If only they would just open their eyes!
Say, that does not make me a racist does it? I sure would hate to ever be called that.
You all know how sensitive I can be.
There's no known evidence that the driver's Asian. According to demographics, the he's probably white.
"Typical Asian driver. If only they would just open their eyes!"
A typical racist comment by the racist troll Whodey.
"Astros' win in World Series Game 3 overshadowed by Gurriel's racist gesture"
"Television pictures caught Gurriel making what appeared to be a “slant eye” gesture in the dug-out."
(Reportedly, he also mouthed a racist slur in Spanish.)
Some Americans attempted to excuse it by claiming that Yuli Gurriel's from Cuba, where
there's supposedly no Asian population, so he would be unaware of offending any Asians.
In fact, Cuba has a significant Chinese community (114,000+ people), particularly in Havana.
"On Saturday MLB said Gurriel would be suspended for five games for his actions,
but would not serve his ban until the start of next season."
The Houston Astros stated that they would donate money (from the amount that will not
be paid to Gurriel during his suspension) to a local organization promoting 'diversity'.
I hope that organization includes or reaches out to a significant number of Asians.
(It would be most appropriate if it's an Asian American civil rights organization.)
I submit that it would be pointless if all the money went to a black or Latino civil rights
organization that has practically no presence in the diverse Asian communities.
Gurriel's racist gesture showed his insensitivity (at best) toward Asians, not Latinos like himself.
