Sakebar logo a bit racist?

Please explain how you could possibly come up with the idea that a picture of a Japanese woman serving Sake, on the site of a tool named Sake, is even remotely racist.

Here’s a hint: it’s called “theme”

Does that mean a picture of a burning cross or Aunt Jemima wouldn't be
racist as long as you use it as a theme? :wink:

Positive ethnic biases are ... positive.

Kimonos and sake are good things!

Unless if you wanted to throw a dart at a spinning globe and show a
Khoikhoi serving Sake...

Stereotypical perhaps, but I wouldn't say racist.

It's not like they have a few white people hanging the Japanese lady
from a tree or something...
