    And wikipedia is accurate about what exactly??? No CPR... Ching Chong is no where near the level or even the same league as nigger. You may be able to pass of chink as a similar epithet but Ching Chong? hell no. Its like equating a Texan accent to the word cracker.


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

    Yeah, but she didn't call them "ching chongs", she used the phrase to poorly and stereotypically imitate an Asian language.

    EDIT: @CPR

    She used it as a language insult which would be equivalent if she started talking with let`s say african related sounds to a black person.

    I think someone other than Steal and CPR should argue their points becasue depending on your race you are going to take certian things seriously and others not a seriously.

    Look in all honesty its not something that can be used. But it is not comprable to the history and demeaning power of the word nigger, comparing the two is insulting to begin with. If some Chinese want their own word to hate and deplore fine, i dont care, but keep this in mind - Anyone can make ANYTHING inappropriate. If i suddenly got all pissed because someone called me african american no one could prove me wrong if i said i found it obscenely insulting. You want your racial slur you have Chink. Say that to anyone and they will immediately view you as a racist bigot, and they would be right to do so. Same applies to nigger. But anyone who has ever poked fun at the chinese language has said ching chong, hell even chinese people themselves have poked fun at non chinese speakers by saying ching chong ching chong. So now that someone famous says it, now its an uproar claiming its some horrible derogatory term. I dont buy it. Rosie fucked up, she made an insulting joke, thats the end of it. Dont take it to the house like she evicerated youre entire nationality in some horrible racist tirade. And DON'T compare it to something that is leaps and bounds worse than that could ever hope to become.

    what MGS and SD said was right, unless you're the race it was directed to, you cant really say much, but then like SD said, anything can be made inappropriate.
    this actually reminds me of that guy michael richards who played kramer in the Seinfeld), yeah he said something bad, but i just thought that since the guy kept interrupting his act and the fact that he was a comedian, people should have been a little different, but thats just my opinion.

    I'm Asian and I agree ching chong ching chong is crass and not funny at all, I don't mind being made fun of if it's at least funny, but it's not as bad a nigger.

    Watched what she said. Still fail to see what is funny about somone saying "I'm a mentally challanged idiot, and am trying to make a joke." Can't we just let idiots be (until they take presidential positions. Than we need to shoot them.)?

    If you're going with history.. I could argue that my Chinese fellows were fucked up like your race's brothers.

    Like.. my Chinese fellows who got royally screwed into building that damn railroad. They worked the dangerous of areas because they were friggin expendable. They got paid less than the white workers, were not credited in the dedication of the railroad, oh, and weren't even allowed to ride the thing they built. =.; We were both thought of as the same: worthless humans whose only purpose in America was at getting work done for the superior-whites.
    So, if we were both thought of the same, don't get all insulted.

    *sighs*

    The bottom line was it's "taboo." So don't say it. And if you do, and you do insult somebody, don't do what Rosie did and take 2+ months to apologize. =_;;

    And you've gone and missed the point entirely...
    What he was trying to say was that they aren't on the same level.
