MDR This question should be asked a lot. This seems to be a difficult concept for many people. It is important to understand the differences between geography, race, ethnicity, culture, history and humanity. 4,000 years ago, Malaysians from the Thai region were good sailors and settled mostly in Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, and then in the Pacific islands such as Tahiti, New Zealand, Hawaii, etc. Therefore, we can say that all these people, including the Philippines and the Pacific Islands, were of the same Malay Austronesian descent.
Geographically, there are dictionaries and other authorities that describe the Philippines as a separate list of islands in Asia and the Pacific, if you want to believe these sources. Culturally, the Philippines was once again a Pacific island nation and now, like most Asians, it is because other Asian countries are Western.
The US Census is conducted every 10 years and this month. There are several types of census forms, including: Asia, the Philippines, and the Pacific Islands. It is noteworthy that the Philippines is a separate category in the US census, as the Philippines represents 1.5% of the total US population.
Oh boy ... come on as I always say, every time someone asks ... your ASI balance is wrong. I've been playing here for over a decade, because we don't have anyone over 68 who can play ball.
You're right and it's a shame that some people know they're all from the Philippines (which makes me wonder if they've ever been here). As we are Filipinos, you know we are ASIA both geographically and anthropologically. The Pacific islands are inhabited by Polynesia, Melanesia and Micronesia. so easy.
I think the reason for some of these ignorant lower-level Filipinos' identity crisis is that they don't have the slightest Hispanic or Hispanic blood, so they don't respect the morals of the Filipino people. They are so many brothers that they cannot ignore our Asian heritage and easily make mistakes in Malaysia for the Pacific islands.
Of course we are Asian because we are with the Asian continent! Like Europeans, we are descendants of Asians because they live or have come from continental Europe. It is called Filipino because it is our nationality, as well as Anis, Essence, Korean, Vietnamese, etc. But we are all Asian because we are from the same geographical area called Asia. The Philippines is not a race, it is a nation. The Pacific islands are named because they do not live on the Asian continent, but are more or less on small islands off the coast of the Pacific, such as Goem, Tahiti, Samoa, etc. The Philippines is really big for the island. . The same Philippines. The Philippines is of Malay descent, mainly from Southeast Asia, such as Indonesia, Burma, Malaysia, etc. Some races coincide with European ancestry. Why is it so hard to understand that you can't become a Korean African to call yourself Asian? Do not be silly! The Philippines is not a race, it is a nation.
I am Filipino, born and raised in the 50th state of Hawaii in the United States. So, I'm the first American! MI was born in the Philippines, an island in the Pacific Ocean, and became a U.S. citizen when he moved to Seattle, WA.
Asia: The largest continent in the Eastern Hemisphere is separated from Northern Europe by the Ural Mountains. Little Asia: A peninsula of West Asia, between the Mediterranean and the Mediterranean, which includes most of Asian Asia! Thinking about it, I consider myself an island in the Pacific Ocean! This is definitely not Turkey! Unfortunately, nowadays, many people do not refer to Eastern beliefs and I mean that if you, like ASIAT, would understand your impressions about the feature of the eye, which is not entirely correct by definition. Is. Then there is Oriental: Oriental de Orient, which means people or their culture who change while living in the Orient or become members of a society in the region. East: East, Far East, Anti-West!
Hawaiian culture has grown from the 1950s to the present day and I now live in Southern California, and with all that information, I will always consider myself a Pacific Islander! Never ASIAT!
Whenever I see this question, I laugh because it is the most common question.
I think many of you Filipinos think you're Asian or Pacific because your ancestors were Hawaiians, Guam and other parts of the United States.
