Chronicle: AsianWeek undecided on whether to keep author of racist column

From an article to appear in today’s Chronicle:

AsianWeek Editor at large Ted Fang said Tuesday he regrets publishing a controversial column titled “Why I Hate Blacks” in this week’s edition but has not decided whether to keep its author, Kenneth Eng, on his staff.

“Whether he will continue is under review,” Fang said. “I can say his views are not the newspaper’s views. It is very unfortunate that the column got in the paper. It should not have been published.”

Fang would not say whether he personally approved the column, which appeared in the free weekly’s news racks Friday.
