who you calling "chinaman"?

The International Association of Theatrical Stage Employees (IATSE) has accused Ted Kotcheff, an executive producer of Law & Order: SVU, of making racist and sexist remarks, claiming he often refers to Asian Americans as "Chinamen": TV producer accused of racism, sexism. The Hollywood union said it has complained to NBC Universal Television in three instances involving allegations against Kotcheff over the past three years. In the latest allegation, he is accused of referring to a crew member as "Stepin Fetchit," and telling him "get your Caribbean ass out of here -- go back to the Caribbean." I wonder who exactly he's calling "Chinamen" over there, and I wonder what B.D. Wong, who stars on SVU, has to say about Kotcheff... That's racist!
