Editor removed over 'I Hate Blacks' column

Samson Wong (right) has been removed as editor-in-chief of AsianWeek due to the fire storm that erupted over the publication of a column headlined "Why I Hate Blacks," the Chronicle reports. The publication's president, Ted Fang, said Wong will work as a consultant doing outreach for the weekly paper. Kenneth Eng, whose column in February gave reasons why Asians should discriminate against blacks, was dismissed from the 45,000-circulation weekly a few days after the piece ran.
