    orientals are usually the ones people are referring to when they say "asians". If an asian in question is brown, they'll be politely referred to as "south asian" or "indian"

    But yeah, oriental Asians come to mind first

    Living very near to Bradford I default to 'brown people'.

    If you meant yellow people or browny-yellow people you'd need to specify that with East or South-east asian...

    Otherwise I assume south asian/persian/arab.

    Back in London it's brown people, in uni most people use it to refer to oriental people so now that's what I think first. If someone is brown just say indian or south asian.
