Philadelphia Newspaper Calls Asians “Chinky Winky” and “Dinky Doo”
Publisher Jimmy Tayoun says it’s a “proofreading error.”
In the August 21st print edition of the Philadelphia Public Record, the free weekly tabloid published by former Philadelphia City Councilman turned federal inmate Jimmy Tayoun Sr., current Philadelphia City Councilman Mark Squilla is pictured at an event in Chinatown with, among others, “Chinky Winky,” “Me Too,” and “Dinky Doo.”
- “It was a proofreading error,” Tayoun told Philadelphia magazine on Friday afternoon. According to Tayoun, the editor who used those names did so because he didn’t have the actual names. When we pointed out to Tayoun that there were actually more names than there were people, he reiterated, “It was a proofreading error.” And when we asked why the editor didn’t use a generic placeholder instead of an ethnic slur, he insisted that there’s no prejudice or bigotry involved here.
"That editor is a Britisher," Tayoun explained, puzzlingly. "He didn’t mean anything by it. The Public Record is the most inclusive publication in Philadelphia.”
"It was a proofreading error." Yes, you just keep repeating that. I guess he means it’s like a spelling or grammar error, but the editor forgot catch all the racist shit before it went to print. Don’t you hate it when that happens?
Feel free to contact Jimmy Tayoun, publisher of the Philadelphia Public Record, with your thoughts:

ROLL BACK THE ATTITUDE
Obviously, pop culture ephemera is often an inefficient (and, in some cases, grossly inappropriate) medium for explaining the intricacies of complex sociopolitical conflicts. But this episode, which was first broadcast on Nov. 11, 1991, resonates deeply in the wake of Ferguson (Jazz was worried about being shot six times; according to an autopsy reports, Michael Brown actually was). The sad fact is that Fresh Prince captured what remains, 23 years later, a disturbing truth for black Americans: They’re constantly in jeopardy for no other reason than “walking while black.”
