might be confused by why I chose that wording.


BeginningOccasion8

Nah just keep letting them make stuff up to get mad at


zanderman108

Another shitty ‘America dumb’ post. Yes, because the dumbest people in America are oh so special compared to the dumbest people from every other country. Stupid is stupid regardless of country. We don’t need more glib america hate when we have tyrants actively raping other nations.


afraidofmonstergirls

Americans bad (Because msnbc told me so)


ChaoticBraindead

Yeah, ngl, I'm from Hong Kong but I still constantly have to look up what continent most countries are, I know like 6 asian countries and the rest I'd probably have to look up. Y'all acting like every citizen of every other country has an encyclopedic knowledge of the world, as if we don't have better stuff to do.


Hot_b0y

Yeah as a Filipino i didn't even know Japan existed until i was like, 9. So all the Japanese stuff I've watched? Yeah, i thought it was from China. And my Japanese friend? I thought he was from China too, i only knew when i read up on the Chinese and Japanese language difference.

sin_aim

Asian , I have come to realise overtime is used just so the Occidental world can say slant eyed people without any guilt. It's the only reason why India , middle east and Russia and Central Asia is not included in it.


Kursem_v2

Russia are more closely related to Europe than Asia. their northern Asia land are mostly barren, waste land where it's people came from Europe either and very small natives population.


DerpyMistake

That's what happens when we're only allowed to use one word to describe a region, race, and a culture - people use it to create a Venn diagram of all three.


TheJoninCactuar

Tbf in Britain it used to be the inverse of this if you are looking pre-80s. Indians, Pakistanis, Bangladeshis etc. were Asians. Afghanis, Iranians, Syrians etc. were Arabs. Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Thai etc. were Orientals. The word oriental was deemed offensive at some point I guess but I'm not sure why. It just means "from the East" etymologically. I think part of the problem though is it came to be synonymous with being exotic and mystical, which could be found a bit patronising.


Which_Sleep8955

When I first immigrated to Canada from China. I was referring to Iran as an Asian country, and I got made fun of because Iran in not in Asia, it is in the Middle East. Anyways, education in NA is astonishingly failing it's people.


I_likechickennugget

Turkey, Syria, Lebanon, Israel, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Oman, UAE, Qatar, Kuwait, Bahrain, Iraq, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Russia, Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Mongolia, China, north Korea, South Korea, Japan, Taiwan, Vietnam, Philippines, Laos, Cambodia, Thailand, Myanmar, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, East Timor, Bangladesh, India, Bhutan, Nepal, Pakistan, Iran, Afghanistan, Brunei. Boom, I'm American and just did that without outside help. I might have missed a few but that's still a lot. See Americans aren't all stupid.


Wise-Finding9444

I'm American and I consider Mongolia to be Asian. Russia is it's own continent to me considering it's the size of Pluto.


MaskyDo

same about Asians. America is just US :)

This is not true whatsoever. Who ever made this doesn't know anything.


Bigpotatozzzz

Nah bro I would of included Myanmar since there race is more like how Americans think all Asians look


The-Unknown-C

This is actually why I instead say “East Asian” or “South Asia” because Asia is big.


Bond6580

Yall probably don't know Russia is a part of the aisian continent. Actually that entire continent is called Eurasia. The only reason why people consider it Asia and Europe are becuase of ideas like "culture". Not exactly like the Americas but I'm sure the argument could be made.


JeremyTheRhino

Don’t be ridiculous. Obviously we include… whatever that country on the left is. Cambodia? Idk

“Wait philippines is in asia? I thought it was a state”


AXX214

Huh? I’m American and I don’t understand why what this is supposed to be joking about. I’ve never met an American who didn’t know the continent of asia.


LucienSatanClaus

When americans call something Asian they are usually talking about things or people from East & Southeast Asia (but mostly East Asia - i.e. China, Japan, Korea). There are 3 other regions in Asia as well like South Asia , Cental Asia, West Asia (aka Middle East), etc.


AXX214

Ah that

Nikas_intheknow

False. Most Americans do not even register the Philippines, Taiwan, Indonesia, or any of the islands exist.


jasonobi

I think you give Americans too much credit. I'm willing to be most of them have never seen this part of the map.

crypto_chan

what the FUCK.


BedrockPanda

There's a difference between the continent of Asia and what is considered culturally Asia. Usually India/Bangladesh/Pakistan are not considered such because they have had so much influence from the Middle East. They are generally considered their own region and culture. The same way Central America is usually more associated with Latin America than with North America. They may be on the same continent as the US and Canada, but they are more similar to South America, culturally. I've always considered Myanmar and Mongolia to be Asian, though.


laminatedjoe

Excuse my ignorance but what other countries are in Asia?


LiQuidCraB

Bangladesh, Burma, India, Sri lanka, Bhutan, Maldives, Mongolia, Russia, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq, Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan and few other middle eastern countries Saudi, oman, etc are also asain.


I_eat_mud_

If we’re counting Russia you should count Turkey too since both countries are mostly seen as European but have land that spans both Europe and Asia.


Akash3642

Russia's culture is more European and the majority of their population lives in Europe while Turkey's culture is more Asian

all the asian continent? haha
