Just in case you didn’t know what a Chinese male looks like

by Carmen Van Kerckhove

Wondering what’s going on in that photo? Well, that’s the scientific description of a Chinese male, according to this Hannity & Colmes guest. From Angry Asian Man:

Former homicide detective Wheeler, in defense of the police, says the the investigators had indeed narrowed down the suspect to a Hispanic male. “Not a Black male, not a Chinese male—with his eyes like this—but a Hispanic male.” Yes, he pulled back his eyes. (At about 1:41 on the video clip.) The international symbol for “chink,” as we all know. An old police trick he learned on the playground, no doubt. Ah, Fox News. Teaching America racist gestures, one viewer at a time.
