Fox commentator Bo Dietl goes all-out on Don Imus’ show the other day, even pulling his eyes back to make the point that Katie Couric looks “Oriental.”
She looks like a Halloween cartoon. She’s got her eyes pulled so far, she’s starting to look Chinese herself. Enough with these face lifts, alright Kate. And enough with the young guys Katie. You’re over the top baby. You’re over 50. Start going out with guys your own age. This cougar stuff don’t work.
Ten years ago, she looked American. Today she is an Oriental.
I don’t know what Dietl has against Couric, but really? To use an entire ethnic group as an insult?
Of course, there’re announcers calling NBA star Jianlian Yi Chinaman, so it’s clear that sportscasters pay absolutely no mind to what is deemed racially offensive by those funny-looking Orientals — or, er, Asian Americans.
The “it’s OK to make fun of Asians” file is getting so full, weâ€™ll have to create a subcategory: File this one under â€œitâ€™s OK to use Asians to make fun of people.â€
