Asian Week Prints: 'I Hate Blacks'
Do the publisher's even read the pieces before they go out. Granted the author, Kenneth Eng, has written op-ed articles entitled, "Proof That Whites
Inherently Hate Us" and "Why I Hate Asians." However, this paper in which the article was printed states that it is, "The Voice of Asian
America." A bit shocking I would say.
San Francisco NAACP President Amos Brown, who heard about the column from a Chronicle reporter, was speechless at first.
"I can't believe this," Brown then said. "I am surprised the Fangs, who have supposedly been involved in interracial-understanding issues, would publish something like this. I am flabbergasted. We can't afford for these kind of racist flames to be fueled in that kind of setting."
AsianWeek issued a statement regretting "any offense caused by the one opinion piece," and Editor in Chief Samson Wong declined further comment.
Eng's "reasons" for hating black people include:
-- "Blacks hate us. Every Asian who has ever come across them knows that they take almost every opportunity to hurl racist remarks at us."
-- "Contrary to media depictions, 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, including the Rev. Al Sharpton, tend to be Christians."
