Lin Has Lunch With quotchink in the armorquot Editor

5 years ago

Back in February an editor on ESPN`s mobile site made an inadvertently racially insensitive headline "chink in the armor" to describe Jeremy Lin. On Tuesday Lin had lunch with him to show that he had no hard feelings. Lin`s family had actually reached out to Anthony Federico after his apology and dismissal. Federico said "the fact that he took the time to meet with me in his insanely busy schedule ... He`s just a wonderful, humble person. He didn`t have to do that, especially after everything had kind of died down for the most part. "We talked more about matters of faith [and] reconciliation. We talked about our shared Christian values and what we`re both trying do with this situation .. . We didn`t talk about the headline for more than three minutes." For me I would`ve thought it would`ve been the other way around Federico reaching out to Lin and not Lin to Frederico. It is a shame what happened due to his actions, but at the same time not because you really have to be careful of your actions as even if it may not directly offend the person you`re talking about it could anger a whole community of people.

Do you think it should`ve been Frederico reaching out to Lin?
Are you offended by what Frederico said if you are Chinese?
