This is beyond ridiculous.

The NY Times claims to be one of the nation's "papers of record."

They just announced that they have hired Sarah Jeong for their "editorial board."

This person has a very material history of posting blatantly and outrageously racist tweets.

We are not talking about one or two instances or someone on a one-off basis "drunk posting"; this is a person with a pattern of said behavior, in public, over a material period of time.

Two examples from Daily Caller (there are in fact dozens trivially discoverable and publicly available):

“Dumbass ****ing white people marking up the internet with their opinions like dogs pissing on fire hydrants,” she tweeted in 2016.

Another tweet reads, “oh man it’s kind of sick how much joy I get from being cruel to old white men.”

Does "#metoo" only apply to women and does racism only apply to other-than-whites?

The NY Times fired a dude not that long ago for posting nasty things about blacks and gays -- just hours after they had hired him.  So the standard is here, and now we find out if this is a newspaper or if it's a propaganda joint that literally hates whites, especially old white people, and thus has FORFEITED any claim to be a "newspaper."

Just replace the word "white" with "black" in any of those messages and tell me what her job prospects would look like.

The NY Times has hours to make up its mind and do so publicly -- and if it does not immediately fire this person and publicly state that it has done so due to her blatant and outrageous racism then it is clear that all white people should and indeed must permanently boycott not only the NY Times but all of their advertisers now and forevermore.

UPDATE: The NY Times has now stated that they knew this new hire was a racist before they hired her and they did so anyway.  They have made excuses for both her behavior and their excuse of her quite-clear, rabidly racist views.  IN SHORT THE NY TIMES IS NOW AS A COMPANY RACIST -- VOLUNTARILY AND INTENTIONALLY.

I've been saying for decades (not just years) that the NYT is public enemy #1 of the People.

CNN was and still is public enemy #1 in the category of broadcast media.

Here's some good, real news: Trump's approval rating with likely voters just hit 50%. http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_c....

How is this good news? It's good news to me because I want the Trumpster ( aka the Trump Monster) strong enough, popular enough and angry enough to feel like he can try and kill the MSM. And in the process kill himself.

If I'm lucky, I'll live to see the day in which Trump becomes a powerful Titan --- powerful enough to behead the Medusa Media. And, as we all know, Medusa's head can still turn Trump to stone after the fact.....

Clash of the Titans, as articulated by the Three Blind Witches, would be a happy ending for me regarding the Medusa Media and Monster Trump...

I guess she likes kicking minorities around. Since the Asian Race is between 2.5 and 4.5 billion people depending on who you include.

So depending once again on who you include there may be a total of 1 billion "white" people on earth. 50% of those who might be male. So she is a racists who likes to pick on minorities.

However in the US white males would be about 30 to 35% of the population so the NY Times would like to demographically alienate 1/3 of the possible readers of their trash paper. Guess the newspaper industry is doing so well nowadays that it does not need the white male demographic.

I remember back in the early 1970's when I was in High School reading Gay Talese's book "The Kingdom & The Power", his story of The New York Times.

Once upon a time I think they were a great paper, a pretty liberal one, but I think their slide started a long time ago, maybe around the time of Watergate. In the last 25 years it has picked up steam and when Pinch Sultzberger took over the slide got faster.

Undoubtedly the worst President and Publisher ever, he pretty much destroyed the paper, certainly in a financial sense by terrible decisions, and by the Editorial Decisions he made for the paper.

Now we have Pinch's idiot son, Pauper, in charge and the slide continues to oblivion.

As a number of minorities have told me that only whites can be racists, because they have the power.

My answer to them is HORSE HOCKEY!

Some of the worst racists I have EVER met have been black.

This is probably because I've never actually known someone who was a KKK member, for example -- at least not that I ever discovered. But I've known several black people that were quickly shunned as soon as I discovered their ENTIRE IDENTITY was about hating white people -- which made their decision to try to associate with me not curious, but rather frightening -- if they hated me for the color of my skin then their attempt to associate with me was quite-clearly for some nefarious purpose!

