I don't care much for the racist title.

Please explain how you believe this is rascist? I could have named this action and reaction. The facial gestures were mother and daughter playing a "game". Ping Pong is a game. Frankly, I thought this was a sweet photo without any unintended undercurrents.

Even if this was true, you should have the common sense to see how it might be interpreted. In every regard, this is for the bin!

You still haven't explained why you think my title is rascist. I'm waiting for an explanation...

Drop the act, nobody can be that dumb.

No act. I don't appreciate being accused of being rascist. I'd like to know how your mind works. So let's hear it. Or is this a figment of your distorted imagination..

Apparently the name ping pong was coined in 1910 in Victorian England because of the sound the new, American, celluloid ball made when it was hit back and forth. Previously it was called whiff whaff after the sound of the champaign corks that were used when playing after dinner across the table. Nothing to do with race whatsoever.
