Why is forbidden rice so...forbidden?

Per Wikipedia: Black "forbidden rice" is so named because originally, in China, it was considered the Emperor's rice and it was forbidden for anyone else to eat it.
It was grown for the Emporer (sp?) of China only. No one else was permitted to eat it. Thus...forbidden.
