Atlanta Subway Headed Straight For All These Asians Is Called The 'Yellow Line'
Atlanta's public transportation system "MARTA" is in so much trouble today for being racist against Asians. See, the MARTA people, the Martians, renamed the train line that goes where all the Asian people live the "yellow line." And "yellow," everyone knows, is the worst Coldplay song ever invented. Everyone just hates it, including Asians.
So why are the Martians being so racist? Is it that they still like Coldplay, is that it?
MARTA officials were warned by an employee before the name change last October that Atlanta’s burgeoning Asian community would find the term for the line to Doraville offensive.
“Historically, it has had a derogatory intent,” said John Park, an attorney with the nonprofit Center for Pan Asian Community Services in Doraville, just down the hill from the Marta station. “It physically paints a very unattractive picture. I don’t consider myself ‘yellow.’”
Park and other Asian activists plan to meet Friday with MARTA CEO Beverly Scott. They hope MARTA will change the line’s name from yellow to gold.
Racism is cured forever, the gold subway line is our first black president, etc.
