The New York Times announced that it was hiring a journalist named Sarah Jeong as a member of their editorial board.
There was only one problem with that, as a quick search in Sarah's twitter account revealed, the woman is a virulent racist and a bigoted person.
Only it's the kind of racism the New York Times apparently supports, because the racism was directed at white people.
Jeong’s Twitter account is replete with racial insults against white people, whom she has described as “groveling goblins,” “bullshit,” “miserable,” and “dogs.”
Here's a quick look at some of her tweets posted in her account @sarahjeong under a psuedo name:
The South Korea-born journalist, who was raised in the US, also used the hashtag "#CancelWhitePeople" and complained about "white people marking up the internet with their opinions like dogs pissing on fire hydrants".
These but a few examples of endless amount of tweets over many years all based around one theme, hatred of white people.
The New York times responded by defending her, and doubling down on hiring her.
While acknowledging her tweets were wrong, It actually tried to paint her as the victim, not the people she was make these disgusting racist slurs at, trying to justify her being a disguting racist because she was a "young woman who was being harrased online", and who was just responding to her "harrassers".
Well, this was how Sarah responded not to "harassers".
For the record the New York Times has a right to hire and fire anyone it pleases, however the New York times have lost its moral right to call out other people for racism, since it decided to support, employ and defend racist people at its own editorial board.
