MSG Network might be the next media entity to apologize for a regrettable reaction to the success of the New York Knicks Jeremy Lin.
After Lin led the Knicks to a 100-85 win over the Sacramento Kings on Wednesday, the network displayed a graphic featuring the point guard. Lins face was posted above a broken fortune cookie with the words The Knicks Good Fortune on a sheet of paper.
Lin, who is of Taiwanese and Chinese descent, has been the target of disparaging tweets about his heritage since his play thrust him into the public eye. Boxer Floyd Mayweather said Lin is receiving attention on the scale that he has because he is Asian. Fox Sports columnist Jason Whitlock posted a Tweet that perpetuated a stereotype about Asian men.

I believe it is the Madison Square Garden channel.
Can`t help but think that kind of derision wouldn`t happen if Lin were a devout muslim. Further evidence of the anti-Christian bias in New America.
I wonder if Jesse-Ching Jackson-Dong will be out there to DEMAND JUSTICE for his fellow Asian?
I guess we won’t be seeing a graphic of a black NBA star with a piece of fried chicken anytime soon.
Next thing you know, they’ll say he washes his uniform in Calgon, which is the “ancient Chinese secret” to his game.
Panties are in a twist over a fortune cookie? It must be tough to be perpetually wounded.
What’s next? They’ll probably offend Asians by saying Lin is good at math.
someone needs to get a life.....
actually a flavor enhancer...and a poison to some (me)....it required me to give myself an epinephrine shot during my sons webelow pack night a decade or so back...
Fortune cookies are racist? Did Rosie get this much attention over her comments about Asians?
A country filled with so many pansies so easily offended by anything does not deserve to be the leader of the “Free World” and it would seem we are rapidly losing that status.
There must be thousands of communists, hiding in the basements, in their underwear, just looking for another offensive statement, joke, whatever so they can take the USA down another notch.
Once you come to the USA and start to reap the benefits of this once great country you drop the hyphenated loyalties and become an American and if a little fortune cookie, watermelon, fried chicken, kraut, kielbasa, drunk fighter, big nose, rag head (well they should not be here anyway), eye shape, mafia, cheese eating surrender monkey, blah, blah, joke offends you so much go the hell back to your wonderful country and culture of origin as we don’t need your weakness. If your country/culture is so damned great why the hell did you come here in the first place?
If you are 2nd or greater generation and still here then STFU about injustices 200 years ago and get with the program that many, many, many minorities have managed to do. Learn the language, customs of the USA and join in the good times we used to have.
This will fall on deaf ears (can we still say deaf?) to those Progressives as anything they can use to destroy us they will.
Conservatives need to grow a pair and stop mincing (can we still say mincing?) our words and letting Progressives be the sole arbitrator of what are considered acceptable words. For decades we have allowed the enemies from within to define the terms of debate and public discourse.
For example we have allowed liberal progressives to misuse the word gay when referring to sexual deviants : They are anything but gay. If you must us a non-medical term for their dysfunction they are SSAD for Same Sex Attraction DISORDER.
Envy pure & simple.
I think the fortune cookie was actually invented in San Francisco...
webelow pack night?
cubscouts...he was a webelow at the time...
How come we don’t have affirmative action in the NBA?
America is ready for the death of Political Correctness.
We just need a leader who will not go weak-kneed when the criticism started.
WEBELOS- We'll Be Loyal Scouts. Step above Cubs, before Boy Scouts.
Newt, Sarah, are you listening?
Yes,along with pistachio ice cream for desert.We spent three
weeks in China on a tour and had waternelon for dessert every nite.
“Panties are in a twist over a fortune cookie?”
I thought Lin was the ‘Fortune Rookie!’
LOL. I was thinking that,too.
I feel bad for laughing at this...
Let's put this in the same light as Rush and the “outraged” left.
Why does Whitlock disparage Lin's sexual organ?
Does he know that Lin is just a few inches? How can Whitlock publicly make such an accusation?
