Chinese media outlet uses racial slur at US envoy (It takes hacks to spot a hack)
Yahoo News ^ | 02/28/2014 | Didi Tang

Posted on 02/28/2014 9:37:21 AM PST by AngelesCrestHighway

A major Chinese government news service used a racist slur to describe the departing American ambassador in a mean-spirited editorial on Friday that drew widespread public condemnation in China. The article — which called Gary Locke a "rotten banana," a guide dog for the blind, and a plague — reflected Chinese nationalists' acute loathing toward the first Chinese-American to have been Washington's top envoy to Beijing. But whether it would draw diplomatic protests was unclear; attempts to contact officials at the U.S. Embassy in Beijing got no response Friday.

via the Racial Slur Database:

'Banana: An Asian American who has lost their heritage. Yellow on the outside, white on the inside.'

“So what is the racial slur?”

What ISN’T a racial or homophobic slur these days?

Well, for once the Chinese are telling the truth, and just wait until they get their gut full of Baucus! They will end up calling him a worthless drunk, which again will be a truthful statement. We continue to send our “human crap” to China.

Banana. Yellow on outside, white on inside.

Twinkie is also used.

It’s like Oreo.

Funny thing is Locke is quite friendly and apologetic with regard to the Chinese Communist regime.

Well, there's a thoroughly racist term ... right up there with "oreo". It's mildly amusing to watch "minorities" exhibit extreme racial bigotry.

Unlike our Presidents, who are white or black on the outside, but Chinese, Mexican and/or muslim on the inside.

So I wonder what name they’ll call Locke’s successor, Max Baucus, who’s fleeing all the way to China to get away from his Obamacare law.

There could not be a more deserving country . . . with the possible exception of Saudi Arabia.

Not so different than Jimbo Carter and the Iranian regime . . . and they loathed him.

I still fondly recall Walter Cronkite in tears at the split screen with Reagan's swearing in on the left and the hostage airplane on the Tehran tarmac on the right. The Iranians wouldn't allow it to take off until Reagan was sworn in. And all Walter could do was blubber about Carter doing all the work to free the hostages and Reagan getting the credit.

Reagan, class act that he was, asked Carter to be first on the plane to greet the hostages when it arrived on American soil.

Unfortunately, these countries gauge our “intellect” by these people, and we keep sending them idiots!
