Young, Suburban and Mostly Asian: Canada’s Immigrant Population Surges

National Post, May 5, 2013

The debut of Canada’s controversial census replacement survey shows there are more foreign-born people in the country than ever before, at a proportion not seen in almost a century.

They’re young, they’re suburban, and they’re mainly from Asia, although Africans are arriving in growing numbers.

But the historical comparisons are few and far between in the National Household Survey, which Statistics Canada designed—at Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s behest—to replace the cancelled long-form census of the past.

The new survey of almost three million people shows that Canada is home to 6.8 million foreign-born residents—or 20.6 per cent of the population, compared with 19.8 per cent in 2006, and the highest in the G8 group of rich countries.

It also shows that aboriginal populations have surged by 20 per cent over the past five years, now representing 4.3 per cent of Canada’s population — up from 3.8 per cent in the 2006 census.

Almost one in five people living in Canada is a visible minority. And in nine different municipalities, those visible minorities are actually the majority.

However, Statistics Canada isn’t handing out detailed comparisons to the results shown in the 2006 census.

That’s because many comparisons with the past can only made reliably at a national or provincial level, said Marc Hamel, director general of the census. He said the agency suppressed data from 1,100 mainly small communities because of data quality, compared with about 200 that were suppressed in 2006.

“For a voluntary survey, it has very good quality. We have a high quality of results at a national level,” said Hamel.

Until 2006, questions on immigration, aboriginals and religion were asked in the mandatory long-form census that went to one-fifth of Canadian households. When the Conservatives cancelled that part of the census in 2010, Statistics Canada replaced it with a new questionnaire that went to slightly more households, but was voluntary instead of mandatory, skewing the data when it comes to making direct comparisons.

The result is a detailed picture of what Canada looked like in 2011, but it is a static picture that in many instances lacks the context of what the country looked like in the past at the local level.

What the NHS does show is that, overwhelmingly, most recent immigrants are from Asia, including the Middle East, but to a lesser degree than in the early part of the decade. Between 2006 and 2011, 56.9 per cent of immigrants were Asian, compared with the 60 per cent of the immigrants that came between 2001 and 2005.

The Philippines was the top source country for recent immigrants, with 13 per cent, according to the National Household Survey — although a footnote warns that the survey data “is not in line” with data collected by Citizenship and Immigration Canada. China and India were second and third as source countries.

The decline in the share of Asian immigration was offset by growth in newcomers from Africa in particular, and also Caribbean countries and Central and South America.

As in the past, newcomers are settling in Canada’s biggest cities and are generally younger than the established population. Newcomers have a median age of 31.7 years, compared to the Canadian-born population median age of 37.3.

Of Canada’s 6.8 million immigrants, 91 per cent of them live in metropolitan areas, and 63.4 per cent live in the Toronto, Montreal or Vancouver areas.

The Toronto area continues to be the top destination for immigrants, but newcomers are increasingly settling elsewhere, especially in the Prairies. Winnipeg, Saskatoon, Calgary, Edmonton, Halifax and Montreal all saw their shares of newcomers expand compared to the 2006 census.

While Statscan did not make the comparison, the Toronto area drew in just 32.8 per cent of recent immigrants in the past five years, compared with 40.4 per cent in the 2006 census and 43.1 per cent in the 2001 census.

Analysts had been anxious to see whether province-driven immigration policies had led to growing numbers of immigrants settling in smaller towns and cities, but the NHS does not make comparisons at that level.

The survey does show that suburbs in particular are a magnet for visible minorities. The Toronto suburbs of Markham, Brampton, Mississauga and Richmond Hill all have visible minority communities that make up well over half the population. The same pattern is seen in areas around Vancouver: in Richmond, Greater Vancouver, Burnaby and Surrey.

Aboriginal Peoples are also claiming a larger share of the Canadian population. More than 1.4 million people told Statscan they had an aboriginal identity, comprising 4.3 per cent of the population compared to 3.8 per cent in the 2006 census.

The aboriginal population grew by more than 20 per cent between 2006 and 2011, compared with 5.2 per cent for the non-aboriginal population. However, Statscan warns that not all of this growth was because of people having more babies. Rather, changes in legal definitions and survey methodology account for some of the difference.

First Nations populations grew by 22.0 per cent, while Metis people grew 16.3 per cent and Inuit by 18.1 per cent.

