Apparently, racial epithets are okay for TIME editors to use:
I know it’s been even more fashionable since the Iraq War to have a weird hate on for France, but it is really necessary now for editors at large newsmagazines to use ethnic slurs?
Do you think it would be okay if I wrote an article about how the “Chinks” own a lot of US debt, or how the “Micks” have created a successful economy? Don’t fucking think so. I wonder how Mr. Saporito would like it if I called him a fucking wop, or a greasy dago. I’m guessing not much.
