Re: “Alameda Mayor In Hot Water Over Racially Insensitive Comments

I don't understand how the "white rice" comment or hugging and kissing derogatory to the Filipinos. I'm a Filipino and eating rice is nothing to be ashamed about. Just because she said the word white to describe the rice, is understandable because there are different kinds of rice here in California. Wouldn't even be an issue to a Filipino. For a foreigner to make mention of our cultural practices is nothing derogatory. Now I wasn't there when she made the comments so I don't exactly know the context and tone that was used, but it's pretty shallow to be offended by "white rice" comments.
