Remarks about China on CNN spark protests

We read:
"Chinese-Americans rallied outside CNN's Hollywood office on Saturday to demand the firing of commentator Jack Cafferty for calling China's goods "junk" and its leaders a "bunch of goons and thugs."

"We understand free speech," Lake Wang, 39, told the Los Angeles Times. "But what if Cafferty said this about other racial groups? I think he would be fired. I think he's jealous of China."

A crowd estimated by police at 2,000 to 5,000 gathered, chanting "Cafferty, Fire," and singing Chinese songs.


These guys have some right to be annoyed. If Muslims and blacks cannot be criticized, why should criticism of the Chinese be allowed?

I personally think people should be free to call China's leadership a "bunch of goons and thugs." Why? Because they are. But could I say that about blacks? No way! Even though blacks are something like 9 times more likely to commit violent crimes than whites are.
