My mom got that A LOT since she was the caucasian. ("when did you get her?" ect)
I also did also have someone use the word "Chink" about my MIL . The person thought I would be okay with it because my MIL hates me and we have a terrible relationship. I was shocked, and I said, "ohmygod, that was ssssssooooooo racist!!!" She floundered and tried to explain, and I said, "my MIL is bad enough on her own, without bringing her race into it. That's just a really bad, racist word to use." The person never used it again around me. But, jeeeeez..........
About the "oriental" term -- I didn't know either, until I learned it in college. The term oriental is okay when you're talking about a rug or something, if you don't know exactly where the rug is from, but not when you're talking about a person. Having said that, I think my in-laws to use that word, and they are Korean. But I know in academia it's really taboo to use that word about a person. Same with the word "exotic" when you're talking about a person.
