yeah, apologies for being vague. you're right, americans do tend to mean East Asian when they say Asian. Has then been any reported rise in anti-East Asian violence over there?
Not that I know of, but I wouldn't be surprised.

Depends what you mean by "Asian". I've found that in America it tends to mean East Asian. There's a fair-sized British Chinese population (many from HK, of course), but it's dwarfed by the South Asian population.

to complicate the Asian identity even more, I'm technically West Asian, but as that is neither recognised by the UK and US establishments as being legitimately Asian I'm middle eastern (read: terrorist.)
