I heard again this morning on “Morning Joe” on MSNBC. Some guy thinking he was clever using the term “chink in the armor.”
People have faults. There are errors, omissions, glitches. There’s even insurance for that. But “chinks”?
That’s an epithet and you shouldn’t have a cliché to hide behind to enable you to be a naughty racist.
If you really have a suit of armor in your closet and your upset about a minor blemish that prevents you from wearing it to the annual jousting gala dinner, then take the medieval cliché and keep it in the Dark Ages.
But Ho Lee Fuk would not approve.
