UPDATED: Fox Sports Singles Out Asian Students At USC For Interviews On Football

As we all know, Asians make up 25% of the student body at USC, also a percentage of those are international students. Before the first game at USC, a Fox Sports reporter visited USC to “interview ecstatic football fans” when really he discriminated against the Asian American population at USC. The reporter’s lack of knowledge of “fighting or hwaiting”, the common Korean word of encouragement like, “Go, you can do it!” And misinterprets the student’s word as asked if he was encouraging “fighting” as in “violence”.  This disappoints me.
