A Chinese?

After the post where I listed all the interns by nationality, my dad emailed me wondering why I only assigned a gender to the Chinese girl. I did that because I didn't think it sounded appropriate to call her a Chinese. Am I crazy? Somebody get out your AP Stylebook and tell me what's what.

    I did a poll around my friends (who are self-proclaimed experts), and they say that "Chinese Person" is the proper nomenclature.

  2. i know when people refer to me, i prefer "that china-man" even though i'm not a man. but really, it's all the same.
