: I know this subject came up before on this MB, but with a racial comment made recently, i would like to pusue it again.

: Even though I am not a Japanese, but I am an Asian, and I am deeply disturbued by comments such as "rice boys" and "rice-burning crap".

Dear Richard--

I have to agree with you that the other terms you mentioned have very racist overtones, but I have to disagree with you about "rice boy" and "rice burners". Those terms are used without racial connotations--my fiance Nancy is Asian through and through. As we drive around in my M roadster or her Honda Passport, she'll often exclaim, "Alan! Check out that riceboy car with the 8" exhaust!" We both have a good laugh at the car in question, and usually can not tell a thing about the ancestry of the driver because the windows are way tinted.
