Journalists Defend NYT Hire With History Of Anti-White Tweets
Sarah Jeong, a recent hire at the New York Times, has been outed for having a history of tweets that display hatred and general dislike of white people.
She previously tweeted, “Oh man, it’s kind of sick how much joy I get from being cruel to old white men.” (RELATED: NYTimes’ Newest Hire Sent Anti-White Racist Tweets)

Now, a number of left-leaning journalists are coming out of the woodwork to defend Jeong and the Times for keeping her.
most of the people attacking sarah jeong are the same ones sending all of us who are nonwhite on twitter the threatening messages that we have to report.

The people who are very concerned about Sarah Jeong being “racist” seem to be quite comfortable with actual racism unless it’s “racism” against white people which is not racism and you could blow me over with a feather, I do declare.

Sarah Jeong is good, her haters are bad (terrible, even). It’s not difficult.

I’m going to be clearer about this: @sarahjeong is one of the most insightful people we have on this entire internet. There is no way anyone will take her down with this laughable junk but they should all feel ashamed of themselves for trying.

anti-black sentiment and anti-white sentiment are not morally equivalent because the country wasn’t founded 45 minutes ago and our long and complex history has generated systemic oppression of nonwhite people to the exclusive advantage of white people. Also Sarah Jeong is good.

Sarah Jeong will outwrite, outthink, and outlast all you motherfuckers but good luck being fragile racist misogynists
