Hawk Harrelson Should Probably Not Suggest "Asians" Are "Deceptive"

Chen-Chang Lee is a pitcher for the Indians. He's from Taiwan. During tonight's broadcast of Cleveland's bout in Chicago against the White Sox, horrible broadcaster Ken "Hawk" Harrelson painted Lee with some broad and ambiguously racist strokes.

After a pitch that caught Alexei Ramirez swinging and missing, Hawk declared it to be an example of "typical Asian motion. Deception involved!" You know, compared to North American pitchers, who tell batters which pitch they're going to throw ahead of time.
