(WSCR) Less than two weeks after ESPN posted a racial headline referring to Knicks point guard Jeremy Lin, the network is at it again.

In the hours following the Steelers’ release of wide receiver Hines Ward, the network published a story to its website with the headline “No Happy Endings.”

The headline may seem innocent enough, but when Ward’s part-Asian background is revealed, the headline takes on a different meaning. Ward was born in South Korea and his mother is also Korean.
