Topic: How to say okay in chinese
July 20, 2019 / By Bert Question:
Why do people call people from countries like China or Japan Asian? Because technically someone from a middle-eastern country is also Asian but when people say Asian, they mean people with slanted eyes. If Asian isn't the correct term, is oriental or far-eastern okay? Thank you!
:-D smiley face thoughts.
@ Angelina Love. Not all people from Middle-Eastern countries are Arabs.
@Markk I know they're from Asia, the thing is that most people ONLY consider people with slanted eyes Asian and not the rest of Asia.
@Keir I'm okay with people calling people from Asia Asian but I'm talking about when people say stuff like "Asians have pointy eyes" and they only mean far-Easters instead of all Asians.
@Thinking About It lol I actually call people "human" or "person" sometimes.
@efetge kids in my class call oriental people "Chinese" even if they know that they're from (or their heritage is from) another country like Thailand and even if they're from a non-Asian country but have tan skin and almond-shaped eyes. They're the dumb students...
@Walden that's what I'm talking about. Even on google, people only think Asians are far-Easterns.
