“I hate the gooks. I will hate them as long as I live.”
– Senator John McCain
Here’s a video of author Irwin Tang discussing his new book Gook: John McCain’s Racism and Why it Matters. The book connects McCain’s repeated racist statements with his repeated warmongering statements.
Tang’s final point is important. Had McCain used “the ‘n’ word” repeatedly to describe someone who had tortured him, he would never be considered as a presidential candidate.
