It might be tasteless but how is it connected to any race = racist?
I once ordered soup (I didn't know it was soup until I got it) at the airport in Hong Kong. They gave me chopsticks and I couldn't find a spoon anywhere. I swear there must be a reality TV show in China that features white guys trying to eat soup with chopsticks. I managed to not get anything on my clothes and to this day I am proud of that.
