‘Why I Hate Blacks’ Writer Pitched Story To Village Voice, NYT, Daily News


NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts is thought to be one of the most intellectual schools in the world, but it is also one of the most corrupt.

That’s how “Discrimination Against Asians at NYU,” Kenneth Eng‘s 2004 piece for Down In The Dirt, an “internet literary magazine,” starts.

Eng, who was fired by Asian Week for writing a piece entitled “Why I Hate Blacks,” says he received at least 10 death threats while an undergraduate student at Stonybrook and was threatened and attacked while at NYU for his opinions on race.

In fact, when I defended myself against the black student’s remarks, the whites were outraged and the professor threw me out of class, stating “I cannot imagine any way in which [the student] insulted you”. Gee, she would have practically kissed my scrotum if I were black and I was discriminated against, but since I’m just a yellow-skinned Asian guy, I guess I just don’t have the same right to express opinions as the whites and blacks do. To hell with that.

Eng says he pitched the article to the Village Voice (“The editor shouted at me: ‘That is hyperbole! I don’t believe you.’ He had no logical reasons. He just didn’t want to believe it was true”) and the the New York Times and Daily News.
