The New York Times is under fire (again) for doubling down on Sarah Jeong’s icky racism. She is the ‘oppressed Harvard grad’ and newest editorial hire, known for her anti-white rants and cheeky, evidently ‘totally chill’ racism — exposing the progressive publication’s double standards when it comes to firing new employees over old but outrageous (racially-charged) tweets. Sarah cut her teeth at Vice’s Motherboard and The Verge over the past few years where she has been penning op-eds on tech and culture and maligning white males whenever possible. She even wrote a book called The Internet of Garbage which, according to online reviews, is “92 pages of pretentious technobabble.” Here is a sassy (and rather misandristic) snippet of her twisted polemic. Yuk.
The New York Times’ PR said that Sarah will be joining the editorial board as part of a “fab group of recent additions” to the paper’s op-ed section next month. In countless tweets dating back to 2013, she disses and denigrates white people, comparing them to dogs and saying they are ‘genetically unfit.’ She also correlates ‘whiteness with awfulness’ in a crude handwritten line graph (below) and argues that white people have appropriated basically everything. Sarah said she was merely responding to online trolls who called her derogatory names like ‘lesbo cunt’ and ‘gook.’ She was just ‘counter-trolling’ and ‘engaging in satire’, she said.
Anyway, we hope the NYT keeps her on the editorial desk as a ‘tech writer.’ Her anti-white #cancelwhitepeople tirades are awful but awfully amusing. Sarah’s honky-hatred is also protected by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution (duh) and despite her racist ideology, we think she is a perfect, mutually-reinforcing voice at the paper. As the hipster news outlet VICE put it a while back regarding the culture wars, “it is literally impossible to be racist to a white person.” Sarah obviously subscribes to this fallacy. The hullabaloo also highlights the lunacy and leftist disposition of a rag that is, according to a few politicians, ebbing hard. “It must be so boring to be white.” Hmmm, yeah. Congrats, Sarah and The New York Times!
