Well... how's it working out for you, being married to a regular ethnic person? Uh, Malaysian? Hmmmmm...

I love how they list continents and then switch randomly to specific countries. And Chinese is the only East Asian country listed. As if they could tell the difference between Chinese, Korean and Japanese children. Yeah, uh huh... right.

Well, at least they didn't say oriental.
