As an asian who grew up in a working class community and later moved to a upper income community i will say it makes all the difference. If it is was another minority or 1st/2nd generation immigrant white person (like Italian, polish, greek etc) i don't care that much cuz i bust balls with these cats a lot. For some reason if it was an old money white person i would want them fired ASAP.
    Dudes name is Anthony Frederico. Italian or Hispanic are good guesses...but I could be wrong, obviously.
    ESPN anchor, Michael Kim tweeted in his defense implying there was "no malice there."

    Half Japanese, half white Ozi. Jazzy: ****ing cool.

    He's already been noted by the quacks as a whopper. Big hands, thick neck, long arms and long legs. I'm pretty big myself at 6'2 + 3/4", his Mama's huge for a chink, I mean Jap, at 5'10".

    Next Landry Fields was made in my balls.
    Half asian half caucasian kids are so cute. My bro is half Chinese half white. Adorable!

    The headline was pretty bad because headlines usually try to pun...Should the guy have been fired...ESPN did what they have to do, but it's unfortunate one mistake can end a career.

    I'm not as certain that Bretos should be getting grief for what he said...He used it in completely reasonable sense, the phrase is very common for sports analysis, and it's not even the first time he has used it.

    Just take a look at this video:

    The bottom line is this that video above isn't offensive...So i think the headline was bad, but the guy not so much. Also, there is video out there of somebody using the exact same phrase to describe lin before the mistake...

    Here's a conspiracy theory: ESPN making a big deal out of this buys them another angle to talk about LIN on their radio/TV shows now that he is getting old.
