Racial Slur Assault on Jeremy Lin by Mainstream Media Must Be Punished and Stopped
- zdan, CNN iReport producer
The racial slurs by the otherwise mainstream media are appalling. They must be stopped and the perpetrators punished. For those who want to call this concerted attack on this Asian player on slips need to note that the attacks come from all over.
Even Saturday Night Live in a skit showed the absurdity I wonder if many realized. While any black sounding racial attack (fried chicken, etc) was immediately seen as offensive, even the black “commentators” were oblivious to their own use of Asian racial slurs.
Bottom line, those who use the slurs in 2012 know exactly what they are doing. All civil rights organizations must get involved and nip this now.
