Was wondering in North American culturure I always thought it was PC not to refer to people as Oriental but instead by country of origin or Asian. Am I wrong on this. Can someone help me research this? I am wildly curious.

Can you describe or define what sort of a source you need? It's very difficult to ascribe a point of origin for something nonexistant. Never having read anything on nonexistentialism I can point you no further perfectly accurately (if that counts as expertise.)

In mostly white societies they are considered one and the same and are treated equally disrepectfully.
Orient means east
Asia is most of the east ...
...except for Austalasia.
-which doesn't count because the most powerful factions in those regions are white and not just white but of the very, very best source of whites. (Unless you count the German emigrants but hell we even started the ball rolling with crooks in the first place. And everybody has to start somewhere.)
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?

I can't cite anything beyond the company that I work for, an Austin based Americam company, stating that we will use the word 'Asian'. I never thought Oriental was offensive.
