"Chink in the armor" does not offend Buzz Bissinger

The perpetually disgruntled Buzz Bissinger went on Reliable Sources on CNN this morning talking about Jeremy Lin, namely the "Chink in the Armor" headline that was seen on ESPN's mobile page that resulted in some guy getting fired. And he personally was not offended all that much because as he says, there are things much more offense that could have been said. He does elaborate saying that "gook" and "kike" were more offense. Interesting take on things, to say the least. Let's go to the videotape.

Indeed. The folks over at Deadspin put it pretty well:
Buzzinger doesn't have a problem with things that are offensive, even though he acknowledges they're offensive but that people who find them offensive should "lighten up and get a life"? That's okay, I have a black friend.
