Inspired by comments: do the terms "Asian" and "Oriental" describe the same peoples?
Oriental isn’t even a race. It describes inanimate objects, like rugs.
Oriental has been outdated for a long time.
Yes it can, however Asian can be a wider term and oriental usually refers to East Asians. I use just Asian to describe East Asians because there are specifics when referring the rest of Asia like South Asian (India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, etc.), Middle Eastern, and Central Asian (Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, etc.).
No, oriental is Far East Asians
Think about Israel, Turkey, Russia, etc.
