White on rice, again

Posted by Casey on December 30, 2003

Hi all. I searched the archives and googled, but cannot find the origin of the expression "like white on rice". My sister insists that it is a racial expression and not to be used by polite society.

I understand the meaning, it's the origin (and whether or not it's racist) in which I am interested.

Thanks!
