The word 'Asian' is very ambiguous anyway. Many people seem to use it in Britain to mainly mean 'people of the Indian subcontinent' whereas in the US it mainly means 'people of Chinese descent or the countries surrounding China in SE Asia'. Also, Asia is a huge continent and includes all sorts of people not even regarded in normal conversation here as 'Asian'.
Personally I think we should stop using 'Asian' to describe people, at least until people start making the effort to accurately identify where people are from and think about the subject.

We're not allowed to say certain words so we group y'all together under the ones we can.
Plus, Asian is less hassle to say than middle eastern.. like kiwis, yanks, brits.
