The political correctness of a five-year old

In fairness, she could be anywhere between four and six, but this made me smile: as we were mucking about with some flashcards, my student (her name's Tomo, for those who care about these details) suddenly froze, scrutinising me intensely.

Her words were as follows:
Hana taka.
Nani jin?
Chugoku jin?
Your nose is large.
Where are you from?

Can't fault the logic. What slays me is that she's the brainy one in the class.
