The New York Times sparked a social media firestorm after it released a statement saying it stands by its decision to hire Sarah Jeong as a new member of its editorial board, despite the fact that Jeong admitted to making several controversial tweets about white people.

To many conservatives, Jeong’s tweets were undeniable evidence of her racism against white people. But many on the left are arguing that only white people can be racist, which makes Jeong exempt from scrutiny.
“They were seriously trying to make the case that racism isn’t racism as long as it’s coming from the minority directed at the majority. That’s insanity! Racism does not come from one race,” said Glenn on Friday’s show. “Racism is a human problem. This is one of the most idiotic things I have ever heard, and I am not going over the cliff with the rest of humanity.”
