Neha Inamdar, on the Mother Jones blog, nails the issue:
That’s a pretty egregious slip past the editors. And here’s the thing: Kenneth Eng, a self described “Asian supramicist” wrote two previous columns for AsianWeek titled, “Why I Hate Asians” last month, and “Proof that Whites Inherently Hate Us” in November.
I’m curious to know why the editors didn’t feel impelled to reject his “hate speech” and “racial agenda” back when they published these other columns? If his aim was to get people thinking, enraged, but thinking, and they stood behind that premise before, why not stand behind him now? Instead they fired him, and they look irresponsible on the national stage.
And if publishing this column was indeed a mistake, then so were the others, and they’ve let a few too many mistakes slip on by.
