Jerry Seinfeld: Hello? Who is this? Donna Chang? Oh, I'm sorry, I must have dialed the wrong number.
Elaine: Benes Donna Chang?
Jerry: Should have talked to her. I love Chinese women.
Elaine: Isn't that a little racist?
Jerry: If I like their race, how can that be racist?
-- Seinfeld Episode #90, The Chinese Woman, Oct. 13, 1994.
