    this has to be a joke. there is no ''hot take'' about it, that's like saying the arabs are asians. i don't think you know what the word ''asian'' means. time to put the geography book back in the shelf

    Yikes. The Belarusian TV stations that had been broadcasting empty studios and joined the strike.

    Well apparently planeloads of Russians are now employed to run the media...

    alright, this is getting ridiculous. i don't know whether some are confused or not but here goes an undeserved effort by me for something so obvious. the confusion and inaccuracy of identifying oneself based on their geographic destination (asia aka the continent) and then mixing it up with the racial identity behind the term (asians aka that certain kind of people) can be at best, described as ignorance, and i'm gonna let the worst description to your imagination. Because it ignores the difference of the specific kind of people named after the term and the continent where they live.

    parallelly, one can say they are from africa, specifically north africa. where surprise suprise, people are actually white.
    Spoiler:
    yet it wouldn't be accurate to say those people are ''the african people''. as the term ''african people'' is generally and conventionally used for sub saharan africans. to put it in ABC, asian is used for mongoloid people, white for Caucasian. we just don't use the latter terms anymore because of their racist historicity. shouldn't have slept in the history class. and SO, you should have read that wiki, before posting it randomly.
    Although many countries use the term 'Asian' referring to people living on that continent, in reality, Asian usually refers to peoples of East, Southeast, and South Asia. Inhabitants of Southwest Asia, such as Arabs and Iranians, are more commonly designated Middle Easterners.3 The term Asian as used in this article refers to people from Asia who have a Mongoloid background (Chinese, Japanese, Koreans, Vietnamese, Filipinos, Indonesians, and others

    Indians from India are absolutely Asians. That's why this poor soul had to pretend to be black: http://almostblack.com/ Just to make it in a society that clearly plays favorites.

    i already explained this above, i'm not gonna repeat myself. but short answer is no, if you are gonna make indians as part of the asian people, you may as well make middle easterners too as well. otherwise, it's just arbitrary.

    ''middle easterners = west asians''. still the same thing

    The part you quoted is one person's opinion regarding an article of theirs?

    I have no idea where you're from, but the majority of the article discusses who the term refers to varies by country but a great many of then can refer to Indians from India as some qualified variant of Asian.
    I ain't quoting all the parts of that entry that say that, because that's a lotta quotes.

    isn't it weird that Native Americans claim to be "Native" "American" while in fact they migrated from Asia? next they're going to partake in settler colonialism to show that they're real Americans!

    Spoiler:
    Karen T. Taylor (2001), forensic art professor at the FBI Academy, said that the term "Asian-derived" is a modern-day euphemism for the "Mongoloid race" and it includes "Native Americans" and "various Asian groups"
    Eugťnia Maria Guedes Pinto Antunes da Cunha (2006), of the Department of Anthropology, University of Coimbra, said there has been a modern trend in "most of the forensic anthropology literature" to "rename" the term "Mongoloid", a term in which she includes the "North American Indian", with the term "Asian" or "Asiatic". Da Cunha said that, even though the "terminology" has changed, the "underlying assumptions are the same"
    Jun Kyung-ran et al. (2007), of the Department of Laboratory Medicine, University of Ulsan, used the term "Asian populations" for the group he also referred to as the "Asian-Mongoloid" in which he included Japanese, Korean, Chinese and Thai for a meta-analysis of alleles in relation to rheumatoid arthritis
    A 2009 book about forensic anthropology said that the "leading handbook in human osteology" has kept on using the "traditional terms"' of "caucasoid, mongoloid, negroid", but "one of the most popular recent forensic anthropology textbooks" has changed to the "more current, politically correct terminology of Asian, white, black, Native American
    Masniari Novita (2006), of the Biomedical Department of Jember University, said "Asiatics" are part of the "Mongoloid" race while "Asians from the Indian Subcontinent" are part of the "Caucasian" race
    Angelo N. Ancheta (2006), of the School of Law at Santa Clara University, said that the term "Asian" is an imprecise term. Ancheta questioned if the term "Asian" describes a category which is geographical or a category which is biological/appearance-based. Ancheta questioned where does Asia start and end, if the term "Asian" is geographical. Ancheta said that there is a continuum along which physical appearance operates, but there exist differences which are noticeable among groups. Ancheta said that an immigrant from Japan may not look like an immigrant from India
    Luigi Luca Cavalli-Sforza (1994) referred to both "Asian Caucasoids" and "Mongoloids" in Asia which he also called "other Asians" as encompassing "Asian populations". Cavalli-Sforza also referred to "Amerinds" as being the "aboriginal Asian group" of the Americas
    Norman J. Sauer (1992), of the Department of Anthropology at Michigan State University, said that, in forensic anthropology, modern race identification studies have to do with some combination of the "Big Three": the "White", the "Black," and the "Asiatic," with the Asiatic including American Indians.


    no pb, i got you covered. as you can see, spoilers tho, most cited scholarly at the wiki you posted agree with the conventional wisdom. and again, most countries don't use the term ''asian' pan continentally.

    at this point, this is not even about turkish people not being asians, you are just trying to screw logic. in4 no one is native to any place because humans always migrated.

    what's embarrassing is taking that seriously. so i don't blame anyone who's laughing out at this ridiculous talk

    As if Lukashankyou ever cared what the EU thought. I'd be warier of what Putin thinks of him since he's the one with the actual money and power to hang him.

    it's not about whether he cares or not though. it's about how this is the first time for him where the EU is now actively and effectively challenging him and will oppose him while as russia wants belarus to intergrate with it in its ''union state'' which luken resisted since belarusians are against the idea of Moscow centralizing their country affairs and sovereignty

    I'm confused. A freeze on property tax increases means it will be easier to own a home in these places. Meaning more people will want to love there. How is that a bad thing?

    Basically, it cuts down on the finances of the city's government. It is a way to cut down the city's funding.
