Term Unacceptable to Chinese-Americans

June 06, 1993

I read with interest the article on Judge Donald A. McCartin (May 22). As a person of Chinese-American descent, I found his use of the term China man quite offensive.

This term has never been an acceptable name for members of my race. While defense of people of Asian heritage has never been as widely accepted by the liberals for political correctness as the defense of other races who tend to vote in blocks, Asians do have feelings too.

If Judge McCartin wishes his claim as a non-biased person to be believed, he should cease the use of the term China man. Asian or Chinese is more acceptable.
