Making fun of Asians is not fun

I’ve been watching standing comedies these days, but I stopped watching it recently. I found a serious irony from those standing comedies; they make fun of Asian people a lot, and they feel no guilty, while they very carefully or never make joke about African-Americans or black people. People are very aware of racism on black people, but not really concerned about racism on Asian people. Recently, United Airline dragged their passenger because of their mistake in ticketing. They claim themselves that they chose the passengers randomly, but all 4 passengers who had to forgive their sit were Asians. Moreover, the CEO is not even apologizing for their mistake and disrespectful behavior of his employee, but rather stands for them that it was reasonable. Racism, no matter of the target race, should be eliminated from humanity.
