CHICAGO (AP) — Steve Harvey has apologized for "offending anyone" with jokes targeting Asian men during his syndicated television chat show earlier this month.
Harvey mocked a 2002 book titled, "How to Date a White Woman: A Practical Guide for Asian Men" during an episode aired on Jan. 6. He joked that neither white nor black women had any interest in Asian men.
In a message posted on Twitter on Tuesday , Harvey offered his "humblest apology for offending anyone, particularly those in the Asian community." He says the jokes were meant to be humorous and no "malice or disrespect" was intended.
This Mockery touched a nerve within the so called Chinese community who are very prideful. Lead by Asian-American author and restaurateur Eddie Huang. He let off an emotional tirade about " Before ever reading about the history of discrimination against Asian-Americans — from the “yellow peril” to the Chinese Exclusion Act to the Japanese-American internment camps to the model minority myth to Vincent Chin and Pvt. Danny Chen – every Asian-American man knows what the dominant culture has to say about us. We count good, we bow well, we are technologically proficient, we’re naturally subordinate, our male anatomy is the size of a thumb drive and we could never in a thousand millenniums be a threat to steal your girl." all this prompted by a Joke But The Irony, Here's a commercial from a Chinese laundry detergent company.
Now not by any means could the Black nor Hispanic Natives rally behind Mr. Harvey he has been the source of the top coon awards for quite some time. His latest being ridiculed from the meeting with Donald Trump.
It seems now the joke is on him with all the backlash for mocking so called Asian men where was all the backlash when they mocked his very own nation continually. Somethings are so obvious for others to see and one thing is clear Mr. Harvey is about that paycheck and Moab; Well they fired back at him quickly.
There is one shining light we can take from all of this and a bit of news for some but for others very bad. Deuteronomy 23:2. An Ammonite or Moabite shall not enter into the congregation of the LORD; even to their tenth generation shall they not enter into the congregation of the LORD for ever: Their nation in the 90's was the source of a lot of murders in convenience stores around the United States because of pride of ownership in the so called white man's system they killed alot of children Teenagers. Isaiah 16:6. We have heard of the pride of Moab; he is very proud: even of his haughtiness, and his pride, and his wrath: but his lies shall not be so. Below is an ancient Moabite sarcophagus (note: the eyes )
Therefore the Judgement of the Lord God of Israel is upon their nation. taking vengeance in the form of storms and earthquakes. Jeremiah 48:16. The calamity of Moab is near to come, and his affliction hasteth fast. Ezekiel 25:11. And I will execute judgments upon Moab; and they shall know that I am the LORD.