If you have any common sense at all you run far and fast from such people, for they're the very ones that will seriously harm or even kill you given half a chance.

Racists come in all shapes, sizes and colors -- and while it's not a crime to be one that sort of thing in a position of public responsibility (such as is the case with a journalist) is outrageous.

Common sense dictates that we are compelled by the things we are familiar with. I contend that if you had a group of 100 strangers that had never met before, but were forced to spend time in a closed room together, they would first divide into gender groups. There would of course be some over lap, but you would soon have groups of mostly men and mostly women. From there they would divide into groups based off of skin color, social status, religion and so one.

I believe most of the people would not even realize they developed into groups.

Does that make any of them bigoted? NO! It means we are more comfortable with what we are familiar with.

The problem comes when people start calling others names and in my opinion "racist" is one of the worst names out there. It implies you are white, it implies you are probably male, it implies you think you are superior to others and it is almost impossible to defend against.

In the eyes of the race baiter the only way you can defend yourself against that word is to give into their cause. And when you give into their cause, you do become racist.

I am white, but grew up a minority, there were far more, Native Americans, Mexicans and Pacific Islanders, but there were more whites than blacks. About the only times I was not surrounded by other ethic groups was during family gatherings. I was called just about every name in the book, except racist.

The word "Racist" is being used to stifle white people and it is being used quite effectively. My wife was born and raised in Mexico, she can and does say things that are very true yet she is not considered racist.

If I say 1 tenth of what she says in public, even white people think I am being racist. Wait...What??? The dark skinned Mexican woman just said X,Y,Z and you are ok with it, but when the white guy agrees with her, he is racist!

**** the NYT, **** Starebucks, **** Twitter, **** Maxine Waters, Al Sharpten **** the race baiters, and especially **** the pussies who are allowing this to happen to their fellow American citizens.

This is not going to have a happy ending.

Karl - I do not have a whole lot of exposure to black people, and don't disagree with your assessment of some black people being super racist, but from my point of view Native Americans just might have some of the blacks beat in that department.

You see Tommy on the street, he talks with you, you guys are buddies and you kid around. You go out to a pow wow, stick games or function and say "Hey Tommy". Tommy is like what are you talking to me for white boy. The next day you see Tommy on the street again and he talks with you, you guys are buddies and you kid around. I have also experienced the same thing within the Mexican culture, just not as blatant.

You roll with it....At least that's the way I learned to handle it. Tommy still likes me, but not when he is with his people smiley

Nope, nope and nope.

Karl -"Someone does that sort of thing exactly once around me and they're instantly banhammered from my life."

I get exactly where you are coming from, and as the person I am today agree 100% with your point of view. But to be fair to myself that is the culture of where I was raised and those behaviors started when I was in kindergarten.

I no longer live, care to live or even visit that area any more. I am not the person I was. I also believe those experience have caused me to view the racism that is being spewed The Failing NYTs and the likes as the evil social engineering it is.

If you, us, we as individuals can not have self respect first, we cannot truly respect others regardless of their differences.

I give everyone I come into contact with respect, but when they do not give it in return, I have and will continue to distance myself from those people. And since moving from that area I have on numerous occasions done just that.

And I truly appreciate your perspective as it helps me to know I AM on the right path.

The word "Racist" is being used to stifle white people and it is being used quite effectively.

I totally and completely disagree. The word "racist" is: 1) Used almost completely incorrectly anymore. It is spewed out by ignorant dolts when what they really mean is "bigot," and 2) Used sooooo much, and so incorrectly, that at this point - it has NO meaning anymore.

If someone calls you a racist, just ask them, 'So the fact that I demand and expect equal opportunity for equal ability for EVERYONE - regardless of the pallor of their skin or where they come from, that makes me a "racist"? Ok then, I'm a "racist". The word has no meaning anymore.'

And then walk away....
