NYTimes Hires RACIST Writer. 'White People Smell Like DOGS'.
The New York Times editorial board on Monday announced the hiring of Sarah Jeong, a left-wing writer with a long trail of racist tweets.

The New York Times announced Monday it hired left-wing writer Sarah Jeong, who has a long history of racist tweets, to be the lead technology writer for the newspaper’s editorial board. Jeong repeatedly posted racist statements via her Twitter account.
The announcement of Jeong’s hiring comes after The New York Times fired its previous brand new hire for the same technology writer position last February because she “retweeted a racial slur.” Far from merely retweeting a single offensive post, Jeong likened an entire race of people to “goblins,” compared their conversations to animals urinating, and declared that skin color entirely determined whether an individual was awful or not.
In one tweet from 2014, Jeong wrote that white people are “only fit to live underground like groveling goblins.”
“Dumbass fucking white people marking up the internet with their opinions like dogs pissing on fire hydrants,” she wrote in another.
In yet another post, Jeong approvingly posted a chart which indicated one’s value as a human being was based entirely on the color of one’s skin.
“Theoretically you can’t be racist against white people,” she wrote in a separate post before claiming that white people smell like dogs.
Contrary to Jeong’s assertion, the dictionary publisher Merriam-Webster defines racism as “a belief that race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race.”
The New York Times has not publicly explained why the tweets of Quinn Norton, who was previously tapped as the editorial board’s lead tech writer, were sufficient to bar Norton from employment, while Jeong’s racist tweets are not.
