I took a big swig of Coffee before clicking on Deadspin and I hit a full spit take

The statement is fu*ked up, but I'm laughing at the fu*king GALL of doing this, days after Whitlock was forced to apologize.

This one is pretty fu*king bad. I actually predicted "Nipping At Their Heels" would make an appearance first.

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.
Im saying. n*ggas up here giggling but if you say a black player was "Running like he was being chased by the police in the hood"

Then it'd be a 15 pages on how racist espn is.

Its all good though

don't matter what they are, white, asian, hispanic, whatever... they will all take offense to it.

In their minds and online identity, they're black.

Nobody is hurt by this sh*t, but I don't think you can really compare what a random down syndrome boxden member posts to one of the biggest media outlets in the world.

Feb 18 (Reuters) - Sports network ESPN apologized on
Saturday for an anti-Asian slur that appeared with a story about
New York Knicks star point guard Jeremy Lin published on one of
its websites overnight.

The headline -- "Chink in the Armor" -- accompanied an
online analysis that blamed Lin, a Chinese-American, for the
Knick's surprising 89-85 loss to the New Orleans Hornets at a
sold-out Madison Square Garden on Friday night.

The loss ended the Knicks' seven-game winning streak.

In a statement, ESPN called the headline, which was up on
the mobile website for about 35 minutes early Saturday morning,
"offensive."

It said it was "conducting a complete review of our
cross-platform editorial procedures and are determining
appropriate disciplinary action to ensure this does not happen
again. We regret and apologize for this mistake."

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
Well the only way you haven't read that in your countless "books" is if those books came with pictures...its a very common phrase. And you're trying too hard...if something like that slave title happened, people like you would be sweeping it under the rug saying black people complain too much

there were no other racist puns, there were puns that were built around his fact that he's asian, but none of them contained racial slurs.

i get where TS is coming from, sure chink in the armor is the phrase, but in the context of Lin being asian, its just shouldn't be done. imagine if Rubio cleaned up and had a career high that lead his team to a W after being down all game. What if the headline was "Spic n Span?" I'm sure the Spanish community would just laugh if off, right?

I guess Gus johnson was trying to be derogatory

I guess everytime you describe a black woman that cooks alot as "Slaving over a hot stove", you must be racist.
