Why did Shaq's "ching-chong-yang-wah-ah-soh" comment to Yao Ming go unnoticed?

    This is what Shaq said to him when Yao Ming was coming to the NBA.

    All the American media outlets laughed and thought it was humorous. They were playing it on all the sports shows and sports radio shows and laughed, then they made comments like "Shaq is hilarious, you gotta love him."

    Shaq was forced to apologize by the league (Obviously, somebody must have wrote a letter or filed a complaint).

    Then all the American sports journalist said it was just a joke and it was funny and shouldn't be taken seriously. Even Steve Carr, the commentator on TNT and former Chicago Bulls/San Antonio Player said that he didn't find it offensive and Shaq shouldn't have even apologized.

    I'm not saying Shaq is racist and I'm sure he didn't mean harm in anyway, but that shows the ignorance in American culture towards Asians. It's not a racial slur per say, but it can be offensive to Asians.

    What do you guys think?

    obviously u dont watch basketball

    at the time it happened it was a big deal.. but everyone pretty much knows shaq is a genuinly nice dude.. and a few weeks after the comments he apologized personally and publically whether he was forced or not.. its not that serious

    i could see if he called him a •••• or fortune cookie..

    and went more like

    "what do u think about yoa ming coming into the league"

    "i better brush up on my ching chong blah blah blah(sarcasm and smile)"

    For your info, I do watch basketball and when I say "unnoticed" I don't mean nobody said anything. I even said they played the clip on all the sports shows and sports radio shows, what I mean by "unnoticed" is the acknowledgement by American journalist that statement can be offending to Asian.

    You don't have to call him a racial slur like "ch1nk" or a Asian product to come off as being offensive.

    Now if Yao Ming was asked what he thought about Shaq, and if he said "I guess I better brush up on my....G dog on a fly tip - crackin lackin what it do shawty."

    You won't find that "ching chong" stuff unoffensive because your black. If someone said that to you it wouldn't have no negative connotation that's why you didn't find it offensive. That "ching chong" statement has no effect on you.

    Oh yeah, mispelling a name shows that someone doesn't watch basketball.

    Did I mispell Michael Jordan?

    yeah, people never care about shit like that....i think it comes from the increasing realization that China is about 15 years away from pwning us.

    man, shut the fuck up

    I knew how his name is pronounced, but I just didn't know how to spell it. When did i say i knew how to spell his last name?

    that doesn't prove i don't watch basketball, you dumb fuck, alyrics dumb fat daffy duck lookin ass up

    i hate dumb motherfuckers like affliction and alyrics, that come in the thread and their own argument is i didn't spell someone's name right

    get your stupid ass out of my thread MC Grammar

    stupid fuckin idiots have nothing better to say besides correcting spelling.

    couch potatos like you probably never played basketball, you probably get picked last at the YMCA kickball games.
