Opinions: Is it Racist?

#1

Ok I’m not sure if this will get any traction, but excuse me for a second to provide some context.

I was recently scolded publicly for the use of the word “Oriental”, when describing a type of food, Vaguely I might add, and with no negative connotation whatsoever. I was wondering if this happens to any other Infowarriors. I recently watched an Aziz Ansari comic bit where a crotchety old woman is considered racist for referring to Asian people as “Oriental”. Which I would agree probably wouldnt be a good look. But seriously the viture signaling involved for someone to berate another human over the albeit casual use of a risky(?) term.

I think it is an intrusion into someone free thought in the form of casual speech, and then questioning their morality. It’s too much. Maybe I’m wrong, just my thoughts.

Am I supposed to believe this is racist?

Time to Boycott Ramen Y’all. This ones gonna be tough. But I believe in you. Stay strong.

Out.

Only academia conditioned self-loathing whites are offended by the term “Oriental”. They think it offends Asians as it is an Eurocentric term therefore in our current political climate, it must be racist and it along with all western institutions be torn asunder. Damned be the usage for the past 2000 years to describe lands to the east of the Roman Empire, as oriens (east).

Asian’s don’t GAF.

Just tell the jackass to properly toss off.
