Cheesesteaks and Xenophobia, Together Again

Straight from Mighty Dan Gross at the Daily News:

Chink’s Steaks (6030 Torresdale) is taking over Tugboat Annie’s (901 S. Columbus) and opening a smaller take-out-only Chink’s Steaks there in late March, says Chink’s owner Joseph Groh…Groh says he’s not too worried about any backlash about the shop’s name, which had drawn ire from Asian-Americans several years back. Chink’s was the childhood nickname given to the restaurant’s late former owner Samuel Sherman.

Just… ugh.
