Check out this video showing comedian Jackie Mason using an offensive racial slur on ESPN.
The racial slur happens around the five minute mark of this video. The ESPN commentator Joe Tessitore and Mason have a great laugh at the expense of Chinese people.
Here is the transcript of these two bantering -
Joe Tessitore: Teddy Atlas goes to China and I end up with you, Jackie!
Jackie Mason: You don't know how lucky you are. What's he going to do in
China? All he's going to see is Chinese people. You can see them in the
neighborhood. (Tessitore Laughing real hard) Everytime you go to the
laundry, there's another "Chinaman". You don't have to go a hundred
thousand miles to meet a Chinese person.
There are NO excuses for racism and especially on a network like ESPN. Tessitore should be ashamed of himself for laughing so hard as well. Mason, who calls himself "The Ultimate Jew" should never be allowed on ESPN ever again.
I am surprised he didn't say the "N" word when discussing those two black fighters that were boxing. It is 2008 and racism is at an all time high on the airwaves and in the media.
A radio sports host in San Francisco also used the "chinaman" slur on the air recently. You can find more about that here - http://dwizzlesworld.blogspot.com/2008/08/racism-by-media-on-china-and-chinese.html
ESPN and KNBR should be ashamed of themselves for allowing people like Mason and Tolbert on the air.
