Hey! We’ve been linked on HuffPo! On an article…called…ramen…is…racist??
Those of you in the know have probably heard the terms shina soba, which predates “ramen.” “Shina” came to be regarded as a slur against China.

So it’s a provocative title, but the article’s informative and a fun read. Check it out here.