While the data so far does not delve into social conditions among Aboriginal Peoples, the NHS does offer a glimpse. Aboriginal children are far more likely to be living with a single parent, usually a mother. Half the foster children under the age of 14 are aboriginal, the survey shows. And less than half of First Nations children live with both parents.

As for religion, Canadians are increasingly turning their backs. While two-thirds of Canada’s population said it was Christian, almost one quarter of respondents said they had no religious affiliation at all. That’s up from 16.5 per cent a decade earlier in the 2001 census.

At the same time, immigration patterns have led to growth in the numbers of Muslim, Hindu, Sikh and Buddhist worshippers.

    Canada is experiencing its highest rates of Third World immigration ever under “conservative” Prime Minister Stephen Harper.

          Sadly, it is impossible to imagine this happening.

  • Matt

    This census reporting comes out year after year, and it’s more depressing all the time as the demographics increasingly shift in the direction of third-worlders. They are all over Canada now, including places in the middle of the Canadian prairies you never thought they’d show up and well up north too in places like the Northwest Territories. Americans take heed: cold weather will NOT be a deterrent to non-whites.

    • Unperson

      Right you are. One of Canada’s Artic territories recently got its first mosque, so the Muslim cab-drivers of the Far North will have a place to worship Allah. The Moon God has come to the land of the Midnight Sun. We’re talking bearded Mohammedans and their veiled wives living so high up on the globe that they’re within a snowball’s throw of Santa’s Workshop.
      And I’ve seen photos of Latin-American mestizos living in Sweden. Exactly why Sweden felt they needed low-skilled Spanish-speaking immigrants, or owed such people anything at all, remains a mystery.
      The hot-weather brown and black peoples of the world may not like the cold-weather climates of white countries. But if it means these peasants can upgrade their lifestyle so get around in a minivan instead of on a donkey — not to mention ALL the other benefits of being in the First World instead of the Third — they’ll put up with any amount of subzero snowstorms. To get their primitive mitts on a piece of our high-tech Whitopias, they’d follow us all the way to Pluto.

      • pcmustgo

        hmm, Amer-Indians were brown and lived all over the North. Don’t forget that with your hot/cold theories….. just sayin’….

        Eskimoes, tons of Amer-Indians lived up North. More lived in South America, where they built more impressive civilizations, but yeah.

      • And I’ve seen photos of Latin-American mestizos living in Sweden.

        Stop it. You know perfectly well they’re only there to do the jobs that Swedes won’t do. And besides, Sweden stole Minnesota from Mexico way back when…or something like that.

        • sky

          A Swede told me their prime minister proclaimed that he will go out of his way to import low skilled males from the third world

          • Paleoconn

            my next youtube search. Doesn’t surprise given what kinda pansies Swedes have become. Are these people really descended from Vikings.

            I once knew a Swedish girl who said she liked southern European guys because they were hot-blooded and told her how beautiful she was. I never asked her if she preferred guys from still further south.

  • pcmustgo

    Yeah, not sure if you guys have ever been around large group of Asians. I attended a college that was at least 60% East Asian + East Indian….yeah… very different than that one asian kid who’s forced to assimilate into the white crowd because he has no choice. They have also got into identity politics these days. Trust me! I lived it. They’re just not as angry, poor or violent as Blacks.

    • GeneticsareDestiny

      I agree. I’ve spent time around large groups of them, and that is a very different story from spending time with one. One Asian can mostly assimilate successfully to a white neighborhood, school, or peer group. This is something they should be commended on, as no other race can do this.

      But in large groups, the general rule comes into play and areas begin to turn into the home countries of the people populating them. Letting large amounts of Asians into white countries will inevitably turn white countries into Asian countries.

      This is not a desirable prospect.

      • conan

        True.

        Look at Brampton, Ontario. It’s essentially an Indian colony complete with all the overcrowding, filth and corruption that Indian society entails.

      • pcmustgo

        Also, Japanese tend to be better at being like us and having manners than Chinese, Koreans, and worse yet, Vietnamese.

        • Triarius

          That is because Japan is the only East-Asian culture that is almost completely all “Western”. They were the first, and only, Oriental culture to throw off the ancient Asian culture to adopt and love Westernization.

