Whatevers... being called "oriental" (at least in the US) doesn't automagically mean Chinese - it's like a general description for any Asian.

I don't find that offensive. It's like you, saying that Americans are based on Colors and should be offended about it.
If I'm correct, then it should be Caucasians. Mongoloids goes for the yellow skinned people and the rest are the rest.

Instead of digging through your dictionaries, go learn something about denotation and connotation.

i agree, i don't find it offensive at all. it just depends on how they say it i guess. if it's not racist sounding. i kinda find it humorous sometimes also. but yeah .. India/Pakistan. i don't know why, but i don't consider them Asian. cuz they weren't part of the continent before.. just got placed there. I just call them Indians and Pakistanians. ahah.
