"he's chinese... he's got squinty eyes and yellow skin."

Saw this one on Gawker... Oh, Australia. You've been giving us some of the best stuff lately. On a recent newscast, they were reporting on a Chinese lottery winner who showed up to collect his prize disguised as Spider-Man. That's funny, but the real story is where the anchorman takes it with his casually racist commentary:
I don't know why he bothered. I mean, I can tell you now, he's Chinese. He's got straight black hair. He's got squinty eyes and yellow skin.
Gawker's got the video here. The bloke's name is John Mangos, and that's racist! Heck, he almost even pulls his eyes back! The guy has since apologized "unreservedly," blaming the pressure of live TV for his poorly chosen remarks.
