I saw that too and was irked as well..... I don't consider it racist but it just sounds so ignorant....
@KingJames is Lebron's twitter handle. King James has been his nickname for a long while, so it's probably a riff of that. They probably think "Qing" is pronounced the same as "King."
Qing was also a king of sorts once upon a time. So I guess they aren't wrong.
Oh, this never occurred to me. They probably knew about Qing for the first time from Joe Tsai's open letter.
This is what I thought too...which is what made me side eye it in the first place...Shit just comes from a place of ignorance.