          • sky

            But in Japan, women are thoroughly and disturbingly disrespected and they constantly experience unfair treatments when it comes to career advancements

          • Anonymous

            At least Japan isn’t a radically feminist and misandrist country. I don’t want to live in Japan, but I think the United States and certain other Western countries can see that at least their society isn’t misandrist and at least Japanese women don’t pop out huge numbers of bastard babies or frivorce their husbands.

          • sky

            That, I agree with you. I had a cup of coffee at McDonald’s yesterday and I saw two mothers. One was white and the other was a black mother. The white mother only had one child (albeit pure white) but the black mother had three young kids.

          • kerrysmith

            Never saw ‘frivorce’ before – clever~!

      • Bobby

        That is why the communist internationalist leftist white race haters, do everything they can do to enable the corporatist global elite. They love to push large scale immigration of non whites into western nations.

      • Paleoconn

        I went to Toronto on business, there are at least a half-dozen Chinese suburbs, and several more southeast Asian ones. There are malls and stores where no English is to be seen on signs or heard in speech.

    • Precisely why I support strict immigration standards that would never allow a White nation to drop below a set threshold. 90% White or greater is good enough for me at this point in time. Just because they are less destructive than the black and brown hordes doesn’t magically make them White. Some of the Asiaphiles don’t believe in boundaries or race-based thresholds when it comes to their Asians. This is why they are detrimental to nationalist, pro-White nations, not simply because they have their fetishes and preferences.

    • Rhialto

      Your right, and this is true of all groups. I have even observed it in triple digit IQ blacks. Their behavior is much different when they are a minor minority than when they are in a dominant position.

      Another factor is that western nations have a Liberal-Feminist culture that no normal man wants to be part of.

    • ATBOTL

      Many older whites, even racially aware ones, have never been in an environment with large numbers of Asians and refuse to accept that they can be a problem.

    • Triarius

      Same here, Ross School of Business, less than 2 years ago. It is not fun and made me go from “awake” to “SUPER awake”.

      About 60% were East or South Asian. My God they hated me, but loved women of my ethnicity more than life itself. Thankfully most women, even in the Peoples’ Republic of Ann Arbor, did not feel the same way.

  • Nathanwartooth

    “As for religion, Canadians are increasingly turning their backs. While two-thirds of Canada’s population said it was Christian, almost one quarter of respondents said they had no religious affiliation at all. That’s up from 16.5 per cent a decade earlier in the 2001 census.”

    As an atheist I see this as a very bad thing.

    Most atheists after deciding that there is no God find something new to believe in. That is usually far left liberalism and a belief that the government is the greatest force in the universe.

    There is a good reason why communist nations banned religion. They wanted them to worship the state instead.

    Atheism+ makes me want to barf. “Atheism+ is a safe space for people to discuss how religion affects everyone and to apply skepticism and critical thinking to everything, including social issues like sexism, racism, GLBT issues, politics, poverty, and crime.”

    This is what atheism is turning into. Only go to their website on an empty stomach. They are truly some of the most ignorant people on the planet.

    Oh and by “apply skepticism” means the usual, you must believe that race is a social construct and that Whites are all racist meanies or else you are banned.

    • I’m an atheist, and I can tell you without any shadow of doubt that those people are to independent thinkers what Jim Jones and the Peoples Temple were to peace and tranquility.

      Even calling myself an atheist isn’t entirely true. I’m closer to being a deist. Most people just don’t understand how those two labels aren’t mutually exclusive. But a lot of people refer to Buddhism as a religion, so I guess it’s understandable that people can be easily confused on matters of religion, ideologies and philosophies.

    • GeneticsareDestiny

      I’m an atheist too, and I agree. Organized religion provides people something to believe in other than liberal ultra-egalitarianism and state worship. Being without it makes most people very vulnerable to the liberal elite Narrative.

      Before I realized this positive function of religion, I enjoyed watching atheism grow. I now dread it, because a strong majority of atheists are the blindest sheep you could ever imagine.

      • Nathanwartooth

        I completely agree. I think all atheists go through the “all religions are bad” phase and most are permanently stuck in it.

        It seems like you can’t have a population that reproduces at a rate that replaces themselves without a decent number of your population being religious. You literally need it to keep from dying out.

        There are many positives to having a christian nation with the only two negatives constantly being trotted out are “they are against abortion and gay marriage”.

