Because they don't know what it means, so they assume that it's a racial slur. Although it is kind of funny how they thread maker thinks they're being referred to as rugs...

WTF?? I'm Chinese, and i cant believe u started such a dumb thread...if anything, i prefure to be called oriental as in the UK , asian generally also includes indian, pakistani etc. and we are so different to them. I love all races, and i love japanese korean ,philli ,thai,etc, but u tell me what word can i use to generalise all the races i love without offending some ignorant twat?

Allot of people have made valid points above and shown the flaws in yr hastey statement. I hope u reconsider not being offended by the word oriental, (not that i give a crap), and you associating the word 'rug', is a joke, just shows how insane yr mentality works.

Orientals used to mean people of the Near/Middle East. I don't know how it got to apply to people of East Asia....
Posted 8/5/08
its not offensive as the term oriental is more specific than asian
asian refers to anyone in asia - western asian , central asian , middle-eastern asian, and eastern asian.
where oriental refers to people from eastern asia. i.e. china , korea , japan.

i do not understand why the topic starter thinks thats racist.

Well. Maybe People that live in America doesnt think the same? but I think it is really offensive.

It is like calling black people the N word. Even some black people think the word N are really offensive because of the history.


Like I said CHINESE PEOPLE ARE PEOPLE, NOT RUGS


Trust me there are way worse racial slurs that chinese people have to face. Oriental isn't degrading like the N word or the Chinese C word equivolent.

Oriental is just an old word that refers to the east (Occidental is the western counterpart). It doesn't refer rugs as much as the origin of the rugs. Also Oriental includes both the far and middle east so basically everyone in Asia is an Oriental.

Knowing that do you still think it's racist?

I don't think it's offensive... Haven't been called Oriental before and don't expected too now -.- oh and yeah... the ching chong thing gets really annoying and it pisses me off -.-

The word "Oriental" for me is more like Asian in general. If I recall there is those Instant Noodles that is Oriental flavor. Then there's that one store that got big a few years ago. It was Oriental Gifts or something and there was more than Chinese stuff there. What's offensive is just chink 8P
