ramen is…racist?

Hey! We’ve been linked on HuffPo! On an article…called…ramen…is…racist??

Those of you in the know have probably heard the terms shina soba, which predates “ramen.” “Shina” came to be regarded as a slur against China.

“…to eat shina soba in those years was to symbolically gobble up China itself. As China represented the empire’s biggest prize, a bowl of shina soba represented nothing less than world domination.”

So it’s a provocative title, but the article’s informative and a fun read. Check it out here.
