First there was Kramer's tirade.
Now comes Kenneth Che-Tew Eng telling us "Why I Hate Blacks."
Kenneth Che-Tew Eng was a contributor to the San Francisco-based AsianWeek -- before he was suspended for writing the anti-black piece displayed below.
A self-described "Asian Supremacist," Kenneth Che-Tew Eng also wrote columns for AsianWeek titled "Proof That Whites Inherently Hate Us" and "Why I Hate Asians."
(Both posted below before they pull them.)
And now editors of "The Voice of Asian America" weekly have apologized.
AsianWeek's editor-at-large Ted Fang and editor-in-chief Samson Wong were feeling plenty of heat for running Kenneth Eng's so-inane-it-would-be-laughable-if-Eng-didn't-really-believe-it-immature-essay.
I just feel sorry for all the Kenneth Engs out there being mistaken for the racist essayist.
But I can partially see where Kenneth Che-Tew Eng's anger is coming from.
My Chinese friend was called a "chink" in her Northern California, mostly white, hometown.
And remember Mickey Rooney's portrayal of an Asian landlord in Breakfast at Tiffany's?
When Bruce Lee saw that film, it made him really sad.
Kenneth Che-Tew Eng is young, in his early 20s.
He's got lots of living and maturing to do.
The backlash from his writing will probably help him do it.
But I do agree with Kenneth Che-Tew Eng about Asian men not being cast often enough as leads, especially romantic leads.
"Asian men aren't sexy," said my one Korean coworker, married to a Korean man.
Sounded like some of the same self-hatred blacks ascribe to.
Not until I saw beautiful Tony Leung in The Lover did I realize the dearth of roles like that.
Once again, instead of violence coming to Kenneth Eng, I pray he uses this lesson in losing his writing job as a turning point.
Hate only begets hate.
Time to try love, Mr. Eng.

Why I Hate Asians
by Kenneth Eng
Jan 12, 2007
It seems like an odd title for an article written by an Asian Supremacist, but there are very good reasons why I hate many of my own kind.
The first thing I hate about Asians in America is how so many of them want to suck up to whites. I have had fistfights and verbal altercations with many who discriminated against me and my people.
Sadly, however, the Asians who witness or hear about these battles often hate me for being "hypocritical," and tell me that "two wrongs don’t make a right."
Do these sycophants think it’s "cool" to mindlessly side with whites and blacks? Is it not enough that we have to fight against discrimination? Now we have to fight amongst ourselves as well?
The second thing I hate about Asians is how little pride most of them have. This may be the result of societal brainwashing, but whatever the cause, it must stop. I am repulsed when I see Asian guys speak with British accents in an attempt to sound sophisticated.
British people can’t be all that sophisticated if they don’t yet understand the concept of dental hygiene. I am also sickened when I hear Asian people imitate Negro slang in an endeavor to sound "ghetto."
Am I supposed to be impressed that such a person emulates the attitude of a supposed slum resident? More importantly, whatever happened to being yourself?
The third thing I hate about Asians is how apathetic many of them are in terms of honor these days. If I saw an Asian being stereotyped in a movie theater, I would immediately stand up and shout incessantly at the screen so that none of the white audience members could enjoy the film.
When I saw a white man yelling at an old Asian woman a few months ago, I walked up to him and hollered slurs right back in his Aryan face. But most other Asians, I am disappointed to say, would rather just chuckle at their own stereotypes on screen and ignore the problems of their brethren.
At the risk of sounding corny, whatever happened to the days of the samurai? When honor meant more than life? Whatever happened to the age of Sun Tzu when we used to kick ass?
Don’t get me wrong. I love the Asian race, but every race has its inferiors.
Proof That Whites Inherently Hate Us

White people hate us and will always hate us. Here is a simple list of evidence, going from the most obvious down to the least obvious:
How many American films feature Asian heroes who are not stereotyped?
If someone makes a negative comment about a black person, all of the whites get hopping mad. Make a negative comment about the Asian race and nobody cares.
Most Asians know that everywhere we go, white/black/Hispanic people hurl racist remarks at us. I have already received about 10 racist remarks in the past three months and I have only been out of my home a handful of times.
In 1982, Vincent Chin was killed by two white people, Michael Nitz and Ronald Ebens. Both murderers went free, as the judge claimed that they were not the type of people who deserved to be in prison.
Chai Vang righteously killed six white people after they approached him with guns first. Unlike the “men” who murdered Vincent Chin, brave Mr. Vang was sentenced to life.
Asian civil rights activities receive virtually no media attention. Yet Rosa Parks was pretty much honored as a hero just because she refused to give up her seat. This is curious because Vincent Chin died to defend his race. Why hasn’t he been given an award?
It is quite naïve to think that all of this can be explained by claiming that whites are not “enlightened” or that whites lack awareness of our issues. It is even more immature to think that things will get better if only we continue to protest peacefully through lame marches and letters to the producers of (insert any American TV show here).
Animals, through evolution, are intrinsically developed to detest organisms that are different; the obvious reason being that conformity to a certain level increases the chances of a species’ survival. Since humans are part of the animal kingdom, it should be no surprise that whites have evolved to hate Asians, who have a strikingly different appearance than them.
Furthermore, we do live in an age where “political correctness” and anti-racism are in vogue. Why then, are there virtually no Asian heroes in the media? This is solid proof that we are enemies in the eyes of the Aryans. If even in an epoch where equality is an important matter they still do not treat us as equals, then what hope is there that they will ever treat us equally?
More importantly, why should we care? We vastly outnumber them. When you have a disobedient child, you do not give him gifts to make him abide to your will. You show him the cane.