        • There are many positives to having a christian nation with the only two negatives constantly being trotted out are “they are against abortion and gay marriage”.

          Those are not the only negatives against the rabid fundamentalists. Most of the arguments against Christianity were not against Christianity as a religion. They were against Christianity as a form of government – a Theocracy.

          • Paleoconn

            But there hasn’t been a risk of a Christian theocracy since forever, yet the Christianity-bashing keeps going unabated.

          • I’m not saying the threat of a theocracy exists today. I merely meant that the initial push against Christianity wasn’t rooted in some extreme form of Christian-bashing. It was a response to extremists/fundamentalists trying their best to push toward a Theocracy. Extremes eventually create extremes, and that gave life to the anti-Christian zealots that you see today. Without moral zealots pushing for Prohibition, the criminal elements might not have been launched into stardom. Without extremely sexually repressive demagogues, the depravity of the sexual revolution might not have been given life.

            Did you know that some states still have it written that an atheist is forbidden from holding a government position? It’s not really enforced, but I can guarantee you that you wouldn’t have to look very far to find a group of bible-thumpers ready to push for that as nothing more than common sense policy.

        • kerrysmith

          Those are negatives? why wasn’t I told?

    • a multiracial individual

      Outside of the US, most whites are very secular. The trouble is of course, secular realists are very difficult to find. After all, those KKK members are racists because of RELIGION right?

    • Paleoconn

      I have many friends like you whom I call classical atheists, very intelligent people.

      The modern atheist tha I see more of nowadays is driven by a hatred of one religion only, Christianity.

      And as far as these people, as GK Chesterton once said, when you don’t believe in God, it’s not that you believe in nothing; it’s that you will believe in anything.

    European-Canada is just “ripe for the pickin”. It’s a big nation, a lot of resources and has a good number of LEFTIST traitors in its govenrment, just like the U.S. does.

    • NYB

      Canada also has an activist Jewish community.

      Two major cities now have sitting Jewish mayors (Montreal and Winnipeg). They also sit on the Supreme Court, and are major stakeholders in the opinion-making news media. The salient result is that anti-white sentiment is being woven into the laws and functions of government.

      For years, Canadians were told they were “multicultural”.

      Subtly, the agenda has shifted to a ‘melting pot’ integration strategy. Hindus, Sikhs, Muslims, Orientals and Africans are encouraged to appropriate Western ways and pretend they’re part of a brown hodge-podge, in order to define the ‘new’ Canada.

      • Bobby

        That’s tragic. Professor kevin Macdonald has shown what activist Jews, who become involved in immigration issues and other social problems will do to any western nation they get active in. Sorry to hear it.

          • Paleoconn

            My point, of course, is that a certain group can be influential without having one of their own as PM or President or Chancellor or whatever.

          • kerrysmith

            Right, and there’s also a huge gulf between being ‘influential’ and ‘running the show’. Liberalism in Canada (and in the US) has had a huge consistuency, cutting across all ethnic groups, because most people, including many soi-disant conservatives, have found the liberal ‘offer’ very appealing. In my opinion that’s a tribute to short-term thinking, but the appeal is undeniable all the same.

      • Paleoconn

    It also shows that aboriginal populations have surged by 20 per cent over the past five years, now representing 4.3 per cent of Canada’s population — up from 3.8 per cent in the 2006 census.
    _________

    That’s a huge increase! Is it real or are there a lot more fake Injuns out there?

    • NYB

      Both.

      The intelligent natives leave the reserves to live among whites. They can often retain native status when they intermarry. The natives on reserve don’t have to work or provide their own shelters – the result is an above average fecundity.

      Recently the government granted official recognition of native status to a long forgotten tribe. They estimated no more than 12,000 people would claim ancestry. Instead, 100,000 people stepped forward to say they had an aboriginal heritage. The benefits are enormous, from preferences in government hiring, to subsidized post-secondary education, to non-insured healthcare, to funding for economic development.
      Native status is highly coveted these days.

  • NYB

    Like all Western nations, Canada has no control of its immigration policy. The unelected dictators of international finance set the numbers.

    The U.N. recently declared, with the certainty of a clairvoyant, that the Western First World countries would accept 2.5 million Third World migrants per year, well into mid-century. Europe will get a million per year, the U.S. will get a million per year, and Australia and Canada will split the rest.

    Never mind that the U.N. has no idea which parties will govern, they already know what our immigration policies will be (!)

    We are being ruled by tyrants, who have nothing but contempt for us. We should be handing them their heads.

    Canada is becoming China’s northern outpost or its eastern-most state, depending on how you look at it. With the USA becoming Mexico’s northern-most state, I can foresee a day a hundred years from now, when Mexico and China will share a border. Today it’s called the US-Canada border. That border will not be a peaceful one either.

  • John R

    Why do White countries even HAVE immigrants? That is the question I keep asking people, here and elsewhere. Are we really THAT desperate for some cheap labor? Does getting a cheap car wash, or a cheaper retaurant meal worth destroying one’s society? Can’t we cut our own lawns? What is the matter with our people?

    • It “feels” better to give than receive and they’re giving it all away…

      • Paleoconn

        I wonder how bad receiving feels then.

    • guest

      Another thing that comes to mind is if White people are so racist and evil as the mentally ill leftists are always saying, then why are we having all these non-White immigrants coming to our countries and integrating among us? We have yet to hear an honest, intelligent, and objective answer to that question. The only response we ever get is the same old “multiculturalism is so great” mantra.

    • bigone4u

      1. We the people don’t want immigrants, but our owners (TPTB, Illuminati, whoever) control the legal system and our owners want immigration for their own reasons.
      And/Or
      2. We the people have been brainwashed into believing that others deserve a piece of the American dream and so we don’t fight immigration, foolishly believing in the melting pot theory.
      You and I fall into the group that does not want immigration. How to deprogram those who want it is one place to start. Another place to go is to think about how to overthrow the yoke our masters have placed around our necks. Bill Gates wants cheap labor, but I am willing to mow my own yard. Until the Gateses and others like him are disempowered, we will have to eat the junk they shove down our throats.

    • kerrysmith

      Perhaps we should stop speaking of ‘immigration’ and call it ‘population replacement’, which is what’s really going on.

  • Does anyone know the name of the Canadian equivilent of Amren or does anyone recommend any Canadian pro-white politicians?

      There was a faction of the National Alliance operating in Canada I believe. I’d actually met one in my town in America. Called a number on a poster at my university, it read ‘stop affirmative action. white folks need jobs too. After meeting the guy I was pretty convinced the guy I knew owed his true alliegiance to a much more reputable and better funded group (with a bit more moral capital) I was absolutely positive the guy I met owed his true alliegance to something like hate watch.

      anyway, just sayin. no doubt there are conservative groups in canada, and liberals concerned about unfairness to whites.

    Another piece that proves we whites are INTENTIONALLY being replaced in our own countries by our own governments. Well, by the people who controls our governments… This isn’t a coincidence, folks. t is the intentional destruction of the white race because we are the biggest threat to the real people in charge. Remember, the concept of personal liberty – as well as the concept of human “rights” versus societal “privileges” – all started with us whites!

    Jared Taylors ‘banned in halifax’ appearance caused quite a spash in Canada. The major newspaper in canada were editorializing about it, mostly in the context of supporting free speech – we not support the messenger but free speech is sacrosanct! Apparently, canadians didn’t learn all that much. Taylor’s Banned in Halifax speech truly is a stunning and eye opening piece. In my opinion, the best thing Taylor has written.

    How about graphics to go along with this article?. . how about a map of canada showing only 80% of the territory- the portion whites would hypothetically, or symbolically be fit to occupy. Then show the map based on 2020 projections. Then 2030 projections. Canada isn’t dicing with the future of their country – they are assuring it will be split in portions, with whites likely entitled to a smaller and smaller share until the day that still blessed event will occur.

    “I attended a college that was at least 60% East Asian + East Indian….yeah… very different than that one asian kid who’s forced to assimilate into the white crowd because he has no choice”.

    I hung around some with a bunch of study-in-america Asian students while at college – I had a Korean friend. One of them was advised to transfer to South Dakota, I believe it was, so his English would have to get good! He transferred. When he came back he was loud, almost obnoxious (compared to other Koreans) had a deep voice – he truly had assimilated. I almost felt embarrassed for the guy.

      Now if he came back from S Dakota he might speak ebonics or spanglish. . .

  • KenelmDigby

    So, ‘visible minorities’, (as the Canadians so quaintly and illogically call them), are now around 20% of the Canadian population.

