In Racial Profiling Discussion, Guest Rod Wheeler Imitates Chinese People By Pulling At His Eyes

Reported by Ellen - November 13, 2007 -

Chalk up police pundit Rod Wheeler as the latest Ann Coulter wannabe. Wheeler, an African American, argued on last night’s Hannity & Colmes that it was perfectly appropriate to describe a suspect as Hispanic (as opposed to black, white, etc.) over the objections of his Hispanic opposing guest, Mayra Nieves, who said that race, not ethnicity, ought to be the descriptor, given that there’s no Hispanic “look.” Wheeler described a Hispanic male’s appearance by contrasting it with an African American “who speaks English” and “not a Chinese male with his eyes like this.” Wheeler pulled at the corners of his eyes as he spoke. With video.

Wheeler, you may recall, recently “joked” during a discussion of the young man tasered at a John Kerry speech, “Anybody listening to John Kerry should have been tasered.”
