Call for a network apology and Beckel's resignation
This petition had 438 supporters
The term "Chinaman" is an archaic racial slur dating back to the mid nineteenth century, with a heinous history of dehumanization and violence against Asian Americans (and Chinese Americans in particular). Yet, Fox News co-host Bob Beckel has used this slur on-air not once, but twice, in reference to Chinese and Chinese Americans. Most recently, he referred to Chinese people as "Chinamen" in a July 10, 2014 episode of "The Five".
Fox News' ongoing tolerance of Beckel's anti-Asian racism, and their unapologetic airing of Beckel's repeated use of anti-Asian slurs, is both unprofessional and an insult to Asian American viewers.
Sign this petition to call on Fox News to IMMEDIATELY issue a retraction and an apology to the Asian American community for their airing of Beckel's usage of racist slurs, and to call upon the network to terminate Beckel's position as Fox News co-host.
