As controversy continues to swirl around new New York Times hire Sarah Jeong and her racist tweets, this was Chris Hayes’ contribution to the discussion:
Apropos of nothing, I think @sarahjeong is a phenomenal writer, who I learn something new from every time I read her.

Sometimes, Chris Hayes, you’re better served by crying into your sweater. This is one of those times.

I learned a lot about her today too.

Never heard of her until today but I am not impressed after reading tweets attributed to her. Assuming that she made these tweets I can't say I am impressed at all.

You musta learned a crap ton about racism then.

Learning from racists & bigots is fun!

So what did she teach you? How to vomit on Republicans, or how to flip them off while screaming obscenities at them?

Apropos of nothing, I think she is an out and out racist and that you're happy to defend her comments because she's an ideological fellow traveler.

We think you’re right, Physics Geek.
Good. I’m glad you’re defending her. I’m eagerly awaiting your next piece of work on how the folks in flyover country are racist bigots.

Oh, he’s already made that argument. Flashback:

So some racists are more equal than others.
She’s a racist. That seems apropos of something.
The lengths you will go to protect one of your own no matter how they have revealed themselves to truly be.
Never ending hypocrisy.
