Openly racist journalist Sarah Jeong is no longer on the editorial board at the New York Times.
Liberals too often get a pass for blatant racism because of their party affiliation. Sarah Jeong is a particularly reprehensible and unapologetic racist, and she held onto her job way longer than any Republican ever would have.
Some of her tweets were incredibly vitriolic. For example: “Dumbass f–king white people marking up the internet with their opinions like dogs pissing on fire hydrants.”
She claimed that these tweets were in response to trolls, but they weren’t responding to anyone. They are her opinions that she threw onto the internet and now won’t apologize for. In one tweet she asked, “Are white people genetically predisposed to burn faster in the sun, thus logically being only fit to live underground like groveling goblins.”
Is she responding to trolls or is she just spouting disgusting and racist opinions? The latter is the clear answer. Her claims of satire and responding to trolls are her way of refusing to apologize for her racism.
So many people have had their reputations ruined for past racist comments. Why did the New York Times keep her on for so long? She should have been fired the second she failed to apologize.
