I don’t know which 1970s quiz show this clip is from, but it’s funny in a “kids say the most racist things” sort of way. The question posed by the host is:
When we refer to someone as “yellow,” we consider them to be what?
Uh oh. Tough question. As anyone’s racist grandfather can tell you, the correct answer is “one a them schemin’ Japs,” although “gook” may also be acceptable depending on which war helped make Grandpa the way he is. Unfortunately for the little girl, the question was NOT posed by a panel of Korean War veterans, so her racially insensitive response was deemed incorrect, and the boy sitting next to her got the chance to answer the question. The Asian boy sitting next to her. Awkward!
