    There will be a lot of "oh, lighten up" by folks who would be at the gates with torches and pitchforks if ESPN had made a 'funny' about a black player using a 'play on words' involving N****r.

    ESPN Racist Jeremy Lin Headline: Network Apologizes For Insensitive Headline For Knicks Loss

    There seems to be this pent-up need to give voice to childish bullshit that every once in a while gets some asshole in trouble, brings mild recriminations to his organization, and then a ton of spin and apologist nonsense.

    They could have thought of a MUCH better headline than that. I can see how Chinese folks could consider it a racist headline and slam. They could have said a "kink in the armor" or just thought of a better headline than the one they came up with.

    Chink in the armor is a saying that's as old as armor.

    Time to grow up just a little bit there kiddies.





    the assholes asking people to call in with racist jokes about asians should be off the air though.
