comment Neutral Terms for “White People”
I often call my Cantonese friends 死鬼佬 as a joke but I never use 鬼佬 in front of their parents or older ones. I once had someone tell me "我不讲白话" even though I was speaking Mandarin to them. Also I often hear 黑人 used interchangeably with 非洲人。

comment How do Chinese spell English words over the phone?
@Stan I guess it has to do with telecommunications technology. When I worked at a service call center we had to memorize a "A as in apple, B as in..ad nauseum" Over the phone some letters are ambiguous.
