The New York Times has decided to quit pretending to be unbiased by hiring openly racist Sarah Jeong. She has a long history of being racist against whites, just like the NYT. So maybe it’s a perfect fit. Or maybe they just decided if the paper is going down the tubes, they should hasten its death.
NYT announced on Wednesday that they hired Sarah Jeong to join their editorial board. Jeong previously wrote for the Verge and authored “The Internet of Garbage,” a book about online harassment and free speech.
Shortly after Jeong’s hire, Twitter users unearthed old tweets in which she expressed an extreme distaste for white people.
“Dumbass fucking white people marking up the internet with their opinions like dogs pissing on fire hydrants,” she tweeted in 2016.
Another tweet reads, “oh man it’s kind of sick how much joy I get from being cruel to old white men.”
The New York Times has yet to comment on Jeong’s racist past, however some Twitter users pointed out that they previously fired Quinn Norton after learning that she had tweeted derogatory terms about black and gay people. Norton also allegedly had connections to white supremacists.
“Meet the newest member of the New York Times editorial board. I’d say that these tweets were part of her resumè when she applied for the job.”
