New York Times Hires A Racist

Spot the get-out-of-jail card: 

The New York Times announced Monday it hired left-wing writer Sarah Jeong, who has a long history of racist tweets, to be the lead technology writer for the newspaper’s editorial board.

Yes, Jeong’s racism is excused because she hates whites – e.g.: “white people [are] only fit to live underground like groveling goblins”, “cancelwhitepeople” and “Dumbass fucking white people marking up the internet with their opinions like dogs pissing on fire hydrants”.

Another:

Oh man it’s kind of sick how much joy I get out of being cruel to old white men.

Substitute any other color and see how that flies.

But this is the one racism that the New York Times will bend over backwards to excuse – and by accusing others of racist abuse:

She is a young Asian woman have made her a subject of frequent online harassment. For a period of time she responded to that harassment by imitating the rhetoric of her harassers… She regrets it, and The Times does not condone it.

Brilliant playing of the victim card.

I can see why the NYT is desperate to hire a technology writer who boasts that “I was equating Trump to Hitler before it was cool”. This is someone it can easily slot into the desk next to Trump-deranged Paul Krugman and Thomas Friedman.

But will the NYT now excuse angry whites who in turn respond to Jeong’s racist abuse by “imitating the rhetoric” of their harasser, and being equally and deplorably racist in their abuse of her?
