    Quoted from beelzeboob:

    Took me a second...but I just figured out what that meant.

    I tried to coin "In Before The Basement" in a different thread. I figured since Hobbit 2016 got bumped downstairs it might happen more often when a thread goes too far off track.

    The PC police like to change terms for no reason other than to act smug and in the know. Oriental from French term “orientale“ meaning “Eastern”. It was used to narrow down Asian communities of east (China, Japan, Korea ....) and Southern (India, Pakistan, ..,) Not derogatory until the PC crowd decided it was time to cry someone else is being victimized. One again separating people by saying we need to stop separating people.

    Oh no, these guys are offending themselves - http://www.orientaltrading.com/ my friend's card store use to order the bulk crap all the time.

    Quoted from pezpunk:

    It wasn't PC people who decided to change terms arbitrarily, it was people from east Asia and Asian Americans. I will never understand why old white dudes throw such temper tantrums about this kind of thing, rather than being like "oh hey they prefer to be called something else? Cool, I'll try to remember that" and moving on. Would save everyone a lot of trouble, and make you look a lot less like guys being intentionally rude for no particularly good reason.

    Well, the funny thing to me is most of my friends (even those with Asian, African, European, . . .heritage) preferred to just be called American. Drop the stupid Hyphen xxx-American because that is what is separating. I don't call myself a Czechoslovakian-American (or any of the other 3 mixed origins on the other side). And if someone did? If they don't mean it derogatory I would not take it that way.

    I know you think someone wishing you a Merry Christmas is like spitting in your face. Or they should be sent to sensitivity class if they say "God bless you" to a sneeze. They must have wanted to insult you.

    We need a poll. Is this thread going to lock or basement?

    Quoted from beelzeboob:

    ... I don't see footage of Mexicans sneaking under the fences to get out. When I do, I'll believe it, too.

    You missed a real good episode of South Park.

    Quoted from labnip:

    I know a Mexican Oriental rug appraiser

    Did you ask your rug appraiser if he prefers to be called Mexican-Asian?
