All Asians are Chinese!
A little bit, anyway

Okay, so in the past few entries I’ve mentioned a couple things: one is the meaning behind my buddhist name “Lien Kim” (golden lotus), and the word love in Japanese (ai) and the background behind the meaning of my username “shi” which means four and death IN JAPANESE.

It also happens to mean all those things in chinese.

And a lot of chinese people have been telling me that those things are Chinese. Someone even asked me if I was SURE that those were the meanings in Japanese.

Excuse me, chinese people, let’s get this straight: ALL ASIAN LANGUAGES HAVE CHINESE INFLUENCES.

Just like European languages have Latin influences, we ALL have similar words with similar meanings.

To me, telling me a word in Japanese or Vietnamese sounds like a Chinese word is pretty much the same as telling me some random word in English comes from a Latin root word.

Uh, yeah. I KNEW that already.

I mean… as much as I don’t like to be called Chinese just because I’m Asian, I know we were all a part of China at some point or another. Come on now. I’ll bet even Eskimo language has words that are similar to Chinese words.

Okay, so let’s say it now:

All Asians are Chinese.

All white people look the same.

All black people look the same.

All mexican people look the same.

All jewish people look the same.

All middle eastern people look the same.

Saying that, take this test and tell me what you get:

My friend is Korean, I got a few right because I guessed on similar looks.They all look different, yet the same. And I actually got some right because of that, I think.

john said,

October 25, 2005 @ 11:58 am

yah, that’s especially true for written characters in japanese, korean, vietnamese. not sure the impact on the spoken language – i think it’s much less, but i’m not positive.

loldavelol said,

October 25, 2005 @ 12:10 pm

hah touche! i was one of the people who commented that kim lien is chinese.  not because i think all asians look alike or influenced by chinese, it was more because i didn’t know vietnamese enough.
i personally really don’t care which ethnicity someone is.  don’t know if that’s ignorance or if that’s tolerance.

glorycato said,

October 25, 2005 @ 12:13 pm

That’s hilarious.  It does piss me off though when people think all Asians look alike.  My mom is Thai and it pisses her off when people think she is Filipino because in our town, everyone Asian is Filipino so all the white people think they all look the same.  I guess it depends on what you’re used to seeing.  If you don’t see diversity, you’ll never know. 
That was a cool quiz too by the way.  It also told me All Asians dress better than anyone else.  ha ha

TheMiddleWay said,

October 25, 2005 @ 12:18 pm

I concur ma’am!  Results of me taking the test was 4 out of 20.  I’m surprised, I thought i’d get at least 5 haha.  Personally, I don’t know what I look like.  My ethnicity is lao and 1/8th chinese.  I don’t look exactly chinese yet i’m not like the typical lao person, well..I don’t think I do at least.  :X

siberians don’t look chinese :(indians don’t look chinese :(oh wait. are they even ASIAN? i always thought it was the same continent :Xmaybe it should’ve been clarified to “east asia”. russia is a huge ass part of asia, so.. i say CHINESE people don’t look asian. coz asia = mostly russia. and russians = white (colored). but population wise… that’s another story :Pit’s hard to tell if this post is sarcastic or serious. who knows!

everyone was conquered by china at some point.  there are afghanis who look chinese.  i was told by someone once that i, a full-blooded chinese, look like a khazak; in other words, some khazaks probably look somewhat chinese too.  praise genghis!
dood someone should put that on a t-shirt or something.

seanscheng said,

October 25, 2005 @ 2:07 pm

BTW, the guy named BurinB who left a comment a few lines up is totally wrong. Plenty of Siberians have an Asian look due to intermingling between ethnic Russians and Chinese. Ask any Russian person you know and I guarantee he’ll have a grandparent that’s Chinese.
Recently, Putin wanted to put an end to Chinese men marrying off Russian wives. I’m not sure whether the law was passed or not, I’ll have to check. But it goes to show the extent of the mingling that’s going on in that part of the Asian continent.

FYI, Korean and Chinese languare do not belong to the same language family!! Also not all language in Asia has Chinese influence. Korean and Japanese only adoped the writting system!! And Part of South East Asian are culturally influenced by Indian culture. =)

Kevin72 said,

October 25, 2005 @ 10:07 pm

I got an 8 …. about 4-5 of them I was actually sure of and was right, but most were indeterminate. I had that map two posts back if anyone wants to check that had most of Asia labeled ‘Chinese’, Africa and the Middle East labeled “poor people and terrorists”, and Europe plus Russia labeled “Gays and Commies”, etc.

Language defines only a part of a culture, there are such other things that define a culture including music/dances, folk lore, food, clothing, ideals, belief and history.  Though european languages are influenced by Latin, it is also heavily influenced by Greek.
I’ve been called Chinese by a stranger because I’m Asian, it bothered me because the person is a presumptuous ignoramus.  The thing was… I am 100% friggin’ CHINESE, so I can’t say squat to the guy.

swupak said,

October 26, 2005 @ 8:20 am

you might want to clarify “most east asian” when you say “all asian” languages.  like, tagalog, any austronesian language, any indo-european language, mongolian, hindi, which comprise at least 4/10s of the population of asia.  but, of course, with sweeping generalizations like those, you were being simplistic, no?  which is the same thing as shutting off your brain….

aliasfairy said,

I got a pretty good score– I only missed two. But I lived in Japan and stayed in Korea and Singapore. My aunt is Chinese and my boyfriend is Indonesian– so I pretty much have most of my asians covered.

rofl! i actually think most asians (excluding filipinos/thai/etc.) look really similar. why? it’s probably cuz i live in the most asian inhabited city in the u.s., so sooner or later, everyone starts to look the same. *shrugoh, and i got 5/18; i’m pretty sure that means i’m terrible or a disgrace to asians or something. :|

i got a 7. very bad.but looking at my results, i can easily tell a japanese/korean person from a chinese person. just not a japanese person from a korean person and vice-versa.and yeah, i’m filipino. tagalog comes from spanish, it’s pretty easy to hear in the language.

Yes they do all have influences.. but that doesn’t necessarily mean that everyone is Chinese… they may be decendents.. but i mean it’s hard to split it down like that.. yeah.. gotta learn chinese.. that’s funny.. because my parents want to ship me off to china because since I am in business they told me Chinese is the way to go…

It’s weird not seeing you on the Featured list. And I’ve just told you I have too much time on my hands.

People have asked me if I’m Chinese, Japanese, or Korean – which is annoying, because I’m Filipino.

Asians are not chinese. Chinese is Chinese. even though chinese culture did influence other countries, so what? what’s the big deal? As though we asians should thank china? Heck no.

While it is true the Chinese influenced many if not all Asian countries, the words do not mean the same in Chinese and Japanese (and etc) because of that influence; rather, they are the same because they use the same character.  The Chinese gave mostly all the Asian nations (hey, it rhymed!) the basic writing structure.  From there, it was adapted to fit the native’s needs.  Of course, the Chinese reading of characters and the Japanese readings are usually different.  They may also have different meanings.

Oh yeah. 
I highly doubt the Eskimo’s have a language that has some Chinese loan words.  They migrated over a bit early, in terms of China’s development, to borrow their words.  But yes, they are an Asian descent (I think).
Just my four eProps worth.

Maybe that’s why all Asians enjoy rice and noodles.
