Kenneth Eng Should Have Been Exposed Before He Even Got Around to Spewing Racist Views of Blacks.

So I was reading about how a racist named Kenneth Eng was allowed to spew his hatred of Blacks via a San Francisco weekly newspaper named AsianWeek.

Asian paper’s ‘I Hate Blacks’ column assailed

A San Francisco weekly newspaper that bills itself as “The Voice of Asian America” is facing harsh criticism from that very community for publishing a column Friday titled “Why I Hate Blacks.”

In the column, AsianWeek regular contributor Kenneth Eng listed “reasons” to discriminate against African Americans. The piece has been pulled from the newspaper’s Web site, but the print edition of the free paper, owned by the politically influential Fang family, was still available in news racks Monday.

Eng called himself an “Asian supremacist” in January in another installment of the column, which runs under the label “God of the Universe.”

Prominent Asian Americans immediately condemned Eng’s current column.

First I want to say, that I am glad Asians stood up against that racist and were not afraid to speak out when they saw a racist idiot writing in a publication that targets their demographic. Although a race based publication is inherently bigoted, but I won’t belabor that point in this post.

What I find interesting, is that it took Mr. Eng attacking Blacks for people to actually start speaking out loudly enough for more of us to notice him.

Other AsianWeek columns of Eng’s — including “Proof That Whites Inherently Hate Us” and “Why I Hate Asians” — have resulted in criticism. In the first, he complained about the scarcity of Asian heroes in the media. In the second, he described Asian Americans as apathetic, brown-nosing and lacking in cultural pride.

Eng has stated in a previous column that he was an Asian supremacist, tossed race bait regarding Whites and even expressed hatred for the people he claims are supreme, because I guess he does not feel they are Asian enough. This guy is a nut job, that was already at full steam ahead by the time he said something about Blacks. I mean being Black myself it’s interesting to see the response when Blacks are attacked, but racists like Eng should be better called out whenever they toss racism, regardless of the race they attack. It seems that everyone is acutely ready to stand up for Blacks. Hey it’s nice to know you care about me, but it’s time folks take a greater stand when racist nuts attack folks other than just Blacks. I’m pointing out racist Blacks here all the time and when some Asian columnist says they are an “Asian supremacist”, that should result in a major backlash. It’s not OK to be racist towards Whites just because they are the current majority, but I think the lackluster response when Whites are the target is why Eng was able to go unnoticed for so long.

I did read a copy of Eng’s entire column. I could not find a source to link to that was not either full of profanity or easy to scroll to, but take my word for it. Eng’s column is all that it’s being claimed to be.

AsianWeek is planning to have a community forum as a result of this, where people can discuss issues of race. I see such forums as nothing more than a type of Jerry Springer show, where everyone goes in and leaves with about the same opinion, but plenty of yelling goes on. If AsianWeek wants to make things better they could simply fire Kenneth Eng. That sends the message loud and clear, if they are determined to be a publication that does not harbor racism. But they allowed this man to spew his other mess and were running his article about Blacks until there was an outcry from Asians. Community forums give publicity to the magazine, while firing someone garners far less publicity although it sends the message. AsianWeek is a name now more of us know and they are doing what will make their name even more well known. I’m not saying that I feel they asked Eng to write the article, but they are making the most of it and didn’t take issue with it until it was the popular thing to do, not just simply the right thing to do.

Hat tip Michael Savage.

You depraved people who desire to make comments here in support of Kenneth Eng need not attempt. You are NOT welcome on this blog.

    I found the full text on the angry asian man’s blog which I linked to mine. I posted the article in full on my blog, so it’s there, sans profanity* for people to read.

    Swearing really doesn’t help when you’re trying to make a serious point.

    Here is the link:

    *the illustration I used does have a swear word, but it’s part of the humor 😉

    Thanks for blogging on this too.

    Eh apparently Mr. Eng is a 24 year old wannabe sci-fi writer. He apparently hasn’t lived long enough to gather enough life experience to be a truly engaging writer…IMHO.

    His article reads like a juvenile’s angry’s hardly worth all the fuss.

    But that’s just me.
