Racist or just obnoxious

So, in theory, if a friend and I sang (to the tune of Georgy Girl) this -- drunkenly, loudly and repeatedly -- to the only Asian girl at a party:

"Hey there, Asian girl. Only Asian girl at the whole party"

...would you classify that as racist or just spectacularly obnoxious?

Actually, the lyrics are:

Hey there, Georgy Girl. There's another Georgy deep inside. Look at all the love you hide. The world will see, A new Georgy Girl.

From "Georgy Girl" starring Academy Award nominated, the ever loverly Miss Lynn Redgrave.

It depends on the Asian girl. If it were Margaret Cho, she'd probably laugh. However, Miyoshi Umeki would have cut you.

Definitely a little of both, with a strong emphasis on the latter.

The question is, how did she react? Was she smiling and laughing and letting it roll off her back or....

And here I thought only straight guys were allowed to be douchebag frat boy types.

At least you sang "Asian" instead of "oriental", although I never understood what's so horrifyingly offensive about "oriental" anyway. Asian people are from Asia, and they're also from the Orient, either term should be acceptable.

Did your song entice her to climb down from the roof?

R7, she left the party -- not immediately, but after a while. She could have probably diffused by laughing, calling us faggots and telling us to shut up. We would have been her new best friends. But she kind of slunk out.

It actually happened 15 years ago, but something reminded me of it yesterday, and I still feel like a jackass.

Are you the same guy who raped your college "friend?"

Uh, no, R12.

I note that the moronic parody lyrics do not scan properly.
