ye it is annoying haha. People trying to change the definition of the word.(Original post by Scarlett2111)
'Oriental: The term is used for East Asians in British English (where 'Asian' means someone from South Asia; i.e. Pakistan or India).'
Seriously,it's so annoying!
tbh I've never actually heard anyone say south asian my whole life. When I first saw it on student room I had google it and find out what they meant lol.
everyone I know just says the country. Or when they say asian they pretty much mean china/korea/japan/etc. lol.
