Race Free Headline Pulls PC Trigger
The folks at ESPN are so race free in their love of Jeremy Lin, that they were oblivious to the potential for misinterpretation of their “Chink in the Armor” headline that followed a New York Knicks Loss.
ESPN has apologized for using a racial slur in the headline for a story about Knicks phenom Jeremy Lin. The headline “Chink in the Armor” appeared on ESPN’s mobile website after New York lost to the New Orleans Hornets Friday night, the Associated Press reported.
Lin, a Harvard graduate, is the first American-born player of Chinese or Taiwanese descent and has become something of a sensation in recent weeks, inspiring the term “Linsanity,” and is Tim Tebow-like in the sense that he’s very outspoken about his faith.
The enlightened ones here are the folks who write headlines at ESPN, no? The PC movement/radical left is making America crazy.
New York sports network MSG generated controversy during a Knicks game Wednesday after it aired a fan‘s sign showing Lin’s face above a fortune cookie with the message “The Knicks Good Fortune.”
