Politically incorrect term used in place of "Asian." Correct usage should be an adjective for things like inanimate objects, not humans.
Correct usage: There's an Oriental rug store on Derbe Drive.
or
Are you going to the Oriental market?

Incorrect usage: Is that dude oriental?
or
Orientals are known to be bad drivers.
