From a Feb. 28 report by Tamara Barak of Bay City News Service:
AsianWeek Editor-at-Large Ted Fang today said the columnist who penned the piece “Why I Hate Black People” last week will not contribute to the free paper’s content again.
Fang refused to clarify whether an editor reviewed the column and allowed it to go to press and did not answer questions as to why Eng’s previous two columns, “Why I Hate Asians” and “Proof That Whites Inherently Hate Us” had been printed.
“We are humbled and overwhelmed by reader response — not only chastising our editorial process, but urging us to sever our relationship with Mr. Eng. We have heard the call and Mr. Eng has been suspended,” Fang said. The statement prompted several people in the crowd to ask why Eng wasn’t being fired, to which Fang responded that Eng would not write for AsianWeek again.
