This is only one small aspect of the term. "Amerasian" can refer to any children of American and Asian parentage. RickK 03:39 4 Jul 2003 (UTC)

Correct. It isn't just for the Vietnam War. For example, Mia Elliott, the lead character on Love is a Many Splendored Thing, was Amerasian as her father was a Korean War veteran. Mike H 17:21, Aug 27, 2004 (UTC)

I happened upon this article because of the lyrics of 'Straight To Hell' by the Clash, it's a very beautiful song and I think would be intriguing to anyone interested in this subject. pomegranate 22:27, May 20, 2005 (UTC)

Definition of "Amerasian" seems to be racially strained. It usually describes children with non-Asian accenstry American servicemen and Asian parentage. Yet its definition depends on the definition of American. There are White, Hispanic, African and Asian American. Definition of American is not racially related since America is a country of immigrants. Some Asian have been in the America for more than 6 generations, yet many would not consider them as American because they were under presented in the American history.


Doesn't take into account that America is also a continent (see use of the word American).

Question about Illigitimate Amerasians childrens of Mail-order brides / grooms[edit]

The Majority of Amerasians are sons and daughters of prostitutes, and 'mail-order brides fathered by Old man US service mens ? Most mother's OF Amerasians are mail-order brides seeking to get a green card in the United States!! Correct me if I'm wrong?

That's, so far, an unfounded allegation, based on bizarre generalizations and seemingly bigotry. There are currently no documented statistics that can back up your statements about the mothers' supposed professions, motives and intentions. Unless you can provide documented statistics and valid sources - yes, you're wrong.
Furthermore, due to certain countries' cultural beliefs about blood lineage in the past, some mothers, married or not, of half-foreign children were labelled 'prostitute' or 'whore', but this does not necessarily mean they were prostitutes. It's important to remember that some mothers were documented victims of sexual assault (or, bluntly, rape). Some mothers had had serious relationships that ended naturally. Some were married women. In spite of these circumstances, they were still labelled 'prostitute'. So, this is a matter of a soci-cultural conflict, not a fact.
As for this allegation: most mothers of Amerasians are mail order brides seeking to get a green card in the United States? I'm sorry, but that is such a silly thing to say, considering the U.S. history of mail order brides (i.e. there were mail order brides from all over the world including Britain, Ireland, the Netherlands, Canada and more, particularly during 19th century and 20th century) and the fact that the United States is historically a country of immigrants.
Do read anecdotal history books, such as Hearts West: True Stories of Mail-Order Brides on the Frontier by Chris Enss, Romance on a Global Stage: Pen Pals, Virtual Ethnography, and "Mail Order" Marriages by Nicole Constable, Korean Picture Brides: 1903-1920 : A Collection of Oral Histories by Sonia Shinn Sunoo, Black Women of the Old West by William Loren Katz, and more.
Lastly, seeing your sub-header, how can Amerasian children be illegitimate if their mothers were mail order brides? 0zero9nine (talk) 05:11, 7 June 2011 (UTC)[reply]

the asians criated terms very non-sense[edit]

se assumam como asiáticos; the afro-americans(the majority with europeans and/or amerindians ancestors) not auto-denominated "mulattoes" or "zambos"; the phillipines invented supost "spaniards" ancestors pra se declararem "mestizos" ao invés de se assumirem asians!! —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 08:21, 7 February 2009 (UTC)[reply]


Arnt Americans mongoloid in case of the natives?-- (talk) 05:10, 16 June 2009 (UTC)[reply]

Not Amerasians[edit]

I unfortunately, had to remove well sourced content from this article as it fails to fall within the scope of this article. This article is about Asians who have ancestry where one parent was a United States armed forces service member. Therefore those serving for Spanish Empire do not fall within the scope of this article. Please do not re-add it without achieving a consensus for a change in scope for this article per WP:BRD. Perhaps the removed content would be better in the Mexican settlement in the Philippines article.--RightCowLeftCoast (talk) 02:49, 28 April 2017 (UTC)[reply]

@Gintong Liwanag Ng Araw: Please stop reverting, this might constitute an edit war and it is not keeping with BRD. While Mexico is in North America, Mexicans or those who lived in New Spain are not Americans nor were those service members from the Viceroy of New Spain service members of the United States Armed Forces. The content which Gintong Liwanag Ng Araw (talk · contribs) added does not fall within the scope of this article, and thus was removed. @Wtmitchell: can you please provide an additional opinion regarding this issue?--RightCowLeftCoast (talk) 00:21, 29 April 2017 (UTC)[reply]
The article at present defines Ameriasians as those with a US military father. If it was a general "North American" then perhaps it would bekong on the article, but this article refers exclusively to people from the United States of America. Alcherin (talk) 11:13, 29 April 2017 (UTC)[reply]
Ok, since my edits isn't considered under the scope of Amerasian, I think I'll just put it in the other article about Mexican Settlement in the Philippines. Gintong Liwanag Ng Araw (talk) 15:44, 29 April 2017 (UTC)[reply]

Expand to new pages[edit]

Vietnamese and Filipino Amerasians should be expanded to new separate pages. There are more research on these two groups now.

Issues with Vamlos[edit]

There seems to be issues with user Vamlos's contributions as per their User Talk page: User_talk:Vamlos. He just deleted content on this page without a valid reason or discussion. Please keep an eye on this person. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Amerasianeditor (talkcontribs) 11:26, 4 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]

No. I just removed the ones that are extremely exaggerated. Taiwanese Amerasians are few in comparison, around 1,000 There are Taiwanese Eurasians in almost every western world, doesn't mean we should mention every country just like there are Chinese Eurasians everywhere. The Laos Amerasians are also unknown. The number of Thai Amerasians is at 5000-8000, but you edited the section without mentioning that only "some" Thai Amerasians migrated.Vamlos (talk) 00:53, 7 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Understood User_talk:Vamlos. Much appreciated. I have the data from my university days but unfortunately, all my sources are boxed up in the US.
