    apparently the station called the NTSB where an intern confirmed the names. A former intern at this point, I'm guessing.

    ok - so a lawsuit is now being threatened by the airlines against the airlines.

    Just for discussion - I really was wondering the root of how these names are offensive.

    It's basically because it is accepted that they are racist and offensive. On their own, the offensive part is only how an Asian name looks when put in an English language context.

    Is anyone disparaging Asians in any other way, calling them dumb, fat, slow, etc. by putting their names in this context? No - it's just how their names look similar to words in English.

    I'm not saying it's okay to do this - and sure people do get offended by it - which is reason enough for me not to use names like this - but legally, can the airline win a case?

    If "Joe" means dumb in Russian and "Smith" means idiot - should Joe Smith be offended if his name is ever put together in Russia?

    I dunno if anyone knows this here...

    But the Chinese term for "that one" (as opposed to "this one", specifying items/property) sounds almost exactly like the English word "nigga."

    I agree. But I don't think the airline has a winnable lawsuit.

    Every time I've watched the video I can't help but laugh my arse off. Still can't help but think of Ron Burgundy.

    Exactly. I'm little a kid in middle-school giggling as it comes up on screen then bursting out laughing uncontrollably. HEY! Ron Burgundy will be back later this summer - some high quality cinema there....and my family and I will love it. "60% of the time it works, everytime."
