Did the big wing, phony aero, sticker powered, slammed, stretched tire, gawdy paint stuff start with Asian enthusiasts or just with Asian manufactured cars?

Is a dri-ft car with all the gawdy crap everywhere treatment a ricer also? Is it not "rice" because it has performance to go with the tacky looking parts?

No real answers here, just questions.
Hmm. I didnt think about it that way. I guess its just coincidence that it was Asians that drove the imports.

Yeaah. rice is no longer a term in reference to the origin or make of the car.

In my opinion there's a difference between a tastefully (even if not your tastes) done show car. Great...not my cup of tea to make a car look good and drive worse. And Rice which is, do aesthetic mods on the cheapest dollar you can get, cutting corners everywhere..even where not possible and leaving body kits unpainted.

Also, in dri-fting the "Showy" is part of the sport yes, but in terms of aesthetics for the body modifications they are often simplified. Yes they are bigger lips and lower bumpers with bigger holes. but it's a simplicity and clean lines style that also is not indicative of "rice". Plus..well the power is there to back it as are other parts and chassis mods.

Well in any event, CA has the most Asians of any state with an estimated 4.4 million, compared to 1.3 million in NY.

You retard, it's a skit about stupid racist ****. Dave Chappelle plays a blind black klansman who thinks he is white.

Parts of the skit:
-He gets confronted by a bunch of racist whites who want to beat him up, but he doesn't understand they are talking to him so he tries to join in and beat up the black guy. They become confused and leave.
-He calls a bunch of white kids listening to rap "*******." The white kids are like "that black guy called us *******!" "Awesome!"
-He publishes a book and then takes off his klan robes at the book signing. Lulz ensue.
-He divorces his white wife because she was a "------ lover" for marrying him.

A sense of humour is the ability to experience humour, although the extent to which an individual will find something humorous depends on a host of variables, including geographical location, culture, maturity, level of education, intelligence, and context. Satire may rely more on understanding the target of the humour, and thus tends to appeal to more mature audiences.

If you don't know Mr. Chappelle, or Comedy Central, how about the term 'irony'?


Racism is reviled because it is criticism/hate based on something one can't control, one's race. Likewise, one can't control whether or not they are a 'Newb' or not.


Now if you were to say you preferred to not have any references to racism -at-all-, that would be more understandable.

Umm. Isn't this thread in the BS section? Sorry but smart *** and controversial comments are allowed here!

Wouldn't expect someone with the name Spike to be such a nanny.

Welcome back Hustler! Missed your controversy around here. Look forward to info on your build.

I know who Dave Chappelle is,I don't really care for his ****,he's not all that funny.

Many highly respected leaders that represent the black community consider him a disgrace.

I have a cousin who is mentally handicapped. I could be offended by your Urban downs Syndrome sig. On an internet forum you are an unknown. Race, sex, physical condition, etc. For all you know I could be a 12 year old Somalian quadrapalegic girl with aids and a plate in my lip. People are also apt to make comments on an internet forum that they would never make in a face to face conversation. Similar to everyone is a tough guy in his car, it's even more so on the net.

If you can't take the occasional racial comment on this forum you need a thicker skin or should stay out of the BS section.

Besides. It's just like an Asian to blow this out of proportion!

Syrup off a duck's back dude.

Well like you said,this is the BS section,so I guess pretty much anything is fare game then(according to you).

I have a pretty thick skin,I can take it & also dish it out real good.

We Asian's like to do things BIG,gotta get people's attention you know.

Based on what I've seen in this thread, this is false.

This whole racism crap is a load.

I wish everyone would quite being a pussies and get over it. When I am called a white boy, I don't care. When my hispanic friends are called beaners they don't care.

But the Black college fund is OK. I would like to see you open a white college fund. LOL LOL LOL.

Anyway. I have been a minority my whole life being white. I can't get the easy way in school. Jobs:Well sir we have to hire a minority, mabe you can get a job here later.

Or "hey, there is the white kid". And I get into a fight because I'm white.

It is all crap. The people that yell racism, ARE the racist.

And don't even try to say I am prejudist. My best friend is black. And my girlfriend is hispanic.

And as far as the comedian. That Was FUNNY!

And as far as asians, most of them around here really have nice things. But almost all of them that I work with admit they can't drive. LOL


No pun intended.
