    Should probably change the title to will Asians dominate the CFC.

    How does Indian and Russian count as Asian? I guess you could make the case for some russians though.

    Since their are roughly 3.7 Billion people in Asia and this is 56% of the worlds population, and there are technological revolutions going on in many of the historically more backward countries(sounds non politicaly correct but you know what I mean) I'd imagine yeah eventually they probably will, but since the PC use of Asia compare to the rest of the world is currently fairly low, about a half of the rest of the world, it'll be a while before this happens. Asia as a continent is everywhere but Europe, Africa, Australasia, North&South America and Antarctica. Israel, Turkey and Iran and the Saudis are also Asian.

    EDIT:

    Asian means coming from the continent of Asia the countries this comprises are outlined in the above post :D

    China =/= Asia.

    A lot of non-Chinese Asians (I could identify a few Japanese, Vietnamese, Koreans, Singaporeans, Malaysians, Indonesians, Indians, Iranians etc. on this forum) are going to be offended by the thread title. :lol: Change it ASAP.

    @Snow
    Yes Indians are Asian. South Asian to be precise.

    I'm 0% Asian. I imagine eventaully Asians will come to dominate the internet, since there's so many of them, but it'll be awhile before the internet becomes as available to the average Chinese or Indian or Russian citizen on the level that it is to the average American or European citizen.

    Well lot of people live in Asia... so actually people from asia are underrepresented.

    Snow- he meant, I think, people by geography, not ethnicity. Indians are still mostly europoid.

    Exactly. Our country is European, even through "Eastern" whether people like it or not. I say the thread starter is uniformed and possibly xenophobic.

    What's with China equaling Asia? Anyway, Asians in Asia have websites with their own languages I'd assume.

    And why include the bit about India and Russia counting? So do Pakistanis, Afghans, Iranians, Saudis, Turks, etc.

    If you wanted to know wouldnt it have made more sense for you to make this a public poll.

    I don't know how 'Russian' can count as Asian, unless you mean Rusians from east of the Urals, but you really should specify, I have a couple or Russian friends who I think of as European.

    Plus given that India has a pupulation of 1 billion i think it's rather inaccurate to class them as Chinese:crazyeye:

    Well, since they look white, they can't be Asians. Here's another shocking tidbit, Jews are Asians too! Asians is one of the most worthless descriptions around..

    EDIT: whoops, got carried away. Israelites and Palestinians are Asians. Anyway, the whole thing gets confusing..

    I am not sure if I am Asian. Does Armenian count as Asian? If so, then I am 1/4 asian.
