Being "White Trash" is most often used by Whites referring to other Whites, so I guess I'm missing the racial aspects of this story.

Chu's ethnicity doesn't apply here. This is an issue of a woman who apparently has preached inclusion and acceptance of different social classes, who has demonstrated the complete opposite behavior on an internet site. What race she is, or the race of the individuals she demeaned in her reviews, isn't the issue.

“Side note: employees are Chinese, not Japanese,” added Chu, who identifies in one review as Chinese American. In another restaurant review she said, “I guess if you were a white person who has no clue what mochi is, this would be fine for you.”

Pot: meet Kettle!

A dayglo white skin "Asian" calling other white people "white trash". LMAO!

Ms Chu: you need to have your people of color card yanked since you're lighter skin than many anglo white people.
She's actually a little tan by East Asian standards. I consider myself brown, and I have her coloring almost exactly.

But, still, tacky af on her part.

Replace the word "white" with "ghetto" and she'd be filing for unemployment by now.

Yes, more than likely. Probably best if one feels the need to go off on a tirade, would be to remove any references than can be perceived as racial.

If she would have removed other language like "morons" and such, and just given negative reviews without the personal attacks, this would've been a non-issue. She isn't Jane Doe writing these reviews, and should know because of her position she's going to be held to a higher standard.

Another anti-white liberal.....no surprise. If a Leftist was tolerant of anyone but her own tribe, that would be a surprise. Of course, if this Dean had made such a remark about transsexuals, gays, illegals, or blacks it would have been a very different outcome for this Dean's job. Protests, twitter assassination, threats of violence and likely Bye, Bye Dean's job. But, she will suffer a minor slap on her bigoted and prejudiced wrist for denigrating white people.

Do you mean it's ok for her to have these opinions, just that they remain secret?

You're the one who reflexively leapt from A to B. Don't try to project your own prejudices onto someone else. Own them.
