Even if "ping pong" does convey an Asian connection, in exactly what way is that connection offensive??? Feel free to call me a honky cowboy all you like.

Serious question.

Urban Dictionary

ping pong1. a slang/racist term for what is referd to as an asian or an oriental person
Perception that the kids were named Ping and Pong

You must have dug pretty deep for that. Here's the top definition and what I came up with in urbandictionary:

ping pongThe greatest sport on the face of the EarthKen- "Did you hear Bill went on a cruise? Sounded like fun"

Look at the 4th definition on  the urban dictionary site above, the one before the “racist” one. “A sexual act involving three people” (the rest is unprintable).

I assume your title was pornographic as well as racist?
