It's not wrong. We are asian. You know I don't get that at all. If you're referring to the fact that many consider us Pacific Islanders, we're not, that term refers to Oceanians: Polynesians, Melanesians and Micronesians. We ARE asian. Our descendants ARE ASIAN. We ARE in ASIA. Though are blood is mixed by many other ethnicities, Chinese, Japanese, American, and of course Spanish, of which our language also has root in, we ARE asian. I don't get how you would find that wrong?

Malays, we're descendants of Malaysians, our closest genetic relative would be the Amis.
