ESPN's racial slur on Jeremy Lin

 Here is the screen capture of ESPN's "Chink in the Armor" headline to describe Jeremy Lin's performance last night vs. the Hornets. Is that racist?  Hat tip to SB Nation for posting about this on their website.

Below is also a video of the ESPN anchor using "chink in the armor" to talk about Lin on the air.

This isn't the first time that ESPN has used "Chink in the Armor" as you can see here.

Racist much ESPN? Thanks so much for airing them out.

If you listen close he says "Kink" not "Chink".

Sorry, anonymous #2, Walt Frazier clearly says "chink." Pathetic!

Kink in the armor? Let me listen again

No he clearly emphasized "chink" in the armor on the video. Not kink. You must work for ESPN if you trying to deny!

He said "Chink in the armor." If you have watched the entire video, it would also seem as if the anchor was smirking afterwards.

Chink in the armor is a reference to a weakness.

You can also say the nba player was niggardly on his approach to the basketball.

See how many complaints you would receive. A teacher actually said that during his class session and was later fired.

How about crack-a-lackin? or rather what's happening?

If you wrote that in any of the news outlets, see what happens to the writer.

We live in a racist country under the disguise of a United States. So, FUCK ESPN and their racist remarks. Bunch of pussies who like to circle jerk each other while blowing the next guy.

What a surprise. ESPN fancies themselves "King Makers."

Is it any wonder ESPN gets nervous when they discover an intelligent man like Jeremy Lin refuses to be a puppet?

Oops. Now ESPN gotta bust him back down to size so it can be all about ESPN, again.
