The Jeremy Lin phenomenon has reached epic proportions; unfortunately, the story of the great, unlikely young kid has entered a new arena that is chock full of the race card, (it was inevitable being that Lin is an Asian American and now, his mega-celebrity is being tainted by some self-serving racist jerks that want some attention.) Hello ESPN, but wait...
Nick and Artie, a bunch of lowlifes that found a home on KNBR 1050, (syndicated nationally by DirectTV), staged a "contest" asking listeners/morons, really, on the February 15 show to call in and offer the most racist joke about Lin and Asian-Americans they could think of. Ha Ha. How funny. And so damn original too.
"Artie" is a sloppy leftover from the Howard Stern show who found a new home receptive to his unfunny vulgarity and nonsensical, racist idiocy. KNBR is a Cumulus property. They and DirecTV might be getting a call from a few lawyers soon.
Another reason NOT to listen to Knibbers' little sister of the poor.
