You might as well call the Russian, asian... East Asian the white asian. LOL!!!
russian asian checking in.
actually, quite a few of us have asian heritage due to the mongol expansion west and ensuing empires (or khanates) of central asia and russia during the 13th and 14th centuries. the offspring of these turko-mongols and russians were the first eurasian people.
there are several groups (tatars, kipchaks, buryats, kazakhs, chuvash, uzbeks, bulgars, azeris, turkmen, uyghurs, kyrgyz, yakuts etc) and millions of people within those groups scattered across russia and central asia.
as you can see, the mongols covered quite a bit of ground in mother russia.
