While I can assure you that the comments made on the show were highly offensive, I never even heard about this in the US media. I don't watch Jimmy Kimmel Live, nor do I agree with most of his humor. I live in an area with a relatively high Asian percentage. No such boycott or protest was initiated here.

I wonder why Chinese go to the USA and live and work and to get a education ; when deep down must Americas conjure a dislike for Chinese people .

the US media downplayed this event as if nothing happened.  Contrast this with Paula Deen's offensive n-word comments about blacks which she  made years ago that recently got high profile media attention and condemnation.

EQUALITY IN THE WESTERN MEDIA IS A PRIVILEGE, NOT A RIGHT . . .

In the Western media, equality is a privilege, not a right.  As to the rules to be granted this privilege, it is a Catch-22.  To be granted equality, China must accept unequal treatment.

Go figure that out.

Writer's real name is Lau Guan Kim.  lau_guan_kim is for commentary and analysis. He writes also under another alter ego jinseng. I will respond to good reasoned debate. Mudslingers shall be ignored. What I do not like are ignorance, stupidity, chauvinism and bigotry. The other party has as much right as I have until it resorts to insults and nuisance.
