I bet if it was a headline that said something like "giants win with Reese's n*ggardly moves", the same white people in here acting like lin's thing isn't a big deal would be doing the same exact thing in that thread too. except yall pseudo philosophers wouldn't be anywhere to be found in that one

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

dee taking this sh*t to heart.

n*gga you telling me that only ONE person's getting fired for this?

Man their whole damn office was aware of this, and how's the editor getting away scott free? sh*t's foul man. I agree that the headline was poor taste, but they did the man dirty. No way should all punishment fall on him. n*gga had to get the green light to go ahead and run it, what about those n*ggas?

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.
But even then it's still wrong. Yeah this is BX and we all joke and sh*t, but to say something like that about a race is dumb. Especially when it's about a cool, down-to-earth a.ss dude like Lin.

truth

even when black people are not the topic, these closet racists love to stir the pot and subtly spew their ignorance and hatred under the mask of "double standard" which completely ignores the historical relevance and importance to these issues

because somebody said, people are being overly sensitive which lead to the "if it was a black person....." argument.

My wife is Asian, would never intentionally say anything to disrespect her and that community.

Feel kind of bad for the dude, clearly didn't mean it in any way to be a racial slur.
