Why? Because New York Times hired an editor called Sarah Jeong and stood by their decision. Sarah Jeong is “somewhat” racist. She talks on Twitter like a KKK grand cyclops talks to his best friend after 2 cartons of beer. Click on any of these screenshots to verify. At your own risk, they are really bad:
Needless to say the liberals are standing by her because according to them racism is not judging someone after his race, but some bizarre nonsense about historical systemic power difference or whatnot. Because a guy surely can’t commit a hate crime against you if you are historically privileged. Also needless to say, the conservatives are up in arms against her, including the president of the USA who retweeted one of the articles condemning her.
No, I won’t join the chorus. I want to point out that it’s about nothing. Tell me, how many NYT columnist do you know by name? Have you ever bothered to read their editorials? Do you think that they ever persuaded anyone about anything? They are just preaching to the liberal choir who reads them. After all…
It’s a big nothing. Your life isn’t affected by her hiring. Your life wouldn’t be affected if she is fired and subsequently starts “Stormfront for Asians”. You don’t have to read her crap, no matter where she publishes it. So please don’t waste time with such “cultural politics”! If you want to be political, fine, follow actual politicians doing actual changes instead of nobodies being racist on the internet.
What can I add?
