I agree about the broadcast bit. I watched it live, and it could be either way. No way to be sure. The headline on the other hand, no way that is accidental. I totally envision 2-3 white and black buffoons up in NYC or CT office thinking "we should use this headline" and the other (whose responsibility is to act as filter) giggling and saying "yeah DO IT!!!" (okay thats projecting a little) That is wrong. 99% of Asians I know in America who understand English and have lived more than a few years here understand and is offended by Chink. Cracker. That's like saying a Masai is not offended by Nigger and therefore it is not offensive. First of all, does a Masai understand English? If you are from China you are not likely to understand or even have heard Chink while in China. Of course. Calling yourself Chinkballa does not mean it's not offensive. I'm sure you've heard of Niggas Wit Attitude (original spelling was Niggers with Attitude). I guess that means most black people are fine with everyone calling them Niggers, especially white people. So feel free to go around calling niggers.
