Yes, it is Racist Engrish Week at Engrish.com. This means that every day a new photo that contain references to race, racism or are even racist by their very nature will be posted. There is one Engrish photo I took personally that I have been afraid to put up for a while – which will be obvious when you see it this week (make sure to come back this Wednesday if this piques your interest). Engrish.com does not condone racism – we just want to expose it!  

As usual any questionable (especially racist) captions will be deleted. First time poster’s captions will be reviewed before allowed on the site, so please be respectful of other’s races.

    So suspensful. I sure am looking forward to Wednesday.

  • Kitsune

    I’m surprised it wasn’t “Lasicst”

    I don’t want to overuse the “R” vs. “L” thing. It loses its charm.

  • coffeebot

    Man, I want that t-shirt.

    For a long time, I’ve been going to Engrish.com and continue to laugh at the silly photos of poorly-written English scripts that foreign people screw up on continuously. As well as going to the “Not Always Right” site, which my brain breaks by just going there. I really love the photos you supply for us.

    Especially this one. Keep it up!

    They are not really screw ups. They are usually just direct translation from Japanese to English using a dictionary. I don’t really know what to say about the Racist shirt, though; other than the fact that I love it.

    The 3-color rainbow is almost as enigmatic as the text.

    “Engrish.com does not condone racism – we just want to expose it!”

    The thing is, I doubt that most of the people who made these signs and the T-shirt were intending to be racist. Honestly, do you think most people in Japan have READ “Uncle Tom’s Cabin”? (Not that most Americans have either…)

  • engrishwebmaster

    @Xenobiologista: I kinda meant that tongue in cheek. You are right – most, if not all of the entries on the main site and the brog are not intentionally racist.

    So did the “Uncle Tom” Jazz Cafe underwhelm you all? Maybe I built it up too much…

    Racist Week: offensively not offensive enough?

    I really want that t-shirt, man.
    I’d get jumped the second I walked out of my house wearing it, but I WANT IT.

    The Care Bear we never knew.
