Would they have done that to any other “news personality” of any other race? Highly doubtful. She was bullied and humiliated bec Asian americans can be mistreated by the media and hollywood and any backlash is ignored by the “tolerant” manhattan mainstream media and hollywood types that are all for “diversity”. Talk abt alienating the Asian american audience who’s spending potential is at 718.4 billion w/c is equal to the planet’s 18th largest economy. It’s even more unwise to alienate Asian americans bec according to the LA Times Asian americans shop more than whites and have higher graduation rates than any group and are the majority at professional and managerial roles at 50% compared to all other americans. Yet Asian americans have to be “otherized” by the media and hollywood w/c is a form of discrimination. the mainstream manhattan media complex breathlessly report on gay bullying and suicide while hollywood rallies around gay bullying and yet according to the huffington post Asian american students are bullied the most at more than 51% among all students. Utah’s david phan recently committed suicide bec of bullying and yet I haven’t read reports from mainstream media like cnn and abc and nbc and cbs and msnbc abt it. only the huffington post and local utah media are reporting on it. is it bec the manhattan mainstream media complex does not value the lives of Asian americans? hollywood doesn’t value Asian americans and loves to discriminate against Asian americans thru racist portrayals and lack of representation.

It was disgraceful and racist beyond reason. Lauer is a racist and should be ashamed of himself, but he’s so arrogant that he thinks he’s above it all. He’s a fool. I’ll never watch the Today Show as long as his sorry ass is on the screen. He’s despicable.
