Have you ever seen advertisements that use faux Chinese-styled lettering or fonts emulating a Chinese style for English lettering? Well, CNN wants you to know it’s racist.
You read that right. Fake Chinese lettering is now raaaacist.
CNN has a story entitled, “Can a Font be Racist?”
The intelligent answer would be… “Oh, shut up.”
But, get a load of this nonsense:
For years, the West has relied on so-called "chop suey" fonts to communicate "Asianness" in food packaging, posters and ad campaigns. But such fonts perpetuate problematic stereotypes. https://t.co/w85xSXp0iN

CNN is seriously trying to make readers believe that decorative fonts emulating a Chinese style should now be called “racist.”
Literally thousands of Chinese-owned businesses use Chinese-styled, decorative typography for their businesses. So, that begs the question as to whether all these thousands of Chinese-Americans are racists against their own culture?
Brandon Mores had it just right….
