Irony in the paper

Ethan Montemayor | Wednesday, September 28, 2011

In flipping through yesterday’s paper, I happened to discover that the question poll of the day was rather selective. The question, “What is your favorite Pokemon and why?” was asked mostly to people of a certain ethnicity: Asian. As a multiracial individual, I find it somewhat amusing, but I feel that some folks do not. So keep that in mind next time, Observer staff — especially if you’re going to run a viewpoint titled Asiatic Gaze in the same paper.
