Is white on rice a racist idiom? No! It simply means that if you’re on top of your tasks like white on rice, it means you’ve got it covered the way rice is covered in whiteness. In Geneva Smitherman’s Talkin and Testifyin, she relays a lyric from Frankie Crocker that goes, “Closer than white’s on rice; closer than cold’s on ice.” Now that’s close! This is part of a complete episode.
