Anyone from China or Taiwan. Just because someone is Asian doesn't mean that they're Chinese. Many idiotic people firmly believe that all Chinese people are really smart nerds with small eyes that are quiet, boring, and antisocial. These people are racist and need to get a life. Chinese is just a race and does not define the personality.
She's Chinese, but she has big eyes and isn't quiet at all.

Kevjumba is Chinese.
