What terms are offensive to different Asian cultures? I obviously know chink is offensive to Chinese, but is Jap offensive to Japanese? Is there a derogatory term for Koreans? How about Thais? I feel rather good about myself knowing my vernacular does not contain any of these defamations but I’d like to know them so if I say “Jap Porn” I’m not offending an entire nation.

Don't call Koreans gooks. The bad word for Japanese can be Japs, but usually it's nips.

http://rsdb.fuck.org/Very fist entry says Slur: 51st Stater, Represents: Canadians. As a Canadian I can say any Canadian who finds that a racial slur is a moron :roll: . Anyone can submit a "slur" at the bottom and get it listed. I suggest everyone take that site with a grain of salt.

As for all the information, very informative. Thank you.

Ya Know, I've always wondered how come I never get offended when somebody calls me a Canuck. I think we Canadians are gettin' left out of the ball game! If we started to get offended and pissed off, we could cause all sortsa trouble, and have a ton O' fun!

Hmmm... I never really thought about those being slurs before. I always figured Jap was just the lazy mans way (short for) Japanese. Nips was short for Nipponese, and Flips, the same! Course, it'd sound funny to me to hear us Canucks called "Cans" :D
Anybody remember when Hunky Bill's perogies got pulled off the shelf because some Idiots decided he wasn't allowed to call himself a Hunky? I think Hunkys are Polish, but I'm not sure. I think most Country-related "slurs" are just lazines on the part of those of us who sorta speak the Anguish languish. (english language) Racial slurs have been blown all out of proportion. eg: How black do you have to be before it's Ok to say "Hey my nigger?"

I fail to comprehend how that particular image denigrates and disparages an entire race. My own dear departed mother, (although she wasn't a "woman of color") {cough cough} had been known to wear hankerchiefs wrapped around her head and to serve pancakes in the AM with the most Goddam cheerful attitude I've ever been unfortunate enough to suffer through. (As you can tell, I am not, and have never been a morning "human".)

Political correctness=censorship
http://www.fredoneverything.net/Marx.html
Quote from that page if you can't be bothered to read the whole thing.

"All of this would be of academic interest only, if the same spirit, under other names, were not so very active in America today. We see it in a variety of disguises. When Russia practiced censorship, we called it " censorship." Here, we call it political correctness. You still have to look over your shoulder before saying the wrong things. The difference is…what? In Russia, Marxists preached class warfare. Here they preach multiculturalism. The difference is…what? The Russians, unable to speak openly, passed around samizdat. We have the Internet. The difference, other than efficiency, is…what?"

"Black against white was an obviously useful fault line that the hard left didn't invent but has CAREFULLY CULTIVATED.. Opening the southern border amounted to importing a divisive class. Setting women against men was remarkably successful. Fanning homosexuals into hostility provided yet another serviceable resentment. The emotional terrorism practiced against boys is school (cops-and-robbers is violence), hate-speech laws, the punishment of dissent (as for example by being fired) are all the Soviet Union writ small. So far."

has anyone ever seen ghostworld?
enid gets her 'found art' displayed at an exhibit. Very much similar to your aunt jemima kind of picture (actually, picture the little sambo head enlarged). The people at the exhibit found it so offensive, that they took it down.

it's because that one picture makes the entire movement step back a century. that picture, which is ONLY a picture. why do people have to look at something so innocent and find it offensive? (when i saw it, i was nostalgic for my childhood). does it make you ashamed? will hiding the problem that existed beforehand make all racial problems disappear?

censorship is not helpful; claiming political correctness is a sham. how about educating people to realize that they're ONLY stereotypes and nothing more?

note to anyone who found that picture offensive: do NOT, i repeat, do NOT watch the simpsons. = )

the very 1st article I found... (out of context of course, just to support my "side".
"Within six chapters, the author explains the evolution of the Aunt Jemima image in the post-Reconstruction South and through the 1990s on a national scope. Since the "mammy" held literary and historical attention for such a long time, the image of Aunt Jemima became a historical stereotype."
"In 1893, a living Aunt Jemima debuted as a legendary cook at the World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago. The "real" Aunt Jemima distributed her life story as a pamphlet and through advertising vignettes in popular magazines."

Awful lotta comments on Canadians here! I honestly don't know the first thing about what would offend Canadians. (South Park the Movie, anyone?) But getting back on topic... as an Asian, I know all about slurs, so here's my two cents.

As others have said, most "short" versions of Asian ethnicities are considered offensive by us. Jap, flip, chink (short for "Chinese"), etc. ... all no-nos.

A slew of others off the top of my head: nip, chinker, gook, buddha head, Charlie, raghead, camel jockey, kimchee, kung fu, bruce lee, sushi... you get the idea. And that's not even mentioning the sexually harassing terms. Before anyone says anything, yes, folks from the Middle East and India are Asian.

It's very rare for Asians to use derogatory terms in reference to themselves, the way many African Americans use "nigger." So if you're trying to make friends with a bunch of Asians, don't stick your hand out and exclaim, "Whassup mah kimchee!" That would be like me going up to a bunch of white guys and saying, "hey crackers! I'm down with y'all honkey white trash rednecks!" Sounds obvious, but there are some pretty tactless people out there (to put it mildly).

CrazyAL

Austin HAHAHA love the mousepad.

But as for the Indians... First, we just established that "camel jockeys" is not a particularly endearing term. Second, I have to say that it's simply a matter of ignorance that you don't "really" consider them to be Asian. Indians (and other ethnicities from the surrounding area) are South Asians. Middle Easterners are also Asian. Technically, they're certainly more "Asian" than Filipinos, who are a mix of many things - Spanish (EUROPEAN, that is) blood being a major factor. Yet few Asian porn webmasters would hesitate to include them.

What westerners typically think of when they think "Asian" is East Asian - fair skin, black hair, dark brown eyes; or Southeast Asian - typically darker skin than East Asians, black hair, dark brown eyes.

The thing that makes this difficult to understand for non-Asians is that there are so many flavors of Asians. This is certainly true of caucasians as well, but at least here in the US, white skin = member of the white majority, almost regardless of precise ethnic background. To you, the difference between Japanese, Korean, Cambodian, and Indian mostly comes down to how they cook their beef (if at all) or average skin tones. To me, there is a world of difference in terms of appearance, culture, ethics, religion, behavior... the list goes on. But the fact is that we're all Asian. Period.

If the Internet porn industry has found that East Asians are the most widely accepted and demanded, it should come as no surprise. Most of this stuff is coming from North America, for a North American market. And NA's idea of beauty includes fairer skin, IMHO, as being the dominant desirable characteristic. Toss in rampant gross misunderstandings relating to Indians, South Asians, and Middle Easterners (terrorism, Islam, and natural resources, in particular), and it's no wonder that NA considers them less attractive... and even goes so far as to forget that they are Asian.

Austin
07-26-2002, 12:54 AM
I think camel jockeys and sand niggers are more middle eastern. I would categorize India as middle eastern also. I think the most obvious characteristic of Asian women is their slanted eyes, the epicanthal fold. And what is with the Indian women? They all seem to have dark circles under their eyes. And what about that dot on their forehead? Is that a LAN cable modem hookup?
