College Board apologizes over 'racially insensitive' T-shirt



The College Board apologized for a "culturally and racially insensitive" T-shirt and some comments made at its Advanced Placement World History exam grading event last month.

On the front of the shirt are caricatures of Chinese politicians with the words, "Chinese Communist PARTY!!!" On the back is an image of Mao Zedong and text in what critics of the T-shirt call a "chop suey font."


"It hearkens to this history of racist imagery," said Hannah Kim, an assistant professor of history at the University of Delaware and one of the AP exam readers, in an interview with USA TODAY Network.


Kim was one of more than 1,000 college professors and high school teachers who gathered in Salt Lake City in mid-June for a week-long event to read and grade AP World History exams. It's common to have commemorative T-shirts at these grading events, and often these T-shirts are "innocuous," Kim said.

I don't get it. Is it the font that's offensive? or that it's chinese communism? or is it Mao Zedong image?

Hannah Kim is a Korean American who is apparently unfamiliar with Chinese revolutionary art. Some one should tell her about the famous ballet called Red Detachment of Women dating from the era of the Cultural Revolution.

It's pretty funny that no one seems to really know what is the racist part...

Does the one saying the bad thing need to know its' racist for it to be racist or does it just have to be perceived that way? I'd think the 2 would have to meet somewhere...

The problem is like the old days of witch craft accuse someone of being racist without
understanding what the subject matter is. If you want to paint you opponent in a bad
light call them a racist
Everyone gets the afternoon off for sensitivity training which is a load of crap because
no one cares they get the afternoon off. Its like the born again Christian families that
make their kids take the pledge to the Holy Spirit that they won't have sex before marriage.
Of course the kids take the pledge it pacifies the parents and keeps the child from coming
under scrutiny.
The whole bloody country has gone mad the PC crowd are worse than condo Nazis on
steroids and no one stands up to them. Around the world people snicker behind North America's
back everything is drama tragedies, hero worship, mourning the death of this and that the
list is endless.
Think of what a field day they could have had giving all those out of control radicals sensitivity
training in the middle of the Chinese Cultural Revolution. I would pay to see that

Well, at least it's not Northern Ireland where the racism is openly displayed for the Orangemen's Day festivities:















Several flags and race baiting posters are on this bonfire which was about to be lit up. The folks there just might be able to use a few sensitivity lessons, one would think.

That is not racism. They are the same race. That is just christian tolorance.

Look closer - they openly use the N ___________ word and make a reference to Anna Lo (of Chinese origin) of the Alliance Party (dog eating is a racialist stereotype in those parts). Thus, it's more than religious intolerance - it is also racialist.
