Maryland recruit Stefon Diggs thinks we need to get off Jeremy Lin’s ‘egg roll and dumplings’

Stefon Diggs is one of the most prized recruits Maryland has landed in years. The All-Met Defensive Player of the Year pleased local fans by announcing two weeks ago his plans to play for his hometown school. Now he’s making some noise with a questionable tweet about Jeremy Lin.

Yup, the Terps should be proud to know they have a budding comedian who dabbles in racially offensive areas. How do we know Lin wouldn’t prefer his manly region to be called franks and beans instead?

I’m sure Diggs missed the whole Jason Whitlock affair otherwise he would have gone with the generic “get off his nuts” commentary. No doubt he’ll be hearing from the Terps’ compliance director when he arrives on campus.

    people are getting WAY too sensitive….this is almost as stupid as objecting to the phrase “chink in his armor” which FAR pre-dates any dergatory use of the word…

    It is just lucky Stefon Diggs isn’t a white guy… he would never have a prayerr of playing after this.

    And yes, “Chink in his armor” was far more innocent than the comment by Mr. Diggs. He will get a pass though… just because.

    Well let’s just come out and say it. Because he is African-American, the reaction won’t be as strong in the press that is.  Unfortunately these days minority bigots (which Mr Diggs has now established himself as) are tolerated to a greater extent. In reality though comments like his promotes negative feelings between racial groups and it increases the possibility of negative racial reactions to his own Aftrican American group. Note the “fried chicken” comment by Johnny Lee above, which has long been resented by African Americans. 

    Can’t we all just get along? —Rodney King, May 1, 1992, after the acquittal of Los Angeles police in his beating trial sparked widespread rioting. Yes, can’t we Stephon???

    If a white guy said this the reaction would be tenfold. So no, we cant get along and we should stop trying

    Can someone explain why egg roll and dumplings are offensive? I am a Chinese and I never thought they are. And I don’t really know any Asian/Chinese being offended by this. Please stop being outraged on our behave.

    Stefon Diggs is a damn black racist.  It’s like saying people should get off Diggs watermelon and black eye peas.  Is that racist?  This statement is the same as what Diggs said about Jeremy Lin with egg rolls and dumplings.   Any Asian that plays down digg’s comment is disguising as an Asian or just plain stupid.  Stefon Diggs made a racist remark.  I hope people DON’T forget that!  Just because he’s black he shouldn’t get away with that kind of racist crap.  You think a white person would get away?  This system is flawed and we need to fix it.  Make it a even playing field for all and stop favoring blacks!!!  Slavery was over centuries ago.  The thing that exist now is REVERSE discrimination!
