I cannot speak for Australia, Canada, or New Zealand but as for the United States we will one day be a majority Hispanic nation. We don't really have that big of an Asian population.

Not likely. Asians do not immigrate at the rate westerners
do. Most also only choose to stick to immigrating to other
Asian countries only.

Amerindians migrated from Asia to the Americas 50.000 years ago, and you can notice it in most amerindian features asiatic traits, flat faces, high cheekbones, long straight black hair, etc.

So there will be lot of asian blood in the US (and there actually is nowadays) not only from east asian foreigners (koreans, chinese, japanese) but from the hispanics amerindian side.

You've got it back to front. There's not a lot of immigration between the Asian nations. For one, their populations are high enough.

I'd say it's not impossible in 50-100 years. If not for the White Australia Policy who knows, Australia might be majority Asian now. HOWEVER, as quality of life improves in Asia there's less incentive to move here, so maybe not.

It depends on who you classify as asian perhaps. In canada the two largest "asian" groups are indians and the chinese. Despite both coming in in large numbers indians have a high birth-rate while chinese canadians actually have a low birth-rate.

As well by the time the numbers are even statistically there for asians to become a majority the ideas of race and division will be probably be very muddled. The level of interracial-marriage or interacial-relations between 2nd generation asians (especially women) in north america is reasonably high and will likely only increase with time. White-asian relations are very common in cities like toronto and i would assume vancouver as well.

True, these nations will likely be mixed race countries, like modern day Brazil. They won't be asian or white, they'll be mostly mixed in the cities, with significant populations of unmixed around the countries, and likely big regional variations in race. I doubt race will be a very important category in Canada in 100 years, I suspect regionalism will be more important.
