Man, you know it. When I was over in Iraq, some British bastard called me a "Continental"! Man, I almost put a bullet through his head for that! What an insult!
*NOTE FOR THE DIM WITTED* Yes, I'm being facetious.
Chill out guys. Though I don't use use Oriental in that fashion, I don't see any reason that anyone should take offense to it. It's like calling Americans 'Continentals'. Who cares?
I am glad for the original correction though, as I hadn't been aware of that particular grammatical rule before. Very interesting to think about.
If you look for hate you'll find it. If you look for discrimination, you'll find it. If you look for intollerance, you'll find it. Have you checked the mirror yet?
