I don't hate black people, I just love yellow people

Ok, I’m not entirely fond of black people.

The editor of a weekly newspaper calling itself “The Voice of Asian America” on Wednesday apologized to community leaders and fired a columnist who wrote a piece titled “Why I Hate Blacks.”

In the piece, which appeared in the Feb. 23 edition of San Francisco-based AsianWeek, contributor Kenneth Eng lists reasons why he supports discrimination against blacks - including because “they are the only race that has been enslaved for 300 years.”

A statement on the newspaper’s Web site said Eng, 22, had been fired.

What if this is some devious ploy by an Asian conspiracy to prove that Asians needn’t be the subject of modern-day educational quotas, because they’re not so smrt after all? YELLOW PERIL!

Here’s a reprint of the column, for those who enjoy seeing a man self-destruct.

I like General Tso chicken.

Satire is protected speech, isn’t it?

This must be a clever satire of a common but silly argument. The story doesn’t mention censorship by any government entity. It discusses private outcry.

In any case, Eng must be as canny a satirist as you. I’ll bet he’s kicking himself for failing to add a :) emoticon at the end of his column.

Damn, Dirt gets around.

How does the editor not get fired too? Seriously, it would have been pretty easy not to publish that piece.

Contrary to media depictions, I would argue that blacks are weak-willed. They are the only race that has been enslaved for 300 years. It’s unbelievable that it took them that long to fight back.
Look, I don’t hate jews.

I’m just saying it strains credibility to imagine that any group could be persecuted for millenia without having done something truly horrible to deserve it. And I think that it’s time they finally come forward, confess, and apologize.

Fang’s family publishes AsianWeek, along with a local newspaper called the Independent, and owned the San Francisco Examiner between 2000 and 2004.

Apparently quotes don’t count for the 5 character limit.

More Eng hijinks here.

This ccomment in a thread elsewhere about this is golden.

Describe one recurring dream you have?
Escaping this prison of a planet and physically entering the 0th Dimension as an anthropomorphic shark.

Fuck YES.

Wow. If only every P&R thread resulted in something so awesome.

“Interesting,” muttered Dennagon to himself. “The force of gravity is 9.8 meters per second squared on this planet, but not in space. I wonder if ‘space’ actually exists.”

For me this reads like a quote from Aqua Teen Hunger Force.

That art is soooo bad it’s fucking awesome. I’d soo buy a shirt with the fuzzy dragon on it.

If you’ve ever been to Asia, you’d realize that these newfangled ideas of “racial harmony” haven’t exactly made it over there yet.

If a guy spends his life growing up around FOBs, he’s likely to have some of those ideas rub off on him.

Edit: Is that a rocket launcher on red robo dragon I see there? My goodness.

Without even taking his eyes off his book, he casually thrust his fist out, punching a hole straight through the head of one of his enemies as it charged. The decapitated body still handing from his forearm, he merely shifted his fist to the side so that the others could run into it. Expectedly, they did, blasting apart their own skulls against his scaly knuckles.

Oh yes! Kenneth Eng fucking delivers.

Depends on the race.

I wonder what would have happened if it was a black man writing about why he hates yellow people?

How is it that Asian periodicals in San Francisco are so hard up for writers that they will publish this guy’s shit? I mean come on, I’ve seen 6th grade school newpaper articles that had more professional form, nevermind the content. He graduated from New York University? Not as a journalist I hope!

How much you want to bet he went through college handing out cards to girls in his classes that read “Kenneth Eng, Novelist”?

And that shit about Rush Hour being racist? WTF? Jackie is THE MAN.

Kenneth Eng obviously has some serious penis envy.

Rush Hour is kind of racist. Good thing I’m not Cantonese.

OK, yeah, I haven’t seen too many Filipinos who were racist.

But I could pick out times when my S.O. and her dad had some interesting things to say about Japanese and Vietnamese.
