the term "oriental" is incorrect and potentially offensive. we don't call white or black people "occidental"

From dictionary.com
oriental (adj): denoting or characteristic of the biogeographic region including southern Asia and the Malay Archipelago and far as the Philippines and Borneo and Java; "Oriental politeness"; "for people of South and East Asian ancestry the term `Asian' is preferred to `Oriental'"; "Asian ancestry" [syn: Asian] n : a member of an Oriental race


You're both right.

I know this. I wanted to put "Asian" but-- it's a song lyric.

I always heard "Oriental is for rugs; Asian is for people".
