It is widely known that NPR is a sleazy racist rag sadly supported by our tax dollars. But rarely do they come out from under their crisp white hoods and expose their racism for all to see. They did it on Tuesday.
An Asian woman, Democrat Michelle Wu, was elected mayor of Boston. No surprise, a Democrat in Boston. But that’s not good enough for NPR. The mayor has to be of a certain race or the modern Kluxers there get bent out of shape. Wu is a grad of Harvard and Harvard Law. Not our cup of tea, but to some impressive. Still not good enough for NPR. And gawd forbid, not an Asian as mayor for the racists at NPR.
Why? Because to NPR and the Left Asians are guilty of unpardonable sins. They revere the family and they work hard to succeed. Not exactly traits the Left is fond of.
FNC: “NPR took heat Tuesday after its report that Asian American Michelle Wu’s, D., election win in Boston was considered a “disappointment” to some for being chosen over Black candidates.
‘Michelle Wu, an Asian American, is the first woman and first person of color elected to lead the city. While many are hailing it as a turning point, others see it as more of a disappointment that the three Black candidates couldn’t even come close,’ NPR tweeted. It deleted the tweet after online criticism, although the thrust of the story remained the same…The linked article headline reads, ‘Cheers and some letdown as 1st elected woman and person of color becomes Boston Mayor.’ ”
We realize we don't always get things right the first time, and our previous tweet/headline misrepresented the story.
We deleted the previous tweet, which was causing harm, and have updated the story

The article bemoans Wu’s win, one interviewee admitting she “cried [their] eyes out” over an Asian being elected mayor over a black. “There’s merit to the voices in this story of course, but this framing is absolute trash. Why must we pit POCs against each other in storytelling? Why can’t we celebrate a woman of color who has just reached a massive milestone in her career?” one journalist commented. “Interesting which firsts are hailed as indicative of social transformation and which are caveated and contextualized into oblivion,” MSNBC contributor Noah Rothman tweeted. For once, well said MSNBC.
