"Hangover" actor Ken Jeong was asked if he could kick Kim Jong-il's ass in a street fight -- so, is the question racist? And it has nothing to do with them both being Korean. Okay, maybe a little.

Racist? Lol that reminds me of when he was painted all black on Community. Wasn't he some kind of elf? Idk i just remember he looked really creepy and funny at the same time.

Yes, it's racist. There's a difference between asking if, as an example that was given, Brad Pitt could kick Charlie Sheen's ass and asking if Ken Jeong could beat Kim Jong-Il. That question was asked BECAUSE they're the same race. Ken Jeong also perpetuates Asian stereotypes that aren't counterbalanced ANYWHERE ELSE in Hollywood. Shame on him.
