‘Why I Hate Blacks’ Writer Not Sorry: ‘If I’m A Racist Then So Is Sofia Coppola’

kenneth_eng.jpgKenneth Eng, the writer and former NYU student who set off a firestorm over an article entitled “Why I Hate Blacks” published in Asian Week, told Fox News’ John Gibson that he doesn’t regret anything:

GIBSON: You don’t have any regrets about saying something as overtly racist as you hate somebody because they’re black or because they’re white?

ENG: Evidently Sofia Coppola and Quentin Tarantino have nothing against that and neither does Shaquille O’Neal and Chris Tucker. So I have no regrets at all.

The transcript only gets more insane from there:

GIBSON: Why do you hate blacks?

ENG: Well, you know, just to be blunt, 90 percent of them usually walk up to me and call me, you know, like for instance, ching-chong and stuff like that. I mean, I don’t really give a damn, but you know, I mean, after a while it gets pretty damn annoying. And not to mention they get so much media attention. But you know, I mean aside from that, you probably want to know why I call myself the god of the universe as well.
