A columnist with AsianWeek in San Francisco was fired after publishing a column entitled "Why I Hate Blacks."

Naturally, the paper has taken the column off its site, but you can read it here.

He had earlier printed columns called "Why I Hate Asians" and "Proof That Whites Inherently Hate Us." This track record led to questions at a news conference yesterday about the paper's editorial policies and why they had published the most recent offending column in the first place.

But the columnist's firing at least will spare us having to read his take on "Why I Hate Transgendered City Managers."
