Black + Asian or Half Black, Half Japanese

Afro-Asians or African-Asians (also known as Black Asians or Blasians), are persons of mixed African and Asian ancestry.

Historically, Afro-Asian populations have been marginalized as a result of human migration and social conflict. The term Black Asian may also be used to describe Negritos (blacks indigenous to Asia); therefore Afro-Asian is a more scientifically proper term to describe Black Asians with direct African background or ancestry.
