Q: 1- How do you refer to East Asian people (Chinese, Korean, or Japanese) both formally and informally?

We call them 'slant-eyed" or "almond-eyed" informally and they don't have negative meanings (just describing their eyes shape as different from ours).

I want to say:

"The slant-eyed people are leading the field in sports like table tennis and gymnastics."

2- What is the term for an eye-shape that is like Chinese people's?

"Her eyes are ...-shaped, like Chinese!"
A: I think anything involving their eyes can come off as offensive/racist. Generally, "Asian" refers to East Asians. In America, we don't really refer to Indian people or Persian people (for example) as Asian, despite obviously being from Asia. I know in England, they call Indian and Pakistani people Asian, but not in America.

For that sentence, I would say: "East Asians are leading the field in sports like table tennis and gymnastics."
