    Not racist in the least to be honest. Just a woman portraying a language of which she's ignorant. There was no malicious intent in the clip shown.

    Not even worth talking about, or watching.

    contradictory or what, so if it is not racism what is it? just simply ostracising or "mocking" someone due to the way they speak or look is classed as racism.
    Its taking the piss out of another language. Nothing to do with racism, sorry to dissapoint you. Are you one of these people who sees racism absolutely everywhere, or do you go out of your way to complain that everything is racist.

    I am Scottish and I have had my accent mocked many times, I do not find it racist. No matter if you pc mongos think otherwise

    NO. I am not. But i do not think CHING CHONG comes under the chinese vocab, correct me if i am wrong?
    There for it is an incorrect view and mockery of how chinese people speak. Get it right jesus.
    "Ching chong is an ethnic slur sometimes employed by Americans and other speakers of the English language to mock people of Chinese ancestry"

    I'd consider it racist, yes. It's derogatory, insulting and incredibly ignorant. It's not just insulting the language tbh. It goes far deeper than that and kind of infers that Chinese people are lesser or stupider somehow and that Chinese as a language is incredibly simplistic or incomprehensible. If you're mocking the way a Chinese person speaks English, I don't think that's racist. Just ignorant and a little cruel. But that is widespread and happens to every race. I don't think any other race is insulted through their language though. It's fairly unique which is why there's nothing to compare it against. If you haven't experienced it you can't possibly know how it feels so most people labour under the delusion that it's just a joke and it's not hurtful.

    No its does not come under the Chinese vocab you pedantic moron. It is mocking the chinese language.

    ........... The uber-pedantacism of some TSR users is utterly astonishing.

    Ching Ching is an ethnic slur, but the context in how the Girl in the video used was not an ethnic slur she was cleaerly mocking their language

    She is offensive in a Jim Davidson sort of way. Thick, unfunny and a jaded career in freefall.
