AsianWeek Statement and Apology

Posted by AC Team on Saturday, 03 March 2007

AsianWeek's Statement and Apology issued by AsianWeek's Editor-in-Chief Samson Wong.


AsianWeek sincerely regrets and apologizes for publishing New York-based contributor Kenneth Engs column in the issue of February 23, 2007. AsianWeek rejects Engs biased views on a critical segment of American society, African Americans.

While AsianWeek continues to truly believe in diversity of opinion and freedom of the press, we are also very aware that the promotion of hate speech is not appropriate, nor should it be encouraged.

Given that the genesis of the American civil rights movement was borne primarily by the African American community through blood and perseverance, the failing of our editorial process in allowing this opinion piece to go forward, was an insensitive and callous mistake that should never have been made by our publication.

Hi Judy,

Thanks for the e-mail! You already know how I feel about what's happening
with the Chinatown project. The developer was plainly, and blatantly out of
line, so I couldn't keep my mouth shut after reading the articles about what
happened culminating in Scott's article. I really don't think our city
leaders really care about preserving the Chinatown location.

I'm very angry with the Press-Enterprise. They changed some of the words in
the letter I originally sent to them. In the original I referred to George
Wong as "Mr. Wong" to show him the proper respect. The newspaper changed it
