Why are Asians so 'seperated'?

These concepts are socially constructed and have been given much weight. What are your thoughts?

East Asians (China, Japan, Korea, Mongolia) and Southeast Asians (Laos, Hmong, Vietnam, Cambodia, the Philippines, Malaysia, Indonesia, Burma, Thailand, etc.) all share a dominant blood type called Haplogroup O which is found in 90% of peoples from those areas and is exclusive as a dominant gene in those areas alone.

These type of Asians usually have almond shaped eyes with the fold in their eyes making them appear slanted and their skin color ranges from yellow to brown.

You have the bad asses, smart kids, sellouts (white washed), and etc. Why don't they stand together like the blacks and mexicans? Maybe the area I live in is just like this though.

^^^exactly my sentiments. lol. plus that's the stupidest shit i heard, first of all Mexicans is one group of a larger group called latinos/hispanics. I don't feel like picking that statement apart any further.
