Us Asians never refer to each other as Orientals. I don't know how you Western people started associating our people with our food.Oriental is not just food, it literally means from the Orient, i.e. from the East, and that includes people. You obviously don't refer to each other as Oriental because you're not at the East of yourselves. (in other words, Westerners didn't suddenly start referring to people as Orientals when the expression "Oriental food" was already widespread, the word originated for people)
If I struggled to the end of my determination, to the end of my way of life with my followers, if the result is ruin, then this ruin is inevitable. Grieve. Shed tears. But you cannot regret.
