stephen a smith had some valid points but he was also tap dancing

those journalists should be professional no matter what and they shouldn't get a pass for saying racist sh*t

people have an idea of whats offensive but they like to stir the pot and say it anyway

smith is acting like these people are completely oblivious to what they are saying

Smith was not defending those 2 guys. He was defending, in general, a person's right to learn, grown, and change.

I understood what he meant but they didnt address the issue at hand...they avoided culpability since it was ESPN and redirected the conversation...Bullsh*t...

the way stephen answered it it made it seem like it was black reporters that called Lin a chink or used the word Chink but i know the reporters last names dont seem "black" i think one of the reporters last names was Fredrico or some sh*t

but i agree....if they fukked up and were just trying to be funny, suspend them, reprimand them but they didnt need to be fired......people are to OVER THE TOP sensitive when it comes to race in america imo...i understand being sensitive but alot of people go out their way to make something out of nothing

i thought "chink in the armor" was witty lol, then again i find alot of racial jokes funny

a lot of you guys are speaking like children in this thread. smith was perfectly on. in life sometimes people say things that they dont know will be interpreted as racist. those people should be given second chances to make amends. IF they then screw up again, they should be fired.

and he brings up black racism because he and also everyone else can better relate to it as a reference than asian racism.

No, he sat there and all but said the only term that we should be sensitive to in our culture is the N word. Like there aren't similarly derogative and downgrading terms for other races and groups of people in the world.

*edit*
and you can honestly pretend like peopled don't KNOW derogatory terms for african americans, hispanics and asians? The same people must not know any curse words either, right?

Props to Skip for referencing the SNL skit, which pretty much summed up their entire conversation in a more hilarious fashion.

i dont think everyone who says chinc in the armor is trying to be disrespectful to jeremy lin. I damn sure didn't think anything was wrong with it. i've never even heard asians called chink or whatever it is, what does it even mean?

the only racial term i acknowledge as bad is a white person called a black person a ******. anything else, i rather just call someone a bi*ch.

He's just saying people need to quit being overly sensitive and unforgiving...No one man knows every single thing in life, and if they don't have the opportunity to LEARN from their mistakes and better themselves, then what's the point of even trying. It's one thing to know what's offensive, ignore it and continue being offensive...like he said, all bets are off then. Otherwise, wisdom is earned with experience. If you've never experienced something or made a mistake, then how are you supposed to know better?

About 8-9 years ago, I was hanging out some guys I played football with (some were black) and I called one of them an Uncle Tom. I had absolutely no idea what that even meant, much less that it was offensive. They didn't get up in arms and try to f!ght- We were all boys and they told me what it meant and why it's not cool to say it. Given the chance to learn from my mistake, I did so and am a wiser/better person because of it.

Just for the record, that saying is commonly used all the time in sports and it only became an issue because of Lin's Chinese background. So it's really hard to say whether the reporters were using it as a racist remark or not.

He was saying that the sensitivity that has developed over sayings had developed over the white/black issues...that is the foundation of all peoples movements throughout the world since like the 50's...the womens rights movement, the gay movement and any other movement that happened in this country. When dealing with race, its a sensitive issue (just like the native americans in college sports) is because of the progress that was made in the civil rights movement. That kinda opened the door.

Going back to the issue, yes I think it was a white dude who wrote the article, the issue was race, not white on black but white on asian, if it was the 50's nobody woulda said sh*t but that was before the movement, since then, the things people say are checked...simple

who in sports uses that word regularly?

and most people who have had the chance to go to different parts of this country know most of the offensive words...plain and simple
