They Call Me Mellow Yellow

By Wyatt Earp | February 10, 2010

Okay, everyone break out your P.C. Dictionary. We have a few changes to make.

Apparently, the word “Yellow” is the new N-Word. Who knew? The delicious soft drink Mello Yello? It’s the beverage of choice for racist white trash. The classic song Mellow Yellow? Oh, it’s a rabidly racist ditty. Personally, I think Donovan should be taken outside and beaten with a switch for being such a bigot.

Lousy racist songwriters. They’re ruining everything!

Asian-American grievance-mongers and “diversity” bureaucrats in Atlanta need to justify their existence and their salaries.

They found the perfect opportunity. Cry “yellow!”:

Asian-American activists offended that MARTA re-named the train line into the heart of Atlanta’s Asian community the “yellow line” will take their objections to the transit agency’s chief on Friday.

“Yellow,” as a term for skin color, carries a generally negative, racist connotation among Asians.

Puh-lease. That’s not racist. This is racist:

During almost every NHL game, some commentator notes that a puck “hit a chink in the boards.” Every time I hear that I immediately think, “Wow, they get all the good seats.” Ba-dump-bump!

“Historically, it has had a derogatory intent,” said John Park, an attorney with the nonprofit Center for Pan Asian Community Services in Doraville, just down the hill from the Marta station. “It physically paints a very unattractive picture. I don’t consider myself ‘yellow.’”

Then why all the anger? I am certainly not “white” – well, maybe in the dead of winter – so does that mean I can fly into a rage when someone doesn’t call me a “beige guy?”

This is much ado about nothing. People need to get a life.

    Maybe we could ban all writing and speech. Verbally we could just use oinks, grunts and squeaks and when we write and/or type just use !, @, #, $, %, ^, & *. That way when Wyatt posts a picture of Jessica Beil the comments would be :

    **$#@ oink oink ^^%$* grunt grunt %^ #@!$ *&^%$

    which are understandable to men everywhere. It would work for us.

    Yellow is not too kind to journalists either. But then again, they deserve to be reviled.

    BTW I resent being called “soft”, “pink” and “squishy”. Not to fond of “bald” either. Although all do seem, alas, to apply.

    Just amazing. I suppose the Red Line in Atlanta probably goes to Braves Stadium.

    “Yellow” isn’t derogatory; gook, slant, slope and zipper head are.

    Where do people get the notion that they are deserving of protection from derogatory comments? Where in the constitution are they granted this protection? Why do we patronize this pandering to extremist political correctness? Everybody has the right to feel offended by a remark if they so choose, but nobody has the right to be protected against ever being offended by any remark, especially when there is no intent to offend present. Anything different is, in my humble opininon, bullshit.

    His own people aren’t correcting him when he is wrong about something

    In truth, “gook” is an abridgement of a Korean word. Hangook (Hahn Gook) means a Korean, Migook (pronounced Me Gook)means an American, Yonggook means a Brit. I’m sure it became a slur during the Korean war but in reality we are all gooks.

    Forgive my quote copy there, I don’t know how that happened. I thought I copied and pasted the following but didn’t look at it until I posted.

    Hmmm…I always thought “yellow” meant one was a coward.

    What word will be next? Any guesses?

    I am so weary of all this PC crap. From now on I guess it’s “hey, you” or “dude”. Geez, enough already!

    That’s it, I’m going on a race binge and suing grocery stores across the country for the following…
    1. White Bread
    2. Saltine Crackers
    3. White Sheet Cakes
    4. Cracker Jacks

    And anything else I can think of!
