I am expiring this thread because the issue has been solved. Thanks to all who offered alternative views.
Just come back from Somerfield. I noticed a bag of rice produced by a Middle East company, that had the words "Please ignore all references to USA" in large red letters printed on the pack. I was thinking of writing to Somerfield about this, but wonder if it is worth it. I am no friend of USA, but I hate racism wherever it is found.
Is this offensive?
Please don't turn this thread into any form of racist rant.
