target's "asian yellow" dinnerware

Hey, Target. What's up with this Asian Yellow 16-pc. Dinnerware Set? You really couldn't come up with a better name for this particular shade of yellow? What is exactly is Asian Yellow anyway? Skin color implications aside, it's just the kind of thing you want to stay away from. What's next—Latino Brown? Bad idea. (Thanks, Jacquie.)

UPDATE: It appears that the listing on the Target website has been changed. The "Asian Yellow" dinnerware set is now just "Yellow," and all the user reviews have been deleted. I guess someone at Target must have gotten freaked out.
