Pix Patisserie on Yo, Is This Racist?

Posted by Alison Hallett on Fri, Jan 13, 2012 at 10:44 AM

Yo, Is this Racist? is a totally enjoyable website that smartly explains why racist things are, in fact, racist—and, whoops, Pix Patisserie made the cut a few days ago:

Gwen asked: Yo, this photo is from a dessert place in Portland, Oregon advertising an event called “Dim Sum Yum Yum” where you sample a bunch of different desserts. Leaving aside the stupid name (the connection to dim sum is tenuous at best; there’s not even a cart!) this is ridiculously racist. So yes, I know the answer already, but I want the satisfaction of reading your response.
