Definition funny of Oriental:

urbanPolitically incorrect term used in place of "Asian." Correct usage should be an adjective for things like inanimate objects, not humans.

urbanCorrect usage: There's an Oriental rug store on Derbe Drive. or Are you going to the Oriental market? Incorrect usage: Is that dude oriental? or Orientals are known to be bad drivers.

urbanA word which originally was associated with Asia (including Arabic-speaking regions, Central, South, and East Asia). The term is used for East Asians in British English (where 'Asian' means someone from South Asia; i.e. Pakistan or India). The term is controversial in North America as it is still used in parts of Canada to denote East Asian without racist connotation or denotation; however, in the US it is considered by politically correct people (=people who read Edward Said) to connote the imperialist/colonialist period of European attitudes towards (East) Asians. Usage is, therefore, relative to a) Where you are and b) Who you're talking to. So everybody just relax.

urban"He is a specialist in East Asian Languages." PC in the USA. However, he might have received his degree from the London School of Oriental and African Languages.

urbanCan describe EITHER people or things as being from Asia. Many Americans will heatedly argue that only objects are oriental, and to call a person an oriental is now considered racist. They tell you to call them Asian or, if applicable, Asian American. But what most Americans don't know is that in the UK a person from East Asia is considered oriental, and South Asians are the ones designated as Asian. It's a relative term.

urbanUK Person: Look at those Oriental people over there. US Person: You shouldn't call them Oriental. You should call them Asian. UK Person: But they're Japanese. They aren't Indian. They're Oriental. US Person: Rugs are Oriental. People are not. UK Person: YOU are a rug. Learn more about the English language outside of your stupid country.

urbanAdjective meaning "east" Comes from the Latin, "Oriens" = east. Anything east of Europe is Oriental in the Euro-centric mind. That's why Oriental Rugs come from the Persia, not China. Oriental is associated with European colonialism in China. Especially a British image of China as once great race, but declined and vulnerable to colonization and subjugation. Negro, Coon, and Mic share similar connotations.
