Ching-Chong-Ling-Long Gourmet Takeout Opens in LA

Categories: Really?!?!?

Alexandra Wallace may have been shamed out of UCLA, but today she lives on in Mongolian beef and kung pao chicken.   

The infamous collegiate, whose YouTube rant "Asians in the Library" had the Internet shaking its head at the state of higher education, is the inspiration behind a new Chinese food delivery service in Westwood, Ching-Chong-Ling-Long Gourmet Takeout. "Ching Chong Ling Long," of course, comes from the bit in Wallace's video where she blasts Asians who talk too loudly on their cell phones in the school library, mimicking their conversations with the cringe-tastic line, "Ohhhhh, Ching Chong Ling Long Ting Tong, Ohhhhhh!"

According to the company's website, the jokey name has an underlying mission: "We believe that the best way to combat intolerance is through a positive cultural experience mixed in with a healthy serving of humor, and hope that after you try us, you too will feel that way." 

While that's great and all--really?? Couldn't we have let the senseless tirade die four months ago? We can hear the stupid drunk prank calls now. Ohhhhhh.

@Darren//Tim, you're an idiot. Businesses pay taxes, pay for permits, and yes,they have write-offs, because the cost of doing business is not free,IDIOT! And FYI, "Ching Chong" to Asians is in no way, shape or formcomparable to "Nigger" to African Americans. You're a moron.//

Darren, I'm going to assume you're not an Asian American as only a non-Asian American cannot truly determine racism as they never felt the bite of both: overt and subtle racism in their life time. And yes, "Ching Chong ling long" is comparable to that of "N" word as that is a term to disenfranchise, degrade and denigrate a race of people. The "N" word is used for the same purpose and being white, you're privy to hatred, because, your ancestors were the progenitors of hate. Don't think so? Columbus was a conqueror, The Spaniards were conquerors, the U.S. conquered Asia and taught them Christianity (another white man's creation), they conquered Hawai'i, and the list goes on.

So to say, there is no comparison shows that your white blinders blinds you to certain aspect while gives you a limited glimpse to a picture that is interconnected to each other. Am I being a nationalist? Nope. I'm an American of Asian ancestry and I am damn proud of who I am. But at the same time, your dribble is counterproductive as it destroys the identity of Asian Americans nationwide. By dividing and conquering, by determining what is racist and what isn't by someone other than Asian and making it part and parcel of the American value, only set back the civil rights movement. I don't know if you couldn't care less, but I do and will continue to post

All the while Darren, if you are an Asian American, or pretending to be an Asian American after this post is up, not only are you a moron, but you are a dumb ass for condoning racism against your own people. So I'm going to assume the former, as NO ONE IS STUPID ENOUGH TO DENIGRATE THEIR OWN RACE...Unless you're stupid enough to do so.

P.S.: Gee Darren, you're not a racist but you posted a racist word for blacks and even in "quotes"? You know what? It's still racism

It's not racist when Asians say it and use it in a way to promote awareness. You're  taking this WAY too seriously. Get a life!

There is a restaurant in Belmont Shore called "Me Soo Hungry". The name is almost tame in comparison to Ching-Chong-Ling-Long Gourmet Takeout, but I still wouldn't eat there, either.

It's just like the word fag, whore, gay, bitch, etc. There are movements out there where if you make the word common place, it loses it's stigma has a word loaded with hate. Some gals are proud to be called a bitch now. Whatev's, each to his/her own.

So, if a southern food restaurant owned and operated by blacks called  themselves "Niggers" would that be OK? Honestly, I would be offended. Why? Because my tax money is being used to bail them out. Ching-Chong-Ling-Long Gourmet Takeout is no exception. Why must my tax money pay them to fight racism with racism? I'm being to sensitive? Well, it is my money and my expectation of money is to improve the commons, no degrade a race of people in a backhanded way. So, yes the comments are offensive. Yes, they do have their First Amendment Rights, but at the expense of using our taxes?

Now, if they do pay taxes in full and don't accept tax breaks, then fine, I have no issue. But if they do and they would be stupid if they didn't, I want to see my tax money at better use.

I think you need to do some reading on racism, and let people of color define what's racist to them.

 Well then, Ching-Chong-Ling-Longis racist and I hope people respect the fact that it is and silence themselves.

Read a great book the other day called "the practical guide to racism". Great read on racism.

 I have to agree with a portion of the above response. This takes the whole fighting racism with jokes just a little too far. Im not even Asian and I dont want to even say the name of place, let alone go there. I get what they are trying to do, but its name that makes even this white person cringe and not want to spend my money there to even lend ANY credence whatsoever to this particular issue. Best thing that could have happened, was that this girl was forgotten. This is a good way to keep her noticed, not for the racism anymore but because she made a youtube video saying spouting some words some people, that business owner included, apparently finds comical. That owner has to find that string of words comical to some degree in order to reconcile himself with it all and then name his/her business after some racist bull-ish. This is really a daft move by the business owner. Similarly, a Mexican (which I am half) isnt going to name his business "Wetbacks Burritos"...if there is, please tell me a difference...oh yea, the millions of youtube videos jerking Mexicans around dont exist. That UCLA chicks video was moronic and the name of this business is just as...she be present for the grand opener. Might as well have the "celebrity" who offered you a schtick for your restaurant. Clearly, your lack of imagination will translate to the food. Sub-par imagination with a questionably business practice, leads me to think this will be sub-par food with questionable ingredients.

 wow. The emotion I had while typing this, led to some very awful grammar. I apologize for some of it. Some....

 Or in a Jewish neighborhood, a Jewish-owned deli called Auschwitz. There is a difference? One killed six millions humans while only a few hundred were hanged by a bunch of racist mobs during the gold rush era? I don't see the logic.

Libermann, so if a bunch of Jews created a restaurant and is benefiting off of your tax money by way of tax breaks  called Kikey's would you frequent the place? I would not and it's not good use of my tax money either

What on earth does bailouts have to do with this post...

 Gustavo, if you own a business, you're permitted tax breaks to get your business to prosper. The entrepreneur or corporation are allowed thousands to millions in deduction in taxes. So who picks up the loss in city, state and federal revenue? You do. You are bailing out this restaurant and your tax money is paying for everything they do.

So Gus, can if I start a business called Wetback Tacos, would you have an issue? Which includes Mojado Mole
