8 Asians

Around two years ago, 8Asians had a TalkAbout post where we discussed whether the phrase “chink in the armor” was offensive to say or not. While it was decided that it depended on the context, it’s safe to say this ESPN headline of “Chink in the Amour” describing Jeremy Lin’s performance against the Hornets definitely fits in the “I’m pretty sure that’s offensive” category. The headline for online publication was quickly retracted an hour later with an apology. Oh, ESPN! Quick to use puns like “Linsanity” when stars rise, quick to use racial epithets when they fall.
