Then let’s say east-Asian, or (horrors) that old term “Oriental.”

A very good friend’s mother is Japanese and her father is white American. That term really bugs her, so I use it often. I was walking through a neighborhood in Beijing when ahead I saw two black men talking. I thought, “There’s something you don’t see everyday, black Americans in China - I think I’ll go say hello.” As I walk up to them I realized they were speaking Chinese, and there a couple of mixed race kids playing nearby. Blew me away - black Chinese - I never even thought of it. My point is that we make an awful lot of assumptions based on some pretty flimsy evidence...
