Huge difference, dude. Chink in the armor is a regular phrase. Just because someone uses it to describe an Asian doesn't make it racist. But, other than that, I agree that black people will blow things out of proportion quickly.
so white people calling a asian a chink is black people pulling the race card

Since when is Chink in the Armor a regular phrase? I've never heard that term in my life and I've read countless books.

Slave to the ____________

Is a regular term...I wouldn't say it's the most common thing in the world, but it's been said often.

Here's another one:

Put a hard working black person on front and headline it:

working like a slave

yeah... if it was a random headline with a black athlete reading "slave" or "nig.ger" we'd probably see this all over the news.

But since it's an asian, they'll just let it slip.

I'm half black and half asian btw...

People are generally more openly "racist" with asian people because most people think it's ok and there will be no repercussions.

With black people, people are generally more racist against "behind" the scenes, but amongst friends it's obviously joking...


At the end of the day, the dude who SAID it on ESPN and put it up on the headline needs to be fired. I mean, it is not a coincidence that it just happened to be Jeremy Lin when he decided to use this term, out of the millions of other terms he could have used. This was no fu*kin accident, and you'd have to be one delusional moron to think so.

Well my initial point was that this will probably blow over because it's just an asian guy... but judging by the early media coverage of it, it most likely will not

What is the meaning and origin of ‘chink in the armour’?

(Aswin, Chennai)

This is an expression that has been part of the English language for over 600 years. When you say that someone has a chink in his armour, what you mean is that the person has a minor fault which is likely to cause him problems. In other words, the person has a flaw which can be taken advantage of by other people. The expression can be used with things as well.

*The up and coming star spent hours looking for a chink in the champion’s armour.

The word ‘chink’ has nothing to do with a ‘Chinaman’. This ‘chink’ is a rather obscure word meaning ‘slit’ or ‘narrow opening’. In the old days, as a form of protection, soldiers used to wear armour. If the armour had a slit, then it became a weak spot, which enemies took advantage of.
can't believe you've never heard that phrase.
