The media is really eating this story up. It'll probably start to die down soon unless he continues to put up some great numbers, but that's yet to be seen. I hope he continues because I need something to get me back into professional basketball.
So every time the media refers to Jeremy Lin, they have to put a play on words with his last name like "Lin-Sanity". Even Saturday Night Live got into the spirit and pretty much made fun of every race except Lin's, because right now, that's frowned upon. Their point was pretty obvious...don't dare make fun of Lin's ethnicity or you'll get in trouble.
If you're not shaking your head right now in disapproval and by the complete stupidity of the apology by Ben & Jerry's then you are part of the problem. Just because they used a food usually associated with Asian cuisine doesn't make it offensive or racist. I guess I should change my title banner of this blog of a lazy Mexican mouse. I would hate to offend mice. Today I ordered my custom license plate (tag--if you live outside of Indiana) that says "HOSEBEE". It's a play on words...since my name is Jose (HOSE-A...get it?). I can see how that could be offensive. Wait, no I can't..BECAUSE IT'S NOT OFFENSIVE and neither are fortune cookies in ice cream. It actually sounds delicious and I would love to try some of it and I hope it's available to buy soon. Most likely it won't be because this is going to blow up everywhere and Ben & Jerry's has no choice but to pull the product because someone with an opinion says it's racist. I hope these people die...now that's offensive!
