Come on! Not every gesture is intended to be racist. For decades, round-eyes have made their eyes like Asian eyes out of curiosity–what would they look like with Asian eyes. And since when is natural curiosity being racist? Grow up you racist whiners! Not every little thing equates to racist anything. How many of you light skinned people have gone to a tanning salon to be darker than you naturally would be? Did anyone of you ever worry that someone would walk up to you and claim you were being racist because you wanted to be ever so much darker? THINK BEFORE YOU SPEAK!

For the LOVE of Pete!!!! Is it mocking to identify a physical feature with a culture? If so — then every Asian woman who has had plastic surgery to make their eyes more round and western is then guilty of racism as well. For every black woman who has lightened her skin, straightened her hair, or mocked a white woman’s inability to dance (or sing) — they, too, then are racists. This has gone far enough. Every person on this planet has told a joke that “mocks” another culture, race, religion, or ideology. Enough is enough!!! Let the first person who is without sin cast the first stone!!!!! GEEZ!!!!

What non-Asian person hasn’t pulled their eyes back to pretend they are Asian?

She obviously was having something done with her hair and thought it resembled traditional dark Asian hair and took it a step further to see if she could look just like an Asian. How is that “mocking Asians”?

This is nothing but an attempt to create a story out of pure air.

Seriously? She is joking around with her (ex) husband, this has already been established. What a nation of pathetic cowering pu**ies we have become!!!

Really?!?! Are you freakin kidding me? If it was an Asian pushing her eyes forward to mock the ’round-eyed’ white folks, this would be a non-issue. Why is liberal white America so afraid of minorities?

With all the comments good or bad something is not right with this whole thing with photo and I’m wondering is everyone seeing this..from what I see right now…I can’t see Kate Gosselin being a racist with 8 1/2 Asian children and the pic was taken out of context, but…here’s what I want to know: Who took the pic and uploaded to the media in the first place? Kate says someone took it without her permission; Kate says the pics were from her phone, uploaded to the family computer, then on a disc. What I want to know is who took the disc since I know Kate want let Jon through the gate of her home to retrieve the kids, I’ve seen this on video? Somethings not right here! How would someone go through Kate to get to the pic in question? I truly believe Kate Gosselin uploaded the pic herself; this happened on the eve of Paula Deen being blasted as a racist and getting all the attention…and is drawing the attention from Kate herself, people need to look into this, remember what I see that Kate Gosselin loves the spotlight. someone please explain this to me because this looks too far fetched here. I’m sorry but this is a coincidence here.

Wow – are you an authority on Kate Gosselin’s life?? Do you get your “facts” from her exclusively? Or do you glean your “facts” from media rags?? You don’t know this woman. You know what a tv show wanted you to know through creative editing. You don’t know Jon. You know what a tv show (or media outlet) wants you to know about Jon via THEIR creative news making. No one knows this woman but her friends, family, and children.

Really? People have nothing better to do than this? So what? It happens every single day ALL OVER THE WORLD!! Racism is a fact of life. People need to just get over it. As long as people are different there will be racism.

Now when you make fun of someone or their race that makes you racist? Christopher Rogers, your an idiot for writing this story the way you did. I guess that makes me racist against you now.

The only reason this even matters is because of social media and and blog sites who have to troll the internet and social media outlets like twitter and FB for garbage like this to make a non issue and issue. Then write pithy lame titles to work up weak minded people who are easily manipulated into a frenzy to drive traffic to get ad revenue. To just vomit the same lame crap out over and over again to the same low IQ people the next day since they forgot what they read the day before.

YOU ARE 100% RIGHT! I HAVE LATINO IN ME — DO YOU THINK I DON’T USE THE WORD BEANER WHEN IT’S WARRANTED? YES, I DO! AND I SAY A FEW OTHER WORDS WHEN WARRANTED. WHO CARES? EVERYONE DOES STUFF AND SAYS STUFF AGAINST EACH OTHER. IF THEY DENY IT THEN THEY ARE FLAT OUT LYING!

Typical ” democrat” CIA/Commies is what most of Hollywood is proven by their sordid history thoroughly documented for decades. Read the book ” American Betrayal” first, then read ” Disinformation” second to see the facts of what I say. Just notice their violent reactions to a simple word just like Commie Muslims do…. They never learned the ” sticks and stones” of life. Commies are the ” word police” outlawing the most basic words like ” poverty” from our Commie teachers in Chicago and Common Core teaching. Yes our kids fear their teachers/principals/admins raping and abusing them allot more than guns. Hollywood is a direct arm of Russian Commies just like Bilderberg and especially EuropeOn bums just pushing propaganda and lying out their rears. Yes all Antisemites are pure Commies/EuropeOns as the Jews are one of the biggest false flags of history as the facts clearly show.

And really. The ‘Asian’ segment of American society were supposed to be the toughest-minded of all the ‘minorities’. Now even they want their piece of the race-warfare pie? Tell you what. I’m now offended that anyone refers to a Saltine as a cracker. I mean, it’s white isn’t it? So what are you tryin’ to say? I’m salty and I break easy under pressure? Hell no! You call it a Saltine from now on or you’re RACIST.
