I think that Ms Meng should now propose a law that would require China to change the name of the Oriental Pearl Tower to the Asian Pearl Tower, because she is offended by the word Oriental!

The problem is that these other ethnicities can still call caucasians 'white'. While i know many white folks don't mind being called white, I cannot understand why blacks or orientals/asians have a problem being called what they are.

Seneca, Maori aren't black, they're brown and they can call me pakeha, or white. I don't care. I cannot, however, call them anything but Maori. NZ is PC'd all up the wazoo!

Vote right wing, call a spade a spade and to hell with those who aren't adult enough to stand on their own merits regardless of colour/ethnicity.

We're kowtowing to their sensitivities and are, in the process, becoming emasculated ethnically while empowering these wimps.

Does this mean, also, that the Orient is no longer able to be thus named or called?

I cannot abide PC. Whoever initiated all of this crap needs to be subjected to derogatory slander for the rest of his/her life....and that's just being nice.
