If there was a competition that was held for "whites" only, it would be deemed racist. 

 

Racist.

Plenty of competitions are restricted by nationality, domicile, ethnicity, gender, sex, and/or religion, and others are restricted by economic/social/cultural background in fact if not in name. (For instance, this competition being posted in English on a website that may or may not be actually accessible from China already excludes a large portion of the Chinese population.) As competitions are private events run by private organisations that is their prerogative. If you don't like it you can write them a letter or something.

I'll refrain from slamming my head against the desk, but just know that the thought is there.
