Come on. There's Chinese right in the logo. Avatar's world was conceived from day one to be based on Eastern mythology and culture. The creators purposely drew from non-Western sources and hired experts to help them with the martial arts and design of that world. They even managed an amazing degree of multi-ethnicity within that Asian-themed universe. To argue that the characters weren't Asian goes against the entire point of the show. A fantasy world, that for once, wasn't all white.
And good chunk of the cast *was* Asian - The dearly departed Mako as Iroh, Dante Basco as Zuko, Jennie Kwan as Suki, and others.
