It’s juste a map of china according to china
Regular 'nam dude: fuck
If Philippines not part of Asia then I guess Taiwan ain’t either
Australia is part of Oceania. Like Samoa and Soloman Islands.
And Palau and Tuvalu and Nauru
And Oceania is all inseparable Chinese territory as it has been for thousands of years.
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.
Sounds interesting, do you have a link to where I can learn more about it?
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
Are you Chinese ?
Australia isn't part of Asia.
This guy morbs
whats china? I thought it was taiwan
Taiwan is Chinese for "North Pole." It's where all the Christmas toys are made.
Closest to Japan in ww2
What? Are you trying to say China is imperialistic?! How dare you?! There is no room for the truth on the web!
yes south east asia
But where is Myanmar? 😢
Too busy doing another coup
And a civil war.
what the fuck is a Myanman
A country between India, Bangladesh, China, Laos and Thailand
It’s the country that kinda looks like a quadrilateral with a tail on this map (Under China)
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)
I am Mayanman... Duh... nuh... nuh nuh nuh
I feel like south west Asia should be its own continent honestly.
The Middle East should be it’s own continent IMO
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.
Middle East Asia
Or regular Asia. Like regular size Rudy.
What do we do with Russia then?
Idk, can't we just sink it already? Surely we don't need all of it?
Happy cake day!
We don't need any 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??"
but seriously how was africa?
Quite fine thank you
Does it rain holy water there?
I bless the rains down in Africa.
did he answered by PM?
Quite a good country ☕️
I lived in Portugal for a while and Americans kept asking me “how South America was” and if I “learned Spanish while I was there”
As we all know, the Mongolian Empire came from Africa.
How many years?
Was there any religious purpose to your stay?
You bet your boots. I went full mormon
Lol, just wondering. I’m also Mormon and had a hunch. That is all
I am also one of these 5 Americans
Me too. I played Risk as a kid
I'm pretty sure we include Burma, Bhutan, and Nepal as Asia as well as Mongolia
They changed it to Myanmar, part of a rebranding exercise or something
Burma is how Bri'ish calls Myanmar.
I am from there and I don't even know the flipping difference
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.
M- mongo- Mongolia? What’s that?
People get mad at me when I say Indians and Russians are Asians. It’s as if they have never thought of it before.
Tbf while most Russian land is in Asia, the vast majority of Russians live in the European part.
Ethnic Russians mostly do, but Russian citizens of other ethnicities also live on Asia.
I mean India is obv Asian but I can understand if someone would call Russia "European".
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.
Russia is like, It's own continent...
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?
You should have told her most of middle east is in Asia too.
>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?
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
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.
Russian spans 12 time zones and borders North Korea and Norway, so I wouldn’t classify ethnic Russians as Asian.
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
But majority of Russian population are in Europe
People get mad at me when I call Elon an African American.
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 :)
Russians mostly live in the European part of Russia, and the culture is far more European than Asian.
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...
Isn’t Russia a European country?
Russians are Europeans. Did owning a large portion of Africa make British American? No. Same for Russian.
Wait til they hear about Israel
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...
Some dont even get this far...for some asia is only japan,china and korea
I think they are associated with race and not geography that's why.
Feel like race isnt the correct word here, maybe ethnicity
exactly. most of the time “asians” are only those originating from east asian countries. middle east is also part of asia though.
Middle east is often overlooked indeed.
And a lot of people (not just americans) dont even know about the central-asian countries.
they might be confused with all the “tan”
Or that Israel or even Jesus was technically "Asian"
And Philippinos are Latin american
We don't call Americans as **UNITED STATES OF AMERICANOS**
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.
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.
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"
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.
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
Thanks for educating me
Honestly though, we should be called Americanos. Sounds dope.
It's Americano now!
wait so no india pakistan or bangladesh? no middle east?
India is not in Asia bro. Are you not American or something?
Whelp, all this time I thought I was an asian was wrong I guess. If i listen to fuckin Americans.
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
Inaccurate,never heard my country mentioned in media except mh370.
