You hate it when people describe Chinese/Japanese/Korean people as Asian as Asia is a continent which also included Pakistan, Iraq, etc, amirite?

People from the US are the only ones referred to as Americans even though Canada and Mexico are also on North America. Also, South American people aren't called Americans either although they are on the continent South America.

Depends where you go, Asian in North America refers to more East (China, Japan, Korea) /Southeast Asia (Philippines, Vietnam, Indonesia, Malaysia). In the UK, Asian refers to more South Asian (India, Bangdalesh) and Middle Eastern (Iran, Iraq, Saudia Arabia, any country rich in oil basically)

I've always found it really odd, but it's true that we don't call people from USA "North Americans", maybe we all should :P
