Lady Chinky Eyes On Colbert Report

By now, you’ve probably heard about last week’s incident where a New York Papa John’s employee identified a Korean American customer as “lady chinky eyes” on her receipt.

Not only has this received attention on assorted Gawker Media and Asian American blogs, but it’s risen to national prominence by appearing on the Colbert Report last night:

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Yes Colbert! Hopefully this will help reinforce the message that this recent trend (also see Chik-fil-A’s “ching” & “chong” receipts…plus Chik-fil-A gets extra bogus points because they’ve donated millions to anti-gay groups) is all sorts of fucked up. And if you’re one of those people that thinks we live in a post-racial, colorblind Kumbaya society, you need look no further than your local fast food joint for evidence that this shit permeates.

Thanks Char!