    A remarkable occurence, that when you consider that as recently as 1970, ‘visible minorities’ comprised perhaps 1 or 2% of the Canadian population and that immigration of many non-European groups was effectively banned by the Canadian government.

    At this rate of growth – which shows absolutely no sign of moderating or changing whatsoever – White Canadians will be a minority population in Canada within 20 years. Thereafter their numbers will shrink, proportionately, even more. By the latter part of this century you’re talking about the 10 – 20% range. Optimistically.

    The Canadian political class is just as nutty and deluded as any found in Europe. In particular, compare them to Britain’s disastrous New Labour or the lunatics who ran Spain into the ground. All of the above ran the same ‘open-borders’ immigration policy.

    Canada pretty much invented the concept of multiculturalism in the sixties and seventies under Lester Pearson and Pierre Trudeau. We had a Ministry of Multiculturalism back in the early seventies before other western countries embraced the ideology. I think you can thank Canada for the idea of multiculturalism. The melting pot idea works better imo.

    • ageofknowledge

      The melting pot approach requires the enculturation of immigrants into a culture. That has been abandoned to a large degree. Now it’s just illegally enter, drop babies for welfare, and start transforming the culture you just entered into the poor performing one you just left. That’s what we’re seeing today.

    • NYB

      Melting pots produce brown stews of miscegenation and forced assimilation.

      At least multiculturalism indirectly gives consent to self-segregation.

        Not to whites, it doesn’t.

    In 100 years British Columbia will be a Chinese republic. I have no doubt about that. Much of central Africa will also be under Chinese control.

      They have also made housing in BC unaffordable for native Canadians.

    Chinese immigrants might just be the most dangerous one for Canada. I don’t think China – in the future – will take kindly to any real or perceived ill-treatment of their canadian expats. Canada is too close for comfort to the world’s next superpower.

    • Intrepid

      Would you assume that immigrants from Europe would also be loyal to their home countries? If not, then there’s no reason to believe that Chinese-Canadians would be loyal to China.

      • IstvanIN

        Oh please, get real. If the British-Canadians try to take back their country in 20 years it will be too late, the Chinese will appeal to their nuclear-armed brothers across the pacific and there isn’t a darn thing the Royal Canadian Navy can do but lower the Maple Leaf and submit. Nothing. A non-nuclear protected White people are a dead White people.

      • kerrysmith

        But if a Czech-Canadian is loyal to the Czech Republic, say, then so what? The problem is that China may well be acquiring the sort of influence and reach that will make them a danger to us. This isn’t even a racial thing, it’s just great-power politics.

      • Paleoconn

        The Chinese have been known to steal trade secrets from companies, scientific research employers, NASA, etc for the country who pretend they are not loyal to.

    • kerrysmith

      Worst-case scenario is that China becomes absolutely dominant internationally and that the Chinese-Canadians become consuls, a ruling class running the country ihn Chinese interests. On the other hand, there are other large immigrant groups (Muslim, Hindu, etc.) who would resist this, unless perhaps they’re bought off. In my more paranoic moments I wonder if there aren’t white politicians already being bought off.

    He has to do what liberals tell me to.What a shame to be forced to live with another races but hopefully I will move out Toronto it is disgusting here infested with non whites

    • Magician

      Why not move out maybe next week?

  • ageofknowledge

    Will Canada be ripped apart by sectarian violence of competing ethnic groups in a hundred years? Possibly.

    • IstvanIN

      In far less than 100 years.

    Canada has a high minority population, but they don’t experience many of the problems that the U.S. has. Canadian demographics are mostly White and Asian, as opposed to American minorities who are mostly Black and Hispanic. There’s less economic and social disparity in Canada, and also significantly less crime.

      A lot of Jamar Martinez in the US and a lot of Chengs in Canada…..

  • kerrysmith

    Of what use is the increasingly popular term ‘Asian immigrants’ when it includes Chinese, Vietnamese, Indians, Pakistanis – groups which in many cases can’t stand each other’s guts?

    • Paleoconn

      Ditto ‘hispanic’. My guess though, when they say ‘Asian immigrants’ in countries like Canada and the UK, is that they really mean Arabs.

      • kerrysmith

        And what used to be called East Indians.

      • Intrepid

        “Asian” in North America still predominantly refers to East Asians – the Chinese, Japanese and Koreans.
