Apparently this ad from GOP senatorial candidate Pete Hoekstra (Michigan) ran during the Super Bowl:

Sweetheart, if you’re hoping to parlay that ad into an acting career, you’ve got to work on the accent or you’ll never get the “stereotypical Asian” parts.

Needless to say, I found the ad offensive, but mostly because it’s misleading—everybody knows Michigan doesn’t have any jobs for China to steal. Unless we’re talking about private security.

Check out the website, too.

Foreign Policy’s blog ran a post on why Chinese—i.e., Chinese people living in China—might not necessarily be offended (or offended not by the racism, but by making their country look like Vietnam).
