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.
