How Stupid Do You Have to Be to Write or Publish “Why I Hate Blacks”?

If you haven’t heard about this yet, then let me be the first to let you know. In the February 23rd edition of SF-based AsianWeek, contributor Kenneth Eng wrote the column “Why I Hate Blacks.” Now how stupid do you have to be to want to write this column at all? Not only is the title of the column racist, but the whole brief column is racist:

“Blacks hate us. [Asians]

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

“Blacks are easy to coerce. This is proven by the fact that so many of them … tend to be Christians… Correct me if I’m wrong, but wasn’t Christianity the religion that the whites forced upon them?”

And secondly, why did AsianWeek even publish this column? A publication should be open to a diverse range of opinons, but not something so blantly offensive and stupid.

Rightfully, Asian-American organizations all over the United States are condemning this column.

I don’t know Kenneth Eng, but apparently he is in his early 20s and looks like he definitely needs some growing up. Eng’s tagline for his column is “God of the Universe.” I thought God loved all of his people!

Well, we know for sure that Eng is clueless and AsianWeek made a mistake. Let’s hope we can all learn from our mistakes.
