The media calls these people "Asians".
In other words, the media uses a racial classification to name a group of people who are
1) driven by ideology, not race
2) more time than not, NOT ASIAN.
Arabs are not Asians. Persians are not Asians. Turks are not Asians. Africans are not Asians. Albanians are not Asians.
By the way, in case you didn't know (and I know I am not being "politically correct" here) these people who do all the "bad" things are called
Most Muslims in this world are not Pakistani, Malaysian, or Indonesian.
Most Muslims in the world are not Asian in even the broadest sense of the word Asian.
And yet, it is the politically correct media (who believe that they are above racism) who are blaming the Asians for the violence.
What is truly amazing is that the very reason these PC media types blame "Asians" is exactly because they don't want to blame Islam. And, the reason they don't want to blame Islam is because they don't think it is fair.
And yet, it is the height of fairnes to criticize an ideology. Ideas are mental constructs created freely out of the minds of men. Ideas are not born in people, as are racial attributes. When a new idea is proposed, fairness dictates that the idea be tested through the process of critical analysis, to ensure that the idea is sound and will work for the greater good of people.
However, it is not fair to blame a race of people for the bad deeds done in the name of an ideology, even if most of the people who adhere to an ideology are of a certain race.
The PC Media, under the guise of fairness, are blaming the misdeeds of a few ideologically-driven people on a group of people designated by their racial characteristics.
That is racism.
Can you imagine how Chinese people, and Indians, and Filipinos feel about that?
