QUOTE: The problem is that the term "chink" is every bit as racist and hurtful to Asian Americans as "the n-word" is to African Americans -- so much so that some have taken to calling it "the c-word."  "It's definitely a derogatory term," said Ginny Gong, national president of the Organization of Chinese Americans..."...Maybe there is this feeling that Asian Americans will not express some degree of outrage. But we are outraged that there is this comfort level."
