    Why Filipinos? They pretty much share the same color skin with most Hispanics and Middle Easterners. Why them exactly?

    Because the Filipinos are highly homogenized. Hispanics are too, at least, when they're the kind that have substantial native mestizo genes.

    EDIT: It was also a joke, but above is my grain of truth.

    in the west coast, the proper term is Hapa. But I guess the east coast is different.

    Im 100% Korean ethnicity.

    actually if everyone mixed, then ppl would probably look more middle eastern or arab. since that area is historically a central "meeting" place over thousands of years.

    But I doubt they have as much Austronesian genetics as the Filipinos. Gotta be incluseive here.

    Hapa is originally for the mixed people of Hawaiin ethnicity only. Other asian/european mixes adopted that name over time for some reason I don't currently comprehend. On the other hand, you can apply the term hapa (meaning mixed) to any "racial" combination.

    Austronesian is pretty varied. From Ainu to aboriginals in australia.

    And even then, they found an African tribe in east Africa that has the same lineage as the Australian aborigines.

    But either way, culturally and historically, the middle east is really the most diverse in the world.

    Well, its a west coast thing. So, the way it is applied here is for Asian/White or Asian/Black or Asian/Mexican mixes.

    Eurasian can be Kazakstanian in my opinion. But even then, i'd rather call Kazakstanians "Central Asians".

    I was referring to asian/white mixes too. I live near the west coast, and have heard this term applied to me as well. I don't really agree with it's usage, but I understand that it's used with predominance in the east asian community.

    yeah, i think a large part of it is a cultural connotation too.

    dunno how it came from hawaii to west coast, but i'd imagine part of it is from japanese americans long ago who came from hawaii to california in the late 19th century...

    That makes sense to me. There are many Japanese-Hawaiians.
