San Francisco Chronicle

Article by Leslie Fulbright on the front page of today’s San Francisco Chronicle:

Ling-chi Wang, retired chairman of the ethnic studies department at UC Berkeley, said there is an urgent need for Asian Americans to be aware of the history of this country and know that Asian American gains have come largely as a result of the efforts of black people.

“Personal experiences cannot be generalized,” Wang said. “It is really sad to see the racism sentiment being expressed so publicly. I can’t believe Ted Fang would allow such a column to go to print. It is really offensive and damaging and is not one that contributes to a better understanding of diversity.

“I was very disappointed to see it published, and I’m glad there are people protesting.”
