Racist Mike Francesa wants all you non-black Asians to know he won't refer to you as Orientals anymore

Mike Francesa, who used the racially insensitive term 'Oriental' over and over again yesterday was, finally, stopped by his producer. Told that Oriental is an, oh boy, slight (his words) - Francesa acquiesced: "If it has to be Asian American that it has to be Asian American, OK?"

After explaining the 'texture' in which he used the racist term Mike promised Asians everywhere not to refer to them as furniture or rugs. (Comedian Margaret Cho famously said 'White people like to tell Asians how to feel about race because they're too scared to tell black people' and is legislating the removal of the word 'Oriental' from public documents.)

The LA Times reported President Obama signed a bill prohibiting use of the term in all future federal documents. Rep. Grace Meng, the New York congresswoman who sponsored the legislation, exulted that “at long last this insulting and outdated term will be gone for good.”

Homophobia hasn't gotten him suspended. Lying hasn't gotten him suspended. Anti-Semitism caused by xenophobia didn't get him suspended. Will his St. John's uneducated racist use of the term Oriental?

Tune in today when Mike lights up some incense, smokes some opium and talks Negroes, coloreds, and, of course, midgets and mulattoes. And then fakes a heart attack to avoid getting beat up.
