Must not refer to men who are Chinese as Chinamen

Two California politicians have called for a host of Fox News Channel's "The Five" program to resign over his use of racially charged language, saying Bob Beckel's use of the term "Chinamen" was offensive.

The pundit is facing criticism for using the word on air last week as well as for suggesting Chinese computer science students come to study in the United States only to pose a security threat.

Beckel responded to the backlash from his comments by saying on a Monday evening episode of “The Five” that he was sorry he had “apparently offended some people,” but that he was not sorry for the remarks he made about China.

“I will continue to warn the American people about how dangerous China is to the U.S. security and to our business community,” Beckel said. “To those who were offended, I am sorry. I do not apologize to the Chinese government or for their habits or for their murders.”

Curious thing is that Bob Beckel is the Liberal counterpoint on the show.

I prefer "chink" or "slope"

I saw this live on TV and knew that he was going to catch all kinds of grief. The irony that I enjoyed is how the very liberal Mr. Beckel is the person who is usually complaining about the racism of conservatives.
