    I'm Asian American and I thought the bit was hilarious and on point and I don't feel like some kind of race traitor at all for feeling that, if that's how I should feel according to some (not that I think that's what you're saying, just to be clear). No one's being silenced, seems to me everyone is just giving their opinions and not agreeing, which is what I expect.

      And I'm glad you don't think that's what I was saying, because I would hate to have given the impression that I was.

      But I don't hear you saying "I didn't find it upsetting, therefore it doesn't matter if anybody else does," which I am hearing from other commenters here, and that is the position I'm opposed to.
