@Ultimate Keyboard Warrior you also said “Asians.” You’re using stereotypes, which are generalizations about groups. It doesn’t matter if you said “some” or “all.” It’s still a generalization.

What a total twat-waffle! Leno, you are an embarrassment to comedy. I guess you can only say jokes these days if you are making fun of yourself, or if it's aimed at a white person, right?! it's interesting how I have never once felt like we lived in a "systemically" racist country until recently when every conversation was made about race. Racists typical hyper-focus on skin color. Now who, today, is the party pushing nothing but race politics?... Democrats. It is as if we lack historical precedence pointing to Democrats being racists?! Oh, that's right, they are the party of the Confederate army, the KKK, and Planned Parenthood, just to name a few. Planned Parenthood aborts more babies of color than are born in the U.S. each year. How is this not known by all?... Oh yeah, because most only believe that which they see and hear on a television screen or cellphone. Who knew controlling all of humanity would be so easy!?! We do all the work for them. They simply give us the tools and make suggestions on how to use them. We goose-step our way into servitude time and time again. The slave trade never ended in America. It simply grew to a point that all of us are now slaves, so people stopped noticing their chains and asking questions about who put them there. This is how liberty dies. This is how America dies. Any of you ever hear the saying, "Liberty dies in darkness"? How about, "You don't know what you have until it is gone"?

Chinese people literally eat dogs, and I bet North Koreans do too

@Charles Ascone I don’t mean Chinese as a race, and you don’t have to look that hard on the internet to find that dog eating festivals are an annual event. Just google, Chinese dog eating festival. Not only that, they also believe torturing the dogs releases adrenaline and makes the meat taste better. So yes, we should still pressure, and belittle Chinese culture into not torturing and eating dogs.

Black people tell white people not to be racist, but they discriminate against Asians. Shame on you! Already, nine out of ten Asians living abroad say that black people discriminate the most. Black people, you'll live in discrimination for the rest of your life. If you don't break the habit, Asians will now discriminate against blacks.

I believe racist jokes show the hypocrisy of people, there's no need for comedians to apologize. It reveals everyone's prejudices, but the jokes/comedy are supposed to bring people together and realize we are all humans with the same stupid thoughts. ... everyone has a thought but the ignorant will use it to attack people. It's more deeper because I've seen minorities be racist also. When used in comedy, it weakens its negatives effects when used right. We shouldn't seek for apologies from comedians. I'm mexican and I want my Speedy Gonzales and mexican jokes, damn it!

CCP is not equal China nor the Chinese people. The Chinese people are also victims of the CCP (Chinese Communist Party), if people are going to hate, go hate the CCP, not the people, the CCP lied about covid spreading, that led to this global pandemic. The CCP tries to eliminate all religious groups in China, Tibetans, Mongolians, Uighurs, Falun Gong, Hong Kong, Christians, etc. CCP destroyed all traditional Chinese Cultures and inner values, only showing surface things. Concentration camps, stealing intellectual properties, spies, confucius institute, internet censorship in China, huawei.etc.

He shouldn’t apologize because that’s not what this is about. This is about power and it won’t stop until those who feel powerless take power and then wield it with revenge and perpetuate that power in the same manner they are complaining about. It’s a sick and twisted game the woke are playing.

It's easy for Americans to make fun of what other cultures eat. We have never experienced famine like the old world countries. If u ever experience famine like china europe africa arabia... You'll figure out how to make bird nest soup. The harder and longer and more often in a cultures history famine has occured, the more diverse the culinary appetite. Don't worry if you are paying attention, America has about 13 more years before we completely deplete our soil and poison them to the point of famine the likes which only china has seen. Ur going to be asking your korean neighbors for their bbq dog recipes and ur chinese neighbors how to cook birds nest. I have made a deep study of culinary anthropology. There is a whole encyclopedia worth of foods that fall under my category of "dishes of desperation" recipes that were developed under times of extreme hunger and deprivation.
