Welcome to America

A Tucson, AZ restaurant featuring Chinese takeout was the target of recent protest from Chinese and Asian communities for using racial slurs in its online website and menus. The owner, however, chose to ignore the protest.

Read its online website: "Every order is delivered via rickshaw by first generation Chinese immigrants … We really should charge more for delivery, old Chinamen are getting expensive these days."

On its menu, among others, "Don't say Flied Lice, it's not funny … there's no 'R' sound in Chinese, that's just cruel really … I know your (sic) saying it … Stop it Stop it Stop it! That's it. NO RICE FOR YOU!!!!"
