It was funny. ROFL

Fox Sports’ Jason Whitlock apologized for an insensitive-at-best, and racist-at-worst, tweet about Knicks guard Jeremy Lin, which Whitlock posted after Lin’s 38-point performance against the Knicks on Friday.

In a thinly-veiled reference to a stereotype about Asian men, Whitlock tweeted, “Some lucky lady in NYC is gonna feel a couple of inches of pain tonight.”

On Saturday, the Asian American Journalists Association (AAJA) demanded an apology from Whitlock.

The tweet “doesn’t hold up to the conduct of responsible journalists, those in sports or otherwise, who adhere to standards of fairness, civility and good taste. Nor does it meet the standards of Fox Sports, with which you are associated,” the AAJA wrote on its Facebook page. “Outrage doesn’t begin to describe the reaction of the Asian American Journalists Association (AAJA) to your unnecessary and demeaning tweet.”

Later Saturday, Whitlock, who is black, wrote on FoxSports.com, “I've cried watching Tiger Woods win a major golf championship. Jeremy Lin, for now, is the Tiger Woods of the NBA. I suspect Lin makes Asian Americans feel the way I feel when I watch Tiger play golf.

“I should've realized that Friday night when I watched Lin torch the Lakers. For Asian Americans and a lot of sports fans, his nationally televised 38-point outburst was the equivalent of Tiger's first victory in The Masters. I got caught up in the excitement. I tweeted about what a great story Lin is and how he could rival Tim Tebow.

“I then gave in to another part of my personality — my immature, sophomoric, comedic nature.”

Funny stuff. But for those saying this is harmless, remember that this is the guy who stood in front of the line with pitchforks when Imus made comments about "nappy headed hos" and Rush made comments about the media wanting black QBs to do well. The comments wouldn't be a big deal if not for the fact that it shows what a hypocrite he is.

If by "stood at the front of the line with pitchforks" you mean "called Imus irrelevant and ripped Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson for making a big deal out of it", then yeah, that was him.

I could be misremembering, too, but I thought JWhit's point about Sharpton and Jackson was that the two are essentially profiteers who vulture such incidents, thus perpetuating a problem while not exploring or advocating a solution.

I think his big point re: Imus was that rappers call women bitches and advocate violence and nary a word is said by black leaders like Jesse and Al. But an old white guy on the radio makes a tasteless joke and they're holding press conferences and protesting outside his studio.

His Lin tweet was funny, but it boggles the mind that someone who wants to have credibility in discussions on racial topics would be that stupid. And that "apology" is weak sauce on toast. He should have just tweeted "ME SO SORRY. ME LOVE LIN LONG TIME".

Now that was funny I dont care who you are. Look the problem we have in this country about race is to many use it to hurt people. I have heard some white comedians say some stuff that had me cracking up, but had someone on the street said the same thing i would have cracked them over the head. I really like people and have grown up with and met some people of different races that are like family to me, but i know their heart and they mean no one any harm. They could say some things to me that i would try to put others in the hospital for only because i would feel like they are intentionally trying to hurt me.

I believe the term is Murato.

I don't see what this has to do with anything. The issue here is dicks. (Which, by the way, raises an interesting issue.) Chink dick may be small, but Chink dick is, apparently, effective, for there are billions of Chinks - many of whom sport Chink dick. However, the Chink government doesn't want lots of Chink chicks and encourages Chinks to have male Chink children with Chink dick. They even punish Chink dick that makes Chink chick. This accounts for the vast number of Chinks with Chink dick. Now, this may mean that the Chink government believes that more Chink dick is necessary due to the fact that Chink dick only comes in one size; Mr. Taco John. Or, it may mean that Chink dick tends to make Chink chick and not more Chink dick which may support the tiny Chink dick argument. Either way, it has nothing to do with golf.

His mother was Asian, his father African-American.

How does that work?

Both his father and mother have some Asian in their ancestry according to Tiger's wikipedia page (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tiger_Woods):

Woods was born Eldrick Tont Woods in Cypress, California, to Earl (1932–2006) and Kultida (Tida) Woods (born 1944). He is the only child of their marriage, but does have two half-brothers, Earl Jr. (born 1955) and Kevin (born 1957), and a half-sister, Royce (born 1958) from the 18-year marriage of Earl Woods and his first wife, Barbara Woods Gray.[13] Earl, a retired lieutenant colonel and Vietnam War veteran, was of mixed African American, Chinese, and Native American ancestry. Kultida (née Punsawad), originally from Thailand (where Earl had met her on a tour of duty in 1968), is of mixed Thai, Chinese, and Dutch ancestry. This makes Woods himself half Asian (one-quarter Chinese and one-quarter Thai), one-quarter African American, one-eighth Native American, and one-eighth Dutch.[14] He refers to his ethnic make-up as "Cablinasian" (a syllabic abbreviation he coined from Caucasian, Black, American Indian, and Asian).[15]
