Bigotry? December 8, 2006

Rosie O’Donnell does this impression of Chinese.

It actually doesn’t bother me very much.  If a Chinese person did the same I don’t think anyone would say anything, and I don’t recoil in horror at the fact that a white person said it.  What irks me is this double standard where she accuses other people of being homophobic and doesn’t have a problem saying something which can be interpreted as racist much more easily.  If you’re going to offend others, why shouldn’t other people offend you?  If you’re going to say that we should all be sensitive to other people’s feelings, then don’t go cracking jokes about other races.  Ugh.
