Rosie’s statements were racist

Jenn critically analyzes Rosie O’Donnell’s “ching chong” statements as well as taking a look at the myriad of racist responses from the media/blogosphere. O’Donnell’s statements on the view seem to have been overtly overlooked by most mainstream news outlets. It appears to be a trend that media coverage of racism against Asian Americans, Latinos, and Native Americans is swept aside to make way for the more stereotypical and polarized “white vs. Black.”
