You think the way to fight racism is more racism?

Applying traits to people based on race is racism. You are a racist, wear your label proudly you've earned it.
Soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo hard.
I'm just sitting back watching you run around in circles and spouting nonsensical gibberish attempting to defend the indefensible.

At least the Jim Crow era racists admitted they were racists. You can't even reach the low bar of integrity set by Jim Crow racists.
Do you have questions about God?

White people trying sooooo hard to claim victim status.

I know those tweets help perpetuate the existing power structure that oppresses white people by normalizing harmful stereotypes about white people that have created practices and institutions that negatively affect the lives of whites.

All people that identify as white really want is to be white, that is keep in place a social structure where they hold economic and cultural dominance and impose their values on those that aren't white by casting all non-white cultural behavior as deviant and a threat to this social structure while being offended at anyone who would suggest they are doing so.
Taken literally, that is factually incorrect.

Your observations, taken literally, are racist by definition, in that you are disparaging a group of people based on their race.

Some white people do that and some don't. The fact that you do not make that distinction is further evidence that your characterization is racist.

Ergo, I am tempted to infer that you were being sarcastic (or something) rather than making a factual statement.
"Being white" is a racist political position trying to frame itself as a race. Simple as that.
Ergo the times chick is a blatent, unapologetic racist.

If you claim it and you are a racist, using it makes you a racist too.

The Times has staked out an untenable position. It is right out of the Nazi playbook. Damn near word for word. Gobbles would have nodded approvingly. And for any thinking person to not condemn that chick is pretty scary. That level of doublethink leads to ovens.

It’s not hate when you’re attacking white people? Part II
I wrote yesterday about “The New York Times” hiring a Korean-American anti-white bigot to their editorial board. Andrew Sullivan now provides the ideological context much better and more succinctly than I ever could in his latest for the “New York” mag (I have a soft spot for Sullivan, who was the first major American blogger to take notice of the original Chrenkoff blog and say some nice things about it, even if we parted ways politically later on):
But the alternative view — that of today’s political left — is that Jeong definitionally cannot be racist, because she’s both a woman and a racial minority. Racism against whites, in this neo-Marxist view, just “isn’t a thing” — just as misandry literally cannot exist at all.
Yea, misandry abounds in her tweets as well...
...
Yes, we all live on campus now. The neo-Marxist analysis of society, in which we are all mere appendages of various groups of oppressors and oppressed, and in which the oppressed definitionally cannot be at fault, is now the governing philosophy of almost all liberal media. That’s how the Washington Post can provide a platform for raw misandry, and the New York Times can hire and defend someone who expresses racial hatred. The great thing about being in the social justice movement is how liberating it can feel to give voice to incendiary, satisfying bigotry — and know that you’re still on the right side of history.
Indeed, the world, at least the Western world, is now a campus.

What Sullivan modestly doesn’t mention in his piece is that he himself has been at the receiving end of Jeong’s attention only two years ago, when she called him a “racist” and a “dipshit” and barracked for him being fired and silenced (he wasn’t).
...
We are truly living in two completely different worlds now: the ever-expanding campus and the real world.

But in other ways it is nothing new – just the same old Marxism, merely warmed up and updated for the new, naive generation.

You guys just don't get it. What she said is not racism, it's "experimentation in new forms of cultural or comedic expression".

The New York Times' problem is that they were too mealy-mouthed in defending her.

Okay folks, if you were to take her "tweets" and (randomly) substitute the word "Black" or "Gay" or what ever,
would that tweet NOW sound racist?

Here, let me show you (from the OP):

1: Dumbass fucking "Black" people marking up the internet with their opinions like dogs pissing on fire hydrants

2; oh man it's kind of sick how much joy I get out of being cruel to old "Gay" men

Hmmm, I feel that aspiring the position:
"A white American telling an Asian American to “go back to where you came from,” for instance, isn’t the same as an Asian American saying the same to a white American,"
Is perhaps not the best way to create a functioning forward-looking society.

I've been around Chinese Americans a lot, particularly when I was in high school (in Chinatown), and I have never encountered this sort of stereotypically "black" hatred of white people. Not once. A bit of arrogance maybe, but not that.

Could it be she's cynically putting it on to get ahead, because the (white) ruling class likes it?

They have to be taught.

Honestly, Asian Americans are "whiter" than white people these days (by most metrics of social upward mobility: education, unemployment rate, average income, etc.). But since they can identify as "people of color" then they can play the oppressed minority.

Yep, see: Harvard sued for alleged discrimination against Asian American applicants
...
The report found that Asian Americans would comprise 43% of admissions if only academic qualifications were considered and 26% when extracurricular activities and personal ratings were considered. Yet at the time the research was conducted, Asian Americans made up 19% of the share of admitted students.

Yes, at schools like Harvard they are, due to affirmative action, but even so they are "overrepresented" at elite universities.

There's an old saying, if you want to stop being called a drunk, then stop acting like a drunk.

If The New York Times (and others) want to stop being called the enemy of the people, then stop acting like the enemy of the people.

Same goes for that blatherskite Jim Acosta of CNN:
