Need an asian's person point of view....is Chink a term used to degrade you guys? Do you find it offensive? If not he aint deserve to get fired

i never knew asians had a specific name that people called emi thought people calling them all chinese was the worst it could be
yea chink is probably the worse one. just nobody uses it really the anchor probably didn't think about it when he said it. just reading off of notes(which he could of got off the espn site) and teleprompters and all that.

the writer had time to think about what he wrote. i thought he was just going to be fined and/or suspended. oh well

I say n*gga, Chink, f*ggot all the time but c'mon, you have to be professional. You can't have that in a headline. It's unacceptable.

If Lin wasnt Asian that headline would have been fine. However since he is Asian, that can be read two ways, one way is a racist way.

The guy who wrote it prolly was not trying to be racist but since that word as dual meanings with one of the meanings being derogatory, he should have nvr used it.

so saying 'chink in the armor' was coincidental? :rolleyes:

too sensitive? maybe. HORRIBLE judgement on the writer's part? absolutely.

Yup, and that's all that matters. Its not like it was in the privacy of his home or a casual conversation. Most people don't give a fu*k what you do if its not out there like that.

Chino in the armour is the correct term not kink so it could be seen as a mistake. Chink is a narrow crack or something by definition. But how it made it that far without a editor shutting it down for sounding to close is amazing

If a phrase had a double meaning and was offensive to black people, we would have a 600+ post thread about it, with people calling for the offender to receive a life sentence in prison. But since he's Asian, we'll just downplay it as the "pussification" of America.

that was the funniest line in the movie.

"Get me another beer dragon lady"


But its considered "funny" with asians. Change the asians to black people and this site would implode

the only reason why I found this movie funny (except the end) was because its like Clint Eastwood was playing himself... although he's not racist. He just seems like an old angry guy for real. "Puss-cake" just k!lled it for me though, because I never heard it ppl just say you're a pus*y, but puss-cake

so lemme get this straight:


- white people sh*t on lin

- then certain bx members say it's not a big deal

- then other bx members say "if he was black it'd be a big deal," even though every racial thread on this site has people (usually white) belittling the issue at hand

- and now black people are villains for hypothetically defending themselves in imaginary scenarios? what do black people even have to do with this jeremy lin situation? if you're asian and you're upset, then defend yourself it's black people's fault that you're not mad enough?

- meanwhile, the culprits are kicking back sipping lemonade while you're getting butthurt because some imaginary black people are riding harder for themselves than you do for yourself



ironically, these cats who are mad over this lin issue and getting on this "if he was black" sh*t are the same f*ggots always talking about somebody "pulling the race card" whenever it's a thread about a black person getting sh*tted on. funny how yall left this part out. people on here faithfully find a way to trivialize black issues, then yall wanna come in here and get mad at black people because these same white boys who troll the black threads are now trolling the asian threads? or because black people are treating your disrespect the same way you treat theirs? fu*k outta here
