Interesting. In the Canadian-Hungarian community, we have the following
distinctions of ethnicity: Chinese, Japanese, Punjab, Arab (these cover
all Asian and Middle Easterners); Black; Hungarian; and Canadian (this is
any white, non-Hungarian Canadian who is more than 2nd generation). And
"Canadians", we call "kockafeju::" (double acute on the u), meaning,
"squareheaded"...
