Its Hard Out There for a Hater

More proof that bigoted haters come in all races and colors. An Asian-American writer, Kenneth Eng, wrote a column for the AsianWeek called Why I Hate Blacks.

“I would argue that blacks are weak-willed. They are the only race that has been enslaved for 300 years.”

What could this idiot have been thinking?

Now, of course, there will be right-wing nutcases and left-wing nutcases will use the controversy to push their ridiculous agendas. This also opens up an opportunity to have have complex discussion about racial bias, the multi-ethnic makeup of the U.S. and how we can move past the ignorance. The real question is whether or not we will use this opportunity to shed light or simply to generate heat.

Check out AsianWeek’s statement of apology here.

    Now, just reading that, it certainly sounds like that is true ‘hating’. Racist based hating. Quite different is ‘Hating’ people that want you dead, that is a natural survival instinct and is more than a human ‘right’, it may be a duty. Hopefully Mr. Eng’s work will help some of those that scream “HATER!” and “RACIST!” every time someone complains against people or ideologies that officially ‘hate’ them and want to ‘kill’ them, that there is quite a difference.

    absurd thought –
    God of the Universe says
    don’t hate evil support it

    Hi Michael,

    What would you do about this type of statement of opinion?

    Granted, his opinion smacks of deeper symbolism personally, that is he’s put a lot of thought into the condition, history and treatment of blacks, in America, I assume.

    Is what he said really hateful, or a reasoned summary of his personal research, flawed though the results may be?

    This was not a Tim Hardaway moment.

    Is there a perceptible difference between the two men, or does saying anything at all that might have even the appearance of bigotry, where you draw the line?

    Where does contrary opinion, reasoned dissent from political correctness, and even the occasional stupid comment meet the line you would draw regarding free speech?
