My God, we just can't hurt anyone's feelings now, can we! This country has devolved to the point where it's truly unrecognizable. The "pu**yfication" of the U.S. There, I said it. Come on haters, bring it on.
Don't mention God. I'm offended.

Re: American Muscle Jeep 5.7L Hemi vs Teriyaki Toyota 5.7L

Yes, let's see, we don't call German cars "kraut cars" or "kraut-burners", do we? We don't call Italian cars "spaghetti wagons" or anything slse that connects their ethnic food, culture or origins to the vehicle in a perjorative manner, do we? But we call Japanese cars "rice burners" or motorcyles "rice rockets", now we hear it described as teriyaki Toyota or sushi 5.7. Why one type of car and not another? The only reason I see remarks for one class of vehicle and not another class of vehicles that uses some national/ethnic descriptor in a negative connotation is that German or Italian cars are made by white people and Toyotas/Honda/Nissan are made by Asians. Can anyone give a race neutral reason for the disparity of descriptors? Why denigrate one type of car or anything else by using race or cultural or national connotations but not for products made by Caucasians? Why not stick to the merits of point? If that is not race based comment to call it teriyaki or sushi, please correct me.

And yes, as an Asian growing up in a heavily Mexican neighborhood, I've heard it all. I was hoping we would have outgrown this but apparently not. And no, I am no liberal but quite conservative.

I am still waiting for any explanation why we use one set of adjectives for vehicles made by Asians but not on vehciles made by Caucasians. Why is it OK for one and not the the other? No, I don't think most Japanese would take too kindly to it either----perhaps those days are over as well.

Jeep Quatar has apologized and that is the end of the subject as far as I am concerned.

Sometimes you have to really live in ones shoes to really understand. It's not always as easy as some people here say is black or white. Totally agree with you here on this point.

Actually I do make some names on other cars. In fact I own an SLS AMG and sometimes just for making fun of it I like to call it Beyran Dish, Hitler Muscle....etc. And this is my car and I say in front of my German friends. What I mean to say is I am not being racist here. Just socializing a known factor in a particular country with the automobile from the same country.

I am an Arab and sometimes I have been called numerous things by my friends which I consider funny, and not racist. And some of them with food remarks. Like Kabab, Falafel, Shwarma, Kofta..Bin Ladin .

Really......it's all cool. I don't hate anybody and love everybody.

Again I do apologize if you were offended.

Me, and i lived in Asia for several years, China to be specific. Also traveled to Japan and Korea. I'm also 100% American, not of any Asian descent at all, and just didn't appreciate the inuendos. I'm the person who said something.

As far as you're concerned it didn't offend you. Great. It bothered me, so I had said something. Nothing to do with hollier than thou stuff at all. Just unnecessary to add sushi and teriyaki comments to the thread and title. It's about as intelligent as it would be to add in the "fried chicken" stereotype if discussing an African American or whatever.

Re: American Muscle Jeep 5.7L Hemi vs Teriyaki Toyota 5.7L

Let's change the title to "Cowboy Jeep vs Samurai Toyota." I doubt anyone would be offended.

Now that I wrote it, I bet someone will.

It's not just Asian vehicles. I've heard of:

wheat burners (American)

pasta rockets (Italian)

I'm an American of Italian decent and it doesn't bother me at all.

It's definitely not racist, perhaps offensive at best to some thin-skinned people.
