Question marks abound

Mac’s default dictionary application sources from the Oxford American English Dictionary. I looked up “diaspora,” and it gave me this definition along with a sample sentence in italics, the bold emphasis being mine:

the dispersion of any people from their original homeland : the diaspora of boat people from Asia.

Say whaaaaaat?

Yes, now that I think about it, I would like to find those boat people ancestors of mine.

Head, meet desk. Face, meet palm.

    I think when they say boat people they might mean the original asian ancestors who came over from Asia on boats and walked over the ice to Alaska or something along the lines of that. Lol when I first read it I was like, you mean my family from China?
