*	Rice burner, a HYPERLINK
"http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pejorative"pejorative used initially to
describe Asian-made ? specifically HYPERLINK
"http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Japan"Japanese-made ? HYPERLINK
"http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Motorcycle"motorcycles and HYPERLINK
"http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Automobile"automobiles. Many variations have
also been used, such as rice rocket for Japanese sport bikes. More
contemporary use of the term rice burner, along with the prefix rice, has
taken on an alternate pejorative meaning for an automobile that has been
modified to give impression of high performance, but does not necessarily
have any high-performance capabilities (RICE - Race Inspired Cosmetic
Enhancements). 
 
 
Not a Racial slur, but perhaps that's how you use it.

Unless "Ricer" is a new automobile manufacturer that I'm not aware of, then
it's essentially a racial slur aimed at Japanese vehicles/their owners. I
consider the term offensive and would prefer not to see it on this list.