Wait, why wouldn't Mongolia be yellow?
Reddit finna fuckin flip when they find out that we do learn the fucking continents, and the countries, and \*gasp\* sometimes even the capitals!
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.
Nah just keep letting them make stuff up to get mad at
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.
(Because msnbc told me so)
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.
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.
God I wish this kind of low tier comedy would just die. Like half the damn memes on this sub are American this or British people that
No no, sometimes we have German memes too
Inaccurate map, does not include Australia.
Oh, two can play at that game
No just a former employee of an America company, but well spotted sir.
This is honestly pretty generous
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
same about Asians. America is just US :)
I have a Muslim gf from Sri Lanka. She thought since I was from Texas I had a six shooter and horses and cowboy hat/gear so I don’t wanna hear it lol
Hahahaha!! Americans are so dumb!!!!! Idiots!!!!
dude we know all the asian countries cause we fight and supply with them all the dam time shut your depressed uncircumcised European ass up
Jarvis I’m running low on karma, Make a post about America
Only the dumb ones
as east asian I can confirm this is Asia according to east asians too
According to porn
This is not true whatsoever. Who ever made this doesn't know anything.
Nah bro I would of included Myanmar since there race is more like how Americans think all Asians look
This is actually why I instead say “East Asian” or “South Asia” because Asia is big.
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.
Don’t be ridiculous. Obviously we include… whatever that country on the left is. Cambodia? Idk
Americans are self centered dumb fucks
“Wait philippines is in asia? I thought it was a state”
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.
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.
'oH yOu'Re AsIaN?'
Not all of us. Granted most of us are absolute asscheecks at geography, but not all of us.
I don’t know what country OP is from, but it’s not just Americans. I’ve seen plenty of British people not be able to point out anything on the map as well.
False. Most Americans do not even register the Philippines, Taiwan, Indonesia, or any of the islands exist.
I think you give Americans too much credit. I'm willing to be most of them have never seen this part of the map.
Lol my friend's gf had a stroke trying to understand how can I be Indian and Asian at the same time while both my parents are Indian
You’re too generous, most people I’d ask don’t know Southeast Asia or Indonesia exist
This is hurting my brain
Fake. There's no way they'd put the Philippines there
To be fair, all of this IS in Asia.
I’ve never hated the coffee emoji so much in my life
I didn't know china was so big
Yes I should kill myself 'because I'm an American'
I want to end my lfie hahas'ls
i cant take this nmk aaanymoe
I cant do this shit anymore
I JUST WANT TO FUCKING YELL I CANT TAKE THIS IDK
As an American myself, I find this incredibly wrong and offensive. You included Laos and Cambodia which most of us don’t know exists.
THE PHILIPPINES LETS GO
Pretty sure everything on this map is in Asia.
nahhh bro thats romania
Oo I woulda gone way further left
what the FUCK.
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.
Excuse my ignorance but what other countries are in Asia?
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.
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.
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
Any country from west of Europe and Africa and north of Oceania.
Jesus was Asian.
#CHANGE MY MIND
It be like that tho
Also according to many europeans
America bad. Upvotes pls?
For many europeans and americans, asians are only the chinese, japanese and koreans lol
The fancy Asians.
Wrong, it's only China, Japan, and Korea
Water according to brits: 🍵 Guns according to Brit’s: 🗡 Loaf bread according to frenchies 🥐 Money according to Russians: All human people according to Germans: 👱🏻♂️ Freedoms according to North Koreans: Food according to Chin- nevermind that’s racist, um, Water according to A- that’s super racist nevermind, uh, Humans according to Vietnamese: 🌳
AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA * puff * * wheeze * ☕
Americans According to Asians: New York City and California.
You're forgetting Texas
When they don’t remember our countries, how can they expect us to remember their states?
Because we’re stupid and you guys are intelligent lol
as an indian i can confirm that my american friend had no idea i was asian and i was able to fool him by saying india is in middle east
im asian and i thought this was the whole of asia 😅
